Goodman Campbell Brain and Spine advances research with Ascension St. Vincent
In 2022, clinicians at Goodman Campbell Brain and Spine, a leading neurological practice associated with Ascension St. Vincent in Indiana, were co-authors of 40 scholarly articles as part of the practice’s commitment to advance the care they provide to adults and children with neurosurgical disorders
Those efforts are supported by the Neurosurgery Foundation at Goodman Campbell, which has built a strong research collaboration with Ascension St. Vincent. This collaboration provides clinical research opportunities within the acute care setting and beyond.
Recent studies by Goodman Campbell Brain and Spine include research in the areas of neurotrauma, spinal surgery, stroke and pain, as well as multisystem trauma with traumatic brain injury and therapeutic applications for clinical treatment of epilepsy patients.
