Neurology

TREATING DISORDERS OF THE NERVOUS SYSTEM

Our neurologists diagnose and treat neurological symptoms and disorders including headaches, dementia, numbness or weakness in limbs, dizziness, epilepsy and other non-related seizures, stroke and multiple sclerosis.

NEUROLOGY

Neurologists are medical specialists that treat diseases of the brain, spinal cord, nerves and muscles. Since the nervous system is responsible for controlling all voluntary and most automatic functions of the human body, neurological disorders can manifest in a variety of different ways.

Typical symptoms of nervous system diseases include numbness/tingling, weakness, difficulty speaking or swallowing, pain, abnormal vision, seizures, memory loss, headache, abnormal movements, problems walking and bowel or bladder dysfunction. During an office visit a neurologist listens to patients symptoms and performs a special type of physical exam to identify where the symptoms originate in the nervous system. Afterwards, they can more clearly define a diagnosis and arrive at appropriate treatment strategies.

If you experience symptoms suggestive of a neurological disorder, discuss them with your primary care doctor. He or she can determine the significance of your symptoms and advise you whether to consult a Neurologist for further diagnosis and treatment.
