Our Neurosciences Team

Our team of neurologists and neurosurgeons creates the most comprehensive neurosciences team in central Missouri. Our neurologists are not only trained in all facets of neurology, they have each selected a specific neurological condition on which to focus their expertise. This means when you see any of our neurologists, they have undergone additional training and research for your specific condition. Our neurosurgeons understand that the brain and spine are very delicate and are very methodical in their treatment.

The combination of experts in each field along with our skilled surgeons provides world-class neurological care.
