Overview

Neurological Care

Chronic headaches. Degenerative neurological disorders. Persistent muscle pain or neuropathy. At Aurora, we understand that medical issues like these require experienced, compassionate care. Our multidisciplinary team will identify the source of your neurological condition with state-of-the-art diagnostic services and provide treatment tailored to your needs and goals.

Aurora Difference

Top Neurologists. Integrated Care. Personalized Treatment.

Many neurological disorders—Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy and MS—require long-term care and complex treatment plans. That’s why it’s important to work with an experienced team that has a deep understanding of your condition.

Our advanced approach to neurological care includes:

  • An integrated healing approach—we focus first on nonsurgical treatment methods like physical therapy, diet changes, medication and integrative medicine. If surgery is needed, we offer some of the most advanced, minimally invasive neurosurgical techniques available today. Learn more about neurosurgery.
  • Advanced, accurate diagnosis—our neuroradiology procedures are used to diagnose and treat brain and spine problems, including brain aneurysms and chronic pain. These minimally invasive techniques make use of first-in-class technology and offer a faster diagnosis and recovery. Find out about neuroradiologic care.
  • Compassionate care for chronic conditions—we’ve pioneered some of the world’s most advanced neurological treatments. But you’re still at the heart of our care. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis or another neurological condition, you can trust that the care received at Aurora Health Care will be both cutting-edge and compassionate.

Conditions

Neurological Conditions We Treat

The neurological conditions we treat include a wide variety of movement, memory, neuromuscular and nerve disorders. Some of these conditions—like Alzheimer’s disease and dementia—primarily affect the brain. Others, like Parkinson’s and MS, primarily affect the body. In the same way, some neurological conditions cause memory loss, while others cause chronic pain.

Whether you’re seeking treatment for epilepsy, neuropathy, migraines or balance problems, our experienced team will work with you to develop a treatment plan that’s right for you.

Services & Treatment

Neurological Services & Treatment

Just as no two people are exactly alike, no two conditions are exactly alike. That’s why we take into account things like lifestyle, age, diet and genetics when creating your treatment plan.

Depending on your diagnosis, you may benefit from both surgical and non-surgical treatment methods. Our experienced team of neurologists and neurosurgeons will work with you to create a treatment plan that’s both effective and right for you.

Non-Surgical Treatments

Non-surgical treatments for neurological conditions may include:

Surgical Treatments

When non-surgical treatments are ineffective or only partially effective, we may recommend a type of neurosurgery. Whenever possible, our procedures are minimally invasive to allow for shorter hospital stays and faster recoveries.

Types of neurosurgery used to treat neurological conditions include:

  • Craniotomy – during this procedure, part of the skull is removed to gain access to the brain. Craniotomy can be used to relieve pressure, repair an aneurysm or drain a blood clot. It can also be used to insert a stimulator – an often effective treatment for Parkinson’s disease. Learn more about craniotomy.
  • Brain Mapping – advanced brain mapping can be used to create a 3D map of your brain. This helps your surgeon see where individual brain functions – like movement and memory – are located. It can also help them spot diseased tissue or create a personalized roadmap for your surgery. Find out about brain mapping.

In addition to these techniques, our neurologists have pioneered other advanced surgical techniques and technology that are on the forefront of neuroscience. Learn more about our surgical innovations in neuroscience.
