Neurological care

Neurological care is the practice of medicine that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of conditions and diseases relating to the nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord, nerves, and muscles. Our LewisGale Physician team of neurologists, neurosurgeons, and other neurological team healthcare providers serve patients throughout Southwest Virginia.

Our healthcare providers work with other physicians and subspecialists to determine the most appropriate treatment option for patients’ individual needs, design a treatment plan that leverages the latest techniques and technologies, and then manage their condition by employing an approach that focuses on giving patients the best patient experience and healthcare outcome possible.
