About Us


UT Physicians Neurosciences is Houston’s leader in neuroscience care and the foremost neuroscience provider in the southern half of Texas. The group – a part of McGovern Medical School at UTHealth. and Mischer Neuroscience Institute – represents a citywide network of neurologists, neurosurgeons, neurointerventionalists, neuro-oncologists, interventional pain management specialists and advanced practitioners – all aiming to provide exceptional patient experiences and superior outcomes.

Leaders in Specialized Neuroscience Treatment

This comprehensive, integrated approach led to the creation of the Southwest’s leading epilepsy program, a highly ranked neurotrauma program, a cerebrovascular center where affiliated physicians treat more aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations than any other center in the region, an established pediatric neurosurgery program in collaboration with Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital and The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, an unmatched spinal neurosurgery and reconstructive peripheral nerve surgery program and a Brain Tumor Center where physicians diagnose and treat hundreds of new tumor patients each year. Providers at both UT Physicians Neurosciences and UT Physicians Neurology are also innovators in the treatment of multiple sclerosis, movement disorders, neurocognitive disorders, memory disorders and dementia, neuromuscular diseases, chronic pain and traumatic brain injury.
