Department of Neurology consists of –
- Stroke and Interventional Radiology services
- Epilepsy services
- Advanced care for all types of Neuromuscular diseases
- Advance care for Alzheimers disease and other dementias
- Pediatric Neurology
- Migraine and headaches (Cephalalgia)
- Movement disorders
1. Stroke and TIA Clinic
Stroke is one of the most common neurological emergencies. Stroke occurs when a blood vessel in the brain either gets blocked or ruptures and causes neurological dysfunction including loss of consciousness and paralysis etc., We offer diagnosis and management of all types of strokes from simple to complex conditions and stroke intervention by radiologists / surgeons gives an upper hand compared to many centers outside
2. Neuromuscular Clinic
Neuromuscular diseases covers all the diseases affecting your nerves and muscles. The hospital has expertise to diagnose any neuromuscular disease with advanced electrophysiology studies like NCS, EMG, RNS, EPs and also provide latest treatments with dedicated physiotherapy and rehabilitation. Genetic testing with genetic counselling also forms an integral part of the clinic
3. Epilepsy Clinic
Epilepsy is characterized by unprovoked seizures or fits caused by sudden and unregulated electrical activity in the brain. Epilepsy is treatable provided the patient complies with medication and lifestyle changes as required. Surgery may also sometimes be required in a few of the resistant cases. We provide comprehensive care for all preventable, treatable and refractory epilepsies
4. Dementia Clinic
Dementia is a term used to describe a set of symptoms indicating loss of intellectual ability including memory, that interfere with daily life. Alzheimer is one of the common types of dementias. We provide medical therapy and rehabilitation for the suffering patients
5. Migraine and Headache Clinic
Migraine is characterized by its recurrent and episodic headache usually on one side of the head. It can be triggered by certain factors like lack of sleep, skipping a meal or stress. It can be easily controlled with medications and lifestyle modification. Complex cephalalgia management is also available include Botox injections
6. Movement disorders Clinic
Parkinsons disease is a disorder characterized by slowness of movement, tremors and rigidity of the limbs. It is generally well controlled by properly tailored medication regimen. Functional Surgery (Deep Brain Stimulation- DBS) also forms a method of treating this debilitating disease. The other types of movement disorders are also treated here.
Armed with a thorough knowledge of the disease and its implications, our neurology team first confirms the diagnosis by a focused investigation protocol and then devises an individualized treatment protocol based on available scientific evidence. Treatment may include a structured medication regimen, physiotherapy, neurostimulation, periodic follow up and sometimes surgery in the form of lesion resection like in epilepsy or Brain Pacemaker insertion as in the case of DBS for Parkinsons disease.
