NorthShore on Your Team: Brain Injury Experts

At NorthShore Neurological Institute, we are leading the way on innovative, advanced techniques to prevent, diagnose and treat brain injury and brain tumors. The work we are doing with brain injuries, including concussion, extends far beyond the field or exam room.

 

World-Class Expertise

Through our research we are finding that a history of repetitive concussion is what puts people at the highest risk for long-term brain degeneration. In knowing this, our team – led by brain injury expert and renowned neurosurgeon Julian Bailes, MD, Surgical Director, NorthShore Neurological Institute; Chairman, Department of Neurosurgery—knows how critically important proper diagnosis and early detection are for prevention and overall well being.

 

Leading-edge Surgical Treatments

The pioneering work our team applies to brain injury can also be seen through the leading-edge surgical treatments we offer for brain tumors and other brain diseases. Through a highly integrated, multidisciplinary approach, our brain surgery experts are applying the latest minimally invasive technologies, including laser thermal ablation, intraoperative ultrasound, MRI-guided techniques amongst others, to each surgical case.

At NorthShore, our goal is to provide each of our patients with a customized care plan to ensure a successful outcome. When it comes to matters of the brain, we pride ourselves in offering expert care from diagnosis through treatment.
