The neurologists and neurosurgeons at Torrance Memorial Medical Center’s Lundquist Neurosciences Institute understand that living with a neurological condition can be challenging. That’s why we offer a range of supportive programs and services to help you understand and manage your condition.

Supportive Services & Resources

Our supportive services and resources provide information, education, and physical, emotional, social, mental, and spiritual care for people who are living with a neurological condition, as well as their loved ones and caregivers.

Stroke Education

The Joint Commission's Certificate of Distinction for Primary Stroke Centers recognizes the efforts of Torrance Memorial Medical Center’s Stroke Center to prevent strokes in our community as well as treat them.
