Our neurological services

We provide complete care for brain and spine conditions. Some of our neurological services include: 

Spine care

Our spine specialists provide care for acute and chronic spine conditions using a variety of surgical and nonsurgical treatment options to reduce or eliminate back pain and neck pain. They work with you to tailor your spine treatment to your needs. 

Stroke care

A stroke occurs when blood flow to the brain is interrupted, preventing oxygen from reaching the brain. When blood flow is blocked, the brain cells begin to die, which is why immediate medical care is essential. Our specialists are prepared to provide stroke care 24/7 in our emergency room (ER). Our team works together to quickly and effectively diagnose the type of stroke and implement the appropriate treatment. 

 

Stroke symptoms

 

Call 911 immediately if you or someone you know is experiencing any of these stroke symptoms:

  • Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding
  • Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arms or legs, especially on one side of the body
  • Sudden, severe headache with no known cause
  • Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes
  • Sudden dizziness, trouble walking, loss of balance or coordination

Incisionless brain surgery for hand tremors

Shaking hands from essential tremor (ET) or Parkinson's disease can decrease your ability to enjoy and carry out everyday activities. We offer quick, effective relief with minimally invasive incisionless surgery for hand tremors through focused ultrasound. The treatment is unilateral, or for one side only, and the results are immediate. It involves no sedation and no incision, reducing the infection risk and lessening recovery time. This procedure is guided by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and performed in an MRI suite.

How focused ultrasound works

This therapy focuses beams of ultrasonic energy precisely and accurately, targeting tissue deep within the brain without damaging surrounding healthy tissue. The ultrasound heats and ablates (destroys) the target tissue. This produces a therapeutic effect and improves hand tremors.
