Neurosurgical Technology

Brain Lab

At Berkshire Medical Center, the neurosurgical team uses the BrainLab system. BrainLab's image guidance navigation system allows placement of surgical instruments and hardware in the brain and spine with pinpoint precision. It has essentially replaced conventional stereotactic systems and has a far greater range of applications than these systems ever did.

This remarkable technology enables the surgeon to reach his targets with better than 1 mm of accuracy, resulting in:

  • smaller incisions
  • less tissue dissection
  • less blood loss
