Geisinger recognized in top 100 spine and neurosurgery programs
Geisinger one of four health systems in Pa. to achieve recognition
Geisinger is among only four health systems in Pennsylvania to achieve recognition on the Becker’s list, which is based on nominations, national rankings and awards in neurosurgery, neurological care and spine surgery. Accomplishments in research and innovation are also considered.
“Our mission is to provide exceptional and affordable neurosurgical and spine care to the people of Pennsylvania and New Jersey by integrating the talents and skills of neurosurgeons, neurologists, and behavioral health specialists,” said Neil A. Martin, M.D., chair, Geisinger Neuroscience Institute. “Our integrated practice units in stroke, brain tumors, spinal disease, and pediatric neurosurgery combine clinical excellence with innovative care models, enhanced by personalized precision medicine and neurogenomics.”
The Geisinger Neuroscience Institute, operating across six hospitals in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, delivers patient-focused care for people with neurologic, neurosurgical and behavioral health and addiction disorders. Home to a regional ecosystem of stroke centers, with multiple hospitals designated as Comprehensive Stroke Centers, the Neuroscience Institute delivers innovative and effective care via ProvenCare and ProvenRecovery models for cranial and spinal conditions. Reliable delivery of appropriate value-based care, particularly in spinal disease, has led several large employers to trust Geisinger neurosurgery and orthopaedic surgery with their patients. State-of-the-art neurological care is supported by advanced technologies: hybrid operating rooms for endovascular and microsurgical treatment of stroke and aneurysms, laser interstitial thermal therapy for minimally invasive brain tumor treatment, and Cyberknife and Gamma Knife noninvasive precision-targeted radiation therapy for benign and malignant tumors.
Geisinger is committed to making better health easier for the more than 1 million people it serves. Founded more than 100 years ago by Abigail Geisinger, the system now includes 10 hospital campuses, a health plan with more than half a million members, a research institute and the Geisinger College of Health Sciences, which includes schools of medicine, nursing and graduate education. With more than 25,000 employees and 1,700+ employed physicians, Geisinger boosts its hometown economies in Pennsylvania by billions of dollars annually.
