Physicians and Staff

The Johns Hopkins team members are leaders in the field of diagnosing and treating Rasmussen Syndrome.

Our center receives requests for consultation about Rasmussen syndrome from around the world. Our team is comprised of neurologists (including neuroimmunologists), neurosurgeons, and neuropathologists familiar with Rasmussen syndrome and the other conditions that mimic it. Our partners have extensive experience with rehabilitation and neuropsychology services (the latter specially tailored for patient education settings) prior to and after surgery.
