Our Goals & Services

The goal of the physicians at Tallahassee Neurological Clinic has always been to provide excellence in neurosurgical and neurological care to patients in Tallahassee and the surrounding communities. Working closely with Tallahassee Memorial Hospital has made it possible for TNC to achieve this goal. The hospital owns, operates, and maintains the very latest surgical equipment, including microsurgical instrumentation, lasers, ultrasonic aspirators, and a dedicated linear accelerator for use in stereotactic radiosurgery. TMH also provides dedicated state-of-the-art neurosurgical operating rooms and dedicated neurosurgery operating room personnel. The presence of fellowship-trained neuro-anesthesiologists allows for intra-operative monitoring and superior overall peri-operative care. TNC physicians also work very closely with their neuro-radiology colleagues. In an effort to ensure our high quality of service across all of our specialties, we incorporated a quality assurance program in 2007.

The neurological services provided by the physicians at TNC include complete neurological evaluation and treatment, Independent Medical Exams (IMEs), EMG/nerve conduction velocity studies, EEG (including 24-hour EEG) services, therapeutic BOTOX® injections, and clinical research studies. The clinic treats many conditions, such as those listed below. While this is not an all-inclusive list, it does include some of the most common conditions:

  • Peripheral nerve injuries or compression, resulting in pain, numbness, weakness, and/or wasting of the muscles in the face, arm, hand, and/or leg. For example, conditions such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome are common when the nerve crossing the wrist is compressed or entrapped.
  • Neurovascular disorders such as stroke, brain hemorrhage, and traumatic or non-traumatic blood clots affecting the brain or spinal cord.
  • Brain disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, hydrocephalus, or malformations involving the brain from birth.
  • Tumors involving the brain, spinal cord, nerves, skull, or the spine. These include primary growth from the local tissues or a metastatic spread from a cancer in another part of the body.
  • Infections involving the brain and spinal cord, the fluid surrounding these structures, or the spinal vertebra and discs.
  • Traumatic injuries to the brain, spinal cord, bones of the spine, nerves, and skull.
