Medical Professionals & Postgraduates

The departments of Neurology and Neurosurgery accept patient referrals and offer a number of graduate and continuing medical education opportunities. If you're looking for information on referrals, Grand Rounds, research, conferences, the weekly Tumor Board or medical education at Cedars-Sinai, you'll find those resources here.

Referrals

If you have a patient who could benefit from the expertise of Cedars-Sinai's neurology and neurosurgery specialists—or might need care for cancer, spine disorders or other related conditions—call our physician-to-physician consultation line at 310-423-6472, or send us a message.


Tumor Board

The Neurology and Neurosurgery departments work with you to determine the best course of treatment for your patient, and keep you apprised of their status. In many cases, patients are referred back to their primary care physician for continued management, while neurology and neurosurgery specialists at Cedars-Sinai remain available for consultation.

The Department of Neurosurgery also holds a weekly Tumor Board to review patient cases and recommend the best course of treatment. Neurosurgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, neurologists, neuroradiologists, pediatric oncologists, neuro-oncologists and neuropathologists all participate in this joint effort. The meeting is open to any doctor who wants to present a case for discussion.

Clinical Trials & Research

The doctors and research scientists at Cedars-Sinai are deeply committed to bringing new discoveries and potential treatments to the medical community. Learn about ongoing neurology and neurosurgery clinical trials and research studies.

Grand Rounds & Conferences
Grand Rounds

Cedars-Sinai Neurosciences Grand Rounds offer practical insights into the treatment of complex neurological conditions. Presented by noted multidisciplinary faculty and visiting professors, the courses are geared to practicing neurologists, neurosurgeons, primary care physicians and other medical professionals who manage and diagnose neurological disorders.

Held on the third and fourth Fridays of each month, topics may range from pediatric head trauma management to brain mapping and use of functional MRI techniques.

Cedars-Sinai designates this educational activity for a maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. Physicians should only claim credit based on their participation in the activity.
