Treatments We Provide

Anti-Epileptic Medicine

Anti-epileptic medicine can help with seizures—whether you have epilepsy or not. Many conditions affecting the central nervous system, both physical and psychological,
can include seizures as a symptom. Your doctor may recommend anti-epileptic medicine to reduce the likelihood of seizures.

iMRI Guided Surgery

This system provides continuous MRI-guided navigation during neurosurgery, enabling minimally invasive procedures in the brain.

Diuretic Medicine

To limit a secondary condition caused by a traumatic brain injury, your doctor may intravenously use diuretics to reduce pressure inside your brain.

Emergency Neurosurgery

You may immediately need surgery to repair skull fractures, remove blood clots within or outside the brain, or to create a "window" in the skull to drain accumulated spinal fluid or make room for swollen tissue.

Brain Injury Rehabilitation

Brain injuries and concussions are usually the result of sports-related injuries, auto accidents and falls. An injury to the head can cause lingering and life-changing symptoms. Spectrum Health Rehabilitation has a complete continuum of care for those living with a brain injury.
