Diagnosing and Treating Disorders of the Nerves and Nervous System

The neurologists at Lima Memorial Health System deal with the anatomy, functions and disorders of nerves and the nervous system. This includes assessment, diagnosis and treatment options.

The nervous system is a complex system that coordinates and regulates body activities. It has two major divisions:

  • Central nervous system: the brain and spinal cord
  • Peripheral nervous system: all other neural elements, such as eyes, ears, skin and other “sensory receptors”

Our neurologists treat disorders that affect the brain, spinal cord and nerves. This includes a wide range of conditions such as:

  • Dementia
  • Headaches
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Neuromuscular disorders
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Seizures
  • Strokes

It should be noted that neurologists do not perform surgery. If surgery is a treatment option, the patient will be referred to a neurosurgeon.
