Memorial Hermann The Woodlands exterior

Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Medical Center offers residents of north Harris County and Montgomery County access to innovative, comprehensive, and convenient neurological care.

Using state-of-the-art technology, our affiliated team can diagnose and treat a wide range of neurological disorders and conditions, including complex brain and spine surgery and neurotrauma, sleep disorders, and other serious problems such as aneurysms, tumors and strokes.

The multidisciplinary team, led by Neurosurgery Medical Director Geoffrey Zubay, MD, includes neurosurgeons, neurologists, endovascular surgeons, pain management specialists, inpatient neurological hospitalists, clinical neuropsychologists, experienced critical care nurses, nurse practitioners trained in neurology and other specialized medical support personnel.


As part of the Memorial Hermann Health System, Memorial Hermann The Woodlands draws on the extensive clinical resources of their sister hospital at the Texas Medical Center and the highly acclaimed Mischer Neuroscience Institute. In cases where additional treatment is critical, 24/7 Life Flight transportation is available with a team that includes an EMT and nurse, both of whom are trauma-trained.

Memorial Hermann The Woodlands employs state-of-the- technology for diagnostic and surgical imaging, including Stealth navigation, PET/CT scanner, 3.0 Tesla MRIs and 64-Slice CT scanners. Neurosurgeons use the StealthStation® navigation system to pinpoint the exact location of brain tumors to within a millimeter and observe a virtual three-dimensional image of the brain. This data helps surgeons operate more successfully and efficiently.
