Office visit for the issues I have. I was very impressed. They explained everything so that I fully understood my problems. Seemed truly interested in me.

Pam Walker
Spinal Fusion

I needed a spinal fusion and was scared to death. My life was painful and it hurt to walk. He convinced me this was the best course of care. Well, I’m 6 months post surgery and my life style is back to normal! I am back to hiking and biking again. I wouldn’t go to anyone else and have referred him to friends.

Frequently Asked Questions

What insurances do you accept? 

We participate in all major insurance plans.

Do I need to have a doctor's referral?

It is better to see your primary care physician at the outset of your journey. He or she can order appropriate tests, which can help determine whether you need to see a neurosurgeon. We can accept patients without a referral in some instances.

Where do you perform surgery?

We perform surgeries in state-of-the-art operating rooms at Research Medical Center and Overland Park Regional Medical Center.

How long does it take to get a surgery scheduled? 

After your initial appointment with your neurosurgeon for a head or brain treatment, we will schedule you for any additional, necessary tests. If you arrive with all the studies needed to diagnose the problem and surgery is indicated, your surgery can be scheduled usually within two to four weeks.

Do most people who visit a neurosurgeon ultimately require surgery? 

No, only a portion of our patients go on to surgery. After we establish a diagnosis, the physician will outline various treatment options. You and your physician will arrive at the best solution for your particular problem, which may require surgery, but may also respond to epidural steroid injections, physical therapy, or a “wait and watch” approach.
