UPMC Susquehanna opens Neuroscience Center

WILLIAMSPORT – UPMC Susquehanna recently opened a new Neuroscience Center in Williamsport, expanding services and bringing advanced procedures to the region.

The Neuroscience Center brings together neurologists Donald Dworek, D.O., and Stuart Olinsky, M.D., and neurosurgeons Rodwan Rajjoub, M.D., Hani Tuffaha, M.D., and James Fick, M.D., as well as all of their staff, in one convenient location on the third floor of the Health Innovation Center, 740 High St.

“By offering neurology and neurosurgery together, in one location, we can provide a seamless experience for patients,” said Tom Hoy, executive director of Neuroscience and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at UPMC Susquehanna. “The offices are modern and patient-friendly with convenient parking, centralized waiting areas and easy access for patients to the pharmacy, laboratory services and imaging.”

Dr. Fick said Airo® Mobile Intraoperative CT and Curve Image Guided Surgery by BrainLab are imaging techniques in which, through advanced software, a 3D image displays treatment planning capabilities and helps neurosurgeons to safely and precisely perform brain surgery and improve outcomes.

“This highly advanced technology provides surgeons with visual tools that will aid them in planning and discussing highly individualized and complex treatments to their patients,” he said.
