Norton Brownsboro Hospital is the first hospital in Kentucky to use the newest generation of robotic neurosurgery technology, called ROSA. ROSA’s main uses so far have been in biopsying brain tumors, and most recently in assisting in the first stereoelectroencephalography (SEEG) procedure. These procedures traditionally can take as long as 12 hours and involve a large incision through the skull.
With ROSA, brain tumor procedures can be performed in a much shorter time and with smaller incisions. This less invasive option may reduce the patient’s discomfort and the amount of time under anesthesia.
To find out if your patient is a candidate for ROSA, call (502) 629-HOPE.
