Treatments

The most common treatment for many neurological diseases is medication. Our neurologists have a broad knowledge of medications that are currently available on the market as well as investigational drug therapies that are on the horizon.

Surgery may be an option for some patients. We collaborate with some of the most highly skilled neurosurgeons in the region and will make referrals based on your unique situation whenever we determine that would be the best option for you.
