Each location—four in Missouri and two in Illinois—is accepting new patients.

Neurosurgery of St. Louis, an independent physician’s group serving St. Louis and Metro East Illinois, is expanding in the area, having expanded its presence in the region and now has a total of six locations.

The practice started in 2022, and so far, this year it has added three additional locations and expanded its team of neurosurgeons and nurse practitioners to twelve. The group now has six locations in Illinois and Missouri, as well as a new Specialty Surgery Center of St. Louis which is located in the Walker Medical Building. The practice specializes in treating common brain and spine conditions including brain tumors, cervical and lumbar spine conditions, and spinal stenosis. 

"It’s a very exciting time to be part of NSL because of what this growth will allow us to achieve from a quality care standpoint," NSL’s Managing Partner Dr. Michael Polinsky, said in an emailed release. "What this means for patients is that we’re able to offer even more highly specialized care in a more accessible way for people. These additional locations, as well as the new surgery center, will allow us to bring specialized care closer to our patients."

Each location—four in Missouri and two in Illinois—is accepting new patients.

"This has been our vision since 2019. Our vision all along was to have a group of like-minded surgeons who believe in patient-centered care," Dr. Neill Wright, the organization’s medical director, said in the release. "We wanted to deliver patient care in a way that we thought was better for the patient and offered faster access to care.  It’s taken us two years to get to this point, but we feel very invigorated that we are doing something that we truly believe will change the way patients receive care for the better. It’s a new way of delivering expert neurosurgical care."
