Neurosurgery is the medical specialty that focuses on the diagnosis and surgical repair of diseases of the brain and spine as well as nerves throughout the body. As a national development site for new neurosurgical technology, Bridgeport Hospital offers skilled patient care and advanced equipment. Our neurosurgeons, neurologists, radiation medicine specialists, neuroradiologists, neuro-anesthesiologists and nursing and technical team are at the forefront of diagnosis and treatment of brain, nerve and spine conditions.
To locate disease, we use sophisticated diagnostic technology, including CAT Scans, MRIs and PET Scans. Our operating suite is among the most advanced facilities in the nation for neurosurgical procedures.
After surgery, patients recover in the surgical intensive care unit and neurosurgical inpatient unit staffed by skilled nurses, therapists and other healthcare professionals.
Many of our neurosurgical patients benefit from the physical, occupational and speech therapy services provided in our inpatient Rehabilitation Unit, and from the outpatient services provided by our affiliate, Ahlbin Rehabilitation Centers, at convenient locations in Bridgeport, Southport, Stratford and Trumbull.
