Growing Arkansas Neuroscience Institute
Changing the Future of Neuroscience
Arkansas Neuroscience Institute is moving to our North campus so we can expand our services, treat more patients and provide more training to the next generation of neurosurgeons. Your donation directly impacts this effort and changes the field of neurosurgery.
Impacting Patient Outcomes & Training Tomorrow's Surgeons
Patients from around the globe already travel to Little Rock, Ark., for advanced neurosurgery care. Our team of five neurosurgeons, led by Dr. Ali Krisht, continually undertakes new research and technology to find the newest state-of-the-art treatments that bring the greatest quality of life back to our patients. Our patients’ three year survival rates for glioblastomas is 34% compared to the national average of 8.8%.
We are also building a state-of-the art Education and Research Center where our team will focus on improving treatment outcomes, mapping the human brain and training tomorrow's surgeons. Neurosurgeons from the Mayo Clinic, University of Illinois, Emory University, Creighton University and others from around the world travel here throughout the year for hands-on training. And, a new generation of neurosurgeons will be able to learn the skills necessary to tackle the most complex cases to further impact patient outcomes.
Progress is being made on the new Education and Research Center. Here the Arkansas Neuroscience Institute will focus on improving treatment outcomes and uncovering ground breaking advancements in the field of neuroscience.
