Brain & Spine Center
Our Brain and Spine Center offers full spectrum evaluations, which include neuro-diagnostics, outpatient assessments, inpatient and outpatient electrodiagnostics, genetic evaluation and counseling and sub-specialty consultation and follow-up for each of these conditions. The Child First and Always will always guide our philosophy of care, but we'll continue to look for new technology, equipment and techniques to improve care for our patients and families.
Tests and Diagnostic Procedures
Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI)
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
Positron Emission Tomography (PET)
Single-photon Emission Computerized Tomography (SPECT)
TMS and ROSA Brain
In 2017, our program became the first in the West to begin using transmagentic stimulation (TMS) and ROSA Brain to provide even more exceptional care to our patients. TMS is a non-invasive outpatient procedure for epilepsy & tumor patients and provides greater accuracy, smaller incisions and reduced OR and MRI time. ROSA Brain also offers improved accuracy and decreased OR time for depth electrode placement, resulting in decreased injuries in endo and navigated procedures.
Together, these technologies use fewer resources, change how we surgically treat drug-resistant epilepsy, decreases patient risk, shortens hospital stays by up to five days and provides safer, lower cost (but higher value) surgical care.
