With the most comprehensive offering of neurological care in South Texas and the region’s largest stroke care network, Memorial Hermann is advancing the diagnosis, treatment and management of brain diseases and disorders.
In collaboration with McGovern Medical School at UTHealth, our team of affiliated, world-class clinicians, researchers and educators at the renowned Mischer Neuroscience Institute perform more than 7,000 procedures annually in our surgical suites. Among them are innovative techniques that push the envelope of neurological and neurosurgical care: laser ablation that allows patients with epilepsy to lead productive lives, resections of arteriovenous malformations that prevent life-threatening brain hemorrhage, and Gamma Knife radiosurgery that makes treatment of brain tumors safe, quick, and effective.
Mischer Neuroscience Institute is also a national leader in surgical treatments that aim to ease the chronic, severe pain felt by those who suffer from nerve and spine disorders, and in concert with TIRR Memorial Hermann, provides the highest level of care for those who have suffered severe trauma to the brain or spine.
The Institute's network of care extends across the greater Houston area, bringing neurological and neurosurgical expertise to patients throughout the community via Mischer Neuroscience Associates (MNA) at Memorial Hermann. Neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuro-oncologists, and pain management specialists affiliated with MNA operate in state-of-the-art Memorial Hermann hospitals. They specialize in all aspects of neurological treatment and bring Houston area residents top quality care close to home.
