We offer a full range of neurosurgical techniques to provide the most up-to-date treatments for the entire spectrum of neurosurgical diseases. Our philosophy is to compassionately manage the care of the patient using all means to establish improvement through nonsurgical means, if possible. However, we are able to offer a wide variety of surgical treatments in the event that surgery becomes necessary.

The vertebral column, also called the backbone, is made up of 33 vertebrae that are separated by spongy disks and classified into four distinct areas. The cervical spine consists of seven bony parts in the neck; the thoracic spine consists of 12 bony parts in the back area; the lumbar spine consists of five bony segments in the lower back area; five sacral* bones; and four coccygeal* bones (the number of coccygeal bones can vary from five to three).

A brain tumor is an abnormal growth of tissue in the brain. The tumor can either originate in the brain itself, or come from another part of the body and travel to the brain (metastasize). Brain tumors may be classified as either benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous), depending on their behavior.

There are many reasons people suffer from back and neck pain. We believe that conservative treatment is necessary in most instances before surgery is attempted. We refer patients for physical therapy, if needed. When therapy does not solve the issues, pain management may be tried. This treatment option can involve injection therapy, medication management, or a more structured program to include psychologic assessment and the institution of appropriate treatments.

Dr. Morgan can perform some injection therapies but will often refer to a more specialized pain management physician for other procedures. We provide epidural and other injection therapy for pain management. We also work closely with several pain management programs to provide other more specialized pain management treatments.

  • Caudal Steroid Injection
  • Cervical Epidural Steroid Injection
  • Cervical Facet Radiofrequency Neurotomy
  • Cervical Selective Nerve Root Block
  • Cervical Transforaminal Epidural Steroid Injection
  • Costrovetebral Block
  • Facet Joint Injections
  • Lumbar Radiofrequency Neurotomy
  • Lumbar Sympathetic Block
  • Lumbar Transforaminal Epidural Steroid Injection
  • Medial Branch Block
  • Sacroiliac Joint Steroid Injection
  • Stellate Ganglion Block
  • Thoracic Epidural Steroid Injection
  • Thoracic Facet Radiofrequency Neurotomy
  • Thoracic Transforaminal Epidural Steroid Injection

We work closely with several pain management providers, and we will try to refer you to one who we feel would be best suited for your needs. They will work closely with us and provide appropriate feedback if their care is not able to solve your pain syndrome and if surgery needs to be an option. Also, we only feel comfortable managing pain with narcotic medications to a certain point and may feel the need to refer to one of these programs if the medication choice or frequency puts you in a position where they would be better suited for treating you. Please realize that we only will allow you to receive pain medications from one source, and if we become aware that there is a situation where you are receiving medications from multiple sources, we may discontinue our management of your medications.
