Our neurosurgeons are utilizing the latest in minimally invasive brain surgery technology to target previously inoperable brain tumors, resect aneurysms and minimize seizures. Endeavor Health Neurosciences Institute is a global treatment destination for advanced brain tumor treatments such as minimally invasive trans-sulcal port brain surgery, conscious/awake brain surgery, and expanded endonasal skull base surgery. Learn more about our programs at Edward and Elmhurst Hospitals, Evanston Hospital, or Northwest Community Hospital.
