What we do
Dr. Zunkeler, a neurosurgeon, treats patients with problems that involve the spine, brain, or peripheral nerves. The method of treatment is not always surgical. Patients are evaluated, and possible treatment options are discussed with the patients and their families. The possible treatment for a condition may include non-surgical and surgical options. CT-guided spinal steroid injections are performed by Dr. Zunkeler for some patients to treat symptoms non-surgically.
This web site provides information for new patients as well as information for patients who come to the office for follow-up visits.
If you were asked to see Dr. Zunkeler for an independent medical evaluation (IME), you can use this site for preparation.
