Patient resources

We understand that as a neurosurgery patient, you have a lot to think about. To help ease your mind and set you on the path to recovery, we have gathered resources many patients find helpful in preparation for care.

Virtual office visits

Our surgeons routinely perform virtual office visits, which enable them to meet with patients remotely. We then create a tailored video of instructions to help each patient understand their individual treatment plan. A digital copy of the virtual office visit and the instruction video are sent to the patient prior to their procedure.
