Our Specialists

Our neurologists specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the brain, spinal cord, nerves and muscles in both adults and children. Our neurologists are an integral part of our Primary Stroke Center, the state’s first such center certified by the Joint Commission. They also lead the team of experts in our Level 3 Epilepsy Center, the first in the region.

Our interventional radiologists treat diseases and other medical conditions through image-guided technology in real-time. From a 3-mm nick in your skin, they can access almost any system in the body. We have Wyoming’s only neurointerventional radiologist and our 24-7 coverage of interventional radiologists allow us to treat stroke and other emergency conditions using the latest evidence-based technology.

Our neurosurgeons specialize in caring for your brain, spine and central nervous system. Neurosurgery is one of the most sophisticated surgical specialties at Wyoming Medical Center. Only a handful of hospitals in the Rocky Mountain regions provide such a high level of medical expertise. We are home to Wyoming’s first Stealth Station System and O-arm technology which offers surgeons greater precision in complex operations and cuts down on operating time.

Testing

Wyoming Medical Center offers various methods of testing to make sure you get the right diagnosis. They include:

  • Cerebral Angiography
  • Ultrasounds
  • Electroencephalogram (EEG)
  • Computed Tomography (CT or CAT Scan)
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

Treatment

Treatment methods recommended by your doctor can vary depending on your exact circumstances, such as your risk factors, overall health, age, severity of your condition and more. Some conditions like epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease and more are commonly treated with prescription medications.

Surgical procedures for the sensitive areas of the brain and spinal cord can be serious, invasive procedures. Because of this, a neurologist will typically consider a treatment plan involving medication if successful results can be seen without the need for surgery. Some of the common brain and spine surgeries done at Wyoming Medical Center include:

  • Craniotomy
  • Carotid Endarterectomy
  • Spine Surgery
