FirstHealth Neurosurgery


UNC Neurosurgeons in Pinehurst evaluate patients within the emergency room facilities at FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital and assess spine and intracranial injury.  Within the outstanding facilities at FirstHealth, many of these patients can be treated on-site, but those with more severe injuries and requiring a Level 1 Trauma Center for treatment of their neurologic disease can be quickly transferred by either air or ground to the Level 1 Trauma Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  A partnership with the neurosurgeons in Pinehurst allows us to get an immediate on-site evaluation and to keep trauma care close to the patient’s home when appropriate, and also allows access to tertiary care emergency medicine and trauma care when needed.
