Collaborative and Consolidated Care
LG Health’s new Neuroscience Institute provides advanced, coordinated neurological care and research in a convenient setting with an approach that is unique to Central Pennsylvania.
“Previously, neurologic care in the area was fragmented,” says Timothy Martin, DO, PhD, Managing Physician at the neurology practice at LG Health and Chief of the Division of Neurology. “Now, we offer the full spectrum of care, from diagnosis and medical management to recovery, all in one location.”
The 22,000-square-foot institute opened in September on the campus of LG Health’s Suburban Pavilion. An interdisciplinary team of physicians and therapists with wide-ranging expertise practices collaboratively, providing a full spectrum of care for stroke and movement disorders to memory issues, concussions and headaches. The Institute also provides access to the latest research and clinical trials conducted by Penn Medicine.
Services include neurology, electro-diagnostics, neuropsychology, Alzheimer’s and memory care, a headache clinic, physiatry and a comprehensive outpatient rehabilitation program. Additional specialty programs focus on stroke recovery, dizziness and balance issues, spinal cord injuries, movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, and post-concussion syndrome.
A body-weight support system connected to overhead-mounted tracks holds you securely, enabling patients to practice walking, moving from a sitting to standing position, going up and down steps, and other functional activities with confidence and no stress on one’s recovering body.
