Gordon Tang, MD

I am a board certified, fellowship-trained neurosurgeon trusted with nearly 8000 surgeries over the past 20 years in the East Bay. The medical community has voted me a "Top Doctor" for over 12 consecutive years. As a sign of trust by the medical community, I have operated on over a hundred doctors, nurses, hospital employees and their immediate family.

Using Medicare data, the non-profit consumer agency, Consumer's Checkbook, lists my practice as providing among the best outcomes for spine surgery in the Bay Area.

My practice is a personalized one focused on spinal care, benign brain tumors and hydrocephalus. Instead of nurse practitioners, physician assistants or trainees, I personally perform the initial history. With a craft mindset rather than a factory mentality, I personally perform every aspect of the surgery and oversee your recovery. To reduce risk, my philosophy tends toward the smallest possible procedure. As such, more than a third of my elective cases do not require a hospital stay.

I have operated alongside the same surgical team for over a decade at Alta Bates Hospital where I also serve as the Chairman of the Department of Surgery.

We offer telemedicine appointments. Please call to arrange.
