The Washington University Department of Neurosurgery is proud to extend its practice to St. Charles County, providing premier patient care and advanced procedures and clinical trials.
Patients benefit from our team approach to care by experienced, skilled physicians and nurses who will collaborate to develop and provide the most appropriate treatment for each patient.
Advantages the Neurosurgery Center offers our patients:
- Surgical expertise: The Barnes Jewish St. Peters Neurosurgery Clinic offers patients the latest technologies and techniques, many developed by our board-certified surgeons.
- Minimally invasive treatments: Our methods are often less invasive and more effective, with faster recovery times.
- Non-surgical treatments: Surgery is not always what the patient requires. Our team evaluates each patient and provides a recommendation that fits their conditions.
- Comprehensive care: We specialize in specific types of disorders as well as specific locations within the spine, such as the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar areas.
- Nationally accredited program: Neurosurgery Clinic patients will have access to some of the highest levels of clinical spine care available in the U.S.
Conditions We Treat
- Back pain: Low back pain may be a symptom of many different causes including overuse, injury, degeneration of the vertebrae, infection, a tumor, obesity, poor muscle tone, muscle spasm, strain, muscle tears, joint problems, smoking, slipped disk or disease.
- Degenerative disc disease: Normal changes that occur to the disc in the spinal cord as a person ages.
- Herniated disc: A tear or rupture of a disc in the spinal canal that causes pain.
- Myelopathy: A disorder that results in severe compression of the spinal cord. It is most commonly caused by spinal stenosis, spinal trauma and spinal infections.
- Radiculopathy: A condition due to a compressed nerve in the spine that can cause pain, numbness, tingling, or weakness in the lower back and in the neck.
- Sciatica: Pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve, which originates in the lower back through your hips and buttocks and down each leg.
- Spinal stenosis: A condition in which the spinal canal narrows and pinches the nerves, resulting in back and leg pain.
- Spondylolisthesis: A vertebral malalignment, most commonly involving a bone (vertebra) slipping forward over the bone below it.
When more conservative treatments, such as physical therapy or medication, does not provide optimal relief, our neurosurgeons work closely together, each bringing a unique perspective to patient cases. As a result, spine treatment is based on the patient’s specific disorder, not on the expertise of the physician who first examines the patient.
