Treating brain and spine-related injuries and diseases demands the highest level of patient care. From diagnosing a disorder to helping a patient recover post-surgery, we provide services dedicated to treating and improving the quality of life for our patients. We treat many conditions:
- Cerebral vascular disease - a condition that affects the blood vessels in the brain
- Aneurysms - when an artery or vein bulges because of weakening of a vessel wall
- Brain trauma - any trauma to the brain or spinal system
- Parkinson's Disease - a debilitative disorder that decreases motor function
- Multiple Sclerosis - a degenerative condition that results in nerve deterioration
- Sleep Apnea - a disorder characterized by an interruption in breathing that results in lack of sleep
Our neurological capabilities include:
- A neuro-oncology unit that focuses exclusively on cancer treatment and patient recovery
- Management programs to aid in pain and seizure control
Surgeons and specialists use the latest technology to perform intricate procedures that get patients out the door and back to their daily routines.
- Diagnosis: Equipment includes ultrasound 3-D and 4-D imagery that scan the brain and aid in the process of diagnosis. Also, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and ultra-fast CT Scanners help physicians detect and diagnose neurological conditions.
- Treatment: In 2003, Cheyenne Regional Medical Center was the first medical center in the United States to use the Stealth Treon system to remove a brain tumor. The system provides a surgeon with an exact, three-dimensional view of the surgical area. This allows for less-invasive procedures and decreases the risk of brain and nerve damage during operations.
