Changing the Frontier of Neurosurgery


The Department of Neurosurgery is part of the Neuropsychiatric Institute, a world leader in Neurosurgery established in the 1940’s. Our doctors have treated more than 4,000 brain aneurysms. The UIC Department of Neurosurgery ranks first in the state for treating the most aneurysm cases.

Neurosurgeons in our department have led the way in groundbreaking research in the areas of ischemic stroke, aneuryms, brain tumors, degenerative spinal disease and pain management. Currently, the Department of Neurosurgery is leading a nationwide study to evaluate blood flow and stroke risk.

The Department of Neurosurgery has internationally recognized experts in every subspecialty in the field.

CAVE2, Visualizing in 3D

Each year, when the National Science Foundation (NSF) sends its budget request to Congress, it includes about a dozen research "nuggets:" short descriptions of the very best NSF-funded research results across all the areas of science and engineering. This year CAVE2, a highly novel large-scale virtual environment developed by the UIC Computer Science Department's Electronic Visualization Laboratory, was one of those nuggets. In particular, the report highlights CAVE2's use by a team of UIC CoM neurosurgeons for 3-D brain modeling.
