Neurosurgeon Dr. Timothy Spencer of Greater Michigan Spine & Neurosurgery in Battle Creek, Mich., offers minimally-invasive procedures at Hillsdale Hospital. Spencer specializes in a comprehensive, minimally-invasive approach to surgical treatments of the spine.

His guiding philosophy is to reserve invasive procedures as a last resort, but if they do become necessary, to apply the procedure best suited for the patient’s specific problem in order to enhance their outcome. Minimally-invasive surgery can be done on an outpatient basis, meaning patients are discharged from the hospital in less than 24 hours. There is also significantly less trauma to the body and substantially shorter healing times.

Patients can now see Dr. Spencer in his Battle Creek or Mount Pleasant office and, when needed, have their surgery at Hillsdale Hospital. To book an appointment with Dr. Spencer or for general inquiries, call (269) 841-4350.
