Our primary care doctors are able to diagnose hundreds of conditions and can help you get started on next steps. If the expertise of a specialist is needed, we’ll connect you to our team of neuroscience experts.

Neuroscience Center

By building the largest freestanding neuroscience center in the upper Midwest, we’ve combined treatment, rehabilitation and research under one roof. To make this happen, we leveraged the partnership of HealthPartners Specialty Care and Regions Hospital, and we put the resources our patients need in one building.

From access to clinical trials to specially-designed treatment options, including an onsite MRI, an adaptive gym and a therapy pool, our experts are committed to providing patients with the best brain and spine care available. We’ll be by your side to diagnose and treat neurological conditions so you can get back to living your best life.

Clinical trials and research

Effective treatment options are available for the majority of neurological disorders, however some can be more challenging to treat. Patients who feel like they’ve tried everything often find hope in the clinical trials we lead. We are active in clinical trials and committed to furthering research. Learn more about our participation in current trials and other helpful research information.

Getting started Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Neurological disorders can be caused by a variety of things such as genetics, injury, infection or lifestyle and environmental factors. It can be difficult to identify the exact cause of a neurological disorder, and our doctors are confident that through our ongoing neuroscience research and that of researchers worldwide, we will have more information about their causes in the future. In the meantime, the majority of neurological conditions have effective treatment options to help patients comfortably manage or even resolve symptoms.

We accept most health insurance plans, including Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota, CIGNA, HealthPartners, Medica, Medicare, PreferredOne and many others.
