Neurosurgery

When a neurological illness strikes, it can be devastating.  The illness can take many forms, from a brain tumor to epilepsy, from the stroke of an aneurysm bleed to the dystonias of cerebral palsy and Parkinson’s disease.  Whatever its form, neurologic illnesses can be hard to diagnosis and difficult to treat. They may be chronic, acutely life threatening or fatal.

The advance of diagnostic capabilities has paralleled and often enabled treatment of neurological disorders previously considered untreatable. At Maimonides we use the most advanced technology, delivered with skill, compassion and concern.  Our mission is to deliver humanistic health care even in this most technologically sophisticated of fields, providing both state-of-the-art care and sanctuary.  We offer a multi-disciplinary center for the diagnosis and treatment of adults afflicted with neurological disorders.
