Dean Neurology

Dean's neurology specialists (neurologists) and pediatric neurology specialists diagnose, evaluate and treat diseases and conditions related to the nervous system including the spinal cord, brain, nerves and muscles. Dean's neurologists specialize in adult or pediatric neurology. They provide care in multiple Dean Clinic locations.

What Do Neurologists Specialize In?

A neurologist is a medical doctor (MD) or doctor of osteopathy (DO) who has additional specialized training in nervous system disorders including problems with:

  • Muscle strength
  • Movement
  • Balance
  • Reflexes
  • Sensation
  • Memory
  • Speech and language
  • Other cognitive abilities

When Are Patients Referred to Neurology?

A patient may be referred to a neurologist for:

  • Autism and related disorders
  • Pain management
  • Headache disorders such as migraine
  • Epilepsy and seizure disorders
  • Neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's disease
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Stroke
  • Movement disorders such as Parkinson's disease, tics, tremors
  • Tumors or trauma in the brain or spinal cord

When surgical treatment is necessary, our neurologists can expedite a referral to a neurosurgeon. A patient also may be referred to a neuropsychologist for cognitive function (brain functioning) evaluations and treatment.
