MedStar Southern Maryland Hospital Center offers a wide range of neurosurgical services performed by board-certified neurosurgeon specialists. We offer some of the most advanced treatments and technologies currently available.
For example, image-guided neurosurgery has made operating on brain tumors much safer, more precise and more complete. Using the latest technology available, doctors can pick up light emissions from a digitized instrument, while a camera is placed above a patient's head. The camera communicates with a computer where images of the patient's MRI are stored. Image-guided surgery increases the chances that the surgeon will remove the entire tumor during the operation.
We offer new hope to patients who have been told their brain or spinal tumors are inoperable, and we are on the cutting edge of research in movement disorders, epilepsy and stroke treatment.
