Neurosurgery

Community Hospital Anderson's neurosurgical program provides state-of-the-art diagnostics and intra-operative navigational equipment to treat many neurosurgical conditions, including complex brain and spinal disorders, peripheral nerve problems, cancers and movement disorders.

Community has invested in the O-arm® which is a surgical imaging system with StealthStation® navigation. This technology is an intra-operative CT machine which makes the placement of spine instrumentation safe and fast. The O-arm delivers simple and fast access to real-time three-dimensional images. It allows our surgeons to obtain a higher level of precision in neurosurgical procedures.

Two of Community's neurosurgeons, James Callahan, M.D. and Daniel Kim, M.D., provide the highest level of brain and spine care to patients.
