Renowned neurological care
St. Luke’s Health neurologists offer comprehensive care for a broad range of neurological conditions and brain disorders, giving hope to people who experience strokes and patients with some of the most complex diseases. Using breakthrough research and a collaborative approach, we are able to help patients recover lost function due to a brain tumor, stroke, or ruptured brain aneurysm.
Being the first in Houston to use CyberKnife® technology and the first in Montgomery County to use Gamma Knife® technology, our facilities offer the latest advancements in neurological medicine to treat patients effectively and with a shorter recovery time.
Not only are we offering the latest treatment options, but our neurologists and neurosurgeons are also continuing to develop new, advanced therapies. Building a brain computer to restore vision to the blind and revolutionizing benign pituitary tumor removal are examples of our projects that are progressing the standards of health care—and we are focused on continuing to lead the way in neuroscience in Houston for years to come.
Our neuroscience institutes
Our Neuroscience Institute at Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center brings you the most advanced means of treating complex neurological disorders and recovering lost function. Recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of the best hospitals in the country for neurology and neurosurgery for 2021-22, our Neuroscience Institute takes a comprehensive approach to the evaluation, treatment, and long-term management of persons with diseases and disorders of the nervous system. We partner with our patients and their families to develop a personalized approach to neurological health.
A referral resource for the region, the Neuroscience Institute is home to nationally and internationally renowned neurologists, neurosurgeons, and other specialists who work together to provide compassionate, patient-centered care. And through collaboration and the translation of scientific discovery to patient care, our researchers are able to bring innovative treatments from the lab to the bedside faster than ever. As a result, our team is a recognized leader in advancing the standard of care and performing many firsts, including the first treatment of intracranial tumors in a clinical setting using CyberKnife®, a pain-free alternative to surgery, in Houston.
Since 2013, the Neuroscience Institute at Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center has been home to our State of Texas-designated and DNV-certified Comprehensive Stroke Center (CSC).
Additionally, the CSC consistently receives the Get with the Guidelines®–Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award and the Target: Stroke Honor Roll Elite Achievement Award from the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association.
Additionally, our Comprehensive Stroke Center at The Woodlands Hospital is proud to offer a full continuum of care, including comprehensive evaluation, treatment, surgery, and long-term management for stroke patients, to the North Houston community.
The teams of experts at our CSCs can quickly intervene to stop the progression of stroke damage and prevent permanent impairment through minimally invasive techniques. Equipped to treat even the most complex stroke cases, we are committed to delivering safe, high-quality care using evidence-based protocols and a multidisciplinary approach for the treatment, management, and rehabilitation of stroke patients.
