What is Neurology?
Neurology is the medical specialty that studies, diagnoses, and treats nervous system disorders that affect the brain, spinal cord, nerves, and other neurological elements such as eyes, ears, skin, and other sensory receptors.
Neurologists specialize in the diagnosis, treatment and management of conditions and disease involving the nervous systems. In critical cases, our patients of neurological care would receive the highest priority through a smooth and seamless referral process between our neurologists and neurosurgeons.
Among the most common conditions treated by neurologists include:
A stroke happens when blood flow to the brain is interrupted, resulting in brain damage. Neurologists play an important role in stroke diagnosis and treatment, as well as in helping patients recover and avoid future strokes.
MS is a chronic disease that impacts the central nervous system, resulting in a variety of symptoms. Neurologists can assist in the diagnosis of MS as well as the development of treatment plans to manage symptoms and slow the progression of the disease.
Migraines or other headaches:
Migraines and other types of headaches can be diagnosed and managed by neurologists using medications, lifestyle changes, and other therapies.
Epilepsy or seizures:
Epilepsy is a neurological condition that results in seizures. Neurologists can use medications and other therapies to diagnose and treat epilepsy.
Parkinson's disease is a neurological disease that leads to issues with motion, balance, and coordination. Neurologists can use medication, physical therapy, and other treatments to assist diagnose and manage the symptoms of Parkinson's disease.
Alzheimer's disease is a progressive neurological condition that impairs cognitive abilities and memory. Neurologists can assist in the diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease as well as offer support and guidance to patients and their families.
Neuropathy is a disorder that triggers numbness, tingling, and other symptoms by affecting the peripheral nerves. Neurologists can use medications and other therapies to assist in managing and diagnosing neuropathy.
