The human nervous system - the brain, spinal cord and nerves - is an intricate network that controls all the body's functions, from breathing and swallowing to walking and learning.
Problems with this complex system - such as Parkinson's disease, stroke, epilepsy, brain tumours and dementia - require expert diagnosis and treatment by a team of highly skilled physicians.
Our physicians diagnose and treat conditions of the nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord and nerves. Diseases treated may include stroke, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, epilepsy, migraines, carpal tunnel syndrome, ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease), herniated (slipped) disks of the spine and sleep disorders, including sleep apnea and narcolepsy.
Neurology is a branch of medicine dealing with disorders of the nervous system. Neurology deals with the diagnosis and treatment of all categories of conditions and disease involving the central and peripheral nervous system (and its subdivisions, the autonomic nervous system and the somatic nervous system); including their coverings, blood vessels, and all effectors tissue, such as muscle. Neurological practice relies heavily on the field of neuroscience, which is the scientific study of the nervous system. A neurologist is a physician specialising in neurology and trained to investigate or diagnose and treat neurological disorders. Neurologists may also be involved in clinical research, clinical trials, and primary or translational research. While neurology is a non-surgical speciality, its corresponding surgical speciality is neurosurgery.
