This content was provided by Dr. Haglund "Im an epilepsy surgeon and specialize in waking up patients during the middle of the surgery so we can check their language area and remove the epileptic area. We also have a new cutting-edge procedure thats just come out involving laser ablation. Its basically outpatient brain surgery. You make a tiny hole in the back of the skull to remove the hippocampus something that used to take six hours of surgery that now takes about 45 minutes and you go home the next day. My other specialty is cervical and lumbar spine disease mainly cervical. Ive done over 4700 cervical procedures since Ive been at Duke about 300 a year. Before surgery I think its important to sit down with patients and discuss the images of their condition. We take time to show them their films and go over everything with them then make sure weve outlined what their surgery is going to involve. One of the things Duke has thats very important is the Duke Spine Center a team that comes together to provide a complete range of outstanding spine care including conservative care surgical approaches and follow up."
