“Keith is one-of-a-kind. You’d have to look long and hard to find another doctor like him.” A driving force behind the University Hospital Foundation’s Brain Centre Campaign, Dr. Aronyk played leading role in creating one of Canada’s most advanced surgical suites with the Dan & Bunny Widney Intraoperative 3T MRI Surgical Suite, and in bringing Gamma Knife, the most sophisticated form of non-invasive brain surgery, to Edmonton.
