Preserve the Nerve Pledge

preservethenerve

At Princeton Neurological Surgery, we pledge to focus on preserving and restoring neurologic function for our patients. Normal brain and spine function may be compromised when delicate nervous tissue is compressed by tumors, trauma, and/or chronic degenerative disease. Significant or prolonged neuronal compression may result in permanent neurologic dysfunction including sensory loss, weakness, cognitive impairment, stroke, coma, paralysis and death. For example, a tumor within the right side of the brain may cause left sided weakness. Alternatively, a disc herniation in the low back may cause pain, numbness and/or weakness in one or both legs. In either case, compression of nerves affects normal nerve function and left untreated may result in irreversible damage. Therefore, it is essential to decompress nervous tissue quickly and completely in order to preserve healthy brain and spine function and ultimately to maintain quality of life.

Preserving the nerve begins with making an accurate diagnosis that relies on intimate knowledge and understanding of the nervous system. At Princeton Neurological Surgery, Dr. Lipani, a board certified, fellowship trained neurological surgeon, spends quality time with each patient and carefully reviews their records and imaging studies. The next step is to implement an effective treatment strategy that is individually tailored to each patient. Dr. Lipani offers the latest neurosurgical options which include invasive, minimally invasive and non-invasive techniques to achieve the best surgical outcomes.
