The UAB Medicine Neurosurgery Clinic (formerly Neurosurgery & Spine Associates of Central Alabama, P.C.) offers comprehensive spinal and neurosurgical care. Our practice consists of two board certified neurosurgeons, F. Donovan Kendrick, M.D. and Dr. John M. Kast (joining January 2019), as well as Jeffry G. Pirofsky, D.O., a board certified physiatrist specializing in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
Our goal is to provide quality surgical & non-surgical care, getting each patient back to a healthy and active lifestyle as soon as possible. With Neurosurgery & Spine Associates you have the unique option of being referred directly to one of our Neurosurgeons for surgical consultation or, if preferred, referral to our Physiatrist for conservative management of neurosurgical disorders. In most instances patients will not need immediate surgery. Dr. Pirofsky’s expertise in non-surgical management of spine disorders may alleviate the need for neurosurgical intervention.
Our services include the diagnosis and treatment of surgical disorders of the brain, spine, and peripheral nervous system. We are current on all the latest technology, including the latest in minimally invasive spine surgery.
We are part of the Neuroscience Institute at Baptist Medical Center South, which encompasses several specialties pivotal to the diagnosis and treatment of neurologic disorders. These include Neurosurgery, Pain Management, Physical Medicine, Physical Therapy, and state of the art diagnostics with MRI and CT. This allows patients access to comprehensive care in one central location.
