Have you had a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan? Do you have questions regarding the result, whether it was positive or negative? If so, why not seek a second opinion—one that includes an MRI review?

Dr. Tom Wascher and the Wascher Cervical Spine Institute (W.C.S.I.) can provide you with the experience and the expertise that you need to confirm or correct your diagnosis. As a leader in the field of neurosurgery—particularly in matters involving the cervical spine, and the base of the skull, Dr. Wascher has been treating patients for a quarter of a century. Along the way, he has frequently been recognized among the top surgeons and best doctors in America.

Even if you feel confident in the accuracy of your diagnosis, you would be wise to seek an MRI review with Dr. Wascher. Your health is much too important to not consider all your options. Dr. Wascher may detect something that was missed in your original diagnosis, discover a misdiagnosis, suggest alternative treatment options, or give confirmation that your current treatment is already on the right track. He may also identify possible complications and make practical suggestions to reduce your post-surgery recovery time. The goal is to avoid surgery if at all possible and to suggest surgery only if the benefits outweigh the risks.

As a fellowship-trained neurosurgeon, Dr. Wascher has had extensive experience treating patients with cervical and lumbar disc herniations, cervical foraminal stenosis, cervical myelopathy, cervical osteoarthritis, and an array of other cervical spine disorders. In the process, he has successfully performed thousands of surgeries including cervical fusions, cervical discectomies, cervical decompressions, and cervical corpectomies.

Though Dr. Wascher is a world-class neurosurgeon, he endeavors to explore all nonsurgical options first. Among the innovations Dr. Wascher has introduced to the Appleton area is stereotactic radiosurgery, a minimally invasive procedure that is possible through the assistance if medical imaging technologies such as MRI. State of the art technology like the Cyberknife® now make it possible to treat many cerebral, cervical, and spinal conditions—including spinal tumors and lesions—that are difficult if not impossible to treat with conventional surgical techniques. Furthermore, because the trauma to the body is minimal, the recovery time can be greatly reduced. With Dr. Wascher's experience, he can determine if your condition makes you a candidate for such procedures.
