Cutting Edge Care for Neurological Disorders

Our mission is simple: treat all patients as if they are members of our own family.

The Drexel Neurosciences Institute, led by Dr. Erol Veznedaroglu, provides the most clinically advanced care for neurological conditions involving the brain and spine. We also invest heavily in active research and clinical trials to find the neuroscience cures and treatments of tomorrow.

The Institute combines an elite group of vascular neurosurgeons with expert neurologists and researchers to deliver the highest level of comprehensive care to patients. Our neurosurgeons perform conventional neurosurgery as well as minimally invasive endovascular neurosurgery while our neurologists and researchers pioneer treatments in neuro-health through advanced clinical trials.

This collaborative approach enables patients to receive an unrivaled level of neuroscience care available in a personal, comfortable and accessible environment traditionally not found at large academic medical centers.

The Drexel Neurosciences Institute specializes in the treatment of:

At the Drexel Neurosciences Institute, we treat patients with the latest medical therapies and diagnostic tools.

Because neurological disorders are complex, Drexel neurologists and neurosurgeons regularly draw upon the expertise of their respected colleagues at Drexel Medicine for:

Collaboration among Drexel doctors ensures that patients receive the care and support that they need in one convenient location.

The Drexel Neurosciences Institute is led by Dr. Erol Veznedaroglu, one of the most experienced cerebrovascular neurosurgeons in the country. Dr. Vez, as he is known, is one of a select number of neurosurgeons in the country trained in both traditional neurosurgical approaches as well as endovascular approaches, enabling his patients to have the full range of treatment options available to them under the direction of the same physician. His expertise includes the treatment of aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, stroke, chiari malformations and other potentially fatal conditions of the brain and cerebrovascular conditions.
