Neurology is a medical specialty dealing with disorders of the nervous system; including the diagnosis and treatment of all categories of disease involving the central, peripheral, and autonomic nervous systems, including their coverings, blood vessels, and all effector tissue, such as muscle.
The brain makes us who we are, largely defining our uniqueness as individuals and as a species. For this reason diseases that attack the nervous system – whether suddenly as in stroke, insidiously as in Alzheimer’s disease, or with recurrent attacks as may occur in multiple sclerosis – strike at the core of our being. Imagine being unable to speak, being unable to move your limbs at will, or experiencing difficulty recognizing common surroundings or close relatives.
A neurologist is a physician that specializes in neurology. They are trained to investigate, diagnose and treat neurological disorders. Neurologists often involved in forefront of clinical research and clinical trials. Even though neurology is a non-surgical specialty, it is closely related to the new field of neurosurgery.
Neurological disorders can affect the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord), the peripheral nervous system, or the autonomic nervous system.
Neurology is often confused with neuroscience. Neuroscience is the scientific study of the nervous system where neurology is a branch of medicine. Thanks to the work done by neurologist, a large number of neurological disorders have been described.
Neurosciences delivers a full range of adult neurological services. Neurologist treats conditions including stroke, dementia, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, headache, peripheral nerve and muscle disorders and Parkinson’s disease. Thanks to experts in the field, memory disorders are being diagnosed and treated.
Stroke: Extraordinary continuum of stroke care begins in the emergency room and continues in the outpatient setting.
Multiple Sclerosis: The Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Center provides comprehensive, collaborative care to our MS patients.
Today, the majority of children with chronic neuro-developmental disabilities are surviving to adulthood thanks to neurology. Neurologist enter the field prepared and comfortable with treating young adults with childhood onset chronic neurological conditions and evaluate the difficulty pediatric neurologists experience when transferring these patients to adult care.
