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, neuropsychologists 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.
