About Us

The Houston Methodist Neurological Institute was founded to provide continuity of care from diagnosis to acute medical and surgical intervention through recovery and reintegration with family and community. Through the years, we have distinguished ourselves nationally and internationally as a Center of excellence, providing the highest level of clinical care.

Our physicians and medical team members are outstanding, our patient care is exceptional, and we are proud of our cutting-edge research and advanced clinical contributions to neurology, neurosurgery, neuro-intensive care, neuroradiology, neurorehabilitation, ophthalmology and psychiatry. We are also proud of our continuing affiliation with Weill Cornell Medical College, training the nation’s best and brightest future neurologists and neurosurgeons.

We remain committed to expanding translational research that increases our understanding of the toughest problems confronting our patients: the fight against stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, ALS, brain tumors, epilepsy, spine disorders and cerebrovascular disorders.
