Naples Neuro Care


Edison Valle Giler, M.D.

Dr. Valle treats neurosurgical disorders of the brain and spine, and he is one of the few dual trained endovascular and open vascular neurosurgeons in the country (can treat neurovascular problems with both, catheter based and open conventional surgery). His philosophy is to treat his patients as if they were a member of his own family. When possible, Dr. Valle prefers to treat patients with minimally invasive surgical techniques in order to reduce recovery time and get them back to enjoying their life.

Dr. Valle uses cutting edge / state-of-the-art treatments for brain aneurysms, stroke, tumors (minimally invasive craniotomy, tractography guidance and radiosurgery), degenerative spine disease (minimally invasive surgery and deformity correction), pain modulation (spinal cord stimulation), and peripheral nerve pathology (carpal tunnel, cubital tunnel, peripheral nerve tumors).

Before coming to Naples, Dr. Valle was an assistant professor at the Tulane University and Ochsner Clinic program in New Orleans, where he taught residents in neurosurgery. (See Dr. Valle’s lists of publications or another lists.).

Dr. Valle enjoys playing tennis, soccer and along with his wife they are very involved in children sports coaching.

May is Brain Tumor Awareness Month.

Your Healthy Family: Naples woman shares experience with a brain tumor

May is Brain Tumor Awareness Month. A Neurosurgeon with NCH Healthcare System shared the signs of a brain tumor, and showed us how new technology helps them treat brain tumor patients.

A neurosurgeon at NCH was recently able to relieve a man of the sciatica pain he suffered in his back for 50 years.

NCH neurosurgeon helps man who suffered from back pain

Back pain is one of the most common reasons people visit a doctor. With older people, it’s often brought on by a condition called spinal stenosis, which is a narrowing of the spinal canal.

New Orleans mobile app developer could help doctors utilize virtual reality for surgery consultations

Conventional wisdom holds that technology makes medical care less human, less personal.

But watching patient Wanda Touard with virtual reality goggles on her head and controllers in her hands, exploring the inside of her brain for the first time, gives one the distinct impression that nothing could be more personal than this high-tech tool.
