Providence Brain and Spine Institute is a comprehensive clinical program that treats all conditions of the brain, spine and nervous system. Our recognized specialists work together as a team to provide patients with advanced medical expertise and compassionate care.
Our specialists use the latest diagnostics, treatments and surgical procedures and have access to world-class technologies, including:
- The world’s most advanced intraoperative MRI lets surgeons take high-resolution scans of the brain during surgery without moving the patient, allowing greater precision during surgery.
- Gamma Knife Perfexion is the most advanced Gamma Knife technology in the Northwest. It can destroy a tumor nonsurgically with pinpoint accuracy.
- Endovascular biplane laboratory, designed just for Providence, allows neurointerventional specialists to perform complex, detailed minimally invasive treatment of stroke and aneurysm.
- Minimally invasive techniques that are easier on the patient and promote speedier recovery.
- Endoscopic neurosurgery: Providence surgeons are improving care through endoscopic neurosurgery, an advanced procedure that uses a slender fiber-optic camera to improve visibility and guide access to hard-to-reach tumors in the brain.
- Providence Telestroke Network, which provides 19 hospitals in Oregon and Washington access to top stroke specialists 24 hours a day.
