Our team is led by Penn Medicine neurosurgeons who work to provide you with convenient access to advanced neurologic care when you need it most. Our goal is to help you restore function, minimize pain, and improve your quality of life. We do this by applying the latest research, diagnostic techniques, and surgical approaches when developing your plan of care.

The Penn Medicine Virtua Health Difference for Brain Surgery

High Quality Care

Procedures take place in the hybrid operating lab at Virtua Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital, which provides our team the ability to perform both conventional open and microsurgical procedures. The lab features advanced bi-plane imaging technology that creates a three-dimensional roadmap of the blood vessels within your brain, and other state-of-the-art equipment that our neurosurgeons use to treat complex conditions such as brain tumors and spinal cord injuries.

Patients requiring around-the-clock inpatient care are managed by Penn Medicine’s neurohospitalists. These physicians assist Virtua’s critical care physicians by providing specialized neurologic care.

If your condition requires, you may be transferred to the Neurocritical Care Unit at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.

Following treatment, you may require intensive rehabilitation. The Virtua Acute Rehabilitation Center, located within Virtua Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital, provides 24/7, high-quality care for people with multiple medical conditions needing physical rehabilitation, including those recovering from stroke, spinal cord injury, and other neurologic conditions.
