Advanced Neuroscience Treatments

Southeast Hospital’s expert team of neurosciences professionals utilizes advanced treatments and technology that offer patients the latest care close to home.

Deep Brain Stimulation

  • Provides relief from tremors for people with neurological disorders such as essential tremor, Parkinson’s disease
  • Delivers electrical stimulation to targeted areas in the brain that control movement
  • Blocks abnormal nerve signals causing tremors , other movement problems such as rigidity and stiffness

Vagus Nerve Stimulator

  • A small implant (“pacemaker for the brain”)
  • May help the more than 20 percent of people who do not show improvement in seizure control with medications

Image Guided Surgery (IGS) System

  • Allows surgeons to “look” inside the body and see infected tissue inside of cavities and awkwardly positioned tumors deep inside the brain
  • Allows surgeons to decide how best to get to a targeted area and avoid healthy tissue.

Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring (IONM)

  • Protects central and peripheral nervous system during surgery
  • Reduces risk of postoperative changes such as weakness, loss of sensation, and hearing loss.
