Neurology and Neurosurgery

Neurological issues – affecting the brain, spinal cord and nerves – can be serious and are often scary. They can include headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, epilepsy, neuropathy, multiple sclerosis, brain tumors, Alzheimer’s, stroke and everything in between. 

Vidant Health is proud to offer top-notch neurological care to the residents of eastern North Carolina. We know that treatment for these conditions is needed quickly and often over a long period of time, and it’s important that you have access to these services close to home. We offer a comprehensive range of services, diagnostic tests and treatments for patients facing all types of neurological conditions. And our providers are some of the best – board-certified, experienced and highly skilled.

Stroke is a significant area of concern for eastern North Carolina. Our hospitals have the doctors and the treatments that you need in a hurry to have the best chance of recovery. Vidant Medical Center in Greenville and Vidant Duplin Hospital in Kenansville have been certified as a Primary Stroke Centers by the Joint Commission – a high distinction that we’re proud of.

Why Vidant?

  • We provide expert neurological care. Vidant Health doctors, surgeons, radiologists, nurses – all of the providers you’ll encounter during your treatment – are highly skilled, well-trained and experienced in the specific condition you’re being seen for. We have access to the latest tests, technologies and treatments and remain on the cutting edge of neurological advances. We also have the only Neuroscience Intensive Care Unit in the region.
  • We offer a multidisciplinary approach. Your condition will likely require care from other specialties such as radiology, orthopedics, cardiovascular home care and rehabilitation. At Vidant, we have you covered. You’ll get all the care you need from one health system. And our patient- and family-centered approach to care means we never forget that you and your loved ones are an important part of your care team.
  • We’re close to home. You don’t have to travel far from home to receive quality neurological care. That’s important when you’re dealing with your own specialized care or that of a family member. No need to spend lots of money on gas or hotel expenses, and no need to put the rest of your life on hold while you’re receiving care.
  • We save lives. With cutting-edge technologies like Gamma Knife®, CyberKnife®, aneurysm coilings and endovascular treatment for stroke, we’re helping many patients who aren’t candidates for more traditional neurological procedures. And it’s not just about saving lives – it’s about giving you the best quality of life possible.
  • Age doesn't matter. Extensive training and experience allows us to provide optimal nonsurgical and surgical care to adult and pediatric patients. 
  • Comprehensive support programs. We know that neurological disorders can affect your ability to perform basic daily tasks and that they can cause emotional and financial burdens on you and your family. We go beyond medical care to offer quality rehabilitation programs, support services and educational resources.
