The Department of Neurology at Tirath Ram Shah Hospital is dedicated to offering innovative treatments and comprehensive care for a wide array of neurological disorders and injuries. We treat a wide spectrum of neurological disorders that includes stroke, epilepsy, headache, facial pain disorders, traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis, movement disorders, dementia, cerebral palsy, spasticity, hydrocephalus, cerebral aneurysms, brain & spinal vascular deformities, nerve & muscle disorders, sleep disorders, mental/behavior problems and chemical dependencies. Our multidisciplinary team comprising of neurologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, and radiologists uses the most advanced techniques and technology for skillful management of brain & nervous system conditions.
Our experienced team of neurologists provides excellent clinical care for neurological disorders and carries out its own clinical research and trials. The department also treats patients referred to it by physicians at the hospital and has a separate childcare division of its own. The neurology department has facilities for CAT (computed axial tomography) scan, neck and head ultrasound, and MRI (magnetic resonance imaging). Our team also carries out neurophysiologic studies of patients including EEG and EMG to ensure best possible care.
The medical history of the patient is taken by our neurologists in the beginning of the treatment, followed by a physical examination. The examination helps us evaluate the condition of the patient’s nervous system on the basis of the following factors:
cognitive function, cranial nerves, motor, sensory reflexes, and coordination. Some of the common neurological conditions treated at the department are:
- Chronic headaches
- Epilepsy (seizures)
- Attention deficit (hyperactivity disorder)
- Parkinson’s disease
- Sleep disorders
- Neuromuscular disease
- Multiple sclerosis
- Strokes(CVA) with CPA therapy/FCH
- Botox therapy/ Movement disorder
Treatment plans differ from patient to patient depending upon the type of neurological disorder. Patients are often referred to a physiotherapist, speech therapist, or psychotherapist; put on medications; advised on lifestyle modifications; or referred to a neurosurgeon when a surgery is needed.
The facilities of physiotherapy and neurosurgery are also available at the hospital.
