Neurology

The Department of Neurology provides round-the-clock emergency care to patients suffering from all types of neurological problems. We have a dedicated team providing critical care for stroke patients in our intensive care unit. We have special programs in helping children and adults with epilepsy and seizure disorders.

The following are some of the studies carried out:

  • Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS)
  • Electroencephalography (EEG)
  • Electromyopgraphy (EMG)
  • Somatosensory Evoked Potential (SSEP)
  • Repetitive Nerve Stimulation (RNS) for Myasthenia
  • Auditory Evoked Potential (AEP)
  • Visual Evoked Potential (VEP)
  • Brain Stem Evoked Response Audiometry in Children (BERA)
We treat GBS, Myasthenic Crisis, Acute Infective Disorders combined with a good rehabilitation programme. State-of-the-art Neuro CATH Lab – ‘EVANS’ has been established at Vijaya Health Centre campus. The centre performs a number of interventions to revert strokes. Several services are offered including embolization techniques for brain aneurysm, chemo-embolization and radio-embolization of liver and other tumours. Revascularization, endovascular reconstruction, pain relief procedures and varicose vein treatment with radiofrequency ablation are few among the many services offered by the department.
