Image guided surgery (IGS) is one of several types of neuro-surgeries performed at St. Mary's.  IGS assists surgeons in performing less invasive surgeries through smaller incisions.  Because image guidance promotes less invasive surgery, patients in turn benefit through a smaller incision and a shorter, safer surgery.

Common surgeries performed are:

  • Minimally invasive brain surgery: this procedure uses state-of-the-art navigational systems to remove brain tumors.
  • Spine surgery: procedures utilize minimally invasive techniques to remove discs or to stabilize the spine by fusing the back.
  • Ventricular shunting: a procedure performed to drain excessive fluid.
  • Carpal tunnel repair

 St. Mary's also offers award-winning stroke care. In 2014, the Joint Commission Awarded St. Mary's Medical Center an Advanced Certification as a Primary Stroke Center.
