What neurological conditions can be treated at the Marcus Neuroscience Institute?

The Institute provides state-of–the-art care in a vast array of neurological disorders including stroke, epilepsy, Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, peripheral neuropathy, myasthenia gravis and others. In essence, we can treat any neurological condition with the highest level of skill, expertise and experience.

What are your areas of expertise?

My areas of expertise include epilepsy, neuro-imaging, memory disorders and global health. I also find great satisfaction in diagnosing and treating complex neurological conditions.

What are other distinguishing characteristics of neurological care at the Institute?

In addition to being an AHCA Comprehensive Stroke Center, we recently earned certification as a Thrombectomy Capable Stroke Center. Only 31 hospitals in the United States have achieved this level of designation. It conveys that we meet rigorous standards in our proficiency to remove a blood clot from the brain during an ischemic stroke using minimally invasive procedures.
