Research has proven that care for complex categories like back and neck pain is best done through a Center of Excellence approach. In 2010, Georgia Neurological Surgery in Athens, GA, founded Georgia Comprehensive Spine, which combines the expertise of a Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation MD, spine neurosurgeons and a physical therapist working together under one roof. Through this spine center approach, we exhaust all non-surgical treatment options, including pain-relieving injections and physical therapy, in advance of spine surgery.
In addition to spine surgery, the neurosurgeons at Georgia Neurological Surgery treat patients with neurological disorders including brain tumor, aneurysm, spinal cord injury and carpal tunnel. Our main office is in Athens; we also have offices in Royston, Toccoa, Demorest, Monroe, Winder and Greensboro.
Because our spine surgeons specialize in minimally invasive surgery techniques, many patients can have their surgery at the GNS Surgery Center and be home later the same day to recover at home. Click here to learn more.
