Legacy Neurosurgery, formerly known as Arkansas Neurosurgery Brain & Spine Clinic, has a rich history, deeply rooted to the fathers of neurosurgery in Arkansas. Our practice name honors our former partners, Ray Jouett, MD, and Ronald Williams, MD, who blazed the trail for advanced neurosurgical care in this region. These pioneers of neurological surgery brought their expertise and knowledge to Arkansas and set the stnadard for specialized care of the brain, spine and peripheral nerves. The torch has since been passed to neurosurgeon Scott Schlesinger, MD, FACS, and our current medical team.
Today, we continue the legacy of those who came before us to educate, inspire and break new ground. Our mission at Legacy Neurosurgery is to make a lasting impact on the lives of our patients by delivering life-changing, minimally invasive neurosurgical care. As we look to our storied past, we are compelled to do our part in forging a better future for our field and, most importantly, our patients and their families. We are committed to advocating the most conservative apporach to patient care--always treating all our patients as if they were members of our family.
