Bradley Wallace, MD, PhD
A certified Diplomate of the American Board of Neurological Surgeons, Dr. Wallace has benefitted from international training, having earned his doctorate degree in neuroscience in Grenoble, France and his medical degree in Little Rock, Arkansas. He completed his neurological surgery residency at the University of Florida in Gainesville and his fellowship in functional and stereotactic neurosurgery in France. Dr. Wallace is one of the first in the country to use Mazor Robotics for Deep Brain Stimulation. His areas of focus include:
Degenerative Spine Surgery
Lumbar Disk Herniation
Back Pain Surgery
Neck Pain Surgery
Deep Brain Stimulation
Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery
A Neurological Surgeon provides the operative and non-operative management (i.e. prevention, diagnosis, evaluation, treatment, critical care and rehabilitation) of disorders of the central, peripheral and autonomic nervous systems, including their supporting structures and vascular supply; the evaluation and treatment of pathological processes that modify the function or activity of the nervous system, including the hypophysis; and the operative and non-operative management of pain. A Neurological Surgeon encompasses the surgical, non-surgical, and stereotactic radiosurgical treatment of adult and pediatric patients with disorders of the nervous system; disorders of the brain, meninges, skull, and skull base, and their blood supply, including the surgical and endovascular treatment of disorders of the intracranial and extracranial vasculature supplying the brain and spinal cord; disorders of the pituitary gland; disorders of the spinal cord, meninges, and vertebral column, including those that may require treatment by fusion, instrumentation, or endovascular techniques; and disorders of the cranial, peripheral and spinal nerves throughout their distribution.

From the Doctor:
I believe in a conservative, patient-centered approach to patient care. It is important for me to understand what options the patient has tried, and failed, before considering surgery as an option. I will only do for the patient what I would do for my own family member.
I am able to offer my patients cutting-edge, minimally invasive procedures including deep brain stimulation for movement disorders, a procedure performed together with a neurologist to alleviate tremors caused by Parkinson’s disease. Many neurosurgical procedures, including deep brain stimulation, can be performed on an outpatient basis or with an overnight stay in the hospital.
I believe that the conversation between patient and physician is an important part of the treatment process. By talking with the patient about diagnosis and treatment options, we are able to create a plan of care together.
