When You Should See a Neurologist

Generally, patients with neurological problems such as concussions, headaches, or numbness are good candidates for a neurologist’s care. Other symptoms you may notice include memory problems, muscle weakness, tremors, or difficulty communicating. These symptoms may indicate a brain or nervous system problem, which your neurologist can diagnose through several evaluations. Your physician will examine your sensory function, balance, coordination, gait, eye control, language comprehension, and other neurological skills. These noninvasive, painless tests help your doctor determine whether follow-up diagnostic testing is needed, such as a CT or MRI scan.

State-of-the-Art Technology

Advanced Neurosurgical Technologies: BrainSuite® Overview

We pride ourselves on utilizing the cutting-edge BrainSuite® technology, a sophisticated imaging system uniquely designed for brain and spinal procedures. Distinguished as one of the few hospitals in California equipped with BrainSuite in the OR, we offer unparalleled precision in navigating the intricate pathways of the brain and spinal cord. BrainSuite integrates several key technologies—neuronavigation, enhanced visualization, strategic patient positioning, and sophisticated image processing. This integration is critical for reducing surgical incisions and enhancing the accuracy of treatments.

The Role of Intraoperative Imaging

To achieve real-time imaging of the spine and brain during surgical procedures, our neurosurgeons utilize the innovative Bodytom® and Certom® systems. These state-of-the-art imaging solutions enable the precise placement of surgical instruments. By leveraging these technologies, we not only can improve patient outcomes but also broaden the scope of minimally invasive surgeries available to our patients, marking a significant step forward in neurosurgical care.

Advancements in Interventional Radiology: The Biplane System

The introduction of the Artis zee biplane system has revolutionized interventional radiology within our Neurosurgery Department. This advanced technology provides our surgeons with superior 3D imaging capabilities, facilitating easier patient access, and offering comprehensive coverage for diagnostic and therapeutic procedures involving the brain, spine, and specialized pediatric care. Through the adoption of the biplane system, we continue to enhance our ability to safely and efficiently manage a wide array of neurological conditions.
