Brain & Spine Center
Our neurosurgeons also provide round-the-clock emergency services as part of our trauma team. St. Mary's is designated as a Level II Trauma Center by the College of Surgeons, handling more complex emergency and trauma situations than any other hospital between Denver and Salt Lake City.
St. Mary's Center for Brain & Spine Surgery is taking new patients and welcomes referrals from physicians across western Colorado and eastern Utah.
Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery with O-arm®
St. Mary’s neurosurgeons have access to the O-arm Imaging System, advanced imaging technology that enables them to perform more spinal procedures using minimally invasive surgical techniques. Minimally invasive surgery is performed through tiny incisions and requires high-quality images of the surgical site. The O-arm system builds a three-dimensional image of the surgical site from numerous pictures it takes as it rotates around the patient. With O-arm technology, more St. Mary’s patients have less invasive surgeries, shorter recover times, and improved outcomes.
