When it comes to your brain and nervous system, you deserve the best care available

Taking care of the brain, spine and nervous system is delicate work. These parts of the body control so much of what you do. Walking, breathing and even smiling are all possible because of your brain and nervous system. Those same systems are involved with serious conditions, such as brain tumors and brain aneurysms, Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis (MS), migraines, strokes, spine tumors, back and neck pain, and concussions. Our goal is to provide exceptional care for these disorders and to keep you living life fully.

One of the most important services Novant Health provides for you and your family is preventing strokes whenever possible. If a stroke occurs without warning, we want to provide high quality care. New treatments allow us to remove blood clots from the brain quickly, helping us save precious brain tissue. Our stroke prevention and care programs are nationally recognized. Novant Health Forsyth Medical Center, for example, is an advanced comprehensive stroke center. The American Heart Association has recognized Forsyth Medical Center with two honors: a Gold Plus quality award and a Target: Stroke Honor Roll Elite Plus award.

Our experts offer minimally invasive treatment when you are critically ill, as well as when you visit our clinics. We also use technology to improve care through our telemedicine programs. Providers across North Carolina consult with our recognized neurologists and neurosurgeons using videoconferencing. This way, all patients can receive the same level of care without leaving their local facilities.

What is an Advanced Comprehensive Stroke Center?


A comprehensive stroke center certification means a hospital is ready 24/7 to deliver advanced stroke care. It's the highest level of stroke certification, earned by meeting standards for the most complex stroke cases.

Our experts offer a range of other important services in neurosciences. Our board-certified neurologists and neurosurgeons offer you advanced care for improving or protecting the workings of your brain. Neurologists are available around the clock when you or a family member arrives in our intensive care unit. Neurosurgeons, neuro-oncologists and radiation oncologists offer the most advanced therapies for treating brain tumors. New treatments allow us to remove blood clots from the brain quickly, helping us save precious brain tissue.
