What do we offer treatment for? 

Stroke - Both medical and Interventional management

  •  A stroke is a medical condition that occurs when blood flow to the brain is interrupted or reduced, resulting in the death of brain cells. It typically results from a blocked or burst blood vessel, leading to a range of symptoms that can include sudden weakness or numbness on one side of the body, difficulty speaking or understanding speech, and loss of balance or coordination.

Epilepsy or Seizures - seizures in infants, children and adults.

  • Epilepsy is a neurological disorder characterized by recurrent and unpredictable seizures. These seizures occur due to abnormal electrical activity in the brain, which can cause temporary changes in behavior, movements, or consciousness. While the exact cause of epilepsy is often unknown, it can be attributed to various factors such as genetics, brain injury, tumors, infections, or developmental disorders

Headache Disorders - Migraine, Cluster Headache and secondary headaches like Trigeminal Neuralgia

  • Headache disorders encompass a wide range of conditions characterized by recurring headaches. The most common type of headache is migraine headache which causes severe and can cause throbbing pain, sensitivity to light and sound, nausea, and even visual disturbances. Tension-type headache is often experienced as a dull, mild to moderate pain that affects both sides of the head. Cluster headaches are another type of debilitating headache disorder that occur in cycles and result in intense pain around one eye along with nasal congestion or runny nose. Headaches can be triggered by various factors such as stress, lack of sleep, certain foods, hormonal changes, or environmental factors. 

Movement Disorders - Essential Tremor, Parkinson's Disease, Chorea (including Huntington's Chorea), Myoclonus, Restless leg syndrome, Wilson's Disease, NBIA (Neuronal Brain Iron Accumulation) disorders

  • Movement disorders are a group of neurological conditions characterized by abnormal movements or difficulties in initiating and controlling voluntary movements. One common movement disorder is Parkinson's disease, which is caused by a lack of dopamine production in the brain and leads to symptoms such as tremors, stiffness, slow movement (bradykinesia), and difficulties with balance and coordination. Another movement disorder is Huntington's disease, an inherited condition that progressively affects nerve cells in the brain, resulting in involuntary jerking movements (chorea), muscle rigidity, and cognitive decline.

Dystonias and Dyskinesias - Primary and drug induced causes.

  • Dystonia and dyskinesias are both types of movement disorders that can cause involuntary and abnormal movements. Dystonia is characterized by sustained muscle contractions that result in twisting or repetitive movements, as well as abnormal postures. These movements can affect specific body parts or the entire body, interfering with daily activities and causing pain or discomfort. Dyskinesias refer to a range of involuntary movements, including chorea (jerky, random movements), athetosis (slow, writhing movements), and ballismus (sudden flinging motions). Dyskinesias often occur as side effects of certain medications used to treat other movement disorders, such as Parkinson's disease.

Wilson's Disease

  • Wilson's disease is a rare genetic disorder that causes excess copper buildup in the body, leading to liver and neurological problems. If not diagnosed and treated early, it can result in severe complications such as liver failure and neurological damage

Cerebral Venous Thrombosis - Occlusion of the outflow system of the brain.

  • Cerebral venous thrombosis is a rare condition where a blood clot forms in the veins that drain blood from the brain. It can lead to symptoms such as headaches, seizures, and neurological deficits if not diagnosed and treated promptly.

Demyelinating Disorders - Multiple Sclerosis(MS), Neuromyelitis optica(NMO), MOG antibody related disorders.

  • Demyelinating disorders of the brain are characterized by damage to the protective covering (myelin) around nerve fibers, disrupting normal electrical signaling. Conditions like multiple sclerosis (MS) can result in a wide range of symptoms, including motor or sensory changes, cognitive impairments, and coordination difficulties.

Vertigo or Giddiness

  • Vertiginous disorders refer to a group of conditions that cause vertigo and associated symptoms such as dizziness, imbalance, and nausea. These disorders can be caused by issues with the inner ear, brainstem abnormalities, or certain medical conditions.

Neck pain, Back Pain, Cervical Spondylosis, Lumbar Spondylosis

  • Cervical spondylosis refers to the degeneration of the vertebrae in the neck region, leading to symptoms like neck pain, stiffness, and tingling or numbness in the arms and hands.
    Lumbar spondylosis refers to the degenerative changes in the lower back region, causing symptoms such as lower back pain, sciatica (radiating leg pain), and difficulty in walking or standing for long periods.

Autoimmune Disorders - Anti-NMDAR encephalitis, Autoimmune encephalitis, Paraneoplastic Encephalitis, Autoimmune epilepsy.

  • Autoimmune encephalitis is a rare condition where the body's immune system mistakenly targets and inflames the brain, causing a variety of neurological symptoms such as cognitive deficits, seizures, and behavioral changes. Early recognition and treatment are essential to improve outcomes for individuals with autoimmune encephalitis.

Memory Disorders (Dementia) - Alzheimer's Disease (AD), Frontotemporal Dementia(FTD), Dementia - parkinsonian syndromes.

  • Dementia is a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by a decline in cognitive abilities, memory loss, and difficulties with thinking and problem-solving. It can have a profound impact on daily functioning and quality of life for individuals affected as well as their caregivers.

