Every day at Penn, our neurosurgeons, neurologists, and psychiatrists work side-by-side to help patients break through the darkness of their disease. From fighting the isolation of Alzheimer’s, to finding new approaches to treat MS and epilepsy, to developing cutting-edge treatments for brain and spine disorders, the breakthroughs we’re making are lighting the way for our patients today.
