About Neurology

  • Neurology is a branch of medicine which deals with disorders of the nervous system. It encompasses diagnosis and treatment of all categories of conditions and diseases involving the central and peripheral nervous system (and its subdivisions, the autonomic nervous system and the somatic nervous system); including their coverings, blood vessels, and all effector tissue, such as muscles.
  • A Neurologist is a physician specializing in neurology and trained to investigate, or diagnose and treat neurological disorders, while its corresponding surgical specialty is Neurosurgery.
  • Epileptologist is a neurologist specially trained in evaluation and management of patients with epilepsy including training in electrophysiology, epilepsy surgery and intra-operative monitoring.
  • Interventional Neurologist is a neurologist specially trained in evaluation and management of patients with stroke and neurovascular disorders including training in performing Cerebral Angiography and all endovascular neuro-interventional surgical procedures like angioplasty, aneurysm coiling etc.
  • Our dedicated team of Interventional Neurologist, Epileptologist, Neurosurgeons, Neuro-intensevists, Neuroanaesthetists, Neuro-technologists, Neuro-physiotherapist provide holistic care for patients with neurological disorders.
