About Our Practice

At Southern California Institute of Neurological Surgery, established by Dr. Mark Stern, we are dedicated to the treatment of patients with spinal conditions and injuries requiring spinal surgery. Dr. Stern is a board-certified neurosurgeon. In addition to performing spinal surgery, he also specializes in cranial based or brain surgeries, surgical procedures involving the nervous system, and surgical procedures addressing the treatment of chronic pain management issues. Dr. Stern has practiced in and around the North County San Diego area for the past 19 years and works out of the two major medical facilities found here, those being Tri-City Medical Center and the Palomar Pomerado Health System. He is currently acting as Chief for the Department of Neurosurgery at both of these facilities. Above all, we are here to meet the needs of our patients. A favorite saying of Dr. Stern is “Listening closely and explaining all the aspects of treatment carefully are important to patient satisfaction”. Over the years we have found these words to be very true. Understanding that surgery, although a very routine experience to us, is a very unique experience for our patients. Spending the extra time to thoroughly answer all questions and educating our patients about the realities and expectations of surgery is what we pride ourselves on. In our practice, excellence is our only option. We are available by phone at the Institute’s office at 760-489-9490 and eagerly a wait to provide you with the excellent care you request and require.
