Disorders of the brain, nervous system and spinal cord are usually diagnosed with a neurologic examination. It is also important to understand that mental illnesses are typically classified separately from disorders of the central nervous system. Major neurological disorders include stroke, cerebral palsy, speech and language disorders, tumours of the brain, and movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease and Huntington’s disease.
A whole team of neurologists, radiologists and physiotherapists (for occupational therapy, physiotherapy and speech therapy) supports you with treatments and neuro-rehabilitation therapy to get you back on track fast.
Surgery on the brain, spinal cord, and nerves may generally be described as neurosurgery, or neurological surgery. Our neurosurgeon manages brain tumours and tumours of the spine, spinal cord and peripheral nerves. Other conditions that may require neurosurgery include head trauma, which may arise as a result of injuries to the head.
