Advanced diagnostic tools using the latest technology and breakthrough treatment options are available to patients at Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin based on the research and clinical trials being done.
We are one of the top ten academic medical centers designated as a major hub in a national network for emergency stroke, seizure, spinal cord and brain injury research.
Leading the Way
A sudden stroke, a devastating spinal cord injury, or the progressive debilitation that comes with Parkinson’s disease are among the many neurological system conditions treated at Froedtert & The Medical College Neurosciences Center
- We are among a handful of medical centers nationwide conducting groundbreaking clinical trials aimed at helping people paralyzed by spinal cord injuries.
- In 2012, we were the first in Wisconsin to offer the newest devices to mechanically remove blood clots from the brain.
Leaders in Functional Neuro-Imaging Studies
The Medical College of Wisconsin was one of three medical centers to develop fMRI in 1992. Since then, Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin have become an international leader in functional neuro-imaging, as reflected in more than $44 million dollars in federal and foundation grants.
Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin neuropsychologists are research leaders in functional neuro-imaging studies of memory, language, movement, and attention in clinical populations including head trauma, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, Alzheimer's disease, Huntington's disease, Parkinson's disease, and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
Studies conducted at Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin have found that fMRI and Wada testing can predict cognitive outcome after epilepsy surgery. For more information on fMRI, go to the Medical College of Wisconsin Center for Imaging Research.
