Dr. Vernon Rowe has dedicated his career to finding the root causes of neurologic disorders. In the process, he has explored the amazing complexity of the most complex system in the human body, the nervous system, and has discovered that many of the most common problems in neurology, like headache, hypermobility, sleep problems, neck pain, and back pain are all interrelated. That really shouldn’t be a surprise, because we as human beings have a single body, and everything we do, and all parts of that body, are interconnected.
Dr. Rowe believes most specialists over-compartmentalize people, force them into pigeonholes, and tend to treat everybody in those pigeonholes as if they were alike. He believes in today’s offices, most doctors just reach for the script pad or recommend the latest and greatest surgical procedure. As you spend time with Dr. Rowe on this site, he’ll show you why this is true.
Dr. Rowe believes each person must be her own best advocate, and arm herself with reliable knowledge. Only in this way can she avoid unnecessary surgery or useless pills. Every person must empower herself, so she can help heal herself and her family.
He is an advocate for independent doctors, who are not hamstrung by hospital systems, insurance companies, or drug companies. Many years ago, he established his own independent practice, the Rowe Neurology Institute, in Kansas. Staffed with a team of 12 neurologists and other caregivers researchers working side by side, Dr. Rowe established a cross-disciplinary approach to treating neurologic disorders. He showed that headaches, migraines, sleep disorders, MS, back pain & neck pain are often interrelated.
His compassion for people drives him to share with you all that he has learned over those decades.
He is certified in neurology, sleep medicine, electro-myography, electroencephalography, and neuro-MRI.
Professional affiliations: American Medical Association, the American Academy of Neurology, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, the American Board of Electrodiagnostic Medicine, and the American Society for Neuroimaging.
Dr. Rowe is licensed in California, Missouri, Kansas, and North Carolina.
He has many other skills and interests apart from neurology. He is a sailor and small plane pilot, and for many years he flew planes and helicopters to rural towns in Missouri and Kansas to hold neurology clinics. He is also an accomplished bluegrass musician, songwriter and a published writer of short stories and poetry.
