    Conditions We Treat

     We treat a wide range of neurological conditions including:

    Aneurysm

    An aneurysm is a bulge or ballooning in an artery wall. There are often no symptoms until an artery ruptures, which can cause internal bleeding, stroke, or even death.

    ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease)

    Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, is a nervous system disease that weakens muscles and impairs physical function.

    Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia

    Dementia refers to a group of conditions characterized by memory loss and impaired daily functioning. One of the most common of these conditions is Alzheimer’s disease.

    Bell's Palsy

    Bell's palsy is a sudden episode of facial paralysis, typically occurring on one side of the face. Bell's palsy itself is not generally treated directly, but your doctor may recommend steps to alleviate symptoms during the time it takes to resolve. Learn more.

    Brain and Spinal Cord Tumors

    Brain and spinal cord tumors can be life-threatening depending on the location, size, and rate of growth.

    Degenerative Disk Disease

    Degenerative disk disease, or DDD, is a condition in which a damaged spinal disc causes pain. People with DDD may experience pain in their legs, thighs, buttocks, lower back, or neck. Learn more.

    Epilepsy

    Epilepsy is a nervous system disorder commonly known to cause seizures. NGPG offers a variety of treatment options to manage epileptic symptoms, including therapy, medication, and neurosurgery. Learn more.

    Guillain-Barré Syndrome

    Guillain-Barré syndrome is a condition in which the immune system attacks the peripheral nerves. Potential treatment options include blood transfusions and physical therapy.

    Huntington's Disease

    Unlike some other neurological disorders, Huntington’s disease has a strong genetic component, which can help you understand and manage your symptoms sooner.

    Migraine

    Migraine headaches are recurring, moderate-to-severely painful headaches that are typically felt on only one side of the head and worsen with physical activity. They are very common and can be alleviated with medication. Learn more.

    Movement Disorders

    Movement disorders are conditions that cause abnormal increased movements either voluntarily or involuntarily. Common movement disorders include essential tremor, dystonia, and Parkinson’s disease.

    Multiple Sclerosis

    Multiple sclerosis, or MS, is a disease in which the immune system eats away at the protective covering of nerves. MS can cause vision loss, pain, fatigue, and impaired coordination, though symptoms and their severity vary from person to person.

    Myasthenia Gravis

    Myasthenia gravis is a chronic autoimmune disorder that affects the voluntary movement of muscles that control the eyes, mouth, throat, and limbs.

    Neuropathy

    Neuropathy is a condition in which one or more nerves are damaged, causing tingling, numbness, or weakness in the affected area. Most neuropathies begin in the hands or feet but can affect any part of the body. Learn more.

    Sleep Disorders

    Sleep disorders disrupt regular sleep patterns and can negatively impact your physical health, mental health, relationships, school, and work. Common sleep disorders include insomnia, narcolepsy, and sleep apnea.

    Stroke

    Stroke is a disease that can cause brain damage and even death. Common symptoms of the onset of a stroke include facial drooping, arm weakness, and speech difficulty.

    Trigeminal Neuralgia

    Trigeminal neuralgia is a chronic pain condition characterized by episodes of severe pain on one side of the face, or less frequently, by continuous, aching facial pain. Treatment may include medication or surgical intervention. Learn more.

    Vertigo

    Vertigo refers to a spinning sensation that occurs from moving your head too quickly. Though not a condition itself, vertigo may be a symptom of an underlying disease or the side effect of your medication. Learn more.

    Treatments We Offer

    Neurointerventional Surgery

    Neurointerventional surgery is a subspecialty focused on the diagnosis and management of vascular diseases and conditions of the head, neck, and spine. It can treat many conditions that were historically untreatable or required more complex or invasive surgery. Learn more.

    Neuropsychology

    NGPG provides neuropsychological assessments for adult, adolescent, and geriatric patients. These assessments allow our doctors to understand, diagnose, and treat conditions like dementia, stroke, and traumatic brain injury. Learn more.
