Cutting-Edge Research

Our research program contributes to groundbreaking discoveries in neurology. We have major research funding for stroke, multiple sclerosis, vascular cognitive impairment, epilepsy and Alzheimer’s disease. These research programs involve both the clinical and basic sciences.

Exceptional Patient Care

Our advanced neuroimaging in computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), angiography and magnetoencephalography (MEG) allow the best care and research studies.

Faculty in Neurology work closely with our colleagues in neurosurgery to provide state-of-the-art care for patients with surgically treatable conditions such as aneurysms, vascular malformations, hemorrhages, epilepsy surgery, deep brain stimulation for Parkinson’s disease, and pain management. We are able to offer patients experimental treatments for many conditions.
