General Neurology Treatment
Neurology is a medical specialty that deals with the disorders of the nervous system, including the diagnosis and treatment of all categories of disease involving the central, peripheral and autonomic nervous systems. Neurology is the medical application of neuroscience, which is the scientific study of the nervous system.
At the General Neurology Program at the Northwell Neuroscience Institute, we offer a multidisciplinary program focused on developing state-of-the-art diagnostic and therapeutic solutions for neurological disorders involving the brain, spine, nerves and muscles. Our experienced neurologists diagnose and treat pain, weakness, visual disturbances or other symptoms resulting from a neurological disorder. We provide compassionate care and support for the full spectrum of neurological disorders.
There are more than 600 diseases of the nervous system, including brain tumors, epilepsy, Parkinson's disease, stroke and dementia. Acquired and degenerative neurological disorders are frequently associated with varying combinations and degrees of impaired motor, sensory and central coordination functions, as well as postural control problems. If you suffer from one of these disorders, you may also suffer from secondary impairments, which further complicate diagnosis and treatment planning.
Treatments for neurological disorders range from open surgeries and minimally invasive surgeries to therapy, rehabilitation, medication, lifestyle changes and preventive measures. Every form of treatment is specialized to your specific neurological condition. Complete and early evaluation of your neurological disorder is extremely vital to determining the best form of treatment in order to improve the lives of our patients.
