Neurology at Group Health Medical Centers
From surgery for Parkinson's disease to vitamin B and new medicines, neurology has come a long way in recent years, and Group Health's neurology practice has helped lead the way.
Neurology deals with disorders of the nerves, blood vessels, and muscles, including brain injury, strokes, neurodegenerative diseases, cerebral palsy, movement disorders, spinal cord disorders, and headaches.
New developments in migraine prevention and care include scientifically proven alternative treatments such as riboflavin, a B vitamin. New medicines help those with epilepsy and "Many of the disease-modifying drugs to treat multiple sclerosis have helped our patients with MS remain active and independent," says Dr. Tim Scearce, MD.
Group Health's neurology team also uses other advanced techniques, including electrodiagnostic testing and neuroradiology. And they consult frequently with primary care physicians and our neurosurgery specialists, reducing the number of visits needed for effective treatment.
