Leading Team of Spine and Brain Surgeons

From Our President

For over forty years, the neurosurgeons of the Howell Allen Clinic have provided world-class spine and brain surgeons to the Nashville, Tennessee area. Over the decades we have established a reputation as a destination for patients suffering from complex disorders of the brain and spine. We have been on the leading edge of technological advances in neurosurgery, and are recognized as national leaders in minimally invasive laser brain surgery and robotic spine surgery. As the world changes around us and we embrace the advances in medicine, our commitment to our patients remains unchanged: that in every Howell Allen surgeon you will find a physician whose clinical excellence is matched by their compassion and dedication. We are proud stewards of this tradition, and honored by the faith that our patients and their families place in us.
