Subcortical Surgery Group Formed to Advance New Approaches in Brain Surgery

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.
