Welcome to Brain & Spine

The Brain & Spine Institute is made up of experts in the field of neuroscience. We bring patients the best health care in East Tennessee for a full range of neurological diseases and disorders, including treating the most complex stroke cases. Brain and spine diseases and conditions are interrelated, as together they form the central nervous system. One often affects the other. Combining brain and spine services offers the patient total treatment with specialists and sub-specialists working together for patient coordination and care.
