TMS

Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford offers Nexstim SmartFocus® nTMS brain mapping for patients diagnosed with tumors and epilepsy who are considering brain surgery. This non-invasive procedure helps us locate parts of your brain that are important for movement and language. This information can help your neurologist and neurosurgeon plan the safest surgery. It can also help your doctors in counseling you about potential surgical risks.

Surgical Theater

The simulator allows surgeons, patients, and parents to move around inside the patient’s virtual brain to help understand the patient’s condition and the surgical procedure.

 

ROSA™

Stanford Medicine Children's Health is the only hospital in Northern California to offer the ROSA™ robotic surgical assistant for pediatric neurosurgery, which reduces anesthesia time, increases precision and improves safety.

Synaptive Technology

We are the first pediatric hospital in the world to adopt Synaptive, a powerful new technology that helps brain surgeons conduct cranial surgery more quickly, safely and effectively.
