Dr. Gordon Tang, MD
Welcome to My Practice
I am a board certified, fellowship-trained neurosurgeon trusted with more than 6000 surgeries over the past 15 years in the East Bay. The medical community has voted me a "Top Doctor" every year since 2009. Using Medicare data, the independent non-profit consumer agency, Consumer's Checkbook, lists my practice as providing among the best outcomes for spine surgery in the Bay Area. Surgeonratings.org
My practice is a personalized one focused on spinal care, benign brain tumors and hydrocephalus. Instead of nurse practitioners or trainees, I personally perform the initial history. With a craft mindset rather than a factory mentality, I perform every aspect of the surgery, never participating in concurrent surgeries. 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.
