We provide a thorough evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerve, with subspecialty trained neurosurgeons.  Through both inpatient and outpatient services we offer a high standard of individualized care to each of our patients, under the dynamic leadership of Dr. Sunjay Sharma (Head of Service, Neurosurgery, Hamilton General Hospital) and Dr. Femi Ajani (Head of Service, Pediatric Neurosurgery, McMaster Children’s Hospital).
