Neurological Disorders and Stroke

Neurological disorders are clinically identified as conditions that impact the brain, the nerves distributed throughout the body, and the spinal cord. Structural, biochemical, or electrical irregularities in these neural structures can manifest in a variety of symptoms.

Stroke stands as a significant contributor to global disability, yet its neurological impact has historically been underestimated, primarily because the World Health Organization (WHO) categorized it differently. However, with the latest update to the WHO International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11), stroke has been rightfully reclassified as a neurological disorder. Vascular neurology specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of strokes and factors that contribute to stroke risk. Seeking the expertise of a vascular neurologist is crucial during or after a stroke, or if you are at risk of experiencing one.
