Skilled in the treatment of diseases of the nervous system
Neurology is a medical specialty dealing with disorders of the nervous
system. Specifically, it deals with 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 corresponding surgical specialty is neurosurgery.
A neurologist is a physician (not a surgeon) who specializes in neurology,
and is trained to investigate, or diagnose and treat, neurological disorders.
Pediatric neurologists treat neurological disease in children.
Neurologists may also be involved in clinical research, clinical trials,
as well as basic research and translational research.
Neurologists are specialty experts skilled in the non-surgical treatment
of diseases of the nervous system. These diseases include Alzheimer's
disease and related disorders of aging and memory, Parkinson's disease
and other movement disorders, headache and neurological pain, neuromuscular
disease and spine disorders, multiple sclerosis, seizures, stroke, and
much more. They often serve as consultants to other treating physicians.
