About Khalid H. Kurtom, MD, FACS

Toggle accordion item

Khalid Kurtom, MD, FAANS, FACS, specializes in the performance of minimally invasive surgery to treat primary and metastatic brain, spinal cord and pituitary tumors; cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine conditions; peripheral nerve disease; hydrocephalus; and head injuries.

Dr. Kurtom’s goal is to provide a plan of care geared to each patient's medical needs. He works to relieve symptoms through a nonsurgical approach. This involves referring patients to providers that specialize in pain management or to a physiatrist to manage the patient's condition, whether it is through physical therapy, injections, medications or other nonsurgical methods. Only when the nonsurgical approach is no longer effective does Dr. Kurtom discuss using the most minimally invasive surgical approach with patients. 

Patients throughout the Delmarva area and across the country come to Dr. Kurtom for this minimally invasive approach to neurological surgery. Minimally invasive surgery helps patients return to their activities and resume work within a few days or a weeks. His dedicated neurosurgery team continually seeks to improve patient satisfaction and to maintain high quality outcomes.

The neurosurgery team extends their outreach overseas through their mission work for Syrian refugees in Jordan and the indigent people of Honduras. The team's philosophy includes providing exceptional specialized care to our community and those with greatest need.
