Neurology is a branch of medical science that handles the treatment of your nervous system diseases and conditions. Our nervous system comprises two different systems, Central nervous system and Peripheral nervous system. The central nervous system or the CNS contains the brain and the spinal cord. The peripheral nervous system or PNS involves the nerves and ganglia outside the brain and spinal cord.
The spine surgeons in Bangalore deal with the diagnosis and disorders of the brain and spinal cord or entire nervous system.
A spine surgeon or a spine specialist is a medical doctor who specializes in treating the spine and backbone.
A Neurosurgeon is trained to treat conditions of the brain and spine, while a spine surgeon or spine doctor specializes in treating the spine or back or neck.
If your pain is severe in your neck, back and spine and doesn’t improve with medications and rest, or if you have pain after a fall or an injury, you should consult a spine specialist. Consult a spine doctor if you also have trouble urinating, weakness, pain, or numbness in your legs; fever; or unintentional weight loss.
You should see a spine surgeon only after consultation with a spine specialist or spine doctor.

The human nervous system is a complicated yet critical system of the body. If not given proper attention and care to symptoms like sharp headache, pain and numbness, it may lead to brain hemorrhage, stroke and paralysis in the longer run. Therefore, you should see or consult a neurologist if you suspect problems related to your nervous system.
