LITTLE ROCK - CHI St. Vincent in Little Rock, Arkansas is home to one of the few world-class, community based neuroscience institutes, the Arkansas Neuroscience Institute (ANI). ANI was established in 2010 and has emerged as a regional leader of neurosurgery. To meet the growing needs of our patients, CHI St. Vincent is moving ANI to our North Little Rock campus. There we will create a medical destination and continue to lead the field of neuroscience. We will renovate our North facility to accommodate ANI's growth and expertise. Adjacent to the renovated patient care facility, we will build a state-of-the-art education and research center where a new generation of surgeons will continue to travel to learn the skills necessary to tackle the most complex cases and positively impact survival rates for patients with neurological disorders.
The move will allow the CHI St. Vincent ANI program to expand services and medical staff to better serve some of the most complicated and life-affecting neurological disorders for patients from around the world.
Currently ANI offers a full range of comprehensive neurosurgical services which incorporates a large spectrum of neurological disorders, including primary and metastatic tumors of the brain, spine, and nerves; skull base surgery, vascular neurosurgery, neuro-oncology, and spine and spinal cord surgery. ANI is expanding services to include epilepsy surgery and surgery for movement disorders.
ANI is directed by Dr. Ali Krisht, internationally renowned neurosurgeon who has world-recognized expertise in vascular microsurgery involving the treatment of aneurysms, arterio-venous malformations and acute treatment of stroke.
ANI is comprised of five neurosurgeons, each having a different sub-specialty. Collectively they perform over 1,000 surgeries per year with nationally recognized clinical outcomes. As a result, ANI is a leading destination for neurosurgery. ANI offers CHI St. Vincent patients, the Little Rock community, the state of Arkansas and the world the best treatment options from discovery to recovery with hope, compassion and expertise.
