We deal with a variety of different illnesses, diseases and conditions at Ormond Neuroscience.  Below, you will see a list of some of the conditions with which we are familiar and have experience.  Some obscure items have been deliberately left off the list, and we have probably forgotten to add others!  Even if your diagnosis does not appear, the odds are high that we can assist in some way or another, just so long as your condition relates to brain dysfunction.
