Neuroscience Institute


Neurological disorders have severe consequences on the quality of life and healthcare costs for the millions of Americans who are affected by them. The neurologists at our Neuroscience Institute lead the way in combating these diseases through scientific study of the structure, functions and abnormalities of the human nervous system. Our staff also works with medical students and residents to assure that this knowledge is passed along to future doctors.

The Neuroscience Institute takes part in clinical, research and educational activities in these specialty areas:

  • Cerebrovascular disease and stroke
  • Epilepsy
  • Movement disorders
  • Botulinum toxin treatment
  • Neuro-oncology (brain tumors)
  • Neuromuscular treatment services
  • Multiple sclerosis and neuro-immunology
  • Neuropsychology

We are at the forefront of research and treatment to control epileptic seizures, tremors and movement disorders. We evaluate therapies to combat nerve damage due to stroke. To provide an accurate diagnosis and a comprehensive program of care, our neurologists consult with specialists in neuro-otology, neuroradiology, neuropathology, neuro-ophthalmology, neuro-endocrinology and neurological critical care. All of our physicians work together to help patients and their families understand these diseases and their treatment options.
