South Shore NeuroSpine

South Shore NeuroSpine—southeastern Massachusetts’ largest provider of neurosurgical care—has joined the South Shore Physician Ambulatory Enterprise (SSPAE). This partnership was the culmination of months of behind-the-scenes work designed to assure a stable neurosurgical platform at South Shore Hospital, something that is essential to our system of care –and to our South Weymouth and Boston communities.

Advanced Spine and Brain Surgery

The skilled team at South Shore NeuroSpine includes Stephen Johnson, MD, Jason Rahal, MD, Katharine Bills Woods, PA-C, and Megan Lee, PA-C. South Shore NeuroSpine is committed to providing the highest quality of coordinated neurological care—using some of the most innovative techniques and technology to perform complex procedures.

Specialties include:

  • Image-Guided Brain Surgery: involves computer generated imaging, coupled with advanced localization equipment, that allows for more accurate and less invasive approaches to the removal of brain tumors
  • Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery (MIS): a variety of surgical techniques which involve smaller incisions, reducing the amount of tissue damage beneath the skin. These procedures use specially designed instruments, helping your surgeon with visualization. Recent MIS innovations include artificial disc replacement, X-Stop® and Balloon Kyphoplasty®)
  • Neuro-Oncological Surgery
  • Complex Spine Surgery
  • Peripheral Nerve Surgery
  • Cranial Nerve Surgery

Additionally, as the first and only Level II Trauma Center in southeastern Massachusetts, we’re equipped to handle brain and spine trauma. Our specially trained surgeons can perform increasingly complex spinal and cranial surgeries, when every second counts.
