Centers & Programs

The Neurology Center

Patients have access to the expertise of an experienced, Johns-Hopkins trained, board-certified Neurologist. Neurology covers a wide range of neurological disorders, and the Neurology Center encompasses all of Adult Neurology. Here, the board-certified physician performs detailed and comprehensive neurological histories and examinations. Diagnoses are confirmed with testing in The Diagnostic Testing Center. Patients with painful conditions often receive benefits from The Pain Treatment Center.

Diagnostic Testing Center

Patients at McGreevy NeuroHealth have access to state of the art equipment and highly-trained technicians for precise diagnostic evaluations. The myriad of diagnostic testing opportunities assist the patient and the physician with a more accurate understanding of your clinical problem. The Diagnostic Testing Center includes Neurological Services with immediate results and under one roof. The Diagnostic Testing Center is integral between the Neurology Center and the Pain Treatment Center.

The Peripheral Neuropathy Program

Patients who experience pain and discomfort from damaged nerves are always seeking answers. Many have already been living with nerve pain for years. Neuropathic pain interrupts sleep, functioning, and quality of life. You may be surprised to realize that not all neuropathy is due to Diabetes. At the McGreevy NeuroHealth Diagnostic Testing Center, we take a step back to understand the root cause or causes. This is critical in predicting the prognosis as well as deciding on treatment options. The Peripheral Neuropathy Program overlaps with other programs we have to offer, such as:

The Spine Disorders Program

Welcome to our Spine Disorders Program, which has been at the core of McGreevy NeuroHealth. A large proportion of our patients derives benefit from this program. Here, we can diagnose and treat a myriad of spine conditions. One very important facet of this program is that we pay very close attention to structures other than the obvious, such as the discs, nerves, and joints. The spine harbors more structures than you think and so we must pay attention. Are we dealing with a spinal cord tumor, a vascular anomaly, a spine compression fracture, or a spine infection? These are life-threatening problems that we seek to eliminate from the differential early in our evaluation, and we are able to understand the bigger picture due to our Diagnostic Testing Center. We have saved lives with this critical first step. Once we are clear on diagnosis, then you have access to various treatment options. Not all treatment options are 'cortisone shots' or 'pain pills.'  We prefer to de-emphasize these. Our Spine Disorders Program is comprehensive, far-reaching, and interplays with the following programs:

CENTERS

  • The Diagnostic Testing Center
  • The Pain Treatment Center

PROGRAMS

  • Interventional Pain Program
  • Acute Pain Program
  • Degenerative Disc Disease Program

The Degenerative Disc Disease Program

One of the most common and debilitating problems we see in the Pain Treatment Center is Degenerative Disc Disease. DDD may manifest in multiple ways to cause pain, whether it be nerve pain, sciatica, spinal stenosis, or degenerative back pain. Luckily, we have constructed a program that targets the specific problem, starting with The Neurology Center and moving toward The Diagnostic Center and at last, The Pain Treatment Center. We have many cutting edge interventional techniques to treat disc problems. Multiple programs overlap with the Degenerative Disc Disease Program, as seen here:

  • Interventional Pain Program
  • Acute Pain Program
  • Spine Disorders Program
  • Neuromodulation Program
  • Vision Disorders Program
  • Balance Disorders Program
  • Fall Prevention Program
  • Sleep Disorders Program
  • Laboratory Medicine Program
  • Durable Medical Equipment Program

The Neuromodulation Program

Chronic pain is the leading cause of disability and lost work productivity. Patients with chronic pain refractory to medications, physical therapy, interventions, and even surgery are often searching for more effective methods. The Neuromodulation Center provides minimally-invasive, advanced interventional treatments, including Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS), Peripheral Nerve Stimulation (PNS), and Intrathecal Drug Delivery (IDD). At McGreevy NeuroHealth, you have access to specialists devoted to treating the most challenging spinal pain conditions. Multiple programs overlap with the Neuromodulation Program, as seen here:

  • Interventional Pain Program
  • Spine Disorders Program
  • Neuromodulation Program

  • Sleep Disorders Program
  • Laboratory Medicine Program
  • Durable Medical Equipment Program

Myelopathy Program

It may be surprising to learn that severe cervical spine disease may not only cause problems in the neck and arms, but also coordination of the legs when we walk. This gait problem is a specific disorder called cervical myelopathy. Early identification of this disorder is paramount, but can only really be picked up on a detailed neurological examination. At McGreevy NeuroHealth, you have access to a detailed neurological examination, which can be confirmed with specialized diagnostic testing, and ultimately treated. Early identification and treatment lead to the prevention of disabling gait problems and falls. Also, understanding the nature of the spinal condition drives patient management, as there are multiple causes for myelopathy. Multiple programs overlap with the Myelopathy Program, as seen here:

  • Interventional Pain Program
  • Spine Disorders Program
  • Neuromodulation Program
  • Balance Disorders Program
  • Fall Prevention Program
  • Sleep Disorders Program
  • Laboratory Medicine Program
  • Durable Medical Equipment Program