Peripheral Nerve Disorders - Neuropathy, Diabetic Neuropathy, Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Neuropathy (CIDP), Guillian Barre Syndrome (GBS), Toxic Neuropathy,  Drug Induced Neuropathy

  • Peripheral nerve disorders, such as peripheral neuropathy, can cause symptoms like numbness, tingling, and weakness in the extremities due to damage to the nerves outside the brain and spinal cord. Early detection and management are crucial for preventing further complications and improving patients' quality of life.

Muscle disorders - Muscular Dystrophy (Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, Becker's Muscular Dystrophy, Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy), Myopathic Disorders (Lipid storage myopathy, Metabolic myopathy, Glycogen Storage Disorders)

  • Muscular dystrophy is a group of genetic disorders characterized by progressive muscle degeneration and weakness. It affects both children and adults, often leading to difficulties with mobility and daily activities.

Myasthenia Gravis, Eaton Lambert Syndrome

  • Myasthenia gravis is a chronic autoimmune neuromuscular disorder that causes muscle weakness and fatigue. It occurs when the communication between nerves and muscles is disrupted, leading to difficulty in controlling voluntary movements.

Neuropathic Pain

  • Neuropathic pain is a complex chronic pain condition resulting from damage or dysfunction of the nervous system. It often presents as sharp, shooting, or burning pain and can be challenging to treat effectively.

Hirayama Disease

  • Hirayama disease, also known as juvenile muscular atrophy of the distal upper extremity, is a rare neurological disorder that affects the muscles in the hands and forearms. It typically occurs in young males and is characterized by weakness and wasting of these muscles, leading to functional impairment.

Sleep Disorders - Insomnia, Narcolepsy, REM Behavioral disorder, Sleep talking, Sleep walking, Nightmares. 

  • Sleep disorders are characterized by disturbances in the quantity, quality, or timing of sleep. They can range from insomnia and sleep apnea to narcolepsy and restless leg syndrome, impacting overall health and well-being.

Disorders causing Ataxia or imbalance

  • Ataxic disorders are neurological conditions that affect coordination, balance, and muscle control. Conditions like Friedreich's ataxia and cerebellar ataxia can result in unsteadiness, difficulties with fine motor skills, and impaired speech.

Disorders of Urine control - Neurogenic Bladder, Spastic Bladder

  • Disorders of urine control, such as urinary incontinence or urinary retention, can significantly impact a person's quality of life and daily activities. These conditions may be caused by various factors, including neurological disorders, muscle weakness, or hormonal imbalances.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common condition that causes numbness, tingling, and weakness in the hand and fingers. It occurs when the median nerve in the wrist becomes compressed, usually due to repetitive motions or conditions like pregnancy or arthritis.

Facial Palsy or Bell's Palsy

  • Facial palsy, also known as Bell's palsy, is a condition characterized by sudden weakness or paralysis of the facial muscles. It can cause drooping of one side of the face and difficulty with facial expressions, speech, and eating.

Cerebral Palsy

  • Cerebral palsy is a lifelong condition that affects movement, posture, and muscle coordination due to damage to the developing brain. It can result in varying levels of motor impairment and challenges with daily activities.

Pediatric neurodevelopmental disorders

  • Pediatric neurodevelopmental disorders refer to a range of conditions affecting a child's brain development, such as autism spectrum disorder, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and intellectual disability. These disorders can impact a child's cognitive, social, and behavioral functioning, requiring specialized support and intervention.

Pediatric Demyelinating Disorders and Stroke

  • Pediatric demyelinating disorders are rare conditions that involve damage to the myelin sheath, the protective covering of nerve fibers in the central nervous system. They can lead to symptoms such as weakness, numbness, and difficulty with coordination. Pediatric strokes, although uncommon, can have significant long-term effects on a child's neurological development and require prompt medical attention.

Interventional Neurology related problems - Aneurysms, Carotid Stenosis, AV Malformations in brain, Dural AV fistulas, Carotid-Cavernous Fistulas. 

  • Interventional neurology is a specialized field of medicine that utilizes minimally invasive techniques to treat disorders of the blood vessels in the brain and spine. Procedures such as catheter-based interventions and endovascular surgeries are performed to restore blood flow and manage conditions like aneurysms and strokes.

Procedures we do

Electroencephalogram (EEG)

  • Electroencephalogram (EEG) is a non-invasive diagnostic test that records the electrical activity of the brain using electrodes placed on the scalp. It helps healthcare professionals in diagnosing and monitoring conditions such as epilepsy, sleep disorders, and brain injuries.

Electromyography (EMG)

  • Electromyography (EMG) is a diagnostic test that assesses the electrical activity of muscles and nerves. It is commonly used to diagnose and monitor conditions such as muscle disorders, pinched nerves, and nerve damage.

Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS)

  • Nerve conduction study (NCS) is a diagnostic test that measures the speed and strength of electrical signals as they travel through the nerves. It is often used to diagnose conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, peripheral neuropathy, and nerve injuries.

Botox Injections

  • Botox injections are a commonly used treatment for various neurological disorders such as cervical dystonia, blepharospasm, and spasticity. By blocking nerve signals to specific muscles or glands, Botox can help alleviate symptoms and improve the quality of life for patients with these conditions.
