Brain Surgery

While brain surgery can be a scary thing, it’s more comfortable to have the procedure done close to home. Doctor Don Soloniuk, M.D. is one of Lewiston’s only Neurosurgeons. He performs all of his surgeries at St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center as a convenience to his patients.

Brain surgery can treat many conditions, such as:

  • Brain tumors
  • Bleeding or blood clots from injuries
  • Weaknesses in blood vessels in the brain
  • Abnormal blood vessels in the brain
  • Damage to tissues covering the brain
  • Infections in the brain
  • Severe nerve or facial pain
  • Skull fractures
  • Pressure in the brain after an injury or stroke
  • Some forms of seizure disorders
  • Certain brain diseases that may be helped with an implanted electronic device
