Spine, Stroke & Neurology

The central nervous system is made up of the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves. It   controls most functions of the mind and body — from breathing, walking, talking and digesting food to interpreting what we see, hear, smell, taste and touch. 

Henry Ford Allegiance Health diagnoses and treats conditions affecting the central nervous system, with focus on non-surgical options and the latest minimally invasive surgical procedures. If you are experiencing back or neck pain, severe headaches, neuropathy, complications of stroke or other issues related issues, our complete network of physicians, services and specialty programs is available to help you restore the highest possible level of activity and movement.

The Right Care, When You Need It

No two people are alike – and each patient has unique needs. Our goal is to provide you with personalized care that is specific to your situation. Henry Ford Allegiance Health takes a conservative, team approach to treatment. We begin with non-surgical options that may include medication and physical therapy. If, after a thorough evaluation, surgery is determined to be what is best for you, know that our surgical team is trained in the latest techniques and procedures and has the experience and expertise you need.

There, our neurologists, neurosurgeons, nurses and therapists connect the services you require for overall good health. Our team will work closely with you and your primary care physician to develop a personalized care plan to meet your needs.

Blue Distinction® Centers met overall quality measures for patient safety and outcomes, developed with input from the medical community. Blue Distinction® Centers+ also met cost measures that address consumers’ need for affordable health care. Individual outcomes may vary. National criteria are displayed on www.bcbs.com. A Local Blue Plan may require additional criteria for facilities located in its own service area. To find out which services and providers (including hospital based physicians) are covered under your policy, or to learn about Local Blue Plan Criteria, contact your Local Blue Plan; and contact your provider before making an  appointment to verify its current Network and Blue Distinction Centers status. Each hospital’s Cost Index is calculated separately, based on data from its Local Blue Plan. Hospitals in portions of CA, ID, NY, PA, and WA may lie in areas served by two Local Blue Plans, resulting in two Cost Index figures; and their own Local Blue Plans decide whether all hospitals in these areas must meet Blue Distinction Centers+ national criteria for one or both Cost Index figures. Neither Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association nor any Blue Plans are responsible for damages, losses, or non-covered charges resulting from Blue Distinction or other provider finder information or care received from Blue Distinction or other providers.
