Arkansas neuroscience Institute trains experts from around the world.

The Arkansas Neuroscience Institute at CHI St. Vincent is a global leader and destination choice for research, training and patient care.

Top leaders in neurosurgery travel to ANI from nearly every continent in the world for hands-on neurosurgery training. Likewise, ANI has trained Fellows from more than 20 countries.

In the world of neurosurgery, ANI director Dr. Ali Krisht, FACS, is highly celebrated. He's invited annually to train neurosurgeons across the country and around the globe. In 2014 alone, Krisht will train neurosurgeons in Turkey, Taiwan, Italy, Finland, the Netherlands, Belgium, Brazil, Japan, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait.

Krisht is rated among the Top 1% of neurosurgeons in the country by physician ratings firm Castle Connolly. And, U.S. News & World Report names Krisht as one of the country's leading neurosurgeons. Kentaro Mori, M.D., Ph.D., professor and chairman of the Department of Neurosurgery for the National Defense Medical College in Saitama, Japan, described Krisht as"a top gun" in extremely complicated basilar aneurysm repair. Mori and three of his neurosurgeon colleagues are among many who travel to ANI in Little Rock to train and observe Krisht perform surgeries to learn advanced techniques in neurosurgery.

Dr. Krisht and the other ANI surgeons and physicians - Dr. Ali Raja, FAANS, FACS; Dr. Stylianos Rammos; Dr. Tarek Abuelem; Dr. Stephen Shafizadeh; and Dr. Emad Aboud - share an unwavering commitment to enhance education and serve as a model of excellence in the world of neuroscience. Training American and international neurosurgeons is one way ANI physicians can transfer their expertise and hands-on care to the patients of Arkansas and the world.
