Leading-edge neurosurgical suites
Eight recently renovated surgical suites at IU Health Methodist Hospital are fully integrated and streamlined to perform complex neurosurgical procedures in a safe and efficient environment. The suites feature the most advanced surgical tools, imaging technologies and surgical navigation systems, as well as remote viewing capabilities.
Intraoperative MRI scanner (IMRIS)
As the first-of-its-kind in the state, the IMRIS enables doctors to see brain tumors more clearly during surgery so they can operate with a higher level of safety and accuracy.
Administered in affiliation with the IU Health Proton Therapy Center, proton therapy is a leading-edge alternative therapy for rare and complex cancers. It is an ultra-precise, noninvasive procedure, which minimizes damage to surrounding tissues. And side effects are generally nonexistent or minimal.
IU Health Neuroscience is the first adult hospital in the Midwest, and first children’s hospital in world, to offer this fully automated device that helps neurosurgeons remove hard-to-reach tumors in the brain and spine.
