Our neurosurgeons primarily provide surgical treatment for patients with spine problems, spinal cord injuries and disorders, and peripheral nerve and brain conditions. Although many patients in need of a neurosurgeon experience neck and back pain, others may experience pain in other parts of their body or exhibit additional symptoms, such as dizziness, a tingling sensation or numbness, a sharp, “electrical” sensation, and muscle weakness. Seeing a neurosurgeon can help determine the cause of your symptoms. They can also develop a surgical and/or treatment plan to meet your needs and address your individual conditions.

Whether you have a referral to see a specialist or need to be admitted for an overnight stay at the hospital, our neurologists offer a full-spectrum of care. Outpatient neurology services are available at our Southeast Georgia Physician Associates clinics in Brunswick. Inpatient neurology services are available on our Brunswick Campus, and our neurologists collaborate with our Emergency Care Centers at both the Brunswick and Camden campuses to meet the needs of our patients.

When you need a neurologist

Our board-certified, fellowship-trained neurologists have the skills and extensive experience to address a variety of conditions, including:

  • Epilepsy and other seizures disorders
  • Headaches, including migraines
  • Movement disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease and essential tremor
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Neuromuscular disorders, such as myasthenia gravis
  • Neuropathy (numbness, tingling or other signs of nerve damage)
  • Stroke

What to expect from an outpatient neurology visit

In our outpatient clinics, patients are typically referred to us by their primary care doctors or an emergency room physician. First visits are often longer to allow our team time to get to know you and your medical history. Your neurologist will perform a physical and neurological exam. They may also recommend imaging tests and advanced neurological studies, such as:

  • Electromyography to study nerves and muscles
  • Electroencephalogram (EEG) to record brain activity and help diagnose or rule out epilepsy or other disorders

After making a diagnosis, your neurologist will discuss a treatment plan with you. Some of the neurology treatments we offer are:

  • Medications to control seizures or tremors
  • Botox injection procedures to treat migraine headaches
  • Physical therapy to improve walking and balance problems

When your neurology problem could be helped with surgery

Our neurologists collaborate with neurosurgeons at Southeast Georgia Health System and may refer you to one, if your condition could be helped by surgery.

While neurologists focus on the medical treatment of neurologic issues, neurosurgeons perform surgery on tumors, aneurysms, spinal cord disorders and other conditions.

Children who need neurosurgery can receive telemedicine evaluations, consultations and follow-up care with a pediatric neurosurgeon at Wolfson Children’s at Southeast Georgia Health System.
