The unit is one of the largest and most sophisticated in the United States.
What Patients Should Expect
Washington University neurologists offer you comprehensive specialty services available at few centers in the nation. Our physicians include a number of regional and national experts in a department nationally recognized as a leader in advancing the noninvasive treatment for neurological problems.
Patients can be self-referred or referred by their physicians. After making an appointment, a patient history questionnaire will be mailed to you, to be completed prior to your visit. Please fill this out and bring it to your first appointment along with records of examinations, treatments and X-rays you have had.
New Frontiers in Neurology
All faculty are actively engaged in research, ranging from an investigation of cognitive processes in children with cerebral palsy to a host of clinical trials seeking new treatments for a variety of neurological disorders. This commitment to research aids the delivery of new, more effective methods of diagnosing and treating neurologic disorders.
Patients interested in participating in clinical research should work with their physicians to determine which studies might benefit them the most. Studies can be found on the Center for Clinical Studies web pages.
We treat many patients from outside the region and outside United States. For North American referrals, physicians may call the Barnes-Jewish Hospital Doctors Access Line at (800) 252-DOCS (3627).
Patients in the continental United States may refer to Family and Guest Services for assistance with lodging.
Physicians and patients from countries outside of the United States may view a complete list of our Centers of Excellence available for International Healthcare Referrals or physicians may contact us by email, with a short summary of the patient's diagnosis and your initial treatment plan. We will forward this summary to the right department for review and follow-up. Although English is preferred, you may email in your own language.
