Specialties: Cerebral Aneurysm Surgeries, Artificial disk replacement
Along with fellow NRN physician, Dr. Yves Meyer and Dr. Robert Replogle, Dr. Copeland is the only neurosurgeon at St. Vincent Healthcare in Billings, MT to perform cerebral aneurysm surgeries.
Dr. Copeland is perhaps best known and admired for his significant involvement in developing the Free-Electron Laser (FEL) for medical applications, commonly known as the "Scalpel of Light." This revolutionary instrument enables neurosurgeons to remove tumors with unmatched precision and speed while minimizing potential damage to surrounding tissue. Dr. Copeland is one of the pioneering physicians who jointly hold the patent on the ideal wavelength of this miraculous device, and he has co-written numerous publications and lectures on the technology.
