About Memphis Neurology
Memphis Neurology is a multipractitioner group unique in the Mid-South in that patients are cared for from infancy through adulthood. The practice opened in the early 1970’s as Pediatric Neurology at LeBonheur Hospital on Adams Avenue where periodically over the ensuing decades was the only pediatric neurology provider in the tri-state area.
Pediatric Neurology was the first practice in the area to provide care in the outlying communities, opening satellite offices in Paragould, West Memphis, Tupelo and Jackson, Tennessee, as far back as the mid-70’s. Prior to that Dr. J.T. Jabbour and Dr. Robert M. Boehm two of the founding partners, traveled as far as the tri-city area of East Tennessee (Johnson City, Bristol and Kingsport), Greenville and New Albany, MS to treat children in need of neurologic care.
Our main office is now located at 7645 Wolf River Circle in Germantown, with a additional offices in Southaven, Midtown Memphis and Convington TN.
As in the past children are still treated for conditions such as headaches, seizures, developmental delay, autism, learning disorders, and attention deficit. In the past decade an adult division has been added to the practice treating those suffering from dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, strokes, seizures, and migraine headaches.
The practice is equipped with a neurodiagnostic lab that offers services benefiting both patients and other healthcare professionals. EEG’s are performed at most locations and EEG video monitoring is provided at the Germantown office with plans to open additional EMU rooms at the Southaven office in late 2009. Botox injections for muscle spasticity and cervical dystonia are available at the Germantown location. For patients with seizures that are difficult to control through medication alone, the option of a vagal nerve stimulator, placed by a surgeon, is available. The physicians at Memphis Neurology then monitor and adjust the VNS as necessary as part of an overall comprehensive seizure monitoring and care program.
Drs. Jabbour, Eastmead, Lynn and Natarajan and Nurse Practitioner Laura Porch provide pediatric patient care at all locations. To assure continuity of care, Drs. Natarajan, Sonone and NP Porch see adult patients at the Germantown and Southaven offices as well as the Tupelo and Brighton satellites. With multiple offices and a wide array of patient care services Memphis Neurology strives to provide both convenient and comprehensive neurologic care for patients of all ages.
