Our neurology services
Residents of Southwest Las Vegas can take advantage of advanced neurological services, including minimally invasive spine surgery and stroke treatment, at our hospital. We have also expanded our neurosurgery services to include craniotomy procedures.
A craniotomy is a type of brain surgery commonly performed to remove a tumor, remove a blood clot, control hemorrhaging or relieve pressure inside the skull. The advanced neurosurgeons at Southern Hills Hospital can treat patients with technology that provides more precise navigation of the brain through flat screen viewing.
Emergency neurological care
If a neurological emergency happens to you or a loved one, the experienced teams at our emergency rooms (ERs) are standing by to provide immediate support. We provide emergency care for strokes, severe back and spine injuries, seizures and a host of other neurological conditions.
Our main ER in Las Vegas is a Certified Stroke Center and an American Heart Association “Get with the Guidelines” Stroke Gold-Plus Quality Achievement Award winner. Our award-winning care is available for patients of all ages in Southwest Las Vegas, Nevada.
Our highly trained team works to identify stroke symptoms as quickly as possible, beginning with emergency medical service workers in the field. By the time a patient arrives at the hospital, the stroke team is ready.
We are proud to offer interventional neurology, a subspecialty within neurology, for stroke treatment. It uses catheters and radiology to diagnose and treat various conditions and diseases of the central nervous system using minimally invasive neurosurgical techniques.
Here's how it works: neurointerventionalists thread a catheter into the brain and manually remove the clot, allowing for blood to flow. This can aid in restoring brain function immediately.
Neurointerventional radiology is most effective within a few hours of when stroke symptoms begin. The Interventional Neurology Program for stroke patients can be effective for both types of stroke, ischemic as well as hemorrhagic.
While interventional neurology will be heavily used to help stroke patients, this program will also be vital for diagnosing and treating various conditions affecting the central nervous system.
Our spine specialists are experts in neurological and orthopedic care. From spinal fractures to degenerative disc disease, we offer a range of procedures to treat a wide range of causes of back and neck pain.
