A Neurologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of diseases affecting the central and peripheral nervous system. The main difference from neurosurgery is that neurology deals with treatment from the “outside”, while neurosurgery deals with operations.
The correct functioning of the nervous system plays a huge role in the health of the body, as it is responsible for the precise operation of all human organs.
Neurologist deals with diseases of the nervous system, often accompanied by paralysis, loss of pain, temperature and other types of sensitivity, convulsions, mental disorders. The main problems that neurologist deals with include:
- headache and facial pain;
- back pain;
- stroke and its consequences;
- Illnesses caused by trauma to the head or back.
