Expertise and advanced cranial surgery technology

The Cranial Surgery Center’s board-certified neurosurgeons have access to advanced imaging technology for care planning, and utilize state-of-the-art surgical technology to provide exceptional care, including:

  • Non-invasive techniques – Stereotactic radiosurgery uses focused beams of radiation, rather than traditional surgical instruments, to treat brain tumors without a surgical incision. It is called “surgery” because offers a similar result as actual surgery.
  • Minimally invasive options – Interventional radiology techniques — which use catheters with instruments or medications — such as angioplasty, stenting and embolization can be used to treat tumors, stroke and other cerebrovascular conditions. These options provide less pain and scarring, and a quicker recovery than traditional techniques.
  • Intraoperative monitoring – Highly sophisticated monitoring equipment allows surgeons to identify changes in brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerve function before irreversible damage occurs.

The Cranial Surgery Center combines medical expertise, advanced technology and state-of-the-art facilities to provide high-quality care.
