What is Neurology?

Neurology is the Subspeciality of medicine dedicated to the study and treatment of nervous system disorders or in a single sentence Neurology is a branch of medicine concerned with the structure, function, and disorders of the nervous system. The nervous system is a sophisticated and complicated mechanism that governs and coordinates physiological processes.

What is the role of Neurosurgeons?

Neurosurgeons are medical professionals who diagnose and treat disorders of the brain, spine and other components of the nervous system. They differ from neurologists in that they have been specifically trained and certified to employ surgical therapies, whereas neurologists focus on other types of treatment.

What is the role of Neurologist?

Neurologists are doctors who specialize in illnesses of the brain and spinal cord, as well as peripheral nerves and muscles. Multiple sclerosis (MS),  Epilepsy, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, other dementias, stroke, meningitis, autism and migraines are among the most common neurological diseases. Some neurologists specialize in a field such as neurophysiology, epilepsy, pediatric neurology, vascular neurology, behavioral neurology, etc

The nervous system is critical to the body's survival and function. Everything we do is reliant on the messages sent by our nerves between our brain, spinal cord, and the rest of our body.

If you have been diagnosed with a brain or nerve condition, you'll want the most advanced care from our Neurology Specialists.  The Department of Neurology and Neurosurgery provide expert care for rare, complex conditions related to disorders of the brain and spine. Our team of Highly skilled and well-experienced Specialists is here to give you the most effective treatment for treating both adults and pediatric patients.
