Medical Specialty: Neurosurgery

Trinity's neurosurgery center is one of the foremost centers in the Northern Plains. The program uses a multidisciplinary approach to provide a complete range of services for the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of patients with head, neck and spinal disorders.

Peripheral Nerve Surgery

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome - Decompresses or releases pressure on the median nerve of the wrist. Eases pain, numbness, grip weakness, tingling and other symptoms associated with carpal tunnel.

Ulnar Nerve Transposition - Releases ulnar nerve which has "crossed over" the elbow and become entrapped, producing arm and elbow pain.

Shunt Placement - Promotes normal flow of cerebral spinal fluid which has become blocked due to brain swelling, tumor, or disruption in fluid reabsorption pathways from blood or other debris. Alleviates increased intracranial pressure and lessens threat of hydrocephalus or excess water within the head.
