    The Department of Neurology provides diagnostic evaluation and treatment of complex neurological and neuromuscular diseases related to the central and peripheral nervous systems (brain, spinal cord and all extremities) such as Alzheimer’s Disease and other memory disorders, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders, multiple sclerosis, ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), brain tumors, stroke, and headache. As part of the multidisciplinary team at the Kentucky Neuroscience Institute, our neurology specialists work directly with neurosurgeons for those patients requiring surgical interventions.
