What is Neurology?
Neurology is an area of medicine that concentrates on the diagnosis and treatment of disorders and diseases of the nervous system such as the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves. Many neurological conditions have basic common symptoms which may include headaches, loss of balance, memory loss, numbness in an extremity, weakness, tremors, rigid muscles, gait instability or trouble walking.
A Team Approach to Treating Neurologic Disorders
Our physician team, including Board Certified neurologists, works closely with referring physicians as well as a multidisciplinary team of doctors at Mercy, including interventional pain medicine specialists, neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, radiologists, vascular surgeons and rehabilitative specialists. Our doctors are committed to developing individualized treatment plans, addressing each patient’s unique needs.
Offering Advanced Diagnostic Services
Our neurologists focus on prevention, early detection and consistent management of neurological diseases when possible. Patients benefit from our doctors’ special training in a variety of neurological diagnostic tools including EMG (Electromyography) and EEG (Electroencephalography), which can provide a better understanding of the underlying cause of a series of symptoms and allow for a more complete treatment plan.
