Primary care for you and your family, close to home.
Your brain, spine and nervous system is part of what makes you so uniquely you. Each one is designed differently than anyone else’s, and your lifestyle, your body and experiences help define the wellness needs of your neurological system.
That’s why when you experience disorders of the brain and nervous system, our team is here for you. Patients consistently give our board-certified and fellowship-trained neurologists top ratings for their treatment of seizures and epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, migraine and headache disorders, Parkinson’s disease, neuropathy, and many more neurological conditions.
Neurologists work closely with our advanced neurosurgery team to provide world-class care for people who have experienced strokes. In fact, Wellstar is recognized for its high level of stroke care by organizations including The Joint Commission and the American Stroke Association.
Severe migraines and headaches can negatively impact your daily life. That’s why Wellstar experts offer effective treatments to help relieve pain fast.
We teamed up with Mayo Clinic specialists in Scottsdale, Arizona, home to one of the world’s leading headache programs, to bring state-of-the-art treatment to our patients.
At the Wellstar Headache Center in Marietta, we are focused on helping you feel better, faster. The facility is designed to make patients as comfortable as possible with special features, such as soothing light and quiet waiting rooms. Here, our experts are specially trained to treat intractable headaches and other disorders effectively.
We offer occipital nerve blocks, Onabotulinum A (Botox) injections, and the new class of CGRP blockers.
A growing number of people have multiple sclerosis (MS), myasthenia gravis, neuropathy, myositis and various neurological conditions that affect the brain. These patients may feel fatigue, have trouble walking, and experience other symptoms related to muscle weakness.
These conditions are caused by inflammation or autoimmunity in the nervous system. While a general neurologist can diagnose these conditions, a neuroimmunologist is a patient’s ultimate choice for treatment.
Neuroimmunologists specialize in immune system disorders, stay current on fast-evolving research, and can offer patients advanced treatments.
It may be difficult for patients experiencing confusion, epileptic events or seizures to get answers or an accurate diagnosis.
At Wellstar, patients are diagnosed and treated by board-certified and fellowship-trained neurologists who specialize in epilepsy. They offer routine and ambulatory outpatient electroencephalography (EEG) testing.
Wellstar is also the only non-academic health system in metro Atlanta to offer long-term video EEG monitoring. That means patients' brain activity can be monitored for an extended period of time for a more accurate diagnosis.
Once diagnosed, patients are fast-tracked to the treatments they need, including diet modification, surgery, latest seizure medications and vagus nerve stimulation (VNS).
Patients have access to a true continuum of care at Wellstar, with specialists collaborating for coordinated care. Our neurologists work closely with specialists across the system—including neuroimmunologists, neuroradiologists, neuropsychologists and neurosurgeons—as well as physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians and therapists in neurological rehabilitation settings.
