Two stations allow for high-defintion endoscopic endonasal dissections and training. TIPCAM®1 S 3D, a 3-D endoscopic unit, allows visualization of endonasal and skull base anatomy in a high-definition, 3-D display.
The Neuroanatomy Laboratory is equipped with two Stryker Navigation systems, which aid surgeons in their ability to perform cadaveric dissections. With this technology, faculty and fellows have been able to simulate and practice placement of ventricular catheters, among other applications.
BrightMatter™ Drive's robotic arm includes a hands-free optical visualization system with an attached camera that automatically follows the physician's tools. Trainees in the Neuroanatomy Laboratory use the technology for dissections and production images for publications.
Our core commitment to minimally invasive surgical options for neurological disorders has made us one of the most advanced facilities of our kind.
Surgeons, doctors and researchers develop safer and more effective brain surgery procedures and treatments for neurological disorders.
