Neurology is a medical specialty dealing with disorders of the nervous system. Neurology deals with the diagnosis and treatment of all categories of disease involving the central, peripheral, and autonomic nervous systems, including their coverings, blood vessels, and all effector tissue, such as muscle. The neurology department deals with special conditions like strokes, headaches, neuromascular diseases, epilepsy, dementias (including Alzheimer's disease), multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease and other hyperkinetic disorders, pain syndromes, and brain injury. Neurologists often work with other health care providers. Some may be medical doctors, such as orthopedists and physical therapists. When surgical intervention is required, the neurologist may refer the patient to a neurosurgeon.
