"Dr. Sklar and his staff are very efficient when it comes to treating my migraines. He has been my provider for over 10 years now, from 2006 on, and he always has the right treatment in regards to my medical care. Nothing could lead me to change Dr. Sklar as my Neurologist, in fact I would first change my insurance rather than switch providers. Thanks to him and his staff, I can lead a more productive life!!"

What is Neurology?

Neurology is the study of the brain and nervous system, including the spinal cord and nerves. Disorders of the nervous system can affect many parts of the body, and a neurological exam must be quite thorough. A neurologist examining a new patient will check for any issues with:

  • motor skills (the way your brain and muscles work together)
  • sensory skills (sight, hearing, taste, touch and smell)
  • nerve function
  • coordination and balance
  • changes in mood or behavior

A neurologist can order different kinds of tests to check the function of the brain and nerves. These tests may include a head CT scan (a type of 3-dimensional x-ray), an electroencephalogram (which measures the electrical impulses inside the brain), an MRI (a detailed image of the brain or spinal cord), or electromyography (which uses electricity to test nerve function). The results of the exam and the tests help neurologists diagnose and form treatment plans for disorders like multiple sclerosis, tremors, stroke, and migraine headaches.

Some neurological problems, such as certain brain tumors, may require surgical treatment. Since neurologists do not perform surgery, they will refer patients who need operations to a surgical subspecialist, such as a neurosurgeon. Beyond surgery, a neurologist might recommend any of the following treatments:

  • medication (such as interferon for MS or topiramate for migraines)
  • laser therapy (class IV laser treatment is sometimes used to alleviate peripheral neuropathy pain)
  • physical therapy (stretches and exercises can increase balance and range of motion, helping patients to move more easily and with less pain)

Therapies such as these can improve quality of life for patients dealing with neurological disorders. Neurologists help their patients sense and interact with the world at their very best.
