Understanding and treating neurological disorders

Welcome to the Department of Neurology and Neurological Sciences at Stanford.

The Department has been a center of excellence for more than four decades and includes over 130 School of Medicine faculty members with primary academic appointments in the department and four outstanding teaching hospitals and health care systems. These include Stanford Health Care System with its new adult hospital opening in 2019 and with clinics located throughout Northern California and the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, with its new hospital having opened in 2018 and with clinics situated throughout Northern California. The Palo Alto VA is a top-tier modern, comprehensive veteran’s hospital which hosts many national academic clinical and research programs. Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, our county hospital, is the second highest volume hospital in California, serving a diverse spectrum of patients with a vast array of neurologic disorders. The ongoing population growth in Northern California and the Bay Area along with the technology and economic leadership of Silicon Valley continue to support the robust development of our health care systems and have assured our status as one of the highest volume clinical neurology programs in the country. With over 60,000 patient visits during the past fiscal year, Stanford Neurology provides care for a large and highly diverse patient population and supports excellence in clinical care, education, and research.
