QUICK LOOK:

Neurology


Neurology is the branch of medicine dealing with disorders of the nervous system. Adult and pediatric neurologists at Summit Medical Group care for a wide variety of neurological disorders affecting the brain, spinal cord, nerves, and muscles.

Our facility is equipped with state-of-the-art imaging, including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), and carotid ultrasound. We provide electrodiagnostic testing, including nerve conduction studies (NCS), electromyography (EMG), evoked potentials (EP), and electroencephalography (EEG).

 

COMMON NEUROLOGICAL DISORDERS

Common nervous system disorders that a neurologist can diagnose and treat include:

 

Strokes – Sometimes called a cerebrovascular accident (CVA), stroke is a permanent brain injury due to either insufficient blood flow or hemorrhage, which causes sudden change in neurologic function. Transient ischemic attack (TIA) is a short-lasting vascular brain injury without permanent injury.

Epilepsy (seizure) – Seizure is a sudden change in behavior caused by an electrical disturbance in the brain. Epilepsy is a propensity for recurrent seizure, which is often successfully treated with medication.

Headaches – One of the most common medical complaints. Tension type headache and migraine headache are the most common varieties of recurring headache.

Concussion – A cluster of neurologic symptoms or signs occurring immediately and sometimes lingering after head injury. Symptoms may include a change in consciousness, headache, dizziness, or change in mental acuity. 

Dementia – Dementia is a decline in cognitive performance severe enough to impact daily function. There are many conditions that cause dementia. Alzheimer's disease is the most common degenerative dementia affecting the elderly.

Multiple sclerosis – An immune-mediated inflammatory disorder of the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) with diverse symptoms.

Parkinson’s disease – A progressive, neurodegenerative movement disorder, commonly presenting with tremor, slow movement, rigidity, and problems walking.

Peripheral neuropathy – A common and diverse problem of peripheral nerve damage, including nerve and nerve root impingement, and inherited or acquired neuropathy. Common symptoms include numbness, tingling, pain, and weakness.
