Treating Epilepsy, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Cerebral Palsy, Alzheimer’s Disease, and more
Neurology is the branch of medicine that is concerned with the medical treatment of disorders of the nervous system. Our neurologists treat disorders of the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. As a specialist, the neurologist sees patients with a wide range of problems and may act as a patient’s consulting physician, while the family doctor or primary care physician is generally in charge of a patient’s total health care.
Conditions treated include:
- ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease)
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Balance disorders
- Cerebrovascular disease and stroke
- Dizziness and vertigo
- Epilepsy and seizures
- Headaches (including migraines)
- Memory concerns
- Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
- Myasthena Gravis
- Neuropathy and neuromuscular disorders
- Parkinson’s disease
- Sleep disorders
- Tremor and other movement disorders

David Moscinski tells how the “worst headache of his life” was discovered to actually be a brain hemorrhage, bleeding in the brain. It led to a long stay in the intensive neuromonitoring unit and hospital, undergoing a variety of tests to determine the cause. After months of not being able to walk, talk, chew, swallow or breath without assistance and a great recovery plan, David has returned to his job and is functioning without a problem.
Paul Hacker tells how Dr. Susan Hibbs and a new monthly drug infusion stopped his frequent Multiple Sclerosis (MS) flares and allowed him to walk normally and get back to work again.
Erdice Court discusses how she became concerned after falling every day and went to Neuroscience Group for answers. Dr. Susan Hibbs diagnosed her with mild cognitive impairment, treated with medication and regular monitoring so she can be aware if anything worsens, yet continue to live independently.
Jean Wegner of Appleton speaks out on the issues that her Parkinson’s Disease was causing her, including problems with mobility, falling down frequently and needing to use a walker. Instead of focusing on giving her more medications, Dr. Gizell Larson took a completely different approach and had Jean begin a research-based physical therapy program that has restored her flexibility and more importantly, has her walking without a walker. Jean is also in the BIG program offered at Neuroscience Group.
Carol Sandhofer’s coworker noticed her left pinky was tremoring. After visiting Dr. Lisa Kokontis at Neuroscience Group, Carol was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. She now participates in the LSVT BIG Program, a physical therapy program that improves the amplitude of her movements.
Dr. Lisa Kokontis, Neurologist with the Neuroscience Group, met with Diana Riske when she was having trouble using her hands and with her balance. After a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease, Diana has been working with Dr. Kokontis on her treatment plan.
Marlene Lehman came to Neuroscience Group with an already established diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis (MS). She was experiencing fatigue, weakness and difficulty with her memory. Dr. Susan Hibbs, Neurologist, helps Marlene with managing her MS, stabilizing the progression of the disease.
After battling with Parkinson’s Disease for a number of years, Oscar Hechel began experiencing stiffness, slowness and unwanted movements. When walking and balancing became more difficult, Oscar came to Dr. Lisa Kokontis, a neurologist at Neuroscience Group. She recommended deep brain stimulation to help with the symptoms that his medications weren’t taking care of. Following the procedure, Oscar is now able to do all the things he was previously unable to do.
