Conditions & Treatments
Born from a long-term collaboration between Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center and The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) Medical School, the Mischer Neuroscience Institute is south Texas' largest neuroscience care provider and one of only a few institutions in the country to fully integrate neurology, neurosurgery and neurorehabilitation to treat patients with a variety of neurological disorders. See our full neurological conditions list below.
This comprehensive approach has resulted in Houston's only dedicated on-site stroke team, the leading epilepsy program in the southwestern United States, and countless innovations in multiple sclerosis, neurotrauma, spine surgery, brain tumors and more. We extend our continuum of care through inpatient and outpatient neurorehabilitation in our 23-bed rehabilitation unit at Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center, as well as at TIRR Memorial Hermann, a top-tier rehabilitation hospital.
At MNI, we treat a comprehensive range of neurological disorders such as:
Acoustic neuromasAstrocytomasBrain metastases Chordoma Choroid plexus tumor Craniopharyngioma Ependymoma Germ cell tumorGlioblastoma multiforme (GBM)Gliomas Hemangioblastomas Malignant meningiomas Medulloblastomas Meningiomas OligodendrogliomasPineal gland tumors Pituitary adenoma and Cushing's syndrome Pituitary tumors
