Neurologists treat patients with a range of concerns related to the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves. People with severe headaches or who are recovering from a stroke would benefit from seeing a neurologist. Neurologists also treat patients with Alzheimer's disease and multiple sclerosis.
We also offer telestroke technology
If your emergency medicine provider suspects you are having a stroke, he or she will activate the telestroke hotline at Mayo Clinic, which connects them to a Mayo Clinic vascular neurologist. The vascular neurologist will provide a real-time, audiovisual consultation and evaluation. Having this technology available reduces the risk of stroke-related disabilities for our patients.
