Neurology at Emory University Hospital Midtown

The specialty of neurology encompasses a wide range of disorders that affect the body's nervous system.  These can manifest as something relatively harmless like dizziness or mild sleep disorders to life-threatening conditions such as a stroke.  The Emory University Hospital Midtown Neurologists provide the latest diagnostic and treatment innovations for the complete spectrum of neurological disorders.

The conditions Emory University Hospital Midtown neurologists treat include but are not limited to:

  • Cognitive and behavioral neurology, which includes conditions that alter reasoning, thinking and mental capabilities and behaviors.  These conditions include Alzheimer's disease and dementia.
  • Epilepsy:  This condition causes seizures, which are sudden events of altered brain function caused by electronic discharges of brain cells.   Seizures come in a variety of forms, and our neurologists plan treatment options based on each patient?s individual case.  This includes a variety of effective medications and a technique called vagus nerve stimulation, a device similar to a cardiac pacemaker designed to prevent an attack before it occurs.
  • Movement disorders, which include conditions such as Parkinson's disease and Huntington's disease.
  • Neuromuscular disorders, including conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome and more critical conditions such as muscular dystrophy and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) also known as Lou Gehrig's disease.
  • Sleep Disorders:  Our specialists diagnose and treat a variety of sleep disorders including sleep apnea and restless leg syndrome. 
  • Stroke:  Stroke is the third-leading cause of death.  Strokes can be caused by a rupture of a blood vessel, called a hemorrhagic stroke, or by a sudden loss of blood flow to the brain, called an ischemic stroke.  Immediate treatment of the symptoms of a stroke can help greatly reduce long-term disability and risk of death.
  • Dizziness and balance disorders such as vertigo:  Our neurologists will work with you and/or your primary care physician to design a treatment plan that will manage your condition with state-of-the-art care.
