Center for Surgical Innovation
The Center for Surgical Innovation (CSI) is a one-of-a-kind research and patient-care facility dedicated to improving surgical procedures and developing new tools and technologies to advance patient care. Equipped with MRI and CT machines that can move in and out of its operating rooms, the CSI enables surgeons and engineers to rapidly develop, test, and validate innovations.

Creating the Future of Surgical Care
Surgeons are too often limited by what they cannot see—anatomy that is difficult to reach or diseases that are not visible to the naked eye. A few millimeters can mean the difference between restoring a physical ability and leaving a patient with permanent disability. It can mean the difference between curing cancer and missing a bit of tumor that may grow back. For such situations, high-tech imaging with CT and MRI machines during surgery is priceless to individual patients. When used in a research setting, such as the CSI, such imaging enables surgeons and engineers to improve both common and complex surgeries for entire patient populations.
Donors to the CSI have an opportunity to be part of a bold and visionary endeavor at the intersection of technology, science, innovation, and health care. A wide variety of gifts can help the CSI realize its full potential to advance the translation of better, safer care from the research phase into clinical practice.
The CSI is a joint collaboration between Dartmouth-Hitchcock, the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth, and the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth, with initial capital funding from the National Institutes of Health.
