Dr. Vishal James Makker, M.D.

Board-Certified Neurosurgeon

Many people are unfamiliar with neurosurgery and what neurosurgeons do. Most believe that they focus on surgery/treatment of the brain, and while that is true, it is much more than that. Neurosurgeons treat and perform surgery on the nervous system. They are specifically trained to diagnose and treat back and neck pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, head injuries and illnesses including trigeminal neuralgia and Parkinson's disease.

Dr. James Makker is a board-certified neurosurgeon who has treated thousands of patients. He offers surgical and non-surgical treatments for a wide variety of neurological disorders and has been called upon as a consultant on major cases.
