Neurosurgery is the specialized field of surgery that treats diseases that affect the brain, spine and peripheral nerves. The field of neurosurgery is one of the most sophisticated surgical specialties, and it encompasses advanced surgical and imaging technology and new research in molecular neurosurgery and gene therapy.
At Good Shepherd, neurosurgeons are using new and advanced technology in the operating room. Good Shepherd introduced the Curve Surgical-Navigation System in 2012 as the ultimate command and control center for information-guided surgery. Surgeons optimize navigation with pre-op planning and surgical visualization. The equipment is accessible at the touch of a sterile touch pen or the surgeon’s hands. The latest image guidance software powers advanced 3D displays and creates a navigation of the surgery site. This equipment is prominently used for spine, brain and ear, nose, throat procedures.
