About Us

If you’re told you need an operation on the brain or spine, it's understandable for you to feel anxious or scared. Most large health systems don’t make it easier, either, by requiring long drives for consults and often confusing, disjointed plans of care.

At Hartford HealthCare’s Ayer Neuroscience Institute, however, you are the center of all we do. We make it easier for you and your family on this journey. We’ve brought neurology experts to convenient locations across the state and hold weekly clinical sessions so a broad range of specialists can consider every patient’s case.

When determining your care, we have every tool available, from the latest in surgical robots to advanced diagnostic and rehabilitation equipment. But what makes the Ayer team stand out is our personal, empathetic, collaborative approach to caring for you at every step, from the first encounter to your recovery.

You will see your neurosurgeon, but behind that one provider, a team of Ayer specialists stands ready to review your test results and offer their professional recommendations on the best way to care for you. Whether your care will address epilepsy using deep brain stimulation or neuro-oncology surgery to remove a brain tumor, our institute approach to care is the broadest and most effective way to help.

From the operating room, go to our neurosurgical intensive care units, where clinicians with advanced training in neurology care for you in the first days of your recovery. You may also work with a social worker or neuropsychologist who can help with any issues related to your medical care.
