Advocate's approach to excellence in neurology
Advocate Heath Care integrates advanced therapies and clinical experience in providing neurologic care for adults and children. Our innovative solutions address the complex conditions that can have a profound impact on our patients' well being, lifestyle, and relationships.
Our neurological programs rank among the best in the nation. Advocate Christ Medical Center leads the Chicago area in the number of stroke patients treated. Christ Medical Center's stature as the #1 hospital in Illinois for head and spine traumas gives a depth of experience important in handling critical cases. In addition, the hospital's multiple sclerosis program is one of only eight in Illinois designated as a National Multiple Sclerosis Society treatment center.
Advocate Children's Hospital - Oak Lawn and Lutheran General Hospital's physicians have dual board certification in pediatrics and neurology. They provide a wide range of neurological services unique to the region. The neurosurgery division at Advocate Children's Hospital has earned a national reputation.
Advocate understands that neurological issues affect every aspect of living. We emphasize the importance of support for the family and ongoing communication between the family and patient care team. We also offer support groups for children with hydrocephalus and spina bifida.
