Top doctors, best doctors, your doctors: Mayfield physicians recognized for excellence

CINCINNATI – Neurosurgeons and specialists at Mayfield Brain & Spine continue to be recognized among the region's best.

Nearly all Mayfield physicians have been recognized by patients and their peers in the annual nominations and listings of Greater Cincinnati's most highly regarded doctors by local publications including Cincinnati Magazine, Cincy Magazine and Northern Kentucky Magazine.

"Mayfield offers the highest level of neurosurgical care to our patients through a combination of innovative clinical care, education & research," Mayfield chairman and neurosurgeon Dr. Andrew Ringer said. "Our patients know that their Mayfield physician will bring not only the benefits of the latest techniques and technology, but the compassionate care they deserve."

The selections reinforce Mayfield's standing as the region's premier neurosurgery practice. As an independent practice, Mayfield neurosurgeons help patients diagnose and treat health issues including brain tumors, brain aneurysms, stroke, Chiari malformation, spinal disease, scoliosis and complex spinal deformity. Their expertise ranges from minimally invasive procedures to open cranial and spinal procedures, and they operate in the region's leading hospitals to bring care closer to patients.

Mayfield's physical medicine & rehabilitation specialists help patients with acute or chronic back and neck pain, including non-invasive treatments such as physical therapy as well as minimally invasive interventions for pain, such as steroid injections and spinal cord stimulation trials.

In its Top Doctors edition, Cincinnati Magazine included two stories featuring the innovations Mayfield neurosurgeons are using to improve patient outcomes. The magazine focused on Dr. Vincent DiNapoli's groundbreaking work to bring the GammaTile targeted radiation therapy treatment to brain tumor patients in the Midwest. And a separate article features Dr. Michael Kachmann and Dr. Zachary Tempel as the first neurosurgeons in the country to operate on spine-surgery patients using the Pulse surgical platform, a "smartphone for the operating room" to improve efficiency and safety.

"Bringing significant innovations into the operating room can improve outcomes for our patients," Dr. Tempel said. "Mayfield surgeons have done this for decades, and we are dedicated to continuously enhancing the care we provide."
