Our innovations in neurological care and research are making history.
From exploring the use of neuromodulation as a treatment for the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease, to helping a paralyzed man move his fingers and hand with his own thoughts, the research we are conducting is changing lives.
Ohio State is pioneering therapies and technology on every neurological front. We are a national leader in research and clinical applications of neuromodulation. We have one of the largest neuromuscular clinical and research programs in the country. And our neuro-oncology program has the largest brain tumor patient volumes in the region and leads the way in minimally invasive skull-base surgeries. In the last year, our neuroscience program treated more than 80,000 patients and performed more than 3,200 surgical procedures.
The OSU Wexner Medical Center has brought together five of our neuroscience-related departments into one comprehensive neuroscience program. This combines the talents of more than 170 faculty members in the departments of Neuroscience, Neurology, Neurosurgery, Psychiatry and Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation.
In addition to our world-class care and innovative therapies, we are leading the nation in research of neurological conditions. We are one of only five neuroscience centers in the country selected by the National Institutes of Health to participate in both the Neurological Emergencies Treatment Trials Network and NeuroNEXT: Network for Excellence in Neuroscience Clinical Trials.
