The Department of Neurology at Upstate Medical University has a three-part mission: to provide state of the art care, education and research.

The Neurology team at SUNY Upstate Medical University is dedicated to providing state of the art neurological care to the Central New York community and region. Our regional focus covers over 20 counties spanning New York State from the Canadian border to the Pennsylvania state line. 

The Neurology Department faculty serve the educational needs of graduate students, medical students, residents in neurology and other fields plus fellows in various aspects of basic and clinical neuroscience.  Our physicians and staff routinely work with patients to educate and inform them about treatment options and matters related to their health and well-being.

Our research team is engaged in basic, clinical and translational research in Neuroscience with the goals of furthering the understanding of neurological diseases and developing new treatments that will improve the lives of our patients. We perform cutting edge research both in basic science laboratories and the clinical research unit.

Our Infusion Center is dedicated to the treatment of Multiple Sclerosis, neuromuscular disorders and headaches. Our Board certified Stroke physicians participate in the Telemedicine program which has provided increased access to stoke/trauma care in rural areas and communities in the Central New York Region. Using secure videoconferencing, the physicians have instant access to the Emergency Departments of partnering regional hospitals. Patient services are also offered at the Neuromuscular Clinic, the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit and the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Research and Treatment Center at Upstate Health Care Center.

Learn about our physicians, inpatient services, ambulatory services, specialty services and collaborative clinics. Upstate Neurology provides tertiary care for a wide variety of neurological conditions, receiving referrals from throughout Central New York, Pennsylvania and Canada.
