Northwest Neurosciences is a medical center which provides care in the specialties of neurosurgery, neurology and pain management. Our goal is to provide timely services that will ultimately improve the quality of life for our patients. Patients should be provided prompt, accurate diagnoses and diverse options of management.
At Northwest Neurosciences many clinical disorders which were once approached with surgical intervention are currently managed with a nonsurgical approach. For example, most cases of low back or neck pain can be treated without invasive surgery. However, often there are serious clinical disorders involving the brain, spinal cord or peripheral nerves, in which case neurosurgery is required. In those cases, surgical intervention provides decreased morbidity and mortality, reduced disability and pain and an overall improved quality of life.
A comprehensive approach is presented to the patient in order to achieve an accurate diagnosis and develop an effective treatment plan. We manage several neurosurgical conditions, more commonly:
- Degenerative disorders of the spine leading to low back pain and neck pain.
- Stroke/cerebrovascular accidents
- Spinal cord injury disorders
- Brain tumors
Neurology is a medical specialty dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of neurological symptoms and disorders. At Northwest Neurosciences, we evaluate and provide treatment for a wide range of neurological conditions such as the following:
- Ischemic strokes/transient ischemic attack
- Epilepsy/seizure disorder
- Multiple sclerosis/demyelination disorders
- Peripheral neuropathy
We also perform the following diagnostic testing to evaluate peripheral nerve disorders and muscle disease :
- EMG – Electromyography
- NCS – Nerve Conduction Studies
