If you’re a patient at one of several nearby community hospitals, the providers there can easily consult with Novant Health Forsyth Medical Center’s neurologists through videoconferencing. This service is available in an emergency or for ongoing treatment of a stroke, brain aneurysm, concussion, brain tumor and epilepsy.

Brain aneurysm

A brain aneurysm occurs when part of an artery wall weakens and swells. Symptoms include:

  • Sudden, severe headache that is different from past headaches
  • Severe neck pain
  • Blurred vision
  • Confusion or loss of consciousness
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Nausea with vomiting
  • Seizures

If you or a loved one experiences these symptoms, call 911 immediately. If an aneurysm ruptures, it is a life-threatening medical emergency.

Brain tumor

If you have a brain tumor or neurological complications as a result of other forms of cancer, you can rely on the team at Forsyth Medical Center to provide leading-edge, compassionate care.

Headache and migraine

If you have chronic headaches, such as migraines, cluster headaches or tension headaches, a Novant Health physician who specializes in these conditions can help. If you’re 50 or older and get a new kind of headache you’ve never had before, consult a physician right away.
