Comprehensive Care for the Nervous System

Neurosciences are a branch of medicine that deals with diagnosing and treating disorders of the nervous system, including the brain, nerves and spinal cord. We offer the latest minimally-invasive spine treatments to reduce hospital stays and recovery time. Our physiatrists are dedicated to the non-surgical diagnosis, evaluation and treatment of spine, nervous and musculoskeletal disorders.

Care options include:

  • Neurology

  • Neurosurgery
  • Injection therapy
  • Steroids
  • Physical therapy
  • Spinal decompression
  • Electromyogram (EMG)
  • Nerve conduction studies
  • and more

North Alabama Neuro-Stroke Network

Through the North Alabama Neuro-Stroke Network, neurologists at Huntsville Hospital are able to remotely examine stroke patients at outlying hospitals that may not have their own neurologist. When a stroke victim arrives at a Neuro-Stroke Network hospital, emergency room staff gathers their medical history, conducts an initial stroke assessment and orders a CT brain scan. The scan provides detailed images of any potential blood clots, damage or bleeding within the brain.

A Huntsville Hospital neurologist will then examine the patient remotely – day or night – using a high-definition video camera system. The system allows the neurologist to see and talk to the patient in real time, review their CT scan images, and collaborate with the patient’s ER doctors and nurses on a treatment plan.

Huntsville Hospital’s Joint Commission-Certified Advanced Primary Stroke Center cares for more than 1,500 patients annually and is recognized by both the American Heart Association and U.S. News & World Report.
