Our brains represent one of the last great frontiers of humankind; understanding them is a challenge that will pave the way for as-yet-unimagined possibilities. Inspired by such possibilities, doctors and researchers who study the brain and the nervous system discover new wonders every day about how humankind thinks and operates. At the forefront of these discoveries are the neurosurgeons and neuroscientists at MedStar Health who specialize in evaluating, diagnosing, and treating both common and rare neurological conditions and diseases.
