About the Department

The Neurology Department at the University of New Mexico plays a critical role in the health of the state. The faculty has expertise in all of the major subspecialty areas in Neurology, including multiple sclerosis, stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, vascular cognitive impairment, epilepsy, movement disorders, neuromuscular diseases, neuroinfectious diseases, pain and neurological disorders of children. In many of those areas, faculty at the Health Sciences Center represents the only resource in the state for subspecialty-trained experts.

The Department has major research funding for stroke, multiple sclerosis, vascular cognitive impairment, epilepsy, and Alzheimer’s disease. These research programs involve scientists in both the clinical and basic sciences. We are able to offer patients experimental treatments for many conditions. We have advanced neuroimaging in computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), angiography, and magnetoencephalography (MEG) for patient care and research studies.

Faculty in Neurology work closely with our colleagues in Neurosurgery to provide state-of-the-art care for patients with surgically treatable conditions such as aneurysms, vascular malformations, hemorrhages, epilepsy surgery, deep brain stimulation for Parkinson’s disease, and pain management.
