Neurosurgery practice joins Vidant Medical Group | Eastern North Carolina Now

News Release:

    GREENVILLE, NC     Effective Oct. 1, ECU Physicians and Vidant Health successfully partnered to transition neurosurgery services to become part of Vidant Medical Group.

    Neurosurgery is an integral part of the Level 1 Trauma Center which East Carolina University and Vidant partnered to establish in the mid-1980s in order to meet the region's trauma needs.

    "We are thrilled to have this group transition to Vidant Medical Group and look forward to continuing the efforts towards enhancing comprehensive neurosurgery services in eastern North Carolina," said Anthony Bartholomew, vice president of operations, Vidant Medical Group. "It is our goal to enhance the practice infrastructure and resources required to improve operations and provide quality care to our patients, from complex spine surgery to high-risk brain tumors."

    Last year, Vidant Medical Center installed the new Perfexion stereotactic radiosurgery system at its Gamma Knife® Center as an example of its commitment to tertiary comprehensive neurosurgery in eastern North Carolina. This is the only facility in the region, and one of just two in the entire state, offering this non-invasive treatment of brain disorders, such as metastatic brain tumors, meningiomas, trigeminal neuralgia and vascular malformations.

    "The members of the neurosurgery group look forward to providing the same high quality care to our patients that we provided at ECU Physicians. Our goal is that this transition will be seamless for our patients and our referring physicians. We also plan to recruit additional neurosurgeons to the region in order to expand the scope of our neurosurgical services." said Dr. Stuart Lee.

    The neurosurgery practice in Greenville consists of six physicians and approximately 25 staff in Greenville, with an additional two doctors and five staff operating a satellite office in Goldsboro. The practice treats patients with brain and spine tumors, pituitary tumors, spinal disorders such as cervical and lumbar disc and degenerative disease, cerebrovascular disorders such as aneurysms and vascular malformations of the brain as well as patients with injuries of the brain and spine.

    Neurosurgery patients should see no change in services provided.

    The Greenville practice is located at 2325 Stantonsburg Road, with office hours from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

    The Goldsboro practice is located at 625 Country Day Road, with office hours 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

    Vidant Medical Group is a multispecialty physician and provider group that is part of Vidant Health. Vidant Health is a network of interconnected physician practices, more than 12,000 employees, eight hospitals, home health and hospice programs and wellness facilities.
