Founded in 2004, the Brain Center is integrated with the Departments of Neurosurgery, Neurology, Psychiatry and the Neuroscience Care Unit (NCU). It is one of the biggest clinical brain centers in China known for its expertise in treating and caring for cerebrovascular disease, Parkinson’s disease, genetic neurological diseases, and brain tumors.
The Brain Center performs approximately 5000 annually surgical procedures. The unique acuity of these patients allows the physicians to gain additional experience and expertise required to provide the best possible treatment even for relatively rare cases. To improve patient care in the future, the multidisciplinary team of the Center works closely with basic neuroscience researchers and bioengineers in the Zhejiang University to find solutions for a multitude of clinical problems. It has accomplished great achievements in exploring mechanisms of epilepsy and in developing brain-computer interface to address movement disorders.