Joint Disorders Program

As the years go by, our joints harbor considerable stress and strain, leading to painful conditions such as osteoarthritis. Likewise, traumatic injuries may contribute, as well as create ligamentous and muscular tears and imbalances, further worsening the joint issue. At McGreevy NeuroHealth, we utilize a combination of examination, imaging, and diagnostics to your advantage to diagnose and treat conditions involving the shoulders, SI joint, hips, and knees. It may be surprising to learn that in addition to joint injections with cortisone, nerve blocks can be performed, and in some instances, radiofrequency may be applied as a non-surgical means for treating debilitating joint pain. Multiple programs overlap with the Myelopathy Program, as seen here:

  • Interventional Pain Program
  • Acute Pain Program
  • Sleep Disorders Program
  • Balance Disorders Program
  • Fall Prevention Program
  • Vision Disorders Program
  • Laboratory Medicine Program

Opioid Risk Management Program

With worldwide attention to the Opioid Epidemic, we stay current with the guidelines at all levels, including the Federal Government, State, and Local Authorities. Recently, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released recommendations on the proper surveillance of risk of opioid misuse and addiction as a means to prevent the disease. We take this very seriously. Patients who may require opioids for pain control are constantly monitored for negative effects. We also encourage the patient to take responsibility for their health with our guidance. This does not mean that opioids are not effective, but weighing an individual’s risk: benefit ratio is an important process. With this program, you will receive education on all aspects of opioid management. When appropriate, you are able to take advantage of diagnostic testing opportunities to guide your physician in making complete informed decisions. In the end, we are here to improve the quality of life, but preserving life takes precedence.

The Vision Disorders Program

Many are not aware that the nervous system is intimately involved in eye development before we are born. Our ability to process visual information requires that many structures are intact, including the retina, optic nerve, and visual pathways in the brain. Neurologists are trained to look into the eyes as a window into the brain. At McGreevy NeuroHealth, we understand how visual disorders may impair patients, how various medical conditions can affect the eye, nerve and brain structures, how various medications used in Neurology can affect these structures, how viewing the retina can indicate signs of vascular disease in other parts of the body such as the brain and kidneys, how viewing the optic nerve can indicate if multiple sclerosis is present, or if a brain lesion such as a tumor is present.

At McGreevy NeuroHealth, we take the approach, if you don’t look, you don’t know. Our diagnostic prowess affects safe and effective treatment decisions. We aim to educate our patients, to have a broader view of disease and treatments, and ultimately to save lives. Our Vision Disorders Program is special and helps us accomplish this.

The Epilepsy Program

Epilepsy is vastly underdiagnosed. The Neurology Center at McGreevy NeuroHealth is meticulous about diagnostic testing for a reason. We utilize brainwave testing known as EEG to diagnose many seizure disorders, evaluate cognitive problems, dementia, and various other brain disorders. Seizures can manifest in many ways, some more obvious with loss of consciousness and convulsions, others more subtle, such as blank staring spells, peculiar movements, even episodes of deja vu. Seizures can be debilitating without precise diagnosis and effective treatments. The Epilepsy Program is unique, providing video-EEG monitoring in the comfort of your own home. Video-EEG Monitoring at McGreevy NeuroHealth is accredited by the Joint Commission.

Patient Safety and Risk Management Program - Joint Commission Accreditation

The Joint Commission accreditation and certification is recognized nationwide as a symbol of quality that reflects an organization's commitment to meeting certain performance standards. The overall purpose is to optimize the quality and safety of healthcare for every patient. These high standards are aligned with those expected for Hospital organizations. Joint Commission accreditation for McGreevy NeuroHealth is purely voluntary on our behalf to better improve the way we take care of our patients.

Brain Injury Medicine Program

Brain Injury Medicine is a subspecialty of Neurology as identified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. At McGreevy NeuroHealth, we are proud to offer a growing program designed specifically for patients affected by Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Penetrating and Non-penetrating brain trauma, Closed head injuries, Diffuse Axonal Injury, Sports and Non-Sports Concussion, Cerebrovascular Accidents (Stroke), Brain Hemorrhage and destructive Brain Tumors.

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Motor vehicle accidents are still the leading cause of death in the United States in the first three decades of life. This is beyond mortality caused by medical conditions such as cardiovascular disease and cancer. There is significant associated morbidity in those who survive brain injury.

Beyond injury, manifestations often include challenges with attention and concentration, cognition, learning and memory, language and speech, communication, paralysis, sensory loss, seizures and epilepsy, movement disorders, spasticity, pain, balance, sleep, personality change, depression, and anxiety.

This population of patients requires more intensive evaluation and treatment. Particular attention is paid toward neurological assessment, functional status, mood regulation, neurotoxicity, pharmacology, neuroprotection, rehabilitation, neuroplasticity, neurofeedback, neuromodulation, the biopsychosocial model, and overall Neurohealth.
