Providence Department of Neurology

Neurologists are physicians who diagnose and treat disorders of the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nervous system. While neurologists do not perform surgery, they can advise in cases where it might be needed, and can also make referrals to qualified neurosurgeons.

Some neurologists have comprehensive knowledge across many neurological conditions, while others focus on specific conditions and receive extensive training in those areas. At the Providence Brain and Spine Institute, we combine both types of providers to best meet each patient’s needs. Many of our providers are fellowship-trained in subspecialty areas, and our Stroke Center, Multiple Sclerosis Center, Epilepsy Center, and ALS Center have all received national and international recognition for quality care.

Neurologists also act as consultants to other providers and as partners in care for our patients and families. We offer support groups, patient education, and many other resources to improve quality of life for those we serve. And our Institute invests in the future of neuroscience by actively engaging in research and clinical trials, as well as offering training to medical students and residents. Neurologists at Providence Brain and Spine Institute are committed to helping patients get back to what’s possible.
