Neurology Q&A

What is neurology?

Neurology is a medical branch that deals with diseases involving your nerves, brain, and spinal cord (your nervous system). The central nervous system consists of your spinal cord and brain, while the peripheral nervous system includes the other nerves — including those in your ears, eyes, skin, and other areas.

Neurologists diagnose and treat neurology conditions to reduce your risk of severe complications and bothersome symptoms. Neurosurgeons perform surgery on the nerves, brain, and spinal cord.
