Committed to Our Communities
Neurological & Spinal Surgery (NSS), the right choice for you, has established itself as a leader in the treatment of neurosurgical disorders. At NSS, we are dedicated to serving our communities and providing knowledge and care to our patients and their loved ones. For the last 20 years, NSS has been made up of highly specialized neurosurgeons who have acquired their training and experience at highly reputable and prestigious medical centers such as Mayo Clinic, University of Illinois and Northwestern Memorial. This group provides advanced operative and non-operative treatment for the entire spectrum of brain, spine and peripheral nerve disorders. NSS is a leader in the treatment of brain and pituitary tumors, complex, microscopic and endoscopic brain and spine surgery and injuries. We also deal with other disorders such as stroke, movement disorders such as epilepsy and Parkinson surgery.
With office locations across Northwest Indiana, NSS plays a major role in bringing the latest technological advancements and neurosurgical therapies to patients in the area. The practice is one of the first in this region to perform minimally invasive microscopic spine surgery. The utilization of the latest technological advancements such as Gamma Knife and CyberKnife modalities, is available for the treatment of cerebral vascular and neurological disease, as well as trigeminal neuralgia and brain tumors. NSS is also the only physician group to perform Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) in Northwest Indiana.
All of our neurosurgeons have submitted publications and lectured in their specific areas of expertise as they continue to seek advancement in their field with each new patient they see. "I am certain that in the future, there shall be even more considerable challenges and advancement in the treatment of neurological disorders. The objective of NSS is to contribute to those advancements," said Dr. Hytham Rifai. "By combining emerging technologies and surgical expertise, NSS will continue to serve in the development and implementation of advanced treatment for neurosurgical patients throughout the Midwest."
