BayCare Clinic Neurological Surgeons offers comprehensive care for conditions of the brain, spine and nerves
Our brain, spine and nerve specialists are part of the most comprehensive neurological surgery team in northeastern Wisconsin and Upper Michigan. Our neurosurgeons work with a team of specialists to offer comprehensive care for conditions of the brain, spine and nerves.
Expert care is available 24 hours a day for medical emergencies, which include trauma, stroke or aneurysm.
We take pride in being the region’s longest-practicing neurological surgery team, combining more than 120 years of experience with innovative medical technology.
