At the entrance to every Texas Health facility, patients walk through a door to compassionate, experienced and comprehensive health care. A key strength of North Texas’ largest nonprofit health care system is our ability to provide personalized care at a choice hospital close to your home. For North Texas patients with neurological care needs, our front door is an entrance to help and hope for healing.
Some neurological conditions are rare, while others are more common. When you need it most, our medical staff offers the broad perspective and deep experience necessary to treat the spectrum of possible disorders.
Texas Health Fort Worth and Texas Health Dallas are regional destinations for high-acuity neuroscience services. We have a multidisciplinary team of caregivers, including physicians on the medical staff, nurses and therapists, who provide a high volume of evidence-based care. At Texas Health hospitals, physicians on the medical staff employ the experience and wisdom they’ve gained from being a part of our high-volume centers.
Texas Health proudly offers six primary stroke centers accredited by The Joint Commission. Texas Health Dallas is a comprehensive stroke center as designated by DNV-GL Healthcare. And Texas Health Fort Worth is a Joint Commission Advanced Comprehensive Stroke Center, one of the highest certifications that U.S. hospitals can achieve. It is the only hospital in Fort Worth and one of only three hospitals in the North Texas Region to achieve this accreditation.
Texas Health Fort Worth is an acknowledged state and regional leader in the treatment of brain tumors. We joined a rarified group by becoming the second health care facility in the U.S. to receive The Joint Commission Disease Specific-Care Certification for Brain Tumor.
Physicians on the medical staff pair an evidence-based approach with a willingness to use new treatments and technology. For example, Dr. Anthony Maioriello, vice-chair of neurosurgery at Texas Health Dallas, was the first surgeon in the Dallas-Fort Worth area to use BrainPath®, an advanced technological treatment option for patients with deep brain clots. When an opportunity exists to offer more options to patients, physicians carefully evaluate it as a potential option.
Other advanced technologies, therapies and research offered include:
- Neurodiagnostic: 3T MRI, iMRI, functional MRI, CAT, CT angiography, Flash CT, PET and SPECT
- Neurovascular treatments: biplane neuro-interventional radiology suites, thrombectomy procedures, and use of Pipeline® and Pulse Rider® devices for the treatment of cerebral aneurysms
- Cerebrovascular program with minimally invasive treatment options
