Providers in the Department of Neurology diagnose and treat disorders of the central and peripheral nervous systems, which include the brain, spinal cord, and outlying nerves in the body.

Seeing a neurologist is imperative when individuals experience symptoms related to the nervous system, which comprises the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves. Recognizing when to seek the expertise of a neurologist is crucial for the timely diagnosis and management of neurological conditions.

Persistent or severe headaches, especially those accompanied by other symptoms such as vision changes, weakness, numbness, or difficulty speaking, warrant consultation with a neurologist. These symptoms may indicate underlying issues such as migraines, tension headaches, or more serious conditions like brain tumors or hemorrhages.

Individuals experiencing seizures, whether they are new onset or a recurrence of previously controlled seizures, should promptly seek evaluation by a neurologist. Seizures can be indicative of epilepsy or other neurological disorders requiring specialized treatment and management.

Symptoms such as weakness, numbness, tingling sensations, or loss of coordination in the limbs or other body parts may signal underlying nerve or muscle disorders, such as neuropathy or multiple sclerosis, necessitating assessment by a neurologist.

Individuals with movement disorders such as tremors, involuntary muscle contractions (dystonia), or difficulty with balance and coordination (ataxia) should see a neurologist for proper diagnosis and management. Neurologists are skilled in evaluating and treating various movement disorders, including Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, and essential tremor.

The importance of the Department of Neurology lies in its specialized expertise in diagnosing and managing a wide range of neurological conditions. Our providers undergo extensive training to understand the complexities of the nervous system and its disorders, enabling them to provide comprehensive care tailored to individual patient needs.

Timely consultation with a neurologist is essential when experiencing symptoms related to the nervous system. The Department of Neurology's presence provides access to specialized care and comprehensive treatment options, ultimately improving outcomes for patients with neurological conditions.
