"New Facilities and State-of-the-Art Technology"
• In 2015 Cayuga Medical Center completed a multi-year expansion
and renovation to advance surgical care offered at the medical center.
Our skilled neurosurgeons are now utilizing state-of-the–art operating
rooms, expanding the excellent surgical care our patients can find
close to home.
• The Cayuga Epilepsy Center opened in June 2016 under the
supervision of epileptologist Dr. Deana Bonno. The new service
provides comprehensive inpatient diagnostic monitoring for the
treatment of adults and children over three years old who have
epileptic seizures that have proven difficult to diagnose and treat. This
unit is the only one of its kind in the Southern Tier.
• Our newly renovated Neurodiagnostics Clinic comprises three testing
rooms and is located on the medical center's third floor, offering a
view of Cayuga Lake. The clinic provides EEG
(electroencephalogram) and EMG (electromyogram), which are the
two principal neurological testing modalities used to confirm or to rule
out several different diagnoses.
"Experienced, Credentialed Professionals"
• Patients seeking care for neurological illnesses and injuries at
Cayuga Medical Center are treated by board-certified experts in the
fields of emergency medicine, neurology, neurosurgery, neurologic
imaging, pain management, rehabilitation and physical medicine.
They work closely with a team of experienced registered nurses,
credentialed technologists, and physical, occupational, and speech
"Our Commitment to Customer Service"
• Nowhere is the commitment to meet the needs of our community
more evident than in the Department of Neurosciences. In the past
three decades our neurological and neurosurgical capabilities have
grown dramatically. These important services are strongly supported
by our Department of Imaging Services (one of the most
comprehensive in the entire region), the development of a certified
stroke center, the excellence of our ED and our EMS community in the
recognition and appropriate treatment of neurological illness and
acute incidents, and most recently the development of an inpatient
epilepsy diagnostic unit.
