New Sieg Neuroscience Center to open in September

Mount Nittany Health will open The Sieg Neuroscience Center at 2121 Old Gatesburg Road in State College to expand the physical presence of outpatient neurology services on September 24.

The Sieg Neuroscience Center offers a combination of diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation for conditions affecting the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nervous system, including sleep disorders.

Patients who experience chronic headaches or migraines, memory loss, muscle weakness, seizures, or have experienced a head injury, could be referred to a neurologist.

Mount Nittany Physician Group's board-certified neurologists diagnose and treat a variety of conditions of the brain, spinal cord, and nervous system, including Parkinson's Disease, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, muscular dystrophy, CMT, and more.

The sleep medicine experts at the Sieg Neuroscience Center locate the cause of common, and not so common sleep disorders, ranging from narcolepsy and daytime drowsiness to restless leg syndrome and sleep apnea. Using a holistic approach, the sleep specialists work with the patient to treat sleep disorders and get people back to sleeping well.

Bellefonte residents and local philanthropists, Philip H. and Judith O. Sieg, provided the principal funding for the Sieg Neuroscience Center. Mr. Sieg is a member of the board of directors of The Foundation for Mount Nittany Medical Center.

According to Pete Roy, MD, neurologist and Mount Nittany Physician Group Board Chairman, "This free-standing, spacious neuroscience center will provide us with the opportunity to invite neurologic sub-specialists - such as epileptologists or movement disorder specialists - to perform regular clinics at this new site, and will also give collaborating physician practice groups an opportunity to share outstanding resources. We are deeply grateful to the Siegs for this exciting advancement for our patients."
