When you or a loved one is diagnosed with a neurological condition, it can be a distressing experience. Our Guthrie Neurosciences team of neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists and nursing specialists provide the latest treatments for all types of neurological conditions.

A neurologist specializes in the diagnosis and management of diseases that affect the brain, spinal cord, and nerves.
You may see a neurologist for symptoms such as coordination problems, muscle weakness, confusion, dizziness or headaches. Changes in the senses like smell, touch or vision can be treated by a neurologist. A neurologist can also help with sleep disorders.
We also offer evaluation, consultation and medical management of neurological diseases.
Our neurosurgeons are trained in surgical treatment of disorders that affect the brain, spinal cord, nerves, and the system of blood vessels that circulates blood in the brain. Our nurses are specially trained in caring for patients with neurological disease or injury. Together with you and your loved ones, we can provide the right care options to meet your needs and help get you back to your life.
Our neurosurgeons and neurologists are part of a team from many different specialties who treat stroke patients. Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital is a Primary Stroke Center and Guthrie Corning Hospital is a New York designated Stroke Center.
