When a patient is diagnosed with a neurological disorder, a proper treatment plan must be executed in order to alleviate the signs and cure the underlying disease. Treatment may be performed medically or surgically. Many neurological conditions such as epilepsy or a fibrocartilaginous embolism (FCE) are only treated medically, meaning that pharmaceutical therapy and patient care are essential for patient recovery. Other neurological problems such as a herniated disk or brain tumor may require surgical treatment to remove the lesion and/or repair damaged tissue. All surgical patients must be treated medically as well.
