Neuroimmunology Overview

People with neurological disorders caused by inflammation or autoimmunity find the care they need with the experts of Mayo Clinic's Division of Neuroimmunology. Doctors with specialty training in neuroimmunology (neuroimmunologists) have extensive experience in diagnosing and treating adults and children with even the most complex or rarest of these conditions.

Your care team

Your neuroimmunologist brings together a multispecialty team that might include experts in ophthalmology, chest (thoracic) surgery, physical medicine and rehabilitation, and other specialties. This team listens to you and works to ensure you get exactly the care you need.

People with neurological disorders caused by inflammation or autoimmunity benefit from this team-based approach, tailored to their needs, as symptoms can affect multiple body systems and cause weakness, walking problems, and difficulty with speaking, swallowing or chewing. Our caring team can help you with all your health concerns.
