Neurology

The Neurology Department provides a clinical and diagnostic service for assessment and management of patients with disorders of brain, spinal cord, nerve and muscle. Our inpatient service includes a dedicated four bed acute stroke unit and multidisciplinary team of nurses and allied health professionals. A full range of neurological subspecialties is represented within the department. A conjoint meeting with the Departments of Neuroradiology and Neurosurgery serves as a medium to facilitate diagnosis and management. All neurologists have affiliations with the Universities of New South Wales, Notre Dame and/or Sydney. All neurologists are involved in the training of an Australian St Vincent’s Private Hospital / Campus Advanced Neurology trainee by virtue of a Federal Government grant.
