The Crouse Neuroscience Institute combines the most experienced and highly trained physicians and multidisciplinary specialists with the area’s most advanced technology — all to provide our community with the latest in treatment for issues of the brain and spine.

State-of-the-Art Hybrid Operating Rooms

Crouse’s two new hybrid operating rooms merge the latest imaging technology of a radiology suite with the amenities of a traditional operating room. The availability of imaging equipment means physicians can view a surgical area on high-definition monitors to perform advanced, image-guided vascular and neurosurgical procedures. Our state-of-the-art OR setting allows surgeons to safely transition from a minimally-invasive to an open procedure without moving the patient, allowing surgeons to respond more effectively to intricate cases.

Most Advanced Medical Imaging Devices

Crouse Hospital’s 320-slice Toshiba Aquilion ONE is one of the most advanced medical imaging devices available. This equipment  is the world’s first CT system capable of showing real-time organ function, such as blood flowing through the brain. With this technology, more of the patient’s body can be scanned in less time.

Cyberknife® Stereotactic Radiosurgery

Crouse Hospital, in partnership with Hematology-Oncology Associates of CNY, offers treatment with the CyberKnife®, made by Accuray, the only FDA-approved, completely robotic, stereotactic radiosurgery system available in the world that targets and destroys small and previously inaccessible tumors or lesions anywhere in the body. As a non-invasive operation, CyberKnife® has proven to be an effective alternative to surgery or conventional radiation for treating vascular abnormalities, tumors, functional disorders and cancers with sub-millimeter accuracy. Crouse neourosurgeon Gregory Canute, MD, provides treatment at HOA, the only provider of CyberKnife® services in Central New York.
