The Neurology Department at The Hycy and Howard Hill Neuroscience Institute at Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center provides principal care to their patients with neurological disorders such as Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease or multiple sclerosis that requires frequent care. Our neurologists also act as a specialist consultant to other physicians for conditions such as stroke, concussion or chronic headaches. In a consulting role, a neurologist will diagnosis and treat a neurological disorder and then advise the primary care physician managing the patient's overall health.
Neurologists can recommend surgical treatment, but do not perform surgery. When treatment includes surgery, neurologists monitor surgically treated patients and supervise their continuing treatment. Neurosurgeons are medical doctors who specialize in performing surgical treatments of the brain or nervous system.
