Pioneering Compassionate, Comprehensive Care for Brain and Spine Conditions

When injury, illness, or disease strikes the nervous system, careful and expert care is a must. The neurology department at the hospitals of Methodist Health System are some of the best examples of Methodist's commitment to continuing innovation in medical science and careful patient care.

The specially trained nurses and neurological technologists as well as the independently practicing neurologists on the medical staff provide intensive care services and innovative neurological surgeries.
