Leadership in Advanced Treatment Options
The neurosurgery team at Mercy was the first in Baltimore to implant the leading edge Prestige Artificial Cervical Disc as part of one of the largest cervical spine investigational studies to be conducted. The Prestige Artificial Cervical Disc provides patients with degenerative disc disease a far superior treatment option to the traditional, motion-limiting spinal fusion option.
Innovative Technology for Neurosurgical Procedures
Mercy’s neurosurgeons perform minimally invasive surgical techniques that provide patients with less pain and a shorter recovery time. Our neurosurgeons use innovative computer technology and an advanced image-guided surgery system to assist in the removal of tumors, lesions, aneurysms and other abnormalities of the brain and spine. The system, known as the SMN (Surgical Microscope Navigator), guides the surgeon to the lesion in much the same way as a pilot using computer navigation to land a jet aircraft. It is a computer driven microscope that shows the exact location and size of the lesion on a monitor, providing greater precision during surgery.
Award Winning Neurosurgery Care
Mercy Medical Center is proud to have been named a Best National Hospital in Neurology & Neurosurgery by U.S. News & World Report.
