What is General Neurology?
General neurology refers to the diagnosis and treatment of all types of
neurological conditions, including:
- Alzheimer's disease and other dementias
- Brain and spinal cord injuries
- Brain tumors
- Dizziness and vertigo
- Epilepsy (seizures)
- Migraines and headaches
- Movement disorders
- Multiple sclerosis
- Neuromuscular disorders such as ALS and myasthenia gravis
- Parkinson's disease
- Peripheral nerve disorders
- Pituitary tumors
- Skull base tumors
- Spinal disorders
Our general neurologists can provide comprehensive care for a full range
of neurological conditions. However, if your neurological disorder requires
subspecialty management or surgical treatment, our general neurologists
will refer you to a neurologist or neurosurgeon who specializes in your
condition for further care.
Torrance Memorial’s affiliation with the neurology and neurosurgery
team at Cedars-Sinai - which is ranked among the best hospitals in the
nation for neurology and neurosurgery care by U.S. News and World Report
- means that our patients have access to some of the nation’s top
doctors, the most promising clinical trials, and the latest and best treatments.
In collaboration with Cedars-Sinai neurologists, Torrance Memorial’s
team of neurology experts will provide you with personalized care close
to home, including nonsurgical treatment, ongoing management, and follow-up care.
Your multidisciplinary team will include neurologists, psychiatrists, social
workers, and physical, occupational, behavioral, and speech therapists,
who will work together to deliver leading-edge treatment while caring
for your physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
Your team will meet to discuss your condition and develop a treatment plan
that addresses your needs. You will receive care at Torrance Memorial
from our dedicated team of neurology experts, eliminating your need to
travel far from home to access leading-edge treatments and therapies.
Research and Clinical Trials
When you choose Torrance Memorial for neurology care, you will have access
to the full spectrum of research and clinical trials available at Cedars-Sinai.
Cedars-Sinai’s clinical trials and research are aimed at improving
testing methods, treatments, quality of life, and recovery for people

Advanced Nonsurgical Treatment
Our general neurologists provide comprehensive treatment based on your
condition, symptoms, needs, and preferences. Treatment may include medications,
lifestyle changes, and other therapies to help you maintain the best possible
quality of life.
As part of our multidisciplinary approach to neurological care, our general
neurologists work closely with other medical specialists — including
your primary care physician, mental health professionals, social workers,
and physical, occupational, behavioral, and speech therapists —
to support your physical and mental well-being. If you require neurosurgery
or more advanced neurological care, our general neurologists will refer
you to one of our subspecialists or neurosurgeons for further treatment.
