An anti-cancer compound developed at USA Health Mitchell Cancer Institute is showing promise in pre-clinical studies – one involving pancreatic cancer and the other involving breast cancer. The compound, MCI-715, was developed by Gary Piazza, Ph.D., and his lab team at the Drug Discovery Research Center at MCI.
About Neurosurgery Specialists
At USA Health, our neurosurgeons bring advanced surgical care to both children and adults with neurological issues. We treat such conditions as hemorrhagic strokes, epilepsy, aneurysms, brain tumors, spinal tumors, Parkinson’s disease, tremors, hydrocephalus, and other congenital brain and spine malformations.
Our surgeons, who are board certified and fellowship trained, also teach and train other doctors. On the leading edge of neurological medicine, we use conventional surgical techniques proven to produce successful outcomes, as well as novel approaches and state-of-the-art technology.
The CyberKnife®, an extraordinarily precise robotic radiation delivery system, is a noninvasive procedure used to treat tumors, malformations and severe facial pain. Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is another breakthrough that provides relief to people with Parkinson’s disease.
People of all ages living with neurological disorders are experiencing positive outcomes due to the advances that USA Health neurosurgeons offer.
The Neurosurgery Specialists clinic hours of operation is Monday–Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
