Get to Know…AY’s Best of 2020: CHI St. Vincent
Winner, Neurosurgery and Best Surgeon
The CHI St. Vincent Arkansas Neuroscience Institute is a comprehensive program incorporating all aspects of neurosurgery and the spectrum of neurological disorders, including skull-base surgery, vascular neurosurgery, neuro-oncology, spine and spinal cord surgery, epilepsy surgery and surgery for movement disorders. Led by Dr. Ali Krisht, the Arkansas Neuroscience Institute Research and Education Center works to improve treatment outcomes for patients, map the human brain and provide training for neurosurgeons to develop the skills necessary to tackle the most complex cases.
The Arkansas Neuroscience Institute is more than a comprehensive program that addresses all aspects of neurosurgery and neurological disorders. It is an internationally recognized neurosurgery destination here in Central Arkansas where surgeons from around the world can learn how the world’s best neurosurgeons conduct procedures and address unexpected discoveries.
“Centers like the Arkansas Neuroscience Institute at CHI St. Vincent exist and will not give up on patients, even when others tell them their condition is non-operable or cannot be treated,” Krisht says. “We do not play the statistics game because we realize that each of those lives is invaluable to their families. Impossible does not exist. Each case is an opportunity to save someone’s life.”
