Bronson Neurological Services collaborates to provide more specialists and treatment options for its patients – including southwest Michigan’s only board-certified vascular neurologist, epileptologist, and a pediatric fellowship-trained neurosurgeon; a pediatric neurology program; and a dedicated Neurovascular Unit for patients with neurovascular issues such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, aneurysms, seizure disorders, CNS tumors and related disorders.
Bronson’s neurosciences team works closely with colleagues in neurology, neurosurgery, neurocritical care, epileptology, medical spine care, oncology, neuroradiology, orthopedics, chiropractic, physical therapy, and rehabilitation to best meet each patient’s individual needs. A collaborative team approach is an important component of the Bronson neuroscience program due to the complex nature of neurological cases.
