Neurology

Innovative Treatments, Caring Physicians

WVU Medicine Neurology offers patients a full spectrum of innovative therapies for diseases of the brain, spinal cord, nerves and muscles, including stroke, epilepsy, neuromuscular diseases and movement disorders.

In addition to these comprehensive clinical initiatives, we have expanded our treatment programs in pediatric neurology, neuro-oncology, and headache.

Each year, approximately 1,000 adult patients are admitted through our inpatient neurology service. Specialists in our outpatient neurology clinics see more than 23,000 patients each year. Our board-certified physicians are sought-after consultants, providing about 1,600 neurology consultations annually.

Our staff is committed to providing the most up-to-date, comprehensive treatment. From the moment patients contact us, we make every effort to assess, diagnose, and provide the most advanced medical care available in the region.

Conditions We Treat

Neuroimmunology and Multiple Sclerosis

The Woven Endobridge device (WEB) is a groundbreaking advance in the development of technology for the treatment of ruptured and unruptured brain aneurysms. The WVU Stroke Center was among the first in the country to use this device in clinical trials, now available to the rest of the U.S. Ansaar Rai, MD, and SoHyun Boo, MD, explain how the WEB device is making the delicate treatment of aneurysms less risky.

Research drives patient care at any large academic medical center. As stroke treatment has dramatically evolved in the past decade, WVU Medicine’s neurointerventionists have emerged as national leaders in their relatively new field. Here, Ansaar Rai, MD, WVU Medicine Radiology vice chair of clinical operations, discusses the past and present of stroke treatment.

Thanks to the quick action of the WVU Stroke Center, Hanna made an impressive comeback.
