The Department of Neurology at Montefiore

Established in 1961, The Department of Neurology at Montefiore Medical Center is one of the largest and most innovative in the world. Our mission is to combat each type of neurological disease through state-of-the-art treatments and therapies, technological advancements, and groundbreaking research. It is estimated that one in five Americans suffer from a neurological disease. We believe this statistic can improve dramatically, not with pharmacological agents alone, but in conjunction with early diagnosis and appropriate treatments. Our Department of Neurology distinguishes itself through the belief in the continuity of the lifespan, tracking and treating any and all neurological diseases from birth through the final era of life.

Your generous support ensures that adequate funding is available to take advantage of current healthcare breakthroughs and the rapid changes taking place in medicine today.
