Officials with Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital announced in early December the expansion of its neuroscience center, including the addition of two new neurosurgeons, according to a news release.
The center offers comprehensive treatment for neurological conditions and spine disorders, such as advanced stroke care and thrombectomy; ruptured aneurysms; carotid disease; tumors in the brain, pituitary and spine; degenerative spinal disease; cervical disc disease; and minimally invasive spine surgery. Surgeons use the latest technology and robotics to allow for more precise procedures and faster recovery times, according to the release.
Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital is expanding its outpatient neuroscience clinic to encompass neurology, neurosurgery and pain management in a single clinic. The clinic is slated to open in the second half of 2022, officials said, and will complement existing inpatient services and a neuroscience intensive care unit.
“We are able to offer every patient a customized treatment plan through a team of experts that specialize in every stage of diagnosis, treatment and recovery,” said Dr. Matthew Robinson, an endovascular neurosurgeon at Houston Methodist Willowbrook. “We have access to the entire toolbox, not only one or two specialized tools.” www.houstonmethodist.com
