Neurointerventional services focus on diagnosing and treating conditions that occur within the vessels of the brain or spine. Neurointerventional procedures involve inserting tiny, flexible tubes called catheters into blood vessels in the groin area and up into the blood vessels leading to the brain. This allows the doctor to treat blood vessel disorders that can affect the nervous system, such as stroke.
Neurology treats diseases or injuries to the brain or nervous system. Neurologists and other staff diagnose and treat a variety of conditions for adults and children including headache, epilepsy/seizure disorders, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, and sleep disorders.
Neurosurgery provides both surgical and non-surgical options to treat disorders of the spine and manage pain. Surgeries regularly performed at Gundersen include releasing carpal tunnel syndrome; removing brain tumors; repairing herniated disc; and clipping aneurysms.
Pain medicine experts evaluate and treat acute and chronic pain.
Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation
Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R), also known as physiatry, helps restore lost function for people as a result of pain, disease, disorder, or injury.
