UTHealth Neurosciences-Neurology

Neurology Expertise

Along with treating general neurological challenges, physicians at the neurology clinic also welcome new lumbar puncture patients. Those clinics are held on Friday mornings from 8am-11am. The clinic is scheduled on Fridays to allow time for patients to recover over the weekend.

Why would a lumbar puncture be done:

  • Certain inflammatory conditions of the nervous system, such as multiple sclerosis and Guillain-Barre Syndrome
  • Help diagnose serious bacterial, fungal and viral infections, including meningitis, encephalitis and syphilis
  • Bleeding around the brain
  • Certain cancers involving the brain or spinal cord

To schedule an appointment, call the referral line at 832-325-7090.
