The Good Samaritan Hospital (GSH) Neurosciences program offers a variety of inpatient and outpatient services for neurological disorders and stroke care.
Neuroscience and Neurosurgery
Neuroscience is a field that is devoted to the scientific study of the nervous system. Traditionally, it is seen as a branch of biological sciences, but more recently there has been combined interest from many allied fields—both inside and outside of medicine—including cognitive psychology and neuro-psychology, computer science, statistics, and physics.
Neurosurgery is the surgical care of the brain and spinal cord, and treats many diseases and injuries of the brain, such as:
- Cerebral hemorrhages
- Cerebrovascular conditions such as aneurysms and vascular malformations
- Brain and spinal cord tumors
- Seizure disorders
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injury (Patients may enter through the Emergency Department but are transferred to GSH Neurosciences)
- Spinal surgeries
Neuroscience patients are cared for in both GSH inpatient and outpatient settings.
Inpatient settings include:
- Emergency care
- Intensive care unit (ICU)
- Neurological Continuous Monitoring Unit
- Neurology unit
Outpatient settings include:
- Physical therapy
