Neurology focuses on the illness affecting the central, peripheral and autonomic nervous system including the brain, blood vessels, muscles and nerves. A neurologist is a medical practitioner, who is expertise in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of brain and nervous system disorders. Pediatric Neurologists are medical professionals with training in treating neurological diseases in children.
Preethi Hospital’s Neurology department provides comprehensive medical care for all types of neurological disorders. We provide the best neuro care available, including neuro-diagnostics, interventional treatments, and surgery for various neuromuscular disorders. Ably assisted by the latest Neuro-Radiology services, Neuro-Intensive Care facilities and Medical Oncology services, our Neurologists achieve outcomes in neurological disease & treatments matching those of the leading institutions.
Neurological Conditions Treatment & Surgeries:
Delivering the best neuro care for various neurological conditions:
Cerebral palsy: A neurological condition characterized by poor posture and muscular tone, affecting coordination and movement. It is due to the disruption of the brain’s development at birth. Physical treatment, occupational therapy, speech & language therapy and other therapies can all be used to treat cerebral palsy.
Epilepsy: Epilepsy, a neurological illness marked by seizures and brief occurrences of unusual behaviour, sensations, and occasionally loss of consciousness, is brought on by a disruption in the activity of the brain’s nerve cells. If drugs are ineffective, doctors may advise surgery or treatments such as vagus nerve stimulation and a ketogenic diet.
Headache: A most prevalent medical disorder, however, the symptoms differ depending on the headache. After examining the patient’s history, it can be diagnosed accurately.
Movement disorders: Mobility disorders relate to a variety of neurological conditions that can cause improved movement or reduced or delayed movement. These motions could be intentional or unintentional.
Stroke: A stroke is an unexpected decline in brain function. When blood flow disrupts or blood vessels rupture, brain cells in the afflicted area die. The symptoms of a stroke vary depending on the location of brain damage and the degree of harm caused. Surgery is a common method for people with certain circumstances to prevent strokes.
Brain Cancer: A malignant brain tumour, affecting normal brain function. After considering the patient’s age, tumour kind, and tumour stage, there are many therapies for brain cancer. Some symptoms are encephalitis, cluster headaches, subdural hematomas, and migraines. It is always advisable to speak with our doctor to receive a precise diagnosis and prompt treatment.
Traumatic brain injury: Traumatic brain damage results in brain malfunction due to severe impact or external mechanical stress to the brain. Serious difficulties include ruptured brain tissues, haemorrhage, bruising, and other physical harm to the brain that may result from a severe traumatic brain injury. Seek medical assistance even if the symptoms are moderate or severe.
Migraine: A migraine is a severe headache that generates intense throbbing pain on both sides of the head as well as a pulsating feeling. If untreated, it results in panic attacks, depression, and anxiety. Adhere to the doctor’s recommendation to control the symptoms and avoid personal migraine triggers for significant changes in regular patterns.
Diagnosis Test for Neurological Disorders:
After reviewing the patient’s medical history, a neurological examination is performed to evaluate the patient’s reflexes, coordination, mental condition, sensibility, and strength.
A neurologist will conduct any of the following tests:
Neurological diseases are treated differently depending on their severity. Both medication and surgery could be suggested by our neurologist. In some circumstances, our doctor could ask to have you hospitalized for treatment and more intense care. Preethi Hospital’s Department of Neurology offers thorough assessments and neurology services for a variety of neuro-problems, including stroke, brain haemorrhage, back pain, spinal disorders, neuro-oncology, epilepsy, and other neuromuscular diseases.
Our neurologists will check for complex neurology diseases and conditions of the patient and provide treatment based on the observation. Today, Neuroanaesthesia, Neurosurgical intensive care and Neuro-imaging technology have advanced so much that mortality has significantly reduced and functional outcomes have improved tremendously. Minimally invasive techniques help decrease the mortality and morbidity associated with surgery.
The integrated team of neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuro anaesthetists, neuro physicians and intensivists, along with rehabilitation specialists, are dedicated to this goal.
