Marcus Neuroscience Institute Expands Services in Palm Beach County

New location now available to patients in Boynton Beach

BOYNTON BEACH, FL – August 17, 2021 ­– Marcus Neuroscience Institute is expanding its services to Boynton Beach, making breakthrough neurological care more accessible for northern and central Palm Beach County patients seeking comprehensive treatment for conditions affecting the brain, spine and peripheral nervous system.

The new location, at 2800 S. Seacrest Boulevard, Suite 160 in Boynton Beach, will offer neurology and neurosurgery services, including inpatient care.

Established in 2015, Marcus Neuroscience Institute, part of Baptist Health South Florida, is an innovative center of care for neurologic and neurosurgical care. Here, using cutting edge technology, experts address conditions from brain tumors to back pain — and everything in between. That includes movement disorders, seizures, life-threatening strokes and aneurysms, memory disorders, migraines, spine conditions and diseases such as multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s, to name a few.

Marcus Neuroscience Institute, based at Boca Raton Regional Hospital, was established with a lead gift of $25 million from the Marcus Foundation, initiated by Billi and Bernie Marcus, the founder and former CEO of The Home Depot. The Marcus Foundation has committed an additional $15 million to expand the Institute, which houses four dedicated operating rooms — including one equipped with intraoperative MRI and two with intraoperative CT capability. The hospital is also the first in the nation to feature both the highly sophisticated Siemens ARTIS Icono Biplane imaging equipment and the Corindus CorPath GRX Robotic surgical system in one place.

Using state-of-the art technology that promises to become tomorrow’s standard of care, the Institute recently performed their first robotic-assisted spine surgery using the highly advanced Mazor X™ Robotic Guidance Platform, which combines 3D pre-operative planning, robotic guidance and intra-operative surgical navigation.

“We are very well equipped with the newest technology,” says neurosurgeon Frank Vrionis, M.D., director of the Institute. “Our goal is to bring the most advanced care to as many people as possible, changing lives as we address a wide range of cases, including the most delicate and complex.”

Beyond a stunning facility and sophisticated technology, the Institute is highly regarded because of its exceptional standard of care. Marcus Neuroscience Institute is home to the neurological residency program of Florida Atlantic University’s Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine.

Marcus Neuroscience Institute has earned the Gold Seal of Approval® for Spinal Surgery Certification from The Joint Commission, the nation’s premier independent accreditation organization. The Gold Seal reflects commitment to the highest standards of excellence and safety in patient care.

The Institute also has been recognized as a comprehensive stroke center by DNV GL Healthcare, a nationally recognized certifying organization, and has been certified as a Thrombectomy-Capable Stroke Center by The Joint Commission, in collaboration with the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association. More recently, Marcus Neuroscience Institute was recognized by U.S. News &World Report for its excellence in neurological and stroke care.
