Neurosciences (Neurology & Neurosurgery) - Specialized Services
Stroke ProgrammePatients with ischemic stroke can urgently be taken up for a wide range of interventions including intravenous thrombolysis, intra-arterial and mechanical thrombolysis. A round the clock facility for imaging with CT scan head and MRI is also available with a functional DSA laboratory dedicated for such intervention.
Comprehensive Epilepsy ProgrammePatients with difficult to control seizures can be evaluated with a delicate Video EEG set up. There is a group of patients of epilepsy who do not respond to any combination of various anticonvulsant drugs. These patients are evaluated and treated by epilepsy surgery including excision of focus, removal of solitary lesions, hemispherectomy, and corpus callosotomy and subpial transactions by specially trained neurosurgeons specialized in epilepsy surgery.
Movement disorder Programme
The neurology department is geared to treat a wide variety of movement disorders such as tremor, dystonia, Parkinsonism, tics, chorea and myoclonus Botulinum toxin injections are routinely being given for dystonias such as cervical dystonia (torticollis), blepharospasm, hemifacial spasm and writer’s cramp. In conjunction with specially trained neurosurgeons, we run a successful deep brain stimulation (DBS) surgery program and routinely perform other functional stereotactic brain surgeries for treatment of advanced Parkinson’s disease, generalized dystonias and severe tremor.
