When something goes wrong with your nervous system, you want a doctor who can determine the cause of your problem and help you feel better. Highly trained neurologists at Sutter East Bay Medical Foundation (SEBMF) use advanced imaging techniques and the latest devices available to diagnose and treat disorders of the brain, spine or central nervous system.
Our multiple sclerosis (MS) program is nationally recognized as a center of excellence. Our interdisciplinary team-based care, combined with our knowledgebase, performance record and research studies, make us a focal point for MS care in the Bay Area. Each year we treat more than 1,000 people with MS, which accounts for 20 percent of all Sutter Health MS patients.
Across the network, Sutter Health affiliates are among the top hospitals in the nation for neurology and neurosurgery care, according to U.S. News & World Report. Our three Neuroscience Institutes are considered some of the most comprehensive neurological centers in the United States. SEBMF neurologists participate in medical trials for revolutionary technology such as the epilepsy pacer, which can minimize or prevent seizures. We’re also highly involved in clinical research on the treatment of multiple sclerosis and many other neurological disorders.
