The code that identifies the type of health care provider to which an NPI is being assigned. The following are the entity form codes: 1 = Person: a single human being who provides medical care; 2 = Non-person: an agency that offers health care but is not a human being (Examples: hospital, SNF, hospital subunit, pharmacy, or HMO)
The elements and distinct physical locations of company health care providers are referred to as subparts. Examples of subparts include: Outpatient services, medical facilities, psychiatric units, and laboratories are examples of hospital components. These components are often licensed or accredited separately by states, and they can operate in locations other than the hospital of which they are a part.
The primary taxonomy code identifies the type, classification, and specialization of the provider. Each NPI record can only have one primary taxonomy code. The license data is linked to the taxonomy code for individual NPIs.

The first neurosurgeons in Northern California to receive training in the BrightMatter Neurosurgical Robotic System are Lawrence Dickinson, MD, Jeffrey Randall, MD, and Ronnie Mimran, MD, of Pacific Brain and Spine Medical Group in Castro Valley, Calif.
2. Using BrightMatter, surgeons may prepare the best way to remove deep-seated tumors that are found inside or near white matter tracts of the brain while avoiding compromising critical motor functions.
3. Surgeons may use the device to construct a 3D model from MRI scans that depicts neural tracts and decides the best surgical route prior to the operation. The plan is then imported into BrightMatter’s optical navigation system, which guides surgeons through the process.
7. BrightMatter decreases the amount of dura tears and cerebrospinal fluid leaks during spine surgery. Drs. Randall and Mimran also stated how much easier the device was to use than traditional spine surgery.

Top Bay Area neurosurgical specialists Lawrence Dickinson, MD, Jeffrey Randall, MD, and Ronnie Mimran, MD, of Pacific Brain & Spine Medical Group, are the first in Northern California to be qualified in the BrightMatterTM Neurosurgical Robotic System.
BrightMatter technology provides neurosurgeons with unparalleled preparation, navigation, and visualization capabilities, allowing them to perform the safest, least invasive procedures possible for patients with brain and spine disorders.
Previously, removing a deep-seated tumor from the white matter tracts of the brain posed a significant risk of impairing a patient’s motor functions, voice, vision, or memory. In certain cases, the surgeon will advise the patient to undergo radiation or laser ablation to shrink or dissolve the tumor rather than operating.
To access a deep-seated tumor, a large opening in the patient’s skull will be needed, with a high risk of major trauma to surrounding tissue. It was not unusual for some patients to spend three to five days in the ICU, followed by a prolonged stay in a rehabilitation center.
