Comprehensive Conditions We Treat with Neurosurgical Expertise

Munson Healthcare’s neurosurgery team has years of experience treating a variety of conditions affecting or involving the brain, spine, and nervous system. In our 50-year history of neurosurgical excellence, we’ve consistently delivered positive outcomes and personalized care for the northern Michigan community.
