Welcome to Nervous System Diseases, a complete guide to diseases of the neurological system, with an emphasis on neurosurgical disorders. Our goal is to provide our readers with a complete, in depth introduction to surgical diseases of the nervous system that is accessible and understandable even if you do not have a background in science or medicine. Our experience both in the neurosciences and in education allows us to bring these oftentimes confusing topics into focus, taking away the mystery and confusion. Whether you or a loved one has recently been diagnosed with a neurological disease or you are just looking to learn more about neurology and neurosurgery, this site is an introduction to both the diseases that afflict the nervous system as well as the types of procedures and testing that these pathologies often require. If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with one of these disorders, this can be a very scary time for you. However, asking questions and the knowledge you can gain from it are a beginning which can lead to understanding and healing. We hope that this site can help to educate you about these nervous system diseases. General categories of diseases are found along the navigation bar to your left. Each of those buttons will link to sections which list specific disorders related to that topic. If you are unable to find a particular disease or condition, be sure to use our Site Map and Search function. If you still cannot find it, it is possible we do not yet have an article for that topic.
