Based in Zale Lipshy University Hospital, the Clinical Center for Neurosciences is poised to become the region’s first dedicated, free-standing neuroscience facility, and one of the few in the country. This elite status offers patients and referring physicians focused areas of excellence for neurological conditions.
Neurosurgery is but one aspect of a wide-ranging and unprecedented program of neurologic care offered within the Clinical Center for Neurosciences at UT Southwestern Medical Center. The Center also includes specialists in neurology, psychiatry, otolaryngology, ophthalmology, orthopaedics, neuroradiology/imaging, and physical medicine and rehabilitation.
Specialized, multidisciplinary programs include treatment for cerebrovascular disease, conditions affecting the cranial base, radiosurgery, neuro-oncology, epilepsy, stroke, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, complex spine, and advanced imaging, such as specific imaging to study the metabolism and physiology of the brain.
“UT Southwestern is fortunate to have national leaders in every neuroscience specialty,” adds Mark Goldberg, M.D., Chair of Neurology and Neurotherapeutics at UT Southwestern. “The Clinical Center for Neurosciences brings these expert clinicians together in order to provide coordinated, multidisciplinary care that works for patients.”
