The practice remains the largest private neurosurgical practice in New Jersey treating stroke, with a success rate greater than the national average.
Morristown, NJ (PRWEB) July 30, 2014
Atlantic NeuroSurgical Specialists continues to be a leader in the war against stroke. In 2012, ANS became the first group of doctors in the country trained on the Trevo® Pro Retriever following approval by the FDA. This product is part of a new category of devices known as “stent-trievers.” Unlike prior devices, these stent-trievers allow ANS physicians to immediately restore blood flow to the patient’s brain by opening up the blockage instantaneously while it is removed from the artery. In fact, ANS was one of only a few sites to be chosen for the initial FDA trial for this technology.
"The practice remains the largest private neurosurgical practice in New Jersey treating stroke, with a success rate greater than the national average," states ANS director of marketing Tom Wood. ANS was the initial group to treat stroke at the first comprehensive stroke center in New Jersey, and has since expanded to 3 additional comprehensive centers. The endovascular team is engaged in clinical trials for new stroke technologies and therapies, giving patients access to the next generation of stroke management.
All of ANS’s neurosurgeons are board-certified and most notably, 5 of ANS’s neurosurgeons are fellowship-trained in spine surgery and hold national recognition in their specialty. In turn, ANS remains the largest and most reputable neurosurgical practice in New Jersey. They boast a multidisciplinary team using the most advanced surgical techniques, including minimally invasive spine surgery. These procedures, with the use of an endoscope, offer significantly less postoperative pain and shorter hospital stays. Conditions such as severe herniated discs and kyphosis, which warranted major surgery in the past, can now be treated with less risk and minimal down time.
With the rising popularity of “boutique surgeries” being offered by less qualified specialists, ANS has launched an awareness campaign to educate the community on the importance of choosing a neurosurgeon for an accurate diagnosis and to dismiss the idea that you only go to a neurosurgeon when surgery is needed. Neurosurgeons are the most qualified specialists to diagnose and treat your back pain as well as other ailments associated with your delicate nervous system.
As leaders in the surgery and management of patients suffering from brain disorders, tumors, and diseases, ANS performs treatments not found anywhere else in the state. They specialize in the rarest of surgeries, including skull base surgery and epilepsy surgery, and are also one of the few groups involved in vaccine trials for the treatment of brain tumors. Through collaboration, the ANS doctors routinely meet to discuss all treatment options for their patients.
