ECU Health is proud to offer advanced and comprehensive neurological care to residents of eastern North Carolina.

Neurological issues — affecting the brain, back, spine and nervous system — can be serious and are often scary. They can include headaches, epilepsy, neuropathy, multiple sclerosis, brain tumors, Alzheimer’s, stroke, back/spine pain, carpal tunnel syndrome and everything in between.

We know that treatment for these conditions is needed quickly and often over a long period of time, and it’s important that you have access to services close to home. We offer a comprehensive range of diagnostic tests and treatments for patients facing all types of neurological conditions. And our providers are among the best — board certified, experienced and highly skilled.

Neurological Expertise

Why ECU Health Neurological Care?

We have access to the latest tests, technologies and treatments and remain on the cutting edge of advances in care. We also have the only neurological intensive care unit in the region, located at ECU Health Medical Center in Greenville.

Neurological care often calls for a multispecialty team of skilled professionals. At ECU Health, we have you covered, with all the care you need from one health system. And our patient- and family-centered approach means we never forget that you and your loved ones are important members of your care team.

You won’t have to travel far to receive quality neurological care. That’s important when you’re dealing with specialized care for yourself or a family member. There is no need to spend your resources on gas or hotel expenses or put your life on hold while you’re receiving care.

With cutting-edge technologies like the Mazor X®, Gamma Knife®, CyberKnife®, NeuroBlate®, GammaTile®, aneurysm coilings and endovascular treatment for stroke, we’re able to help many patients who aren’t candidates for more traditional procedures. And it’s not just about saving lives – it’s about giving you the best quality of life possible.

Extensive training and experience allow us to provide optimal care to adult and pediatric patients.

We know that brain and spine conditions may affect your ability to perform basic daily tasks and cause emotional or financial burdens for you and your family. We go beyond medical care to offer quality rehabilitation programs, support services and educational resources.
