CINN treats a wide range of neuro-related pain disorders, from common back and neck pain, to facial pain, to various types of headaches. Non-surgical solutions for these conditions are managed through the physiatry and neurology teams at CINN. These practitioners have specialized expertise in utilizing an array of therapies, medications and other non-surgical means to control tangoporno pain. Unfortunately, in some circumstances these non-invasive or minimally invasive therapies are not effective and surgical options, including Gamma Knife stereotactic radiosurgery, should be explored. At that point patients are referred to a highly trained, subspecialized, CINN neurosurgeon who might be able to provide a surgical solution.

The following section of the CINN website provides an overview of back and neck pain, facial pain and headaches, along with the various treatment options available through CINN. If you have further questions regarding our services, or would like to schedule an appointment with a CINN physician, please call 1-800-446-1234.

Neck pain
Neck pain accounts for almost 1% of all visits to a primary care physician in the United States and may result from abnormalities in the soft tissues – the muscles, ligaments, and nerves – as well as in bones and joints of the spine.
Low Back pain
Ninety percent of lower back pain (LBP) cases are benign and typically subside within six weeks regardless of treatment method. The diagnosis and treatment of the remaining 10 percent are more challenging, however, and demand strict adherence—both from the physician and the patient—to the latest clinical rubias19 guidelines and recommendations. Based on current literature, a multidisciplinary approach combining drug treatment with physical and patient education has proven to be the most successful treatment of back pain.

The Chicago Institute of Neurosurgery and Neuroresearch Medical Group (CINN) is one of the nation’s leading organizations for the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of people with brain and spine disorders. Originally founded in 1987, CINN is one of the Midwest’s largest teams of neurosurgeons known for their pioneering treatments in minimally invasive techniques.

President and medical director of CINN, Dr. Leonard J. Cerullo, founded CINN in 1987 in order to develop an environment that offered the neurosurgical patient something different, something unique, something better. He felt that patients whose conditions required super-specialized care needed a special kind of attention – a focus not only on the medical conditions, but also on the emotional needs during this difficult time in their lives.

Today CINN is comprised of neurosurgeons, physiatrists, and neurologists complemented by 2 clinical psychologists, working together to provide an interdisciplinary approach to patient care of the highest caliber. Over the past twelve months, CINN physicians have evaluated nearly 10,000 new patients and performed approximately 4,000 surgeries at six hospitals throughout Chicagoland. CINN treats more patients with brain tumors and spine disorders than any other physician group in Illinois.
