THE HENRY FORD NEUROSCIENCE INSTITUTE IS ONE OF THE NATION’S TOP CENTERS FOR NEUROLOGICAL DISEASES, with more than 650,000 patient visits over the past 16 years. We are home to some of the most advanced clinical trials, authors of national guidelines for treating metastatic brain tumors and one of the few to offer an adult high-field intraoperative MRI for the most complete brain tumor removal possible – increasing brain tumor removal to nearly 100 percent. It’s no wonder Henry Ford Hospital is innovating tomorrow’s health today in brain tumor, spine, stroke, epilepsy and movement disorders.
The only Michigan brain tumor center participating in the National Cancer Institute’s Adult Brain Tumor Consortium.
National leaders in research with over 630 clinical trials completed and 180 ongoing trials.
One of Michigan’s most experienced tumor boards, evaluating an average of 50 brain tumors per week.
The nation’s first and most experienced in providing radiosurgery for spine cancer to help control tumors.
First in Michigan to offer minimally invasive laser brain surgery for epilepsy and brain tumors.
The first in Michigan to perform microelectrode-guided deep brain stimulation (DBS) to treat patients with Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor, dystonia and obsessive-compulsive disorder. Our program was the first in Michigan and the third in the world to place DBS electrodes using intraoperative MRI (iMRI).
