At Sri Balaji Action Medical Institute, we have world-class neurology services available for both in and out patients. The state-of-the-art department provides care for a variety of neurological conditions related to brain, spinal cord, and the nervous system.
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.
