Nationally Renowned Neuroscience and Spine Care on the Eastside
May 20, 2022
The Eastside Health Alliance joint venture was established in 2017 under a shared vision of integrating areas of expertise from Overlake Medical Center and EvergreenHealth in neurosciences and cardiology to provide a comprehensive, best-in-class level of care in each respective specialty for patients on the Eastside.
Partnering across health systems, after formalizing the neuroscience partnership in 2019, the collaborative team of physicians and leaders developed a joint program under a new brand called the Eastside Neuroscience Institute.
“We are committed to offering easily accessible, leading-edge treatments with the absolute best patient experience. Our collective expertise, technology and resources have enabled us to do so,” says David Likosky, MD, medical director of the Eastside Neuroscience Institute.
The multidisciplinary groups of providers, including neurosurgeons, orthopedic spine surgeons, neurologists, advanced-practice providers and neuropsychologists, work side-by-side to treat conditions impacting the spine, brain and entire nervous system. They are at the forefront of the most advanced technology and treatments—from the most common conditions to the most complex—for the full spectrum of neuroscience and spine care including:
- Brain and spine tumors.
- Multiple sclerosis/neuro-immunology.
- Degenerative/cognition disorders.
- Movement disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease.
- Headache/migraine pain medicine.
- Stroke and cerebrovascular disease.
- Back pain and spine disease.
“Our collaboration allows us to facilitate timely, cooperative care for our neurosurgery and neurology patients. We are honored to help serve the needs of our community,” says Olav Jaren, MD, PhD, Overlake neurologist with the Eastside Neuroscience Institute.
The Institute is actively involved in many research studies and large national clinical trials. This means patients have access to promising new therapies before they are available at other hospitals.
The entire team, which spans locations in Bellevue and Kirkland, is committed to creating a seamless patient experience, with direct communication between patients and providers so patients understand their diagnosis, treatment options and next steps.
“Patients who are treated at the Eastside Neuroscience Institute have shared how much providers do for them across the continuum of their care," says Amitoz Manhas, MD, Overlake neurosurgeon with the Eastside Neuroscience Institute. "The outstanding detail is that the familiarity and personal touch that has come to be known from Overlake and EvergreenHealth is consistently coupled with a high level of expertise from our team.”
