Department of Neurology

The nervous System – the most arduous and perplexing of systems in the human body commands impeccable strategy. Neurology is the limb of medicine about the research and dealing with diseases of the nervous system. The nervous system is a complicated and intricate system that regulates and organizes body movements. It has two major divisions:

  1. Central nervous system: the brain and spinal cord
  2. Peripheral nervous system: all other neural elements, such as eyes, ears, skin, and other “sensory receptors”

High-quality outpatient and inpatient services are available for the diagnosis and management of various neurological disorders. Several neurological conditions like epilepsy, neuromuscular diseases, pediatric stroke, neonatal neurology and developmental disorders, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, dementia, neuromuscular diseases, and spine disorders are some of the conditions dealt with by an expert team of doctors in our hospital.

Our neurophysiology department provides various investigations including electrophysiology studies, EEG, nerve conduction studies, CT scans, and MRI scans. Investigations like CT and MRI scans are available round the clock in the hospital. We have treated a thousand cases regarding neurological conditions. Some of the cases are highlighted below.

KEY CONDITIONS TREATED

  • Stroke

    A condition in which a blood vessel in the brain ruptures and bleeds, or when there’s a blockage in the blood supply to the brain.

  • Dementia

    Dementia is a general term for symptoms affecting memory, communication, and thinking.

  • Epilepsy

    Epilepsy is a chronic disorder that causes unprovoked, recurrent seizures.

  • Parkinsonism

    Parkinson’s disease is a progressive nervous system disorder that affects movement. Symptoms start gradually, sometimes starting with a barely noticeable tremor in just one hand.

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

    Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) -, is a progressive nervous system disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord, causing loss of muscle control.ALS is often called Lou Gehrig’s disease,

  • Multiple sclerosis

    Multiple sclerosis is a chronic disease that affects the central nervous system, which is the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves.

  • Alzheimer’s Disease

    – It is a neurological condition in which the death of brain cells causes memory loss and cognitive decline.

  • Tourette’s Syndrome

    Tourette syndrome is a neurological disorder. It causes repeated, involuntary physical movements and vocal outbursts.

  • Neuromuscular diseases

    Neuromuscular disease is a broad term that comprises many diseases and illnesses that undermine the functioning of the muscles, either directly, being pathologies of the voluntary muscle, or indirectly affecting nerves or neuromuscular junctions.

  • Congenital spine disorders

    Congenital spine disorders are disorders of the spine that formulate in children before birth. Usually, in these cases, the backbone does not evolve correctly early in fetal development, causing structural problems with the spine or spinal cord Some congenital spine conditions our pediatric neurosurgeons treat include: Scoliosis, Spina Bifida, Tethered Spinal Cord, Kyphosis, and Lordosis
