Neurological Experts Collaborate for Optimal Care
At UH, our neurology and neurosurgery team is focused on patient-centered care. Our highly specialized experts in neurology care work together, along with the patient’s primary care doctor, to achieve the best possible outcomes. Our team includes:

Advancing Neuroscience Medicine Through Research
UH Neurological Institute is home to a thriving research program that is committed to quickly turning ground-breaking discoveries into better patient care. For example, we are the only U.S. hospital offering multiple hippocampal transection as a surgical solution to eliminate seizures and effectively cure epilepsy. Also, we were the first in the world to test diaphragm pacing stimulation. This technique can slow the rate of breathing failure in patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or Lou Gehrig’s disease.
