Neurological surgery

The strongest approach to spine care involves a team of specialists working together for the benefit of the patient: orthopedic spine surgeons working in conjunction with neurosurgical surgeons and spine therapists.

As part of this neurosurgical expertise, the neurosurgeons within Ann Arbor Spine Care are also a regional resource in neurosurgery, and also practice as Ann Arbor Neuroscience. These neurosurgeons, Dr. Jason Brodkey, Dr. Ahmad Issawi, Dr. Jayesh Thawani, and Dr. Elyne Kahn, receive neurosurgical referrals relating to brain injury, spinal cord problems and other neurosurgical issues.

Both Ann Arbor Spine Care and Ann Arbor Neuroscience are subsidiaries of Michigan Brain & Spine Institute.
