See how Novant Health got Jocelyn Harris back to serving her country

Jocelyn Harris didn’t know she had a cyst growing in her brain. It was her neurological surgeon at Novant Health who helped her understand the cause of her debilitating headaches. It was the same surgeon who removed the cyst three days later and got Jocelyn back to doing what she loves.

Back and spinal pain relief

Back and spinal pain are among the most frequent neurological conditions we treat. Your neurological care team will identify and address the source of your pain and design a personalized care plan. In some cases, it may directly result from damage to the nervous system that causes the nerves to emit pain signals. It might also indicate an underlying problem like a herniated disc or degenerative spinal condition.
