Diagnosing and treating the most complex brain, spinal and nerve tumors

Neurology and neurosurgery

At Geisinger, our board-certified neurologists and neurosurgeons take a team approach to developing the most effective treatment plan for each of our patients.

We have developed programs to care for patients with headache, transient ischemic attack, memory loss, stroke, nerve and muscle diseases, complex spine disorders, movement disorders, brain tumors and multiple sclerosis, among others.

Many of our programs include highly skilled professionals from other departments (disciplines), such as neuroradiology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, sleep medicine, pain management, orthopaedics, neuropsychology, ophthalmology, oncology and radiation therapy to ensure a truly multidisciplinary approach.

Our specialists offer inpatient and outpatient neurological care for adults and children as well as diagnostic testing and second opinions for complex cases.
