Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

MIS Spine Surgery allows smaller incisions, potentially causing less trauma and scarring and faster recovery than traditional techniques. Dr. Song was the first neurosurgeon in Northern Nevada to perform a minimally invasive lumbar interbody fusion.


Sciatica describes an irritation of the sciatic nerve, the largest single nerve in the human body. Sciatic nerve irritation can result from compression of the sciatic nerve roots or from inflammation.

Brain Tumors

A brain tumor is an abnormal mass of tissue in which some cells grow and multiply uncontrollably, apparently unregulated by the mechanisms that control normal cells. The growth of a tumor takes up space within the skull and interferes with normal brain activity.

Our Specialties

Artificial Disc Replacement Surgery

Cervical Artificial Disc Replacements (ADR) are a FDA-approved alternative to Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion (ACDF) in the appropriate patients and clinical settings. ADRs, unlike fusions, maintain the motion through the disc space in the cervical spine.

Spine Tumor Resections

Spine tumor resections involve careful, methodical evaluation and consideration. Once a patient is diagnosed with a spinal tumor, Advanced Neurosurgery utilizes advanced imaging and a multidisciplinary team approach. 

Spinal Fusions

Spinal fusions involve fusing two or more bones in the cervical, thoracic, or lumbar spine plus or minus replacing the disc between them. There are many different types of spinal perfusions and many different approaches to fusing the spine if indicated.

Complex Spinal Revisions

Complex spinal revisions may involve short-segment or long-segment revisions. If you have a history of previous spine surgery with or without a fusion and have recurrent neck pain, arm pain, low back pain, leg pain, posture changes, and/or scoliosis, you may be a candidate for a revision surgery.

Brain Aneurysm Surgery

An aneurysm is an abnormal ballooning or outpouching of the wall of a blood vessel within the brain or on the meninges of the brain. If an aneurysm is to rupture it can lead to a stoke and a rapidly evolving collection of blood called a subarachnoid hemorrhage.

Brain Tumor Surgery

Brain tumor resections involve careful, methodical evaluation and consideration. Once a patient is diagnosed with a spinal tumor, Advanced Neurosurgery utilizes advanced imaging and a multidisciplinary team approach.

Peripheral Nerve Disorders

Peripheral nerve disorders or peripheral neuropathy is a dysfunction of the nerves outside of the brain or spinal column. Peripheral nerve disorders can occur for a number of metabolic, traumatic, toxic or infectious processes.

Herniated Disc Decompression

A herniated disc can result in compression of the spinal cord or the exiting nerve roots of the spinal cord which can result in pain, weakness, and numbness. In order to provide relief to the patient, careful evaluation of the patient is made with physical exam, …

General Neurosurgery

Advanced Neurosurgery offers evaluation and treatment for conditions of the brain, spine, and peripheral nerves. After a thorough examination and review of diagnostic results, the pros and cons of all available options will be reviewed and discussed.

Microsurgery of the Spinal Cord

Microsurgery is generally used to remove part of a damaged disc, as in a micro discectomy in the spine, by using minimally invasive techniques with a small incision, allowing for quicker and less painful recovery while minimizing complications such as infections.
