Approximately 3,500 operative neurosurgical procedures are performed each year at CMC (an additional 1,200 neurosurgical cases are performed at the adjacent Carolinas Center for Specialty Surgery). Cutting-edge clinical and surgical facilities include intraoperative imaging and newly built and recently opened neurocritical care units, inpatient neurosurgery ward, neurosurgery clinics and a pediatric surgery specialty ward.
