Welcome to MD News Central Pennsylvania. Neurosurgeons at Penn State Health now have access to the Mazor X Stealth Edition by Medtronic, a robotic guidance system that bolsters presurgical planning for both open and minimally invasive spine procedures. We spoke with Michael Sather, MD, FA ANS, director of Epilepsy Surgery at Penn State Health Neurosurgery and associate professor of Neurosurgery at Penn State College of Medicine, and Tim Reiter, MD, director of Spinal Surgery at Penn State Health Neurosurgery, associate director of the Penn State Health Spine Center and associate professor of Neurosurgery at Penn State College of Medicine. Read more in our cover feature about how this advanced technology improves patient outcomes. Another feature highlights the research efforts under- way in the Department of Neurosurgery at Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center. Through its efforts, the department continues to advance in studies of brain, nerve and spine conditions with more than 60 registries in clinical trials for a range of disorders. In addition, we discuss Penn State Health's multi- disciplinary approach to treating even the most rare cerebrovascular and endovascular conditions. Ephraim W. Church, MD, assistant professor of Neurosurgery, Radiology and Neurology and director of the Cerebral Revascularization Program at Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, sheds light on surgical techniques and technology for complex cases. Our clinical section on neurological health examines the work of a research team that hopes to impact the treatment of spinal cord injuries by mapping an open access, 3D atlas of the spinal cord. A separate article explores a possible connection between post-traumatic stress disorder and stroke in young adults. You can leverage MD News' multiple platforms to share information about your organization's capabilities and advanced technologies with referring physicians.
