Our Department of Neurosurgery is bolstered by some of the brightest minds in neuroscience — experts who dedicate their lives to discovering new breakthroughs that can change surgical care as we know it. Yet, there’s still so much to learn.
We’re exploring new advancements in neurosurgical care through our array of clinical trials. One area of research investigates the effects of non-invasive intracranial pressure monitoring, while the other delves into the potential of transcranial magnetic stimulation as a diagnostic tool for movement disorders, to name a few.
It’s here that we put our research answers into action. We strongly believe that trying to push the bounds of what we understand can lead to new treatments, like performing brain surgery with the smallest surgical tools or beams of concentrated radiation. In fact, Tufts Medicine is the first and only Gamma Knife Center in Massachusetts and northern New England.
