Frequently Asked Questions

You should consider seeing an orthopedic surgeon if you experience persistent pain, discomfort, or limitations in movement that affect your daily activities, particularly if these symptoms are related to the joints, muscles, or bones. Other reasons include injuries that don’t heal with initial treatment, progressive pain that worsens with activity, or after a recommendation from your primary care doctor following an injury.

There are many types of orthopedic surgeries, and the specific procedure depends on the particular health issue. Common surgeries include arthroscopy (a procedure using special cameras and equipment to visualize, diagnose, and treat problems inside a joint), joint replacement (like hip, knee, or shoulder replacements), fracture repairs, and surgeries for correcting spinal issues and deformities.

Pain management is typically practiced by specialists who are trained in either anesthesiology, neurology, and physiatry (physical medicine and rehabilitation). These doctors have additional training in the field of pain medicine to diagnose, treat, and manage pain in a comprehensive way.

If you have persistent or severe pain that does not improve with primary care treatments, or if pain is impacting your quality of life, seeing a pain management specialist might be beneficial. Chronic pain that persists for more than three to six months, or pain that is associated with a health condition such as cancer, may also warrant a visit to a specialist.

Neurologists treat a wide range of neurological conditions including:

  • Stroke
  • Seizures and epilepsy
  • Migraines and other types of headaches
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and other muscle-weakening diseases
  • Brain and spinal cord injuries
  • Brain tumors
  • Sleep disorders
You should consider seeing a neurologist if you experience symptoms such as unexplained headaches, chronic pain, dizziness, numbness or tingling, muscle weakness, changes in sensation, coordination problems, or if you have had a seizure. Additionally, if you have been diagnosed with a condition that affects the nervous system or if a primary care doctor recommends a consultation, seeing a neurologist would be beneficial.
