Experts in Neuroscience and Neuorsurgery

Neurology and neurosurgery in Greater Houston and East Texas

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.
