What is a Neurologist?

Diseases and disorders of the central nervous system can range from the relatively mild, such as recurrent headaches or speech and language disorders, up to the deadly serious, including spinal cord damage, seizure disorders, and stroke. If you or a loved one have a problem with the brain, spinal cord, and/or nerves of the body, you need the services of one of the top neurologists in London. Many of the best neurologists in London are listed with Doctify. It is important to note that finding a neurologist in London is not the only doctor you might possibly need.

Neurologists don’t generally perform surgical procedures – Instead, their speciality is in the diagnoses and management of central nervous system (CNS) disorders and diseases. If a patient requires surgery, usually most top neurologists in London can provide referrals to trusted neurosurgeons to provide the surgery. In many cases, there may be neurosurgeons associated with the same practice as the neurologist. Additionally, patients can always find a neurosurgeon in London through Doctify.

When to see a Neurologist?

Many CNS problems do not require surgery, however, and a neurologist in London will be able to provide a range of treatment options. Many seizure disorders, speech disorders, nerve disorders, and degenerative problems (such as MS, Alzheimer’s Parkinson’s, etc.) are best addressed with a combination of medication and therapy. On the other end of the spectrum, some spinal cord injuries may require surgery, or be inoperable altogether. Neurology is a complex and varied field of expertise, but for any CNS problems, you may experience, visiting one of the top neurologists in London can help simplify and clarify your individual situation, and get the best treatment options available.
