The Department of Neurosurgery works independently and in conjunction with the departments of Orthopaedic Surgery, General Surgery, Rehabilitation Medicine, Oncology, and Radiology in the diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of spinal disorders. Neurosurgeons at UNM have the opportunity to utilize minimally invasive techniques and endoscopic laser spine surgery. The UNM Anthony Yeung Center for Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery, funded by a gift from UNM School of Medicine Alumni Dr. Anthony Yeung, is dedicated to advancing the field of minimally invasive spine surgery. Neurosurgery residents interested in a Spine Fellowship at UNM can find application information here.
