Complex neurological conditions such as traumatic brain or spinal injury, epilepsy, brain tumors and stroke, require an extraordinary depth and breadth of clinical expertise from multiple specialists. To deliver this care, The Neuroscience Institute is built on a partnership between Maine Medical Center and community-based physicians.
Sophisticated resources for the diagnosis and treatment of neurological disorders have been available at Maine Medical Center for decades -- earning the hospital, its physicians, and other providers national recognition for their expert care in such areas as stroke, neurocritical care, neurosurgery, and neuropediatrics.
With the establishment of the Neuroscience Institute, MMC took the necessary steps to ensure these services continue to grow and exist in Maine's healthcare community. Patients and providers alike can take comfort in knowing we have the infrastructure and physicians in place to provide a comprehensive and coordinated system for delivering neurological care using evidence-based clinical guidelines and integrating medical education and research.
