Crozer-Keystone Health System barely had received state certification on new neurosurgical equipment when the technology was called into action.
A 52-year-old Delaware County woman suffering from an acute stroke was rushed Wednesday to Crozer-Chester Medical Center, where neurosurgeons used a biplane imaging system to make an nearly immediate diagnosis and begin treatment.
"She couldn't move one side of her body; she couldn't speak," said Dr. Erol Veznedaroglu, a comprehensive vascular neurosurgeon. "She showed up and went right to the table and she's doing very well now. It saved her life."
Crozer-Keystone recently partnered with the Global Neurosciences Institute – a group of neurosurgeons, neurologists and researchers – to bolster its neurological services. Veznedaroglu serves as the director of that organization.
