We are committed to providing quality care and an individualized approach to the treatment of neurological disorders. When neurosurgery is required, our neurosurgeons use the advanced technologies for brain surgery.
Our neurosurgeons perform procedures to treat brain trauma, brain tumors, normal pressure hydrocephalus, stroke and other conditions.
We provide a wide range of vascular care services. Some of our vascular procedures include endovascular treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA), carotid artery stenting and other treatments for vascular disease.
Our highly trained surgeons perform an array of robotic procedures. These minimally invasive procedures use the assistance of robotic technology, which is controlled 100 percent by our surgeons.
Robotic surgery has many benefits for both the surgeon and the patient. The robotic technology allows surgeons to access hard-to-each areas within the body with precision and a few tiny incisions. For patients, this means shorter recovery times, less scarring and less pain.
