Kingwood neurological services
Neurological care at HCA Houston Kingwood brings our brain, spinal cord and nervous system teams together to effectively deliver individualized treatments and follow-up care. Together, we work to provide compassionate care for a wide range of neurological disorders, including back pain caused by arthritis, stenosis or compression fractures, brain and spinal tumors, brain aneurysms and scoliosis.
- Emergency stroke care: Our stroke neuro-interventional team knows that rapid diagnosis and treatment is essential. Our physicians use advanced 3D “road mapping” of the brain with high-resolution images to quickly determine type of stroke and provide care. Treatment may include a combination of medications, surgery and neuro-interventional procedures, including mechanical thrombectomy or thrombolysis for ischemic strokes and clipping or endovascular coiling for aneurysms.
- Neurological rehabilitation: Some patients who have experienced a neurological event may need extra help during their recovery. We offer a comprehensive neuro and stroke rehabilitation program to help patients regain their strength and independence through speech, physical and occupational therapy, as well as other neurorehabilitation services.
- Neurosurgery: Our dedicated neurosurgery operating room and neuro-intensive care unit (neuro-ICU) provide the highest level of care to patients in need of surgery. Outfitted with advanced imaging technology, we're able to perform complex procedures with delicate, minimally invasive techniques resulting in faster recovery and shorter hospital stay. Some of the neurosurgery procedures we provide are spinal fusions, disc replacement and craniotomies.
