Other Conditions Treated

Neurosurgery of Kalamazoo offers comprehensive treatment of disorders related to nerves that are outside the brain or spinal cord. The peripheral nerves can be damaged by disease and trauma. There are actually more than 100 types of peripheral nerve disorders.
Movement disorders are highly complex and require a multidisciplinary approach to treatment. Our neurosurgeons provide advanced surgical options to appropriate candidates for managing these symptoms of these disorders.



Cubital Tunnel Syndrome

This condition, also called “ulnar nerve entrapment,” happens to the ulnar nerve in your elbow. This nerve travels along the inner side of your elbow and down to your hand. It’s the nerve that makes the jolt you feel when you bump your “funny bone.” With this condition, your ulnar nerve is compressed, stretched or irritated.


Ulnar Nerve Transposition

This surgery relieves pressure on the ulnar nerve at the elbow. It moves the nerve to keep it from being compressed by the medial epicondyle (a bony bump on the inner side of your elbow).


Carpal Tunnel Release (Open Technique)


Bursitis of the Hip (Trochanteric Bursitis)

This is an irritation or swelling of the trochanteric bursa. This small, fluid-filled sac is found on the outer side of the femur. It acts as a cushion for the iliotibial band, a thick tendon in your leg.
