Welcome to the Department of
Neurosciences and Spinal Disorders at MGM Healthcare

Overview of neurological conditions

Neurology is a branch of medicine that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of disorders involving the brain and nervous system. The neurological system includes the brain, spinal cord, cranial nerves, peripheral nerves, nerve roots, autonomic nervous system, neuromuscular junctions, and muscles. Together, these structures control communication between different parts of the body, enabling movement, thought, and sensory perception.

Conditions and Treatments

We have one of the best team of neurologists and neurosurgeons in India on-board and they are highly experienced in treating all types of conditions related to the nervous system, including:

  • Disorders of the blood vessel – including – carotid artery stenosis and stroke
  • Malignant and Non-Malignant Brain tumours
  • Injuries to the brain, such as an injury due to concussion or blunt-force trauma
  • Dementia and related conditions, including Alzheimer’s disease
  • Seizure disorders and syndromes like Epilepsy
  • Severe Migraine and Headaches
  • Movement disorders, including Parkinson’s disease
  • Neurodevelopmental disabilities, including cerebral palsy
  • Neuromuscular diseases, including multiple sclerosis and muscular dystrophy
  • Peripheral nerve injury, including carpal tunnel syndrome and trigeminal neuralgia
  • Postherpetic neuralgia, or persistent pain following an episode of shingles
  • Psychological behaviours related to brain disease or dysfunction
  • Sleep disorders, including insomnia and restless leg syndrome
  • Spine injury, trauma, or degeneration (breakdown), including spinal stenosis in the cervical (neck) or lumbar (low back) areas
  • Our neurologists work with neuro rehabilitation specialists and oversee rehabilitation services after surgery to help people regain function after a neurological event, such as a stroke.

If you are experiencing any neurological symptoms or have questions related to it, we are here to help. Our expert team consists of highly skilled neurologists who work very closely with neurosurgeons to provide highly personalized treatment services to adults and children.

In many cases, the doctor will be able to diagnose the condition only after taking various tests to assess brain and nerve function as the cause of the neurological condition may not be known or may be poorly understood. The results of these tests will help the neurologist and neurosurgeon to put together a personalized treatment plan. Your neurologist may order image scans, blood tests, or specialized examinations, including:

  • Electroencephalogram (EEG) to measure brain activity
  • Electromyography (EMG) to measure muscle and nerve function and activity
  • Evoked potentials (EP) to measure response time to a sensory stimulus
  • Genetic testing to uncover potential causes of neurological symptoms and diseases
  • Imaging tests including computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and ultrasound
  • Myelography to evaluate the spinal cord and nerve damage
  • Sleep studies to measure brain activity and sleep-wake cycles

Once the evaluation is complete, your neurology treatment may involve:

  • Medication therapy, which is often the primary treatment
  • Care for stroke, traumatic brain injury, and other conditions
  • Physical or occupational therapy for rehabilitation from neurological conditions
  • Minor diagnostic procedures such as myelography (imaging of spine) and spinal tap

The nature of the treatment plan will vary depending on the severity of the condition. Some conditions can be treated only with medication, while many others might warrant a combination of medication and surgery. Post-surgery, some cases might require admission for rehabilitation and more intensive care. Our panel of doctors will work with you closely in putting together a personalized treatment plan to suit your needs. We are highly specialized in treating a wide range of neurological conditions.
