Neurological Conditions We Treat

Please use the links below to learn more about each of the neurological conditions we treat at Emory:

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease as it's commonly known, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease of the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that control voluntary muscle movement. Learn more >>

Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer's disease is a gradually progressive illness of the brain. Usually the earliest symptom is short-term memory loss. Learn more >>

Brain Injury

Emory's traumatic brain injury (TBI) program is an acute rehabilitation program specifically geared toward comprehensive treatment and care for patients who have sustained traumatic brain injury. Learn more >>

Brachial Plexus

Brachial plexus is a network of nerves that originate from the spinal cord and branch off to give rise to most of the nerves that control movement and sensation in the upper limbs. Learn more >>

Brain Tumors

A brain tumor is defined as any abnormal or uncontrolled growth of cells in the brain. Tumors can be either benign, meaning non-cancerous, or malignant, meaning they may be cancerous. Learn more >>

Carotid Artery Disease

Carotid stenosis is a narrowing or constriction of the inner surface (lumen) of the carotid artery. Learn more >>

Cerebral Aneurysm

A cerebral or brain aneurysm is a result of a weakness in the wall of a cerebral artery or vein causes a localized dilation or ballooning of the blood vessel. Learn more >>

Dizziness and Balance

Treatment for dizziness, vertigo, visual-vestibular problems, or imbalance as the result of vestibular (or inner ear), head injury, stroke, or other central nervous system impairment, aging, or other at-risk-to-fall problems. Learn more >>

Colloid Cyst

A colloid cyst is a cyst containing gelatinous material in the brain. It is almost always found just posterior to the foramen of Monro in the anterior aspect of the third ventricle, originating from the roof of the ventricle. Learn more >>

Dystonia

Dystonia is a neurological movement disorder characterized by involuntary muscle contraction leading to abnormal postures and twisting movements. Learn more >>

Epilepsy

Epilepsy is a neurological disorder that causes abnormal electrical activity in the brain resulting in recurrent seizures. It is estimated that over 40 million people in the world may suffer from epilepsy. Learn more >>

Essential Tremor

Essential tremor is one of the most common of neurological movement disorders affecting about 5% of the population over age 40. Learn more >>

Guillain-Barre Syndrome

Guillain-Barre syndrome is a disorder characterized by the body's immune system attacking its peripheral nervous system. Learn more >>

Huntington's disease

Huntington's disease is a hereditary progressive neurological disorder that affects approximately 300,000 people in the United States. Learn more >>

Multiple sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease that affects the brain and spinal cord. Learn more >>

Muscular Dystrophy

Muscular dystrophy (MD) refers to a group of hereditary muscle disorders in which muscles lose strength over time. Learn more >>

Myasthenia Gravis

Myasthenia gravis is characterized by weakness and rapid fatigue of any of the voluntary muscles, typically when the muscles are being used. Learn more >>

Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson's disease is a neurological movement or motor system disorder affecting approximately 1 million people in the United States. Learn more >>

Peripheral Neuropathy

When the peripheral nervous system is damaged, nerves are unable to communicate properly, which can result in symptoms such as pain, numbness or weakness. Learn more >>

Sleep Disorders

Emory offers comprehensive diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders. Learn more >>

Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal cord injuries treated by our program may result from a motor vehicle accident, fall, spinal stenosis or disease. Learn more >>

Spina Bifida

Spinal Bifida is a developmental birth defect caused by the incomplete closure of the embryonic neural tube. Learn more >>

Types of Stroke

Learn more >>

Tourette’s Syndrome

Tourette's syndrome is hereditary neurological and behavioral disorder commonly onset during childhood. Learn more >>

Transient Ischemic Attack

In a transient ischemic attack (TIA), blood supply to part of the brain is decreased for a short period of time leading to temporary dysfunction of the brain tissue in that area. Learn more >>

Vascular Malformation

Vascular Malformation (Arteriovenous malformation or AVM) is an abnormal connection between veins and arteries, usually congenital. Learn more >>
