Neurology Specialized Care

At Dignity Health, our neurologists and neurology care teams combine advanced treatment options with a warm, personalized approach.


Expert Care Giving You Peace of Mind

Neurology is a medical specialty that addresses a wide range of conditions that affect the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. At Dignity Health Southern California, our neurology experts specialize in diagnostic tests, neurosurgery, neurocritical care, and rehabilitation to treat these issues. Our neurologists and rehabilitation experts work closely with neurosurgeons and other specialists to provide high standards of care for patients of all ages, close to home.

Screening and Treatments


As part of our complete neurology care, we offer rehabilitation services to restore your physical and mental health. Dignity Health Southern California neurologists partner with other specialists to help you regain or improve functionality after major changes to your neurological system, such as a stroke or surgery. Your doctor will create and supervise an individualized treatment plan that’s designed specifically for your needs.

Our locations offer a variety of rehabilitation services including outpatient care which allows you to work towards recovery while living at home and maintaining independence. We also offer more intensive inpatient programs where you stay at the hospital and receive constant support for your healing. Both outpatient and inpatient programs are designed to get you moving again and help you achieve the best recovery possible.

Diagnostic Testing

Neurologists at Dignity Health Southern California use neurology tests to diagnose disorders of the brain, spine, and connecting nerves. Your doctor may perform a neurological exam along with diagnostic testing to get an accurate picture of what’s happening with your nervous system. Neurology tests are the first step to an accurate diagnosis. Learn more about neurologic diagnostic and testing.

Neurosurgery and Procedures

After a diagnosis, your doctor will begin a treatment plan based off results from imaging scans, blood tests, and specialized neurological exams. Your neurologist may prescribe medication, neurocritical care for conditions that need highly-specialized attention, neurosurgery, or physical rehabilitation. Learn more about neurosurgery procedures.

Neurocritical Care

Severe and life-threatening neurological emergencies are often handled by a highly-specialized, coordinated team of doctors and nurses. This care is provided in a hospital’s neurocritical care unit, or the neurological intensive care unit (neuro ICU).

At Dignity Health Southern California, our neurocritical team members include neurologists, neurosurgeons, anesthesiologists, hospitalists, radiologists, and specially trained nurses. Learn more about neurocritical care.

Neurological symptoms depend on the condition and what neurological tissue is involved. For instance, symptoms may come from damage to brain tissue, as with stroke or cerebral palsy; damage to a single nerve, such as one of the large sciatic nerves in the buttocks; or damage to many nerves, as in multiple sclerosis. Learn more about neurological disorder symptoms.
