Thank You for Choosing Us as Top Docs in 2009, 2011, 2013 and again in 2015!

MBSP is a leading authority on pain management and minimally invasive surgical treatment of brain and spine conditions. Our extensive experience in neurosurgery brings you peace of mind; our expertise and skill bring you relief of pain.

Established in 1984, our team of physician specialists handles even the most complex ailments, including sports injuries, diseases of the brain and spine, concussions, back and neck pain, sciatica and herniated discs. We combine neurosurgical expertise, compassion and state-of-the-art technology to stop the pain and return you to the quality of life you once enjoyed.

Our neurosurgeons have a deep understanding about complicated nerve issues – pain, leg weakness, etc. – and are experienced in working around the delicate structures of the nervous system.

At MBSP we respect your time, and don’t rush you. Our doctors, physician assistants and nurse practitioners listen to you and answer all your questions. We possess extraordinary knowledge in spine, brain and pain conditions. We relieve your pain with a treatment plan specifically customized for your need, which is why we treat our patients holistically – on both a professional and personal level. We know you are more than your pain or illness – you are a mother, daughter, husband, brother, dad, teacher…

Our patients say it comes down to three factors when choosing a doctor: Expertise, Trust and Empathy:

  • Expertise in their area of medicine, whether it’s brain, spine, or pain-related issues;
  • The peace of mind that comes with knowing you can trust your doctor to do what is best for you;
  • And the ability of your doctor to empathize and understand your feelings about your condition.

Sometimes, you need the reassurance when it comes to a medical diagnosis or treatment plan. We welcome patients seeking a second opinion. 100% of the people who come to us for a second opinion stay with us as patients for their entire treatment plan.

Whether you need a pain management program, or minimally invasive brain or spine surgery, the medical team at MBSP are the ones to whom you can turn, and trust.
