Dr. Puccioni’s Patients Say...
“Puccioni and his team saved my little boy’s life! No words could ever express how grateful I am! You are all amazing.”- Brian H.
“Dr. Mark Puccioni is Amazing! He helped our daughter by finding the source of her daily debilitating migraines was not actually migraines but increased intracranial pressure. She had a cyst that was blocking blood flow out of her brain. We have been to doctors all over and recently found Dr. Puccioni. He immediately said she had been misdiagnosed for 4 years. She underwent brain surgery with a craniotomy. Not something we entered into lightly. He removed her cyst 1 month ago and has not had a headache since. We are so very grateful that we have Dr. Puccioni! He gave our daughter her life back! And he was right here in Nebraska! We are so blessed to have such a skilled and talented surgeon in our backyard!” - Shelli S.

Winner, Neurosurgeon - Dr. Bradley Bowdino
Dr. Bradley Bowdino provides care for both adult and pediatric patients in his practice with a particular interest in clinical problems related to the skull base and the treatment of those diseases. Complex spinal instrumentation and minimally invasive surgery including vertebroplasty are additional areas of special concentration. A native of Hamilton, Montana, he continues to enjoy a variety of outdoor activities at every opportunity.
Dr. Bowdino's Patients Say...
"This is a nationally top rated neurosurgery practice. Dr Bowdino is straightforward and conservative in his approach. No surgery just to make money. He is down to earth and not an egotist. He has never been condescending to me as an older and single woman. I have had two surgeries and a non-surgical outcome by Dr Bowdino that were all excellent. I really appreciate that the imaging center is right downstairs and gets results to the doctor quickly. I’ve had images done the same day, rarely waiting more than 30 minutes. Coming from out of town this saves a lot of time and money. Time is allowed for adequate healing before physical therapy." - Laurie H.
