It is our Department’s vision to bring much needed sub-specialty services to the communities to whom we serve, while leveraging BWH for delivering the most complex care. It includes the brain and spinal cord. The UCI Health team of neurologists specializes in treatment of all disorders and conditions of the nervous system, including:
