Neurology

Neurology is a branch of medicine dealing with disorders of the nervous system. Neurology deals with the diagnosis and treatment of all categories of conditions and disease involving the central and peripheral nervous systems (and their subdivisions, the autonomic and somatic nervous systems), including their coverings, blood vessels, and all effector tissue, such as muscle. Neurological practice relies heavily on the field of neuroscience, which is the scientific study of the nervous system.

  • Stroke

Stroke is a medical condition in which poor blood flow to the brain results in cell death. There are two main types of stroke: ischemic, due to lack of blood flow, and hemorrhagic, due to bleeding. They result in part of the brain not functioning properly. Early treatment with medication like tPA (clot buster) can minimise brain damage. Other treatments focus on limiting complications and preventing additional strokes.

  • Epilepsy

Epilepsy is a neurological disorder. Primary symptoms commonly include seizures. Seizures have a range of severity depending on the individual. Treatments include anti-seizure medications. Epilepsy is usually treated by medication and in some cases by surgery, devices or dietary changes.

  • Interventional Neurology

Interventional Neurology aims primarily at reporting clinical and laboratory studies on endovascular techniques as well as other interventional therapies in the management of stroke.

  • Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s disease is due to the loss of brain cells that produce dopamine. Early signs and symptoms of Parkinson’s disease include tremors or trembling, slow movement, body rigidity and stiffness, and problems walking.

Neurosurgery

Neurosurgery or neurological surgery is the medical specialty concerned with the prevention, diagnosis, surgical treatment, and rehabilitation of disorders which affect any portion of the nervous system including the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, and cerebrovascular system.

  • Congenital cranial deformation
  • Stereotactic brain tumor surgery
  • Craniofacial Surgery with FMS (Facio-maxillary surgery)

Spine Surgery

The vertebral column, also known as the backbone or spine, is part of the axial skeleton. The vertebral column is the defining characteristic of a vertebrate, in which the notochord (a flexible rod of uniform composition) found in all chordates has been replaced by a segmented series of bones—vertebrae separated by intervertebral discs. The vertebral column houses the spinal canal, a cavity that encloses and protects the spinal cord.
