“We have a new technology called focused ultrasound, which we use to treat essential tremor, and I took care of a woman in her 90s who had a very severe debilitating tremor. I went to see her in the recovery room where she was eating soup for the first time in about three or four years, and she was just so happy to eat a bowl of soup. That’s why we do this kind of neurosurgery because we can give somebody their function back” remembers Dr. Gonzalez.

Neurosurgery is the medical specialty concerned with the prevention, diagnosis, surgical treatment, and rehabilitation of disorders which affect any portion of the nervous system including the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, and extra-cranial cerebrovascular system. Neurosurgeons are doctors who diagnose and treat problems with the nervous system, often by performing surgery on the brain or spine. They treat strokes, tumors, certain types of birth defects, infections, and head or spinal cord injuries.
