Clinical Expertise with Compassion for Patients
Dignity Health neurological services works in pursuit of one goal: The best possible care for every person we treat
Neurology & Neurological Services
Chandler and our surrounding communities can now benefit from exceptional neurological services, including a Primary Stroke Center certified by the Joint Commission. We focus on community awareness, the rapid identification, diagnosis and treatment of acute stroke, and improving long term outcome for stroke patients.
Comprehensive Neurological Services
Neurology involves the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. Providing high quality neurological care requires a team of highly specialized doctors and nurses. Chandler Regional’s team of neurosurgeons, neurologists, intensivists, orthopedic spine surgeons, oncologists, anesthesiologists and nurse practitioners understand the importance of balancing clinical expertise with compassion for patients suffering from neurological conditions.
Chandler Regional provides patients with important, evidence-based neurological medical treatments including access to the clot-busting drug Activase® for stroke victims, as well as complex surgical techniques for brain and spinal injuries.
Neurological conditions we treat include:
- Acute stroke
- Disorders of the brain
- Disorders of the spine, stenosis, herniated discs, scoliosis and degeneration
- Disorders of the spinal cord and/or nervous system, such as trauma, infectious and demyelinating processes, genetic disorders and degenerative processes
- Infectious and degenerative processes
- Traumatic brain Injury —when the head suddenly and violently hits an object, or when an object pierces the skull and enters brain tissue
- Vascular or structural malformation—abnormalities of arteries and veins
As a Joint Commission-certified Primary Stroke Center, Chandler Regional has taken exceptional efforts to ensure we provide the highest quality stroke care available. We focus on providing better outcomes for stroke victims through fast, coordinated care and advanced treatment options.
Traumatic Brain Injury
Symptoms of a traumatic brain injury can be mild, moderate, or severe, depending on the extent of the damage to the brain. A person with a mild head injury may remain conscious or may experience a loss of consciousness for a few minutes. It is important to seek immediate emergency treatment.
