The Minimally Invasive Neurosurgery Division (MIND) at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center is uniquely positioned to encompass many facets of the division under one umbrella with one common goal: to minimize the trauma of surgery, for the patient and the delicate tissues that are operated on.
Minimally invasive surgery focuses on reducing pain and blood loss, shortening recovery time and hospital stay and finding new techniques to reduce scarring during surgery. Cincinnati Children's is constantly seeking to explore new techniques for removing tumors, blood clots and other deep-seated lesions, often in combination with special computer guided navigation surgery called SMART (Stereotactic Minimal Access Resection Technique) surgery.

Your neurosurgeon will give you more information as to whether one of these alternative operations to more standard surgical approaches is appropriate for your child. As with everything we do, the safety of your child is our first concern. Many of these operations have been designed specifically to decrease the potential complications that are inherent to any operation.
