Superior Surgical Outcomes & TechniquesWhen surgery is needed, high-precision surgical planning technology enables our neurosurgeons to perform complex brain operations without destroying vital brain functions. Our neurosurgeons are pioneers in minimally invasive surgery, and offer this approach for the diagnosis and treatment of many conditions, from neck and spine problems to hydrocephalus and brain tumors.
Our surgical outcomes are among the best in the nation, with a recent University HealthSystem Consortium report ranking our neurosurgery program's risk-adjusted mortality rate the best in the region and second out of 105 academic medical centers in the United States.
