Clinical Sections

The Yale Department of Neurosurgery is a collaborative clinical service where exemplary patient care and rigorous basic research create a challenging academic environment as well as a world-class treatment and referral center for neurological diseases.

We work closely with Yale-New Haven Hospital and use its resources, including:

  • A dedicated neuro intensive care unit
  • Operating suites equipped with electrophysiology
  • Cortical/subcortical mapping and frameless stereotaxy
  • Endoscopic minimally invasive technology
  • Adult and pediatric epilepsy monitoring units

YNHH has one of the region’s most established stereotactic radiosurgery programs, including the latest Gamma Knife technology.

A 14-story Smilow Cancer Hospital is now under construction and will house all the specialties related to cancer care under one roof. Operating suites for neurosurgery in the new facility will contain intraoperative imaging with MRI as well as a neurovascular procedure OR with angiography. When the hospital opens in 2009, it will offer one-stop convenience for physicians as well as patients.

We also collaborate with Yale-New Haven Children's Hospital, which has emergency, surgical and pediatric ICU facilities, and provides medical care to veterans at the VA Connecticut Healthcare System in West Haven.
