Diagnosing & treating neurological disorders
Neurology is the study and treatment of nerves and the nervous system. Neurologists require specialty education in this field, as the nervous system is a highly complex and sophisticated network that coordinates countless activities and functions within the body.
Your nervous system is divided into two sections:
- Central nervous system: comprised of the brain and spinal cord
- Peripheral nervous system: all nerves and neural elements outside of the brain and spinal cord
The neurologists at West Jefferson Medical Center have extensive experience diagnosing and treating diseases and conditions within both parts of the nervous system. Our facility is equipped with all the necessary tools, technology, and devices to provide the best and most comprehensive care possible.
