Neurosurgery is the medical specialty that deals with the prevention, diagnosis, surgical treatment, and rehabilitation of disorders affecting any portion of the nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, and extra-cranial cerebrovascular system. Neurosurgeons specialize in the diagnosis and surgical treatment of disorders of the central and peripheral nervous system, including congenital anomalies, vascular disorders, tumors, stroke, infections of the brain or spine, trauma, or degenerative diseases of the spine. They use neuroradiology imaging like MRI, CT, PET, and MEG to diagnose / treat neurological problems.

Dr. Meagher and his wife, Lisamarie, actively support their five children in schooling and extracurricular pursuits. His family members are sports enthusiasts who enjoy fitness and exercise on a regular basis.
