Neurology; It is a branch of medical science that generally examines diseases of the brain, brainstem, spinal cord, peripheral nervous system and muscles, and includes diagnosis and treatment practices other than surgery. It deals with diseases of the brain and all nerves in the body, as well as diseases of other organs of the body that are damaged as a result of the disease of these systems.

Diseases affecting the brain, spinal cord and surrounding nerves (tumor, inflammation, accidents, etc.) are generally the same things. However, the shape and width of the defect in the body varies depending on the function of these structures. What is seen in the disorders of the surrounding nerves is the decrease in strength and sensation in the area where that nerve goes. Again, due to the nervous effect, sweating and blood flow are disrupted in these areas. The reason for this is that the vegetative nervous system fibers are also carried within the peripheral nerves.

The spinal cord is a main pathway that carries sensation from the organs to the brain and motor (movement-related) stimuli from the brain to the surroundings. Disorder in this area causes loss of strength, loss of sensation and inability to perform vegetative functions. In addition, the person with a spinal cord injury loses urinary and fecal control.

To summarize the main diseases related to neurology below:

Headaches: Migraine and tension type headaches (which are the result of depression and distress), which are the most common causes of headaches..etc.
Dizziness (vertigo)
Strokes: The most common causes of strokes today are clot (embolism) and hypertension. At the same time, neurology deals with the factors that cause clots and the fight against these factors.
Epilepsy disease
Parkinson’s disease, MS (multiple sclerosis) and peripheral diseases called neuropathy, that is, diseases of the nerves that govern the body, muscle diseases
Infectious diseases of the brain and nerves: For example; meningitis, encephalitis, myelitis… etc.
Treatments of brain and nerve diseases occurring at birth or after birth, and brain tumors and their treatment
Waist and neck pain (lumbar and neck hernia)
Accidental head trauma, spinal cord trauma, etc.
Alzheimer’s (forgetfulness)
Beriberi disease (metabolic disease caused by vitamin B1 deficiency)
Sleeping disorders
Depression, manic depression (bipolar mood disorder)
social phobia
Brain, nerve and muscle diseases
The increase in the elderly population and other socio-psychological reasons cause systemic diseases such as hypertension, heart disease and diabetes and their complications to become more common. Stroke is the most dramatic and feared of these complications. This group of patients is evaluated with a multidisciplinary approach in the neurology department of our hospital.

Today, neurology is no longer a closed and limited branch, but is divided into sub-disciplines that require specialization, such as epilepsy, movement disorders, cerebrovascular diseases, dementia, and sleep disorders.
