Introduction

Pacific Neuroscience Institute (PNI) is devoted to the comprehensive care of patients with a wide spectrum of neurological and cranial disorders. While we specialize in minimally invasive surgical procedures for difficult diseases such as brain, pituitary and skull base tumors, orbital tumors, neurovascular conditions and facial pain disorders, our dedicated teams of physicians span several subspecialties across nine Centers of Excellence, and routinely provide cross-specialty consultations, typically all in one place. We have a robust clinical trials program and an ongoing commitment to patient education, and professional training for faculty, fellows and visiting scholars. Patients visit us from around the country and across the globe to receive the expert, experienced and thoughtful care for which PNI is known. Founded in 2015 and affiliated with Providence Health and Services, the second largest hospital system in the United States, PNI has specialty clinics at Saint John’s Health Center in Santa Monica and Little Company of Mary Medical Center in Torrance, California. We are unique in our holistic treatment philosophy aiming towards restoration of quality of life and maximizing brain health. State-of-the-art facilities and the use of leading-edge treatment along with our collaborative approach ensure that each patient receives the individualized attention they require for successful treatment and recovery.

Patient Services

International patients can receive a consultation from our expert neurosurgeons for newly diagnosed or recurrent pituitary tumor, brain tumor, skull base tumor, or orbital tumor; facial pain syndrome that requires surgery; or vascular malformation. We promptly review your imaging studies and medical tests, and provide a recommendation for treatment options, including possible clinical trial participation. These preliminary reviews and recommendations are complimentary and are performed through secure electronic communications. We understand the anxiety of our patients and their loved ones, and we can typically provide a financial quote for all recommended services within 1-2 days. Should you decide to visit us for treatment or further evaluation, our International Patients Team assists you to ensure that your visit is as stress-free as possible. We make every effort to accommodate dietary or religious requirements and we are able to provide interpreter services in several major languages. Optional VIP concierge services are available to our international patients at Saint John’s Health Center. The VIP Caritas Suites is a premier, luxury patient care unit that offers our high level expert medical care combined with highly qualified, compassionate nursing attention.

International Solutions

Pacific Neuroscience Institute’s mission includes advancing the neurosciences and promoting brain health through novel research and innovative clinical trials. These efforts are often with collaborators both in the U.S. and abroad to spread knowledge through peer-reviewed publications and raise standard-of-care medical practice throughout the world. PNI takes pride in educating and training the next generation of clinician and research neuroscientists. International participants are able to take their newly acquired skills on to their own countries thereby providing higher levels of specialized care in situ. An ongoing collaboration with Fudan University in Shanghai provides a platform for shared knowledge transfer and academic partnership. In addition, PNI physicians routinely present and attend national and international symposia to share and learn about the latest innovations in the neurosciences.
