The brain is the most complex organ in your entire body. This is why CHRISTUS Health knows that the care it requires must be comprehensive, detailed, and focused on a highly effective approach to disease management and treatment.
Neurologists are physicians who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the central nervous system, which includes the brain, the spinal cord and the nerves. They possess expert knowledge of the neurological structures of the body, which allows them to diagnose, localize and treat an array of disorders that affect the nervous system. A subspecialty of neurology – neuromuscular disorders – encompasses the science, evaluation and management of disorders of the peripheral nerves, neuromuscular junctions and muscles.
