The Department of Neurosurgery at Massachusetts General Hospital provides a complete range of surgical services for the diagnosis, surgical treatment and rehabilitation of neurologic disorders of the brain and spine.

The department performs over 4,300 procedures each year, often removing tumors that other hospitals consider inoperable.

On the research side, neurosurgery clinicians and scientists work closely to identify new strategies to improve the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of brain and spine disorders.

Beth Costine-Bartell, PhD, an assistant investigator in Neurosurgery at Mass General and an assistant professor of Neurosurgery at Harvard Medical School, is working to identify new treatments to help children with traumatic brain injuries.

It’s a quest that requires long hours and a lot of persistence. Learn more.
