Phillip Porter, MD


Dr. Phillip Porter has provided consistent, high-quality neurosurgical care to the patients of the Chippewa Valley and surrounding area for almost two decades. He offers surgical and non-operative treatment for disorders of the brain, spine and peripheral nerves. Over the years he has developed a special interest in helping patients avoid surgery when it isn't necessary and undergo the minimal surgical procedure when it is. Dr. Porter helped establish the stroke treatment program at Sacred Heart Hospital and has given dozen of educational talks to various medical providers throughout Western Wisconsin.
