East Texans who choose CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances Neuroscience Institute for the diagnosis and treatment of brain conditions benefit from our integrated approach to disease management. Our medical team of neurologists, neurosurgeons, pain medicine specialists and physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists work closely together to provide care using a clinically integrated approach. Throughout diagnosis and treatment, we stay focused on our patients’ physical, emotional and spiritual needs.
Experience, dedication, teamwork and access to advanced technologies set us apart from other neuroscience providers in the region.

Our 12-bed Neuroscience ICU offers advanced monitoring and treatment for patients with neurological diseases and brain injuries. A new six-bed Epilepsy Monitoring Unit ensures that patients with seizures receive state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment.
