The Kentucky Neuroscience Institute integrates the expertise of UK neurology and neurosurgery physicians and researchers. KNI is a regional referral center dedicated to providing comprehensive care to our patients.
KNI offers patients the benefits of Gamma Knife® therapy. It is one of the most precise, powerful and proven treatments for brain and spinal cord tumors. Gamma Knife therapy does not involve surgery. Instead, it focuses precise beams of radiation directly on a tumor.
Additionally, we are the region's only Level IV Epilepsy Center. Our Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU) is a dedicated six-bed unit with the latest diagnostic monitoring equipment to accurately diagnose the causes of epileptic seizures, allowing physicians to create a more accurate treatment plan. The Kentucky Neuroscience Institute also offers the latest advancements in minimally invasive surgery, such as kyphoplasty and other spine procedures, which allows patients to recover much faster.
