Illnesses, disorders, and injuries that involve the nervous system often require a neurologist’s management and treatment.
Neurosciences have been developed to a state of the art with very senior super specialists available for the patients suffering from neurological problems like cerebrovascular accidents (CVA)/paralytic strokes, fits, Parkinson’s disease, head, spine and brain injuries and tumors are all managed in this department.
The latest and sophisticated equipment for neurological studies as well as manned and equipped ICU for serious neurological cases including head injuries due to road traffic accidents, etc. are also available.
Even when difficult circumstances arise that call for surgical treatment and rehabilitation of neurological disorders in some patients, we work collaboratively to provide them with specialty concerned neurosurgeries.
SYMPTOMS YOU SHOULD LOOK OUT FOR
Symptoms that commonly require a neurologist’s attention include:

People having problems with their senses, such as touch, vision, or smell should also see the neurologist for further investigation because sometimes problems with senses may be caused by nervous system disorders.

- headache medicine

- autonomic disorders like multiple system atrophy, afferent baroreflex failure, etc.
- vascular (stroke care)
- child neurology
