Patients around the country have to travel long distances to reach institutions with high levels of expertise in treating complex brain disorders. The AIN empowers patients by bringing such unique expertise into their communities.
ST. LOUIS (PRWEB) September 15, 2020
Professor Saleem Abdulrauf, MD, has assembled a network of neurosurgeons to improve the outcomes of patients. The AIN is giving patients more options than ever by providing them access to super-specialized neurosurgeons in the United States.
Doctors of the AIN have extensive experience and are providing second-opinion consultation services for brain tumors and aneurysms.
Dr. Abdulrauf said, “Patients around the country have to travel long distances to reach institutions with high levels of expertise in treating complex brain disorders. The AIN empowers patients by bringing such unique expertise into their communities.” Abdulrauf aims to achieve this by providing his and his colleagues’ expertise directly to hospitals.
He added, “Given the complex nature of treating brain tumors and aneurysms, there is a risk of lengthy hospital stays following surgery, risk of having morbidity (having a stroke) following surgery, and the risk of death following surgery. In addition to the personal toll on the patients and their families, one additional day for a single patient in the intensive care unit following surgery can cost the hospital thousands of dollars.” The AIN provides hospitals an opportunity for partnership to improve patient outcomes by decreasing length of stays, morbidity, and mortality.
The AIN is currently accepting requests for second-opinion consultations as well as joint ventures with hospitals and health-care systems. For more information patients, hospitals, and systems, you can visit the Abdulrauf Institute of Neurosurgery™ website at http://www.abdulraufinstitute.org.
