A Focus on Minimally Invasive Surgical Techniques

Dr. Nakaji is board certified by the American Board of Neurological Surgeons, and was recently appointed the director of the Neurosurgery Residency Program at the Barrow Neurological Institute, the largest neurosurgery residency program in the country.

Dr. Nakaji is highly published and has years of experience in the field of minimally invasive neuroendoscopy, or "keyhole" treatment. Benefits of minimally invasive surgery include reduced trauma, faster recovery, minimized pain and discomfort, and in some cases, completely scarless treatment. Dr. Nakaji's minimally invasive techniques include endoscopic endonasal surgeryradiosurgery, and thermal laser ablation

During a thorough examination and review of your medical history, Dr. Nakaji can begin formulating an individualized treatment plan, and will work closely with you to discuss each available treatment option. We focus heavily on patient education, and believe informed patients enjoy the highest success rates after treatment. 

Benefits of Treatment at Barrow Neurological Institute

Our patients enjoy a comprehensive approach to treatment when they visit Dr. Nakaji at Barrow Neurosurgical Associates, and can concurrently receive care from oncologists, general physicians, and other specialists on site. Dr. Nakaji's practice is based at Barrow Neurological Institute, is the largest neurology and neurosurgery specialty institute in the country, and utilizes the most advanced equipment for treatments like 3D endoscopy, image guidance, laser ablation surgery, and radiosurgery.

Since many of Dr. Nakaji's patients are referrals and live outside Phoenix, or even outside the country, he employs telemedicine, when necessary, to communicate with them and their doctors. Using this technology, Dr. Nakaji can analyze each patient's diagnostics and scans, and discuss treatment options before they visit our office. This provides information and comfort to off-site patients, and can shorten the length of time their families must stay in Phoenix during their care. For some treatments, we are able to arrange for our patients to fly in, undergo surgery, and fly out the next day.

Each patient under our care is treated with kindness and specialized treatment to address not only their health condition, but their individual concerns. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Nakaji today to learn more about how our services can help improve your quality of life.
