Leaders of the Virtua Brain and Spine Institute gathered recently for a ribbon-cutting ceremony at Virtua Memorial Hospital in Mount Holly, N.J.

The Institute joins Virtua orthopedic surgeons and Penn Medicine neurosurgeons, who work together to determine the best possible solution for each patient. These fellowship-trained surgeons also collaborate on research to ensure ongoing improvements in care.

The Virtua Brain and Spine Institute provides advanced care for such conditions as trauma, degenerative disc disease, arthritis, scoliosis, fractures, pinched nerves, spinal tumors, osteoporosis, and work-related injuries. The surgeries, which are tailored to the patient, can include minimally invasive options. All rooms are private for a more comfortable recovery.

“With top-notch surgeons and state-of-the-art technology, the Institute will set the new standard of what spine care means in South Jersey,” said James Sanfilippo, MD, Orthopedic Surgeon and Chair of the Virtua Brain and Spine Institute.

Virtua’s alliance with Penn Medicine supports and strengthens Virtua’s delivery of care in the areas of cancer and neuroscience. Patients with cancer have easier access to complex and high acuity care including bone marrow transplants, advanced hematology and surgery, and second- opinion services. Patients with brain, spine, and nervous system disorders have access to Penn Medicine clinical trials and the most advanced neurosurgical care, right here in South Jersey.
