Bayhealth Neurosurgery Highlighted at Event

The Bayhealth Foundation recently hosted a reception and neurosurgery presentation at Baywood Greens in Long Neck, Delaware. Community members and other local residents gathered to learn more about Bayhealth Neurosurgery and its recent growth and developments.

Bayhealth Foundation President Lindsay Rhodenbaugh welcomed attendees and Vice President of Ancillary and Clinical Services Brad D. Kirkes, MBA, MHA, OTR/L, CHT, FACHE, shared background about the success of Bayhealth’s neurosurgery program since its inception in 2011. Mr. Kirkes introduced Medical Director of Neurosurgery Dawn Tartaglione, DO, FACOS, who joined Bayhealth in the fall and has been instrumental in taking the program to new heights.

Dr. Tartaglione spoke about the expansion in services and team members of Bayhealth Neurosurgery, now comprised of three neurosurgeons supported by five advanced practice clinicians. She noted the array of routine and complex procedures that the neurosurgeons perform at Bayhealth Hospital, Kent Campus; the outpatient spine services offered at Bayhealth Hospital, Sussex Campus; and the increased availability of patient appointments at their clinics in Dover and Lewes.

She also shared the exciting news that her team had just performed their first spine surgery using the ExcelsiusGPS®, a robotic guidance and navigation platform. Bayhealth was the first in Delaware to purchase a system of this kind, designed to enhance the precision and safety of spinal surgeries, and has used it for operations on numerous patients since. The minimally invasive and robotic techniques that Bayhealth neurosurgeons are trained in offer patient benefits such as smaller incisions, shorter hospital stays and faster recovery.

“Developing a trusting patient-doctor relationship is very important, particularly for individuals who’ve had a neurological condition or been though a complex operation. We pride ourselves on our ability to build those relationships and continue them in the clinic setting,” said Dr. Tartaglione. “By strengthening our outpatient presence and offerings in Kent and Sussex counties, we want to deliver that quality of care to more patients in order to meet the needs of the local communities.”

The event presentation concluded with a Q&A session during which Dr. Tartaglione fielded questions from the audience. She emphasized Bayhealth’s commitment to keeping our community healthier with the availability of exceptional neurosurgical care close to home.
