INDIANAPOLIS – Dr. Troy Payner, president and managing partner at Goodman Campbell Brain and Spine, has been appointed as the clinical chief of neuroscience for St.Vincent Indianapolis Hospital. In this new position, he will be responsible for the enhancement and creation of neuroscience clinical, teaching and research programming. Dr. Payner will work closely with St.Vincent administration – along with the St.Vincent Neuroscience Institute board and associates – to guide the institute toward becoming a destination of choice for neuroscience care. This is a part-time appointment; Dr. Payner will maintain his clinical practice.
"Formalizing Dr. Payner's participation in the institute allows us the opportunity to fully integrate his clinical and administrative expertise toward quality patient outcomes for those dealing with neurological challenges," said Kim Springer, executive director of St.Vincent Neuroscience Institute. "Our neuroscience medical staff and clinicians offer unwavering dedication to ensure optimal patient experiences. I look forward to working with Dr. Payner as a key leader for the institute."
Dr. Payner also serves as vice chair of the Indiana University School of Medicine in the Department of Neurological Surgery. He earned his medical degree from the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, completing his residency and a fellowship in cerebrovascular and skull base surgery. Dr. Payner is board certified and is a member of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons and Congress of Neurological Surgeons.
In 2002, St.Vincent expanded its neuroscience service line through the formation of the Indiana Neuroscience Institute. The structure of the program offered a formalized opportunity for St.Vincent to work collaboratively with five affiliated physician practices: Goodman Campbell Brain and Spine; Indiana Neuroscience Associates; Josephson-Wallack-Munshower Neurology; Northwest Radiology Network; and the pediatric neuroscience specialists at Peyton Manning Children's Hospital at St.Vincent.
The institute was renamed the St.Vincent Neuroscience Institute in 2011 and is an established center of excellence that provides advanced, comprehensive care for neurological problems in both adults and children. The St.Vincent Neuroscience Institute specializes in areas of brain and spine tumors; neuroscience traumas and emergencies; cerebrovascular, epilepsy and seizure; movement disorders, neuromuscular and sleep. Their dedicated team of specialists, neurosurgeons, neurologists, neuropsychologists, nurses and technicians ensure high quality of treatment, surgery and expert rehabilitation services.
In addition, St.Vincent contributes to neuroscience research, and conducts a variety of education and community outreach events.
Nationally, the faith-based institution is ranked and recognized for stroke by the American Stroke Association, HealthGrades and nationally accredited by The Joint Commission. The neuroscience specialists at St.Vincent provide patients with a comprehensive approach for all neurological needs.
