John Muir Health is a leader in the diagnosis and treatment of brain and spine disorders.
Our multi-specialty staff is a highly trained, organized, and collaborative group. John Muir Health's multidisciplinary approach serves the medical, surgical and rehabilitation needs of patients with neurological diseases and injuries. The neurosciences staff includes neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, rehabilitation medicine physicians, neuropsychologists, nurses and allied health professionals who are dedicated to a program of care that meets the specific needs of each individual patient.
You and your family will get to know your doctors, and the staff will take the time to answer your questions and address your concerns. We practice within a model known as "privademics," which is the safe and effective practice of academic medicine within a community setting.
We offer the most advanced techniques and technology to diagnose and treat neurological disorders of the brain and spine. The comprehensive programs available at John Muir Health include treatment for cerebrovascular diseases (e.g. stroke, aneurysms), brain and spinal cord tumors, dementia (e.g. Alzheimer's), spine diseases, and neurological disorders.
