Certified Primary Stroke Center
MountainView is part of the Sunrise Health System network, the first network of Certified Stroke Centers in Southern Nevada. Our team of doctors and nurses works to recognize stroke symptoms in patients immediately. We take pride in ensuring our stroke center has medical professionals well-equipped to assist you every step of the way in treating stroke.
Additionally, we offer a stroke support group as a community resource to our patients. The group consists of stroke survivors and caregivers who share their insight on life after a stroke.
MountainView Hospital's neurosurgeons perform craniotomies, a type of brain surgery used to remove a brain tumor or blood clot, control hemorrhaging or relieve pressure inside the skull. There are four types of craniotomies distinguished based on how the surgery is performed:
- Burr hole or keyhole—A dime-sized hole is created in the skull.
- Awake—The patient is awakened from anesthesia after the skull is opened.
- Stereotactic—The surgeon uses computer navigation to take images of the brain. Those images help guide the surgeon through the burr or keyholes previously made in the skull.
- Endoscopic—An illuminated camera scope is entered through the burr or keyhole into the brain.
Robotic-assisted brain surgery
Our board-certified surgeons also perform robotic-assisted surgery for various procedures, including brain surgery, allowing for highly detailed imaging and navigation. The technology is used to operate on brain tumors, aneurysms, vascular lesions and skull-based issues.
This robotic ability allows surgeons to perform less invasive procedures with more precision. For patients, less invasive procedures may lead to reduced complications and faster recovery times.
The surgeon can view patient anatomy in 3-D, making it possible to perform complex procedures on unreachable areas or tumors of the brain with less invasive approaches and more precision. The technology also automatically maps and highlights all tracts before and during surgery for optimal surgical planning.
