Treatments and Services
Our multidisciplinary physician teams work together to provide the most advanced, quality care through our neurology, neurosurgery, psychiatry and behavioral sciences, rehabilitation and sleep programs. We develop individualized treatment plans and a patient-family centered approach to deliver the best possible medical care.
Treatments for Brain Health Conditions
Awake Craniotomy — During this procedure, surgeons go through the skull in order to perform language mapping to preserve language while removing a tumor.
Botulinum Toxin Injection — This treatment program helps with dystonia, hemifacial spasm, spasticity and other conditions.
Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT) — This therapy works by electrically stimulating the brain and improving the release of neurochemicals known to be important in the treatment of depression.
Cerebral Aneurysm Surgery — Traditional and minimally invasive endovascular coiling procedures are offered to help induce clotting to treat an aneurysm.
Deep Brain Stimulation — This is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that involves using small electric pulses to change activity in brain areas involved in movement disorders, epilepsy, and other neuropsychiatric disorders.
