Cutting-edge Neurovascular Center

In 2011, Methodist University Hospital unveiled its Neurovascular Center, featuring the Artis Zee biplane system and Artis Zeego angiography system by Siemens©. The only one of its kind in the Mid-South, this technology provides highly detailed images and three-dimensional views of a patient’s blood vessels leading to the brain during minimally invasive procedures to treat and reverse stroke.

After completion of the suite in January 2011, Siemens© chose the Methodist Neurovascular Center as a national show site for the Artis Zee and Artis Zeego systems. Physicians from around the world visit our facility to see how this technology is changing the face of intervention and treatment for strokes.

The Neurovascular Center also serves as an unparalleled training ground for the Residents and Fellows from the Neurology and Neurosurgery Programs at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center.
