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.

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 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, …
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.

What Our Patients Are Saying About Us
Top Notch Surgeon!
“Dr. Song, in my eyes is a top notch surgeon. I have to say that when I first came to him many years ago. Dr. Song did everything to help me to get to surgery prior to a trip to Alaska for my daughter’s wedding. Without Dr. Song, I would have no quality of life, but after Dr. Song I am able to enjoy traveling.”
As Good As It Gets
“Dr. Song is as good as it gets. I had 2 prior surgeries with another doctor and they failed. I had terrible arm pain and numbness along with breathing issues. I came to see Dr. Song for a consult and had surgery with him. I am so much better now. It’s like magic.”
His Team Are Amazing!
“Dr. Song and his team are amazing! I always said I will NEVER have surgery on my back, but the pain just got worse. I knew as soon as I woke up from surgery that Dr. Song had fixed me! He changed my life from non-functioning and always in pain to being able to return to normal activities pain free. All of the staff has been amazing to work with. Thank you Dr. Song!”
