When the topic is neurology, you want the smartest people in the room.
Neurology deals with the brain, central nervous system, peripherals and muscles. It's also one of the busiest inpatient departments at UM Baltimore Washington Medical Center. Our staff consists of highly skilled professionals, including physicians who treat people with a range of illnesses and disorders, but especially strokes and seizures. They also work closely with physicians in other disciplines to assure each patient receives the best, most appropriate care possible.
When surgical intervention is required to treat neurological disorders, our team of neurosurgeons and specialists at the UM Baltimore Washington Spine and Neuroscience Center offers complex neurosurgical care right here in our medical center.
UM Baltimore Washington Medical Center is a Certified Primary Stroke Center, meaning it can provide life-saving treatment to patients who may have suffered a stroke. The Primary Stroke Center designation permits Emergency Medical Services (EMS) personnel to transport apparent stroke patients to Primary Stroke Centers that meet the American Stroke Association and MIEMSS standards of care for stroke patients. As part of our commitment to stroke patients and survivors, we offer several outreach programs to enhance the recovery process.
