Advanced Technologies

KNI offers patients the benefits of Gamma Knife radiosurgery. Gamma Knife is a revolutionary method of brain surgery that allows our specialists to operate on the brain without even breaking the skin. Gamma Knife is radiosurgery - a state-of-the-art, non-invasive procedure that uses highly focused gamma rays to safely treat tumors and abnormalities deep inside the brain without surgery. 

Additionally, we are the region's only Level IV Epilepsy Center. Our Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU) is a dedicated 6-bed unit with the latest diagnostic monitoring equipment to accurately diagnose the causes of epileptic seizures allowing the physicians to create a more accurate treatment plan. The Kentucky Neuroscience Institute also offers the latest advancements in minimally invasive surgery, such as kyphoplasty and other spine procedures, that allows patients to recover much faster.
