The Brain and Spine Center’s neurology program helps patients effectively manage brain, central nervous system and peripheral nervous system conditions through monitoring, medication, surgery or a combination of all three. The neurologists on the Baylor Scott & White – Plano medical staff work closely with other neurology specialties to develop customized care plans for each patient.
In addition to imaging procedures such as MRI and CT scanning, the program offers several diagnostic testing options:
- Evoked potentials
- Nerve condition studies
Conditions Diagnosed and Treated
- Epilepsy and seizure disorders
- Memory disorders (Dementias including Alzheimer's disease)
- Headaches and migraines
- Multiple sclerosis
- Parkinson's Disease and movement disorders
- Stroke (Primary Stroke-accredited)
Baylor Scott & White – Plano features a four-bed epilepsy monitoring unit to monitor, diagnose and pinpoint brain activity leading to seizures. Based on results, the Brain and Spine Center can create a comprehensive care plan to control seizures. For some patients, epilepsy surgery by one of the skilled neurosurgeons on the medical staff may be the best option to reduce or eliminate seizures.
