Neurology

Neurology is called the Queen of Medicine. Neurological diagnosis rests on a clear history & focused neurological examination. Even in this world of modern medicine, investigations like CT Scans & MRI Scans adds value only to a sound clinical diagnosis. On many occasions the routine investigations including scans & blood tests can be normal for many seriously ill patients. Many of the investigations reveal numerous Degenerative & Age appropriate changes which may be interpreted as abnormal. Hence a clear correlation between patient’s symptoms & signs with the results of the investigations require special time & attention. At People Tree Neurosciences, you will be assured of quality time to arrive at the correct diagnosis & hence provide a realistic plan for your treatment.

Advances over the last few decades in the treatment of Epilepsy, Meningitis, Deficiency Disorders, including the Influence of Immunosuppression in Myasthenia Gravis, Role of Plasma Exchange & Immunoglobulin in the treatment of Acute Demyelinating Neuropathies, use of Beta-Interferon in Multiple Sclerosis, Advances in pharmacotherapy for the treatment of Migraine, Parkinsons & use of Botulinum Toxin Injections in Movement Disorders has made many neurological disorders treatable. Rapid advances in the field of Steriotaxis & Radiosurgery for movement disorders, Epilepsy Surgery for refractory epilepsy has brought curative treatment much closer even for the most difficult neurological conditions.

People Tree Hospital has a Comprehensive Multispecialty ICU care under one roof with ventilators & other supportive subspecialties for such sick patients. Focused medical care with attention to details helps neurology patients at People Tree Medical ICU make an early & speedy recovery.


   Comprehensive Electrophysiology Lab

Neuro-Electrophysiology lab includes EEG (Electrocardiogram) , Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS) & Evoked potentials (NCS) . Neuro-electrophysiology services are provided by NIHON KOHDEN Neurofax EEG-1200K Digital EEG System & Neuropack S 1 MEB 9400 K 2 channel NCS/EP system imported from Japan. EEG is required in evaluation of patient with Focal & Generalized seizures, Metabolic Encephalopathy & Status Epilepticus. EEG helps in Classification of Epilepsy patients with correct Diagnosis & hence aids in choosing the Anti-Epileptic medications. Nerve Conduction Studies helps in Diagnosis of Perepheral Nerve Disorders like Demyelinating & Axonal Neuropathy in GB Syndrome, CIDP (chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy) , Focal Entrapment Neuropathy like carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Evoked Potentials like Visual Evoked Potentials (VEP) /Brain Stem Auditory Evoked Response (BAER) / Somatosensory Evoked Potentials (SSEP) are help full in evaluation of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) & related Demyelinating CNS Disorders. Kum. Neethu, Qualified & Experienced Electrophysiology Technician from NIMHANS is in charge of People Tree Neuro electrophysiology Lab.
