The mission of Lahey Hospital & Medical Center’s Department of Neurology is to provide the best possible care for patients with neurological disorders. We believe this mission is best accomplished by compassionate physicians with subspecialty interests, training and experience, who work in a culture where collaboration, education and clinical research are valued. Every department member has extensive clinical experience in the full spectrum of neurological disorders, as well as one or more subspecialty interests in which they maintain a particularly high level of expertise to benefit both their patients and their colleagues.

Multiple weekly conferences allow each neurologist to work collaboratively with others and to stay abreast of new developments in all aspects of neurology.

The Neurology Department is actively engaged in medical education and research.
