State-of-the-Art Technology for Advanced Neurological Treatment
UH Neurological Institute is one of only a few institutions in the country to offer patients all the following technologies:
- Proton therapy: A highly advanced technique that allows radiation oncologists to target tumors with the maximum cancer-destroying capabilities of radiation while decreasing damage to healthy tissue and organs
- NeuroBlate® system: A revolutionary technology that destroys brain tumors using a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-guided laser; our institute is one of only a handful in the world that offers NeuroBlate (formerly called AutoLITT)
- CyberKnife®: A painless, noninvasive technique for treating tumors and lesions previously considered untreatable
- Gamma Knife: The most accurate form of stereotactic radiosurgery for the brain; this technology pinpoints one area with numerous radiation beams without damaging surrounding healthy tissue
- Electromyography (EMG) lab: Helps identify causes of numbness, paralysis, muscle weakness or spasm, providing an accurate road map for treatment planning
- Autonomic lab: Tests the performance of nerves traveling from the brain to various major organs, like the heart, stomach and bladder
- Deep brain stimulation (DBS): Manages tremors, movement and walking problems via surgical implantation of electrodes in the brain and pulse generators in the upper chest just beneath the collarbones
- Spinal cord stimulation: Uses spinal cord neurostimulators that deliver targeted chronic pain management. The neurostimulator is inserted under the skin through a small incision in the upper buttock, while the long-term lead is implanted in the epidural space of the spinal cord
- Intrathecal drug delivery: Also known as the "pain pump" or “baclofen pump,” this simple procedure uses a small pump to deliver medication directly to a patient's spinal cord. The pump is placed under the abdominal skin through a minimally invasive procedure and delivers medication through a catheter to the area around the spinal cord.
- Surgical treatment of epilepsy: Seizures that do not respond to pharmaceutical management may be reduced or eliminated through epilepsy surgery. Advances in presurgical diagnostic techniques, including brainmapping, expand therapeutic options to a larger percentage of epileptic patients.
- Surgical treatment of facial pain: Accurately identifies source of pain before devising customized surgical treatments; surgical solutions are available to relieve pain associated with trigeminal neuralgia, multiple sclerosis, tumors and a variety of other neuropathies.
