Gordon Nakata, MD, FAANS, Neurological Surgeon

Gordon Nakata, MD, grew up in Stockton, CA, and went to medical school at the State University of New York in Brooklyn. He completed a residency at Brown University in Providence, RI. He is certified by the American Board of Neurological Surgery.

Dr. Nakata was drawn to neurological surgery while in high school because he loved the anatomy and the intricacies of the brain and nervous system. While studying biochemistry as an undergraduate at the University of California Berkeley, he was introduced to his mentor, neuroanatomist Dr. Marian Diamond, and decided he would become a neurological surgeon.

He has been practicing at Cape Cod Hospital for seven years and takes pride in keeping high-quality neurological surgery care local, so patients can be treated close to home.

At Cape Cod Hospital, the neurosurgeons at Neurosurgeons of Cape Cod have access to the best technology available, in terms of neuromonitoring, minimally invasive surgery, and very advanced imaging modalities. “We’re one of just three centers in the state that offers the O-Arm® Surgical Imaging System, which is an interoperative CT device that allows us to navigate around the spine in 3-D,” said Dr. Nakata. “That has really raised the level of what we do.”
