CINN treats a wide range of neuro-related pain disorders, from common back and neck pain, to facial pain, to various types of headaches. Non-surgical solutions for these conditions are managed through the physiatry and neurology teams at CINN. These practitioners have specialized expertise in utilizing an array of therapies, medications and other non-surgical means to control tangoporno pain. Unfortunately, in some circumstances these non-invasive or minimally invasive therapies are not effective and surgical options, including Gamma Knife stereotactic radiosurgery, should be explored. At that point patients are referred to a highly trained, subspecialized, CINN neurosurgeon who might be able to provide a surgical solution.

The following section of the CINN website provides an overview of back and neck pain, facial pain and headaches, along with the various treatment options available through CINN. If you have further questions regarding our services, or would like to schedule an appointment with a CINN physician, please call 1-800-446-1234.

Neck pain
Neck pain accounts for almost 1% of all visits to a primary care physician in the United States and may result from abnormalities in the soft tissues – the muscles, ligaments, and nerves – as well as in bones and joints of the spine.
Low Back pain
Ninety percent of lower back pain (LBP) cases are benign and typically subside within six weeks regardless of treatment method. The diagnosis and treatment of the remaining 10 percent are more challenging, however, and demand strict adherence—both from the physician and the patient—to the latest clinical rubias19 guidelines and recommendations. Based on current literature, a multidisciplinary approach combining drug treatment with physical and patient education has proven to be the most successful treatment of back pain.

CINN Qualifications
To download an informational flyer on the CINN Brain Tumor Program.
The Chicago Institute of Neurosurgery and Neuroresearch Medical Group (CINN) is one of the nation’s leading organizations for the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of people with brain and spine disorders. Originally founded in 1987, CINN is one of the Midwest’s largest teams of neurosurgeons known for their pioneering treatments in minimally invasive techniques.

President and medical director of CINN, Dr. Leonard J. Cerullo, founded CINN in 1987 in order to develop an environment that offered the neurosurgical patient something different, something unique, something better. He felt that patients whose conditions required super-specialized care needed a special kind of attention – a focus not only on the medical conditions, but also on the emotional needs during this difficult time in their lives.

Today CINN is comprised of neurosurgeons, physiatrists, and neurologists complemented by 2 clinical psychologists, working together to provide an interdisciplinary approach to patient care of the highest caliber. Over the past twelve months, CINN physicians have evaluated nearly 10,000 new patients and performed approximately 4,000 surgeries at six hospitals throughout Chicagoland. CINN treats more patients with brain tumors and spine disorders than any other physician group in Illinois.

The CINN Treatment Plan

The CINN Treatment Plan

Welcome to the website for the Chicago Institute of Neurosurgery pornochacha and Neuroresearch (CINN) Neurovascular and Stroke Intervention Program. We hope that the information presented on this website will provide you valuable information in better understanding the uniqueness of our team and the services we offer.

CINN’s Neurovascular xnxx and Stroke Intervention Program offers innovative approaches to the treatment of cerebrovascular disorders either by navigating the body’s blood vessels with a catheter; through open surgical techniques; with the use of stereotactic radiosurgery, or a combination thereof. Since CINN has significant expertise in both surgical and endovascular procedures, patients seeking care at CINN can be assured they will receive the most appropriate treatment given their specific facts and circumstances.

The CINN Neurovascular and Stroke Intervention Program specializes in the treatment of patients suffering from vascular diseases such as, aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations (AVM), carotid cavernous fistula, carotid stenosis, cerebrovascular ischemia (stroke), and vasospasm. Our program brings together the expertise of the most experienced fellowship-trained endovascular neurosurgeon in Chicago with new technology, including:
new stents designed xvideos specifically for the brain
coils that are coated with biologically active material designed to create scar and connective tissue within the aneurysm to enhance the healing process
carotid stenting with distal protection devices
hydrocoils that allow increased packing of cerebral aneurysms
clot retrieval devices for the management of acute strokes
Software that allows for the visualization and quantification of blood flow in the head and neck completely non-invasively

Combining breakthrough care with efficient case management and resolution
Work injuries and worker’s compensation cases present a unique set of challenges…not just for employees, employers and insurance providers, but for healthcare professionals as well. At CINN, we combine renowned medical knowledge and skills with exceptional case management expertise to bring work injury cases to their swiftest, most positive and most practical resolutions.

World-class work injury care
CINN is home to one of the largest neurological and spine-related work injury programs in the greater Chicago area, and our proven protocols encompass the entire recovery process. Our treatment plan begins with the gathering and documentation of objective findings and analysis of subjective information, leading to the pinpointing of a clearly defined, work-related cause. The core of the program is our team of highly experienced neurological specialists in physiatry, neurology and neurosurgery.

Closely coordinated case management
At CINN we understand the objectives of the case manager. To this end, our protocols are based on providing the most appropriate care and the most efficient allocation of resources. Our focus is on rapid case resolution, and our methodology calls for timely and complete communication with our case manager partners. To further enhance case coordination, we provide a network of resources that is comprehensive and easily navigable. Our physicians meet weekly in conference to review complex spine cases.

“ It’s hard to find quality neuro care in smaller communities. Since CINN has brought its expertise to our area, now leading-edge neuro care is available to our patients who’ve been injured on their job.”

Disability Management Networks
Integrated one-stop resource
In most cases, treatment begins with triage from experienced physiatrists. Following triage, we offer world-class medical care in all appropriate disciplines and protocols, including acute and chronic care, surgery with an emphasis on minimally invasive procedures, and a conservative approach that proposes non-surgical solutions whenever possible. We provide expertise in injection therapy, endoscopic spine surgery, intradiscal thermal catheter therapy and vertebroplasty. We were one of the first groups in the state to perform disc replacement surgery with an artificial disc. For long-term pain control, implantable spine devices, such as morphine pumps and dorsal column stimulators, are available through our team of physicians.

CINN also provides complete rehabilitation services with experienced specialists in work conditioning, functional capacity evaluation, and occupational and physical therapy.

Easy, convenient access
The extensive CINN network offers convenient access from anywhere in the Chicago area, plus fully integrated system-wide treatment options and coordinated problem solving. Many work injury patients come to the network through referral to a CINN doctor. For non-referral cases, our case manager dedicated toll free number is designed to provide fast initial access to the CINN system.
