Memorial's highly specialized neurosurgery facilities and equipment allow for the treatment of severe, emergent conditions. Our level I trauma center provides treatment for people suffering from major neurologic injury, and we are the only facility in Broward County to provide a state-approved Comprehensive Brain and Spinal Cord Injury Program.
The surgical team is complemented by neurointerventional radiologists, neuropsychologists, neurological nurses and therapists. Together, the team provides continuous care, from admission through discharge through such follow-up services as occupational, speech and recreational rehabilitation and physical therapy.
Community education and prevention services are also important to Memorial Neuroscience Center's mission. Ancillary services, including speech language pathology, audiology, social services and support groups, promote the well-being of patients and their families.
