McAllen neurological services 

Working together, our highly skilled and experienced neuroscience team is dedicated to diagnosing, treating and managing various neurological conditions, from brain aneurysms and spine tumors to peripheral nerve disorders.

Healthgrades recognized us with the 2023 Stroke Care Excellence Award™ and Cranial Neurosurgery Excellence Award™. Additionally, we received the Get With The Guidelines® — Stroke Gold Plus Achievement award with Target: Stroke Honor Roll Elite Plus from the American Heart Association.

Neurological rehabilitation

We provide physical, occupational, and speech therapy services to aid in recovery after stroke, neurological disease, injury or surgery on an inpatient and outpatient basis. Our skilled therapists will coordinate an individualized, comprehensive care plan for each patient in alignment with their needs.


When neurosurgery is the best form of treatment, our neurosurgeons use leading methods, including minimally invasive robotic-assisted technology and neurointerventional procedures whenever possible. This may result in fewer complications and better outcomes for our patients.

Stroke care

When a stroke is suspected, getting high-quality medical care fast is critical. Our hospital emergency room is staffed 24/7 with specialists highly trained to quickly evaluate and treat patients with stroke symptoms, including neurologists, neurosurgeons and specialized nurses who are stroke-certified by the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
