Local Medical Practice Welcomes Neurosurgeon

By Christina Haley O'Neal, posted Feb 27, 2018
Atlantic Neurosurgical & Spine Specialists, medical practice in minimally invasive spinal surgical techniques in Southeastern North Carolina, has welcomed Jeffrey Beecher to the practice, according to a news release.

Beecher has expanded the region’s spectrum of care and surgical expertise available to patients who suffer strokes, aneurysms, brain tumors and other blood vessel abnormalities of the brain and spine, officials said in the release.

After medical school at Touro University in Nevada, Beecher completed a neurological surgery residency at Hofstra University at North Shore University Hospital followed by two distinguished fellowships.

The first was at University of Texas, Southwestern in Dallas, where he studied complex aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations and carotid disease as well as complex brain tumors with one of the nation’s leading cerebrovascular surgeons. The second was at the Gates Vascular Institute in Buffalo, New York, where he trained in the minimally invasive method of treating aneurysms and cerebrovascular diseases at the center for endovascular neurosurgery. 
“There is no doubt that Dr. Beecher’s arrival will improve patient outcomes and reduce deaths and disabilities as a result of stroke and aneurysms throughout the region,” Atlantic Neurosurgical & Spine Specialists' George VanBuren Huffmon said in the release.

“Prior to Dr. Beecher’s arrival, some acute stroke and aneurysm patients had to travel to Duke or Chapel Hill for this level of care, sometimes resulting in further brain injury or even death," he added.
Atlantic’s spinal surgical team is also enhancing regional care and capacity, with Huffmon, one of few neurosurgeons in the United States certified to conduct lateral lumbar fusions using the Mazor RobotX, officials said.
