Norton Neuroscience Institute Treatments

Neurosurgery and Neurology Expertise Close to Home

More people in Louisville and Southern Indiana entrust care of their nervous system to Norton Neuroscience Institute than anyone else in the area.

Norton Neuroscience Institute specialists determine whether to use the newest treatments or established approaches to address a comprehensive range of conditions including stroke, tumors, epilepsy, headaches, memory issues, multiple sclerosis, spinal conditions and other concerns.

Our providers from across various specialties work collaboratively, often in the same multidisciplinary clinic, so patients benefit from a range of opinions for their care and can schedule multiple appointments for the same visit.

Brain tumor treatment. The Brain Tumor Center, a collaboration of Norton Neuroscience Institute and Norton Cancer Institute, brings together multiple specialists with unique skills to offer opinions to raise the level of brain tumor care. With same-day appointments and the experience that comes with leading research into new treatments, the Brain Tumor Center offers fast, quality care.

Deep brain stimulation. As a leading center for deep brain stimulation treatment, Norton Neuroscience Institute has neurosurgeons who are advancing care for movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor and dystonia. Electrodes placed in the brain — at the precise spot that can provide relief — deliver low-voltage electrical pulses that interrupt the signals that generate tremors and other bothersome movements.

Epilepsy and seizure treatment. Designated as a Comprehensive Epilepsy Center and a Level 4 Epilepsy Center by the National Association of Epilepsy Centers, Norton Neuroscience Institute has been recognized as providing the highest level of medical and surgical evaluation and treatment for patients with complex epilepsy.

Headache and migraine treatment. Having three board-certified headache specialist physicians and four specialized advanced practice providers means our patients benefit from new headache and migraine treatments and thorough research of new medications.

Stroke. No matter where you are in Louisville, Southern Indiana or the broader region when stroke symptoms occur, Norton Neuroscience Institute is ready to provide award-winning care. Our stroke care system is the region’s largest, standing by around the clock to activate a well-rehearsed response to deliver brain- and life-saving care.

Transcarotid artery revascularization. This procedure is an alternative to open surgery for certain patients at risk of stroke due to blockages in their neck arteries. The procedure is designed to keep potential stroke fragments away from the brain during the revascularization.
