    Neurological and Neurosurgical Treatment

    At the Chicago Brain & Spine Institute, we recognize that neurological conditions, diseases and injuries conditions often come with uncertainty. That is why we partner with you to get to provide the most effective treatment for your unique condition to improve quality of life.  


    • Botox: Botox can be an extremely effective prophylactic treatment option for individuals experiencing chronic migraines. Individuals who qualify include those who experience 15 or more days of headaches monthly (either from several individual or one continuous migraine). 
    • Medication: Often, medication may provide relief from neurological conditions, improving quality of life and minimizing side effects. 
    • Physical Therapy: If your neurological condition is causing physical symptoms such as dizziness, imbalance or weakness, physical therapy may help you regain strength and coordination. 


    • Brain Path® Surgical Tool: Brain path offers a revolutionary approach to brain surgery by allowing neurosurgeons to access the brain directly and without interruption utilizing a minimally invasive design. 
    • Minimally Invasive Surgery: When possible, our neurosurgeons provide minimally invasive alternatives to traditional procedures, minimizing risks and allowing you to recover more fully and quickly.
    • Radiation Therapy: When open surgery is not the answer for conditions such as tumors, your neurologist or neurosurgeon may collaborate with a radiation oncologist, who can deliver precise radiation therapy to halt tumor growth, minimize associated side effects or eliminate the tumor altogether.
