A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.
- Vascular and Interventional Radiology
Interventional radiologists, also known as vascular radiologists, use minimally-invasive imaging techniques to diagnose conditions in your organs and blood vessels. For example, if you need an angiography (an x-ray of the arteries) to diagnose a blockage in your blood vessels, your doctor will refer you to an interventional radiologist. They can, if needed, perform an angioplasty to open up the blocked passage.
They’re also trained to perform needle biopsies, insert stents, treat varicose veins and obstructions of the urinary tract (possibly due to kidney stones) and can help with dangerous postpartum bleeding. They treat various types of fibroids and embolization, which is a clot, air bubble or other blockage in the bloodstream. While the types of imaging procedures they perform are more invasive than x-rays done to identify broken bones, pain levels and recovery time are usually minimal.

After finding out that I had a brain aneurysm I was told by this doctor not to worry and to come back to see him within six months. In fact, I had a trip planned the following week and he encouraged me to go. I immediately sought expert advice from my doctor at the Houston Medical Center. Upon his completion of my angiogram, immediate surgery was in order to place a stint and coils in my brain as the aneurysm was large and on my carotid artery. Please get a second opinion if you are seeing this doctor.
Having to go through something frightening and traumatic has given me the opportunity to be cared for the greatest doctor I have ever met. He is very calm and reassuring while explaining, in an open and honest way, any medical conditions involved. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone. He saved my life and I hope that he always knows how appreciative and honored our family was by his care.
One of the best! I would highly recommend him to anyone!
