About the Neurological Institute

Houston Methodist’s Neurological Institute is at the forefront of academic research, developing new clinical trials and protocols that inform international standards of neurological care. We train tomorrow’s neurologists and neurosurgeons in delivering the highest level of patient care. 

Our board-certified specialists are experts in their fields. We work across specialties to provide comprehensive care and treatment for even the most complex neurological conditions — and we train the world’s best and brightest neurologists and neurosurgeons in leading-edge treatment approaches.

We are a Neurology and Neurosurgery Center of Excellence and a nationally ranked Honor Roll hospital.
