Neurologists are physicians who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the central nervous system, which includes the brain, the spinal cord and the nerves. They possess expert knowledge of the neurological structures of the body, which allows them to diagnose, localize and treat an array of disorders that affect the nervous system. A subspecialty of neurology – neuromuscular disorders – encompasses the science, evaluation and management of disorders of the peripheral nerves, neuromuscular junctions and muscles.
At CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances Neuroscience Institute, our affiliated physicians use advanced techniques and technology to treat complex neurological conditions. We have special expertise in stroke, epilepsy, headaches, neuromuscular disorders, multiple sclerosis, movement disorders, pediatric neurology and intraoperative monitoring.
