Brain and Nerves

Treating neurologic disorders requires great skill, experience and a compassionate touch. When you’re a patient of the neuroscience team at Rush-Copley, you’re in the hands of experts. Neurologists on staff at Rush-Copley have an expertise in a variety of conditions—from headaches, Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s Disease, to seizures and stroke; while our neurosurgeons perform a full range of advanced procedures, including brain tumor resection, vascular repair and deep brain stimulation, the “pacemaker of the brain.” In many cases, patients can even receive outpatient ambulatory treatment.

Our entire staff works seamlessly together to diagnose and treat each patient with a comprehensive “mind and body” philosophy. From pre-treatment education to post-surgical rehab, they’ll make sure to provide for all of your physical and emotional needs, while offering comforting family support.

The Rush-Copley Movement Disorders Program provides management of Parkinson's disease, essential tremor, spasmodic torticollis, pediatric and adult spasticity and cerebral palsy through surgery and support services to help patients maximize their movement, coordination, and quality of life.

Our experts have extensive experience in advanced surgical procedures including deep brain stimulation for treatment Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders.

Electroneurodiagnostic Laboratory (END Lab)

Open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and every other Saturday from 7 a.m. to noon, the END lab offers patients of all ages the following diagnostic screenings: 

  • inpatient and outpatient electroencephalogram (EEG)
  • 24, 48, and 72 hour Ambulatory EEGs
  • Visual Evoked Potentials (VEP) - evaluates the visual pathways in the brain 
  • Somatosensory Evoked Potentials (SSEP) - shows the electrical signals of sensation going from the body to the brain. The signals show whether the nerves that connect the spinal cord are able to send and receive sensory information like pain, temperature and touch.
  • Brain Stem Auditory Evoked Response (BAER)
