Teaching, Delivering Highly Specialized Care, and Developing Cutting-Edge Research

The UK College of Medicine Department of Neurosurgery is focused on teaching residents, delivering highly specialized clinical care, and developing cutting-edge research that changes the way patients are treated.

We offer treatment for the following disorders: cerebral aneurysms, carotid stenosis, stroke, intervertebral disc herniations, spinal cord and brain tumors, peripheral nerve entrapment, hydrocephalus, myelomeningocele, spasticity, and intractable epilepsy.

We also offer stereotactic surgery, spinal fixation for trauma or metastasis, microsurgery, laser surgery, interstitial radiotherapy, chemotherapy, and Gamma Knife radiosurgery.

UK is the seventh in the nation and the only hospital in Kentucky to add Gamma Knife radiosurgery, which is a revolutionary method of brain surgery that allows our specialists to operate on the brain without cutting the skin.
