What Does a Neurologist Do?

Neurologists diagnose and treat brain and nervous system disorders, excluding surgeries. They undergo extensive training, typically requiring a college degree, 4 years of medical school, a 1-year internship, and 3 years of neurology specialization. Conditions they address range from Alzheimer's and epilepsy to strokes and peripheral neuropathy. Pediatric neurologists specialize in treating children's nervous system issues. Common symptoms prompting a referral include headaches, seizures, numbness, and vision problems. Neurologists conduct thorough exams, including EEGs and imaging tests, to confirm diagnoses. Subspecialties encompass headache medicine, sleep disorders, and neuro-oncology. Treatments may involve medication, therapy, or specialized procedures tailored to individual conditions.

Preventing Dementia: Know Risk Factors, Protect Your Brain

Making lifestyle adjustments is part of improving the health of your blood vessels. Your brain should start protecting your vascular health early because brain alterations can occur decades before dementia symptoms manifest. An added benefit is that better blood vessel health lowers your risk of heart attack, stroke, and other dangerous illnesses.

What Is a Neurologist?

Neurologists specialize in diagnosing and treating brain, spinal cord, and nervous system disorders. They address conditions like epilepsy, MS, Parkinson’s, strokes, and brain tumors. With advanced testing, they pinpoint causes and refer patients to neurosurgeons when necessary. Neurologists undergo medical school, internships, and neurology residencies, with optional subspecialties like epilepsy. They conduct thorough assessments using imaging and tests like EEGs and MRIs. Reasons for referral include frequent headaches, neurological injuries, and memory loss. Neurologists tailor treatment plans, incorporating medication and therapy, or refer patients for neurosurgery when needed. Accurate diagnosis is key for effective treatment and management of neurological conditions.
