Biography

Adam Burdick, MD, treats patients with general neurological conditions of the brain and spine. As a neurosurgeon, he performs general cranial surgery for biopsies, tumors, hemorrhages, hydrocephalus and Chiari malformation, as well as stereotactic cranial surgery. His practice also includes spinal surgery for disc herniation, back pain, arm and leg pain, fractures, stenosis, pain syndromes, degenerative diseases, tumors, spinal cord stimulators and pain pumps.


Dr. Burdick has fellowship subspecialty training in Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS), which treats essential tremor, Parkinson’s disease, dystonia and Tourette’s syndrome. With an interest in clinical outcomes of DBS for movement and psychiatric disorders, he continues to evaluate and troubleshoot existing DBS systems and conduct research to advance this rapidly growing field.


Offering non-surgical conservative options, Dr. Burdick focuses treatment plans to serve the patient’s best interest, taking the whole patient picture into consideration when making decisions.
