Neurology is a branch of medicine that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. At Koru Hospital, our Neurology department provides comprehensive care for a wide range of neurological conditions.
Our team of highly skilled and experienced neurologists, nurses, and support staff utilize state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to accurately diagnose and treat neurological conditions. Some of the common conditions that we diagnose and treat include:
Epilepsy and seizures
Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia
Neuropathies and nerve injuries
Brain and spinal cord tumors
Traumatic brain injury
To diagnose these conditions, our Neurology department employs a variety of techniques, including:
Electroencephalogram (EEG): measures brain activity and can detect abnormalities such as seizures.
Electromyography (EMG): evaluates muscle and nerve function and can help diagnose conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome and peripheral neuropathy.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI): provides detailed images of the brain and spinal cord, and can detect abnormalities such as tumors and strokes.
Computed tomography (CT): uses X-rays to create detailed images of the brain and can detect abnormalities such as bleeding and swelling.
Lumbar puncture (spinal tap): collects cerebrospinal fluid to test for infections, inflammation, and other conditions.
Once a diagnosis is made, our Neurology department offers a wide range of treatment options, including:
Medications: to manage symptoms and slow the progression of neurological conditions.
Rehabilitation: to improve function and quality of life for patients with neurological conditions.
Surgery: to remove tumors, repair injuries, and treat conditions such as epilepsy and Parkinson's disease.
Interventional procedures: such as nerve blocks and spinal injections, to manage pain and other symptoms.
At Koru Hospital, our Neurology department is dedicated to providing high-quality, compassionate care to patients with neurological conditions.
