As a neuro-spine Center of Excellence, Fort Sanders Regional offers the latest advancements in neurology, neurosurgery, spine surgery, and neurointerventional radiology.
Neurology is the branch of medicine or biology that deals with the anatomy, functions, and organic disorders of nerves and the nervous system. The conditions can affect the way we walk, talk, comprehend and function. Neurologists specialize in the diagnosis and treatment conditions and diseases of the brain, spinal cord and nervous system, including:
Neurologists also help patients with back and neck pain, dizziness and vertigo, pain management and sleep disorders.
Our neurologists sub-specialize in migraines, epilepsy and other seizure disorders and neuromuscular issues and have extensive training.
Neurologists work closely with physiatrists from the Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center to maximize recovery from stroke and traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries and with the Neurodiagnostics Department to arrange specialized testing to help diagnose different disorders.
Neurosurgeons provide surgical intervention for brain tumors, aneurysms and hemorrhages, as well as a host of spine conditions. Neurosurgeons provide surgical relief for a host of issues caused by nerve and muscle diseases, carpal tunnel syndrome, chronic back pain and conditions resistant to medical management, like Parkinson’s disease.
Our neurologists, neurosurgeons and our neurointerventional radiologist work together to determine the best approach to treating each individual patient. Whether a patient needs medical intervention, surgical intervention or neuroradiological intervention, you will receive the very best care.
