Neurology deals with disorders of the nervous system. Neurology involves diagnosing and treatment of all divisions of conditions and ailments involving the central and peripheral nervous systems (and their subdivisions, the autonomic and somatic nervous systems), including their coverings, all effector tissue, blood vessels, such as muscle. Neurological practice is the study of the nervous system.
Neurological disorders are treated by a neurologist who specializes in neurology and is trained to investigate, diagnose and treat neurological disorders. Some major neurological conditions and ailments that Neurologists treat include seizures, strokes, autoimmune neurologic disorders such as multiple sclerosis, movement disorders such as Parkinson's disease, headache disorders like migraine, and dementias such as Alzheimer's disease. Clinical trials, clinical research, and basic or translational research are part of Neurologists’ responsibilities.
Neurology is certainly a non-surgical speciality but its corresponding surgical specialty is neurosurgery. Many neurologists have additional interest in one area of neurology in which they specialize. These areas of specialization include neuromuscular disorders, sleep medicine, epilepsy, pain management, movement disorders, headache, and stroke.
Neurology deals with the diagnosis, treatment, and management of each condition mentioned above. The patient may be referred to as a neurosurgeon or interventional neuroradiologist when surgical or endovascular intervention is needed. In some countries, the role of a neurologist may include finding comatose in a person as an additional legal responsibility. Lumbar punctures are among the frequent treatments done in neurology.
In Neurology, the neurologists work both in inpatient and outpatient settings by examining patients who are referred to them by other physicians. A comprehensive medical history of the patients is just the start of neurological treatments. Neurological treatments are complex and focus on evaluating the nervous system. The various components of the neurological assessment include the patient's reflexes, cranial nerves, sensation, cognitive function, gait, coordination, and motor strength.
The department of Neurosciences in Wellness Hospitals is considered as one of the best neurology and neurosurgery facilities in India with a pedigree of breakthrough excellence. Our Neurologists and Neurosurgeons achieve outstanding neurological outcomes on par with the global institutions with the help of our latest Neuro-Intensive Care facilities and Medical and Radiation Oncology services. We have a track record of serving multiple generations in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh with an infrastructure that stands in sync with international standards and specialist doctors who made this hospital the most preferred center for neurological care.
Since its establishment, Wellness Hospitals has been the frontier settler in the department of neurosurgery. Wellness Hospitals contain the latest medical equipment that helps treat a variety of neurological conditions and diseases including myopathies, Parkinson’s disease, Myasthenia Gravis, headache, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, stroke, coma, and many more proving itself to be the best Neuroscience Hospital in Hyderabad.
Neurologists at wellness hospitals have global-level training in diagnosing, treating, and managing disorders of the brain and the nervous system. They treat various diseases like Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, migraine, stroke, and amyotrophic lateral. Neurologists at Wellness hospitals are specially trained to diagnose the evolving ailments in neurology at a faster rate than the others. For example, some neurological ailments and conditions have a psychological origin and should be treated with coordination with a psychologist. Understanding the roots here is a challenge that only trained neurologists could crack.
Neuroscience is the key specialty at Wellness Hospitals. As a dedicated service provider in the field of neuroscience, we have been offering extensive medical care in invasive and non-invasive treatments, diagnosis, rehabilitation, therapy, and continued care for patients suffering from neurological conditions. We perfectly blend innovative technology with medical expertise to offer the best healthcare solutions in the industry. We provide appropriate diagnosis and treatment to various segments of neurology with a keen eye for detail.
Upon visiting a neurologist, a diagnosis is first performed. We have a line-up of extremely talented and trained doctors who can identify and diagnose ailments using their experience and our Top Line equipment to examine patients. These examinations include testing the major physical aspects such as strength, reflexes, coordination, mental condition, eyesight, gait, and speech. Although medicine has now progressed such that it’s working hand in hand with the latest technology, the manual neurological examination remains just as relevant and important.
Sometimes, a neurologist may have to request additional diagnostic tests as part of the evaluation. Imaging studies such as computed axial tomography (CAT) scans, ultrasound of major blood vessels of the head and neck, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are usually carried out tests in neurology. Other commonly ordered studies include nerve conduction studies (NCSs), evoked potentials, Neurophysiological studies, and electroencephalography (EEG). Performing lumbar punctures to assess a patient's cerebrospinal fluid is a common scene. Advances in genetic testing paved the way to advanced techniques in the classification of inherited neuromuscular disease in addition to a diagnosis of many other neurogenetic diseases.
Some common tests include -
You should visit a neurologist when you face the following conditions.
Some of the procedures that neurologists perform are a Lumbar puncture or an NCS/EMG. We also have neurologists who are specialists in several sub-specialties and they perform autonomic testing, angiograms, coiling of aneurysms, skin and muscle biopsies and they even perform intraoperative brain and spine monitoring.
During the consultation, the patient’s neurologic issues are addressed while the neurologist also looks into the patient's medical history. Then the patient undergoes the aforementioned neurological examination testing the strength, reflexes, coordination, mental condition, eyesight, gait, and speech. After this test, the neurologist can determine the area that has been affected in the central nervous system and prepare his diagnosis accordingly. Upon diagnosis, the appropriate treatment may begin.
