Expert assessment and treatment for disorders of the nervous system
A doctor who specialises in this field is a Consultant Neurologist. The nervous system comprises the brain, spinal cord and nerves. It is an extremely complex system, made up of many different parts with hugely varied functions.
It is responsible for transmitting electrical impulses around the body in order to generate a specific response. If anything stops your nervous system working correctly, it can have a huge impact on any and every part of your body, affecting your health and, ultimately, your enjoyment of life.
The Consultant Neurologists at The Meriden Hospital treat a wide spectrum of neurological conditions and symptoms, and they would be delighted to help you too.
Some of the reasons people visit our neurologists for help include:
Neurological symptoms are often quite worrying to experience. It can be a sensible course of action to seek expert advice if you do experience any of them.
Many nervous system problems will often have overlapping symptoms, which makes an accurate diagnosis extremely important. The Neurology team at The Meriden Hospital are highly experienced at investigating symptoms like these in order to reach the correct diagnosis.
Some of the conditions that affect the nervous system include:
