Movement. Speech. Thought. Senses. With so many vital functions controlled by the brain and nervous system, it's crucial to seek the finest care when problems arise. At the University of Chicago Medicine, we have assembled a team of neurological experts who are highly skilled in evaluating and treating the most complex and challenging nervous system disorders — with and without surgery.

UChicago Medicine is home to one of the nation's few fully equipped and staffed neurointensive care units. Our neuro ICU provides the highest level of care for acute stroke patients, as well as difficult cases that require more than routine neurological care, such as people with life-threatening brain infections, persistent seizures and brain and spinal cord injuries. The neuro ICU is equipped with the latest technology, including continuous brain wave monitoring and portable CT imaging. Its location near the neurosciences inpatient rooms facilitates collaboration and patient-centered care.
The Center for Care and Discovery — Hyde Park is the home for neuroscience care at UChicago Medicine. The facility is designed for family-centered care and improved communication among all members of a patient's care team. Neurosciences facilities in the Center for Care and Discovery include two neuroangiography suites, leading-edge surgical suites, a neuro-intensive care unit (ICU) and dedicated inpatient rooms.
Our physicians have proven expertise in helping patients that other hospitals may consider untreatable. We regularly care for children and adults with rare and chronic conditions, and offer a holistic approach to care that takes the physical and emotional challenges of nervous system disease into account.
Our doctors are actively involved in national and international trials of the most promising therapies for neurological diseases. Behind the scenes, UChicago Medicine physicians and scientists conduct vital research that delves into the causes and workings of specific neurologic disorders with a goal of finding more effective treatments for chronic and complex conditions. As a result, our patients have access to new therapies long before they are widely available.
Our surgeons use high-precision planning technology to prepare for procedures and perform complex brain operations without destroying vital brain functions. Our neurosurgeons are pioneers in minimally invasive surgery, and offer this approach to diagnose and treat many neurological conditions, from neck and spine problems to hydrocephalus and brain tumors.
The Center for Care and Discovery is the main hospital on the campus of UChicago Medicine in Hyde Park. Opened in February 2013, the $700 million building was the single largest expansion in UChicago Medicine's history. Since then the 10-story, 1.2 million square-foot critical care hospital has become the bustling hub of the campus, providing a home for specialty care with a focus on cancer, digestive diseases, neuroscience, advanced surgery and high-tech medical imaging.
Neuroscientists at UChicago Medicine seek to advance our understanding of human behavior, mental illness and artificial intelligence.
