Developing a More Accessible System for Minimally Invasive Brain Surgery

For patients suffering an intracerebral hemorrhage, a common form of stroke, timely access to minimally invasive surgery (MIS) results in improved outcomes. However, the complexity of current MIS technologies confines these systems to only the most specialized care centers. Drs. Savastano and Senol’s project focuses on the development of a new MIS system that is purpose-built to be used by any stroke interventionalist, thus greatly expanding access to timely care and leading to better outcomes for patients.
