About Us

Whether you’re dealing with unexplained symptoms that won’t improve, or treatments that don’t seem to work, your visit to Mount Sinai Neurology is your first step toward getting your life back. We are home to a network of specialized programs and centers, each providing complete care for a specific condition, including stroke, epilepsy, headache, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, brain and spinal tumors, neuromuscular disease.

The physicians providing this care are among the best in their field, drawing on state-of-the-art research and clinical trials conducted at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai to offer our patients the very newest diagnostics and treatment options. These specialists work with a highly skilled team of Mount Sinai experts—including neurologists, psychiatrists, neuropsychologists, and neuroscientists—who recognize that each patient is different, and work together to design the right treatment plan for your personal needs.

Neurosurgery and Neurology at Mount Sinai rank 16th in the nation for neurological surgery, according to the 2017-2018 “Best Hospitals” issue of U.S. News & World Report, an honor that follows a long, distinguished history of achievements in patient care. Our inpatient neurology service opened in 1900 under the direction of Bernard Sachs, MD—known for first describing Tay-Sachs disease—who was succeeded by a number of Mount Sinai physicians who advanced the field of neurology with breakthrough observations and insights.

We are committed to putting this synthesis of experience, advanced research, and scientific resources to work for you. Being a Mount Sinai patient means having access to this highest level of expertise, compassion, and science. Our goal is to improve the lives of patients living with neurological conditions today, and to develop new and better therapies for the future.
