Neurology is the study of the nervous system and the diagnosis of conditions that affect it. The nervous system is extremely complex and regulates and coordinates the body's activities. It involves the brain, spinal cord, nerves and muscles.
At BMI Kings Park Hospital we offer regular outpatient clinics with Consultant Neurologists to diagnose and manage neurological conditions. These include common problems such as headaches, blackouts, seizures, weakness or numbness in the limbs, walking difficulties and memory problems.
Further investigations may be required in some cases such as an MRI scan, nerve conduction study, EEG or lumbar puncture.
Some of the common concerns for seeing a Neurologist are:
- Vision problems
- Memory problems
- Tingling or loss of sensation
- Movement problems
A referral from a GP or other healthcare professional is required.
