More than 795,000 people suffer a stroke in the United States each year and on average an American dies of a stroke every 4 minutes.
Whether it is strokes, intracranial hemorrhage (bleeding into the brain), traumatic brain injury, aneurysm rupture or spinal cord injuries, when it comes to the brain and spinal cord, time is tissue. Brain and spinal cord injury is a serious cause of death and disability which can be prevented or greatly by helped by neuro-critical care.
Neuro-Critical Care is a branch of medicine that deals with life threatening diseases of the nervous system. Patient care is provided with a multidisciplinary approach that involves careful coordination among specialists in Neuro-critical Care, Critical Care, Neurosurgery, Neurology, Trauma surgery, Ortho Spine and a host of others.
We are one of the few practices in the nation with 18 of our physicians being Board Certified in Neuro-Critical Medicine. Our physicians have an unsurpassed level of skill, a plethora of experience and abundant compassion when it comes to taking care of patients with complex brain injuries. In affable collaboration with other services our group has played a key role in the establishment of a Neurosciences program at Centura Hospitals. We provide expert Neuro-Critical Care services to the patients at St Anthony Hospital which in addition to being a level 1 trauma center is now an award-winning Certified Comprehensive Stroke Center.

Dr. Lange, What a difference your diagnosis of my sleep apnea has made. I had the dental appliance made. I have been using it very successfully for several months now. I sleep better, get up much less frequently, don’t wake my husband, and have more energy. Thank you again for your excellent education regarding this condition. I will be sharing what I learned with others who may be interested. Blessings, -JB
