Through our specialized programs and neurological services, the St. Jude Neurosciences Institute provides compassionate patient-centered services, life-changing research, and a relentless commitment to advancing patient outcomes.

We are one of an elite group of hospitals in the nation to be recognized as an Advanced Comprehensive Stroke Center. This coveted designation recognizes our ability to offer the highest-quality stroke care available today. Learn more about personalized stroke services, treatments and services.

St. Jude’s Center for Neuro-Oncology is guided by our commitment to finding new and better answers for our patients with brain cancer. We tailor each patient's treatment using the latest approaches, including new advancements such as:

  • Optune: this nonsurgical, electrical-frequency therapy disrupts glioblastoma cancer cell growth, representing the first advancement in outcomes for this cancer in over a decade.
  • Gleolan: We are one of the first hospitals in the nation to use this revolutionary imaging agent, which clearly delineates tumor tissue from healthy brain tissue during surgery, improving safety, accuracy and survival.
  • NeuroBlate: using this minimally invasive surgical tool, which combines robotics, lasers, temperature mapping and sophisticated software, our neurosurgeons are able to ablate complex brain lesions with extreme precision.

In addition, our partnership with some of the nation’s top research consortiums allows us to offer patients some of the most promising clinical trials. 

St. Jude’s neurosurgery program is one of the most advanced in the nation. Our neurosurgical “smart” suite – the first of its kind in California – combines intraoperative MRI and a revolutionary neuro-navigation system that function together like a highly precise GPS system inside the brain, giving patients the best potential for successful outcomes. Our fellowship-trained neurosurgeons and neurointerventional radiologists utilize these and other leading-edge technologies to provide expert care for the full range of neurosurgical conditions, from brain injuries and complex brain tumors to nerve compression and herniated disks.

Pain profoundly affects every area of your life – which is why we’ve created one of the country’s most successful chronic pain programs. Using an innovative multidisciplinary approach, we help patients throughout the country regain their quality of life. Learn more about our pain treatment services.

Our nationally respected neurological rehabilitation programs include inpatient and outpatient settings. Our therapists offer the most advanced care available, helping individuals of all ages successfully recover from strokes, spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, amputations, vestibular and balance disorders, diabetic neuropathy and other medical conditions.

The physical, occupational and speech therapists in our outpatient neurorehabilitation program provide skilled, experienced support for people with movement disorders. Working closely with patients’ referring neurologists, our therapists use advanced rehabilitation tools and techniques to help patients optimize their movement and function.

The St. Jude Sleep Center brings unusual expertise to the most common and undiagnosed sleep problem in America today: sleep apnea. By specializing in this frequently overlooked sleep disorder, we offer the clinical knowledge to fully evaluate and accurately identify the cause, as well as create the most effective, personalized treatment.

The St. Jude Neurosciences Institute is a nationally recognized leader in successfully treating a wide range of neurological conditions. Named one the country’s highest performing hospitals in neurosurgery by U.S. News & World Report – and one of America's 100 Best Hospitals in stroke care by Healthgrades – we offer a level of care available at very few hospitals in the nation.

Our physicians and multidisciplinary teams are at the forefront of creating national models for evidence-based treatment. We bring together more than a dozen specialties, life-saving research and a relentless commitment to advancing patient outcomes, giving our patients the very best opportunity to recover and heal.
