The Neuroscience Institute at El Camino Hospital provides comprehensive care for individuals with diseases and disorders affecting the brain, spine and peripheral nervous system. Neuroscience is a complex field that touches on multiple areas of expertise. We meet that challenge with a talented team of neurosurgeons, neurologists, neuro-otologists, physiatrists, neuro-oncologists, radiation-oncologists and pain management specialists. Their work is facilitated by our state-of-the-art imaging services, with easy access for time-critical treatments such as stroke diagnosis and interventions. Specialty programs within the Neuroscience Institute include:
Individuals who have suffered a stroke, spine or brain injury may need extensive inpatient rehabilitation, including physical and occupational therapy as well as evaluation and therapy from a neuropsychologist, a PhD-trained psychologist who specializes in how diseases, injuries, and disorders of the nervous system affect emotions and behaviors. Comprehensive care is available at the Inpatient Rehabilitation Center at our Los Gatos campus. This facility has been accredited by the Commission for the Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities for general adult rehabilitation and Stroke Specialty program.
The Center provides a full range of rehabilitative services for patients experiencing loss of function and independence from such illnesses or injuries as stroke, brain injury, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, spinal cord injuries or complex orthopedic disorders. The staff of rehab nurses, physical and occupational therapists, and speech language pathologists bring a wealth of experience in helping patients regain as much function and independence as possible so they can get back to enjoying their everyday lives.
