Subcortical Surgery Group Formed to Advance New Approaches in Brain Surgery
Date:8/15/2014

Richard Rovin, FACS, MD, Medical Director of the Upper Michigan Brain Tumor Center, Marquette General Hospital; and Ronald Young, MD, Chief of Pediatric Neurosurgery, St. Vincent Hospital, Indianapolis.

Day, Professor and Chair of the Department of Neurosurgery at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences and member of the Subcortical Surgery Group. "It's exciting to be on the forefront, but we can't do it without new and emerging technology."

The group's mission is to optimize minimally invasive surgical corridors to the brain's subcortical or deeper spaces through clinical and scientific collaborative research that will help set the standards for safe and effective treatment of brain tumors and hemorrhagic stroke.

Dr. Bailes describes the role of a neurosurgeon today as similar to a pilot in the cockpit with two screens and all the information at his fingertips.

"With next generation visualization, we know where the brain's critical structure fibers are located as we never knew before.
