Neurologists

A neurologist is someone who diagnoses and treats disorders related to the nervous system, which mainly includes diseases related to the spinal cord, nerves and the brain. Neurologists treat patients who have stroke related problems, epilepsy, Parkinson's disease, brain and nervous system infections, speech difficulties and language disorders and other neurological disorders that may be of either chronic or temporary nature. It is to be noted that neurologists do not perform any kinds of surgeries, which are in fact performed only by specialized neurosurgeons. They are however authorized to recommend surgical treatment to their patients, suffering from any sort of neurological disorder. Neurologists are extensively trained and educated to deal with an array of neurological diseases and thus are frequently called to assist at emergency rooms and also offer their assistance to other physicians and neurosurgeons. The origin of neurology can be traced back to the ancient Egyptian period and the Vedic period in ancient India. The different branches of neurology include, Geriatric neurology, Restorative Neurology, Neurotology and Neuroepidemiology. Here is a compilation of famous neurologists.
