Institute for Neurosciences

Doctor reassuring patient

The Institute for Neurosciences at NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital brings together a unique group of specialists and medical services to offer diagnosis and treatment of a broad range of neurological (nervous system) conditions, ranging from frequent headaches to syncope to multiple sclerosis.

The Institute's panel of physician specialists includes neurologists (doctors who study the brain and nervous system), neurosurgeons, psychiatrists, endocrinologists (doctors who study glands and hormones), radiologists (doctors who study and interpret tests of the body), radiation oncologists, physiatrists (doctors who specialize in rehabilitation), and specialists in geriatric (seniors) medicine. Psychologists and physical therapists may also be involved in patient care.
