Brain Care at Penn Highlands Healthcare

World-Class Brain Care Close to Home

Brain Care

When it comes to your brain, you want the very best care. And now you can get it close to home. The new Penn Highlands Brain and Spine Center — along with Penn Highlands Neurosurgery — have joined forces to bring the most advanced and effective diagnosis and treatment of brain conditions to people throughout central Pennsylvania.

Neurology Conditions We Treat

We diagnose and treat all types of brain tumors as well as non-cancerous conditions of the brain and neurological system, including:

  • Metastatic brain tumors (brain tumors created by cancer in another part of the body that has spread to the brain)
  • Primary brain tumors, such as glioblastomas and meningiomas
  • Tumors of the skull base, spinal cord, pituitary gland, or spine
  • Normal pressure hydrocephalus
  • Brain Aneurysms
  • Stroke
  • Trigeminal neuralgia and nonspecific facial pain

With six neurosurgery centers throughout Central Pennsylvania, our expert neurosurgeons can evaluate you, order diagnostic and imaging tests, and provide nonsurgical treatment without requiring you to drive very far. And, if you need surgery, you can get it at Penn Highlands DuBois, with all your pre- and post-surgery care provided at the clinic closest to you.

Here are a few good reasons for considering Penn Highlands if you have a brain tumor or another neurological brain condition:

  • Diagnosis and treatment provided by a world-class neurosurgery team recently relocated from leading Pittsburgh health systems
  • Decades of experience with simple to complex brain procedures
  • Integrated care with Penn Highlands oncologists for brain tumors
  • Six clinics throughout central Pennsylvania
  • Minimally invasive surgery when possible
  • Use of high-energy radiation to treat brain conditions without surgery
