The Neuroscience Center at UPMC
Neuroscience is a medical specialty dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of all disorders, conditions, and injuries related to the nervous system. At The Neuroscience Center, we’ve brought together a collaborative team of neurologists, neurosurgeons, and rehabilitation specialists to comprehensively treat diseases of the brain, spinal column, nerves, and muscles.
Treating Neurological Conditions
From stroke and Parkinson’s disease to brain tumors and sleep disorders, our neurologists are committed to excellence in evaluating and treating disorders of the central nervous system.
Advanced Brain and Spine Surgery
When a condition of the brain or spine requires advanced treatment, our fellowship-trained neurosurgeons use traditional procedures as well as the latest minimally invasive techniques, which often offer less pain and a faster recovery. That includes the CurveTM Image Guided Surgery, which gives our surgeons unmatched precision for your complex procedures. This highly advanced technology provides surgeons with 3D image displays that aid them in planning and discussing highly individualized and complex treatments unique to each patient.
Surgery can treat and help provide significant symptom relief for conditions such as:
- Back pain
- Brain tumors
- Seizure disorders
Comprehensive Stroke Care
When stroke strikes, every second counts. Our acute stroke ready hospitals have experts ready at a moment’s notice—committed to timely care in the crucial minutes following a stroke. Our comprehensive program includes teleneurology, giving our emergency team 24/7 access to additional support from leading UPMC stroke specialists through real-time video communication.
Following a stroke, patients may need quality rehabilitative care to help them recover and regain maximum function and independence. Our Neuroscience Center offers dedicated stroke rehabilitation programs on an inpatient and outpatient basis. Our licensed physical and occupational therapists create a personalized recovery plan to meet the unique needs of each patient.
Trusted Neurological Care for All Ages
Our partnerships with leading health care organizations allow us to create an environment of excellence in education, treatment, and research about neurological disorders for patients of all ages. Our providers are passionate about extending proven neuroscience treatments to patients with a wide array of concerns. In addition, we use some of the most advanced technology available, like our Airo® Mobile Intraoperative CT Scanner, to aid our neurologists and neurosurgeons.
