What is neurology?

Neurology is a medical area of specialty that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of diseases affecting the brain, nervous system and spinal cord.

Neurological issues affecting patients range from strokes, brain traumas, epilepsy, sleep disorders to neck and spine conditions.
