Integrated Brain Centers are medical facilities specializing in diagnosing and treating brain disorders. They have facilities that deal with both adult and pediatric patients. They can offer treatments such as neurosurgery and rehabilitation.
Integrated Brain Centers have specialists in Neurology who offer specialized care for neurological disorders. These physicians are brain health experts, using innovative technologies to treat patients and ensure the best results. They also work with other medical professionals to ensure the best possible outcomes.
Neurologists treat patients with neurologic disorders and provide pain management. They may also prescribe medications and refer patients to other professionals, such as neurosurgeons and physiotherapists. Neurologists also perform a physical examination and evaluate a patient’s health history. They may request additional studies to diagnose a patient’s neurological condition.
Neurologists may also refer patients to other specialists, such as a neurosurgeon or an interventional neuroradiologist if they feel that the patient needs further evaluation. Neurologists may also perform lumbar punctures, a test to gather cerebrospinal fluid. Neurologists may also observe the patient’s speech and other reflexes.
Integrated Brain Centers provides expert neurosurgical care for patients. Our neurosurgeons are leaders in neurosurgery and have extensive expertise in diagnosing and treating various neurological conditions. They are trained to handle both surgical and nonsurgical procedures.
At Inova Neurosurgery, state-of-the-art facilities provide patients with access to the most advanced treatments. Their board-certified neurosurgeons team focuses on treating all spinal conditions, whether they require surgery. The center’s neurosurgeons also offer image-guided surgical navigation and robotic-assisted neurosurgery.
Neurosurgery is one of a doctor’s most extensive training periods. It includes training in medical school, internship, and residency. It also includes continuing education throughout the doctor’s career.
Neurosurgery specialists can perform various procedures, including simple and complex surgeries on the brain. They may recommend surgery after a patient’s primary care provider, or emergency room doctor has diagnosed a neurological problem.
Physical medicine and rehabilitation
Physiatrists, or Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation physicians, treat various conditions and disorders. They also work with other physicians to help people restore maximum health and quality of life. They are one of the fastest-growing specialties in the medical field. Physiatrists diagnose and treat physical impairments that affect a person’s muscles, bones, nerves, and joints. Some physicians specialize in treating patients who have suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI), spinal cord injury, or post-limb loss.
Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation is one of 24 specialties certified by the American Board of Medical Specialties. It is also one of the few specialties that are fully accredited.
Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation physicians treat patients with disabling conditions for their entire lifetime. Their treatments may include physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy. Some physicians specialize in post-limb loss rehabilitation, transplant rehabilitation, and spasticity management. These physicians have completed four years of undergraduate and graduate medical education. They then spend four years in a postdoctoral training program in physical medicine and rehabilitation.
