About Barrow Neurological Institute (BNI)
Barrow Neurological Institute is the world’s largest neurological disease treatment and research institution, committed to exceptional patient care, leading-edge research, and superb educational programs. The interplay of research with everyday patient care is at the core of everything that we do.
Last year Barrow Neurological Institute treated 49,950 unique patients, performed 5,539 neurological surgeries (the highest volume in US), and had 8,334 admissions. The institute manages 306 clinical trials, 984 unique research studies, and has recently become a home to a $50 million Ivy Brain Tumor Center focused on phase 0/II clinical trials. The Radiation Oncology Department treats more than 1,000 new CNS patients each year. We use all forms of radiation including IMRT, SBRT, SRS, brachytherapy, and intra-operative radiation, and we are the first clinical site in the world to introduce the Zap-X radiosurgical device. Our physicians have the choice of Cyberknife, Gamma Knife, Zap-X, or linac-based treatment techniques to optimally manage patients with complex conditions. The department clinical and research activities are supported by 30 neurologists, 26 neurosurgeons, 15 neuropsychologists, 30 neuroscientists, and over 100 Certified Neuroscience Registered Nurses.
