NCN Updates

Our professional staff is dedicated to working with our patients and their insurance companies to make the surgical scheduling experience as easy as possible. National Capital Neurosurgery is based on and continues to follow the principles of one of the oldest private neurosurgical practices in the Washington, DC area. The longevity of our practice is based on the trust and satisfaction of our referring physicians and our patients and their families. We continue to have the highest respect in the community and amongst the hospital staffs. As medicine changes, NCN will continue to provide the highest quality of neurosurgical care from brain surgery to spine surgery.

We work closely with our hospital partners to insure that our patients have access to the latest technology including computer assisted intra-operative navigation. We are assisted in our hospital care by Intensivists and highly skilled neurosurgical Physician Assistants. We maintain leadership positions at all the hospitals where we regularly admit patients. We are able to offer the convenience of performing surgery at the Advanced Surgery Center of Bethesda for spinal disc surgery as well as other outpatient procedures. Resident training is a part of our practice and we are part of the military neurosurgery and George Washington University neurosurgery training programs. We are Preferred Providers and accept Kaiser, Medicare and most insurances.

As a private practice, National Capital Neurosurgery treats each patient with an exceptional level of care and attention. Histories are taken and all imaging studies are personally reviewed by the neurosurgeon, allowing us to provide the most thoughtful recommendations for treatment.

Our practice provides neurosurgical expertise in a variety of areas of neurological surgery. We have embraced the tradition of classical "hands-on", personal relationships with patients and referring physician while keeping pace with modern technology.
