The Penn Medicine Virtua Health Difference for Brain Surgery

Surgeon Expertise

The Penn Medicine Virtua Health partnership brings the region’s foremost leader in neurosurgical treatment and research to South Jersey.

The Penn Medicine team, together with the specialists at Virtua Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital, ensure you receive the most advanced therapies available, close to home.

High-Quality Care

Procedures are performed in the hospital’s hybrid operating room, where the team will use advanced bi-plane imaging technology to create a three-dimensional roadmap of the blood vessels within the brain.

Penn neurosurgeons are skilled in both conventional open surgery and endovascular techniques (accessing the central nervous system through small catheters). Our team also utilizes stereotactic neurosurgery, which allows it to treat small areas in the brain through a minimal opening.

Following treatment, you’ll receive specialized care in our dedicated critical care and recovery units. Recognized by the American Heart Association, the American Stroke Association, and the State of New Jersey, our award-winning approach relies on the teamwork of various experts—from specially trained doctors and nurses to physical therapists, dietitians, pharmacists, and social workers.


Continuing Your Care

When you’re ready to leave the hospital, this team also helps determine where you should go to receive the right level of care. You might be able to go home and receive outpatient services, or you might benefit from more intensive rehabilitation.


The Regional Rehabilitation Center at Virtua Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital is the only comprehensive rehabilitation facility in Southern New Jersey to be located within an acute care hospital. Patients enrolled in the programwill receive at least three hours of rehabilitation each day to improve strength, endurance and other skills. Patients also receive 24/7 medical care, including diagnostic testing, consultations by medical specialists, physical, occupational, and speech therapy, as needed.
