Neurology

What is Neurology?

Neurology is a branch of medicine that studies and treats the major parts of the nervous system including the brain, spinal cord and nerves.

What Does a Neurologist Do?

Neurologists specialize in the diagnosis, treatment and management of disorders of the brain, spinal cord and nervous system. Neurologists complete an additional three years of training in order to better understand and treat the delicate organs of the central and peripheral nervous systems.

What Conditions Does a Neurologist Treat?

  • Muscle weakness
  • Coordination problems
  • Decrease in sensations
  • Seizure disorders
  • Encephalitis
  • Spinal cord tumor
  • Meningitis
  • Brain abscess
  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
  • Alzheimer's
  • Spinal cord disorders
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Migraines
  • Cluster headaches
  • Brain tumor
  • Parkinson's disease
  • Stroke

What Exams Does a Neurologist Perform?

Your brain, spinal cord and nerves are delicate and intricate, which makes the testing and examination of the nervous system quite complex. These are some of the procedures used in neurology diagnostics:

  • Computed tomography (CT Scan)
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Positron emission tomography (PET Scan)
  • Electroencephalography (EEG)
  • Electromyography (EMG)
  • Electronystagmography (ENG)
  • Sleep study
  • Angiography
  • X-Ray
  • Fluoroscopy
  • Biopsy
  • Cerebrospinal fluid analysis
  • Discography
  • Thermography
