• For patients

  • As part of the multidisciplinary team at the Kentucky Neuroscience Institute, our neurology specialists now work with neurosurgeons to diagnose and treat complex neurological and neuromuscular diseases such as Parkinson's disease, ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease) and stroke.

    We provide diagnostic evaluation, treatment and management for conditions related to the central and peripheral nervous systems (brain, spine and all extremities).

  • The day of your appointment

    Please arrive at least 20 minutes before your appointment in order to register and fill out any of the necessary paperwork prior to your appointment. This will assist in ensuring prompt service and visitation with your physician.

    Patient referral

    When a patient is referred to Kentucky Neuroscience Institute (KNI), diagnosis and treatment are made in a collaborative environment, decreasing the need for multiple visits and consultations.

    An emphasis on quality of life factors such as ease of movement and communication maximizes the potential for recovery. Treated as equal partners in care, referring physicians can expect early and ongoing contact with KNI specialists.

  • Research

    Current clinical trials

    The Kentucky Neuroscience Institute is discovering new and advanced ways to bring findings from the researcher's lab to the patient's bedside through clinical trials. By combining the expertise of researchers and physicians, we offer the most advanced treatments.

    We are constantly adding new studies, closing studies and changing current studies. To ensure you receive the most accurate information possible, please contact your provider for information about clinical trials.
