Our Emerging San Jose Neurosciences Program
Good Samaritan Hospital has received wide acclaim for our San Jose neurosciences program. We are able to treat some of the most serious neurological disorders, such as strokes, epilepsy, and spinal cord conditions. In fact, our department was accredited as a Comprehensive Stroke Center by the Joint Commission and is recognized by the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association.
Utilizing State-of-the-Art Technology
Neuroscience involves the study of the nervous system. Research can often heavily focus on the brain and the spinal cord as well, which are part of the central nervous system. Many neurological diseases that affect the central nervous system have become key topics of discussion in recent years. Some of these diseases include Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, autism, and multiple sclerosis. Our focus is to help patients address these complex diseases in an effective way through personalized treatment plans and the latest medical advancements.
We offer the following services in our department:
- Neuro-Interventional Surgery
- Spine Surgery
- Deep Brain Stimulation
- Neurovascular Surgery
Not to mention, our physicians have had extensive experience in neurosciences and continuously receive training on the latest technological developments in the field of neurology.
Why You Should Turn to Good Samaritan Hospital
The rooms in our facility have been outfitted not only with the patient's comfort in mind, but also to accommodate the technological devices that need to be used directly in the room. We have a state of the art neurosciences ICU. This ICU pays close attention to the different types of neurological disorders and aid the recovery for those who have had brain or spine surgeries. We are also a Comprehensive Stroke Center, further distinguishing the level of care patients receive at our facilities.
What Is a Comprehensive Stroke Center?
Treating nearly 600 stroke patients a year, Good Samaritan Hospital is one of the first Joint Commission-certified Comprehensive Stroke Centers. We have the most sophisticated technology and carefully trained staff to ensure we provide the highest level of treatment for stroke patients.
