Nationally recognized care for brain, spine and nerve disorders

A stroke or other brain- or spine-related condition, can change your life very quickly. You need a medical center that can respond even quicker with the highest quality care. You have that at Novant Health Rowan Medical Center.

Our neurologists and surgeons can diagnose and treat a wide range of conditions that can affect your brain and nervous system, and our technology is state-of-the-art.

Brain aneurysms

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.

Neurosciences telemedicine network

Novant Health Rowan Medical Center participates in this network so that you always have access 24/7 to highly qualified neurologists through videoconferencing. This service is readily available in an emergency or for ongoing treatment of a stroke, brain aneurysm, concussion, brain tumor and epilepsy.

Dementia involves difficulty with at least two brain functions, such as memory loss and impaired language. Our goal is to give you or your loved one an accurate diagnosis and provide the care and support you and your family need to cope with this life-changing illness.
