Neurology is a branch of medicine which deals with the diseases of brain and its connections.
Brain is the master of the body and it controls almost all functions which we perform. The nervous system consists of brain and its connections, namely spinal cord,peripheral nerves and muscles.
It has many functions ranging from the maintenance of consciousness, thought process, judgement and memory to other basic functions such as muscle power,sensations, coordination and gait. Special senses like vision, hearing and taste are also controlled by brain. Diseases which affects any part of the nervous system have a great impact on our functioning ability.
Neurological diseases take a heavy toll on both patient and family. It is said that time lost is brain lost.Acute neurological conditions have to be diagnosed and treated expeditiously for a good outcome. Comprehensive neurological care includes a good clinical assessment,, laboratory diagnosis including blood tests, EEG, ENMG, neuroimaging like CT scan, MRI,and neuropsychological assessment. Patient education and awareness is equally important for a healthy society, which we strive to provide at our centre, through various means.
To provide the state-of-art, correct,compassionate and cost effective neurological care.
