How We Approach Neurosurgery and Brain Surgery
When it comes to your brain, we understand that the thought of surgery can be daunting. Our neurosurgeons are highly skilled to take on a wide range of conditions. Conditions MD West ONE doctors provide treatment for include brain cancers, brain tumors, traumatic brain injuries, skull malformations, movement disorders and trigeminal neuralgia and more.
Depending on your unique diagnosis, there may be different types of treatment options available. Our surgeons employ a conservative approach, and only recommend surgery if there are no other options available.

PATIENT SUCCESS STORIES
“I had a severely bad bulging disk which was pinching two nerves. Talk about a lot of pain for 2 years! I’ve done everything from chiropractors, acupuncture, messages, and injections. But once I talked to Dr. Bowdino and decided surgery was the best option I felt very confident in our decision. He did a fantastic job! I would STRONGLY recommend going to MD West ONE.” -Shelby S.
