Neurology

The department of Neurology at MMHRC has been growing on and on. It offers comprehensive evaluation and treatment for patients with neurological disorders. The department has two consultant neurologists and four Medical officers available round the clock. We have a state of the art neuro-electro-physiology laboratory for nerve conduction study, sleep laboratory, where sleep related problems are effectively managed. The number of patients this department has catered to this year has doubled, as against last year, which include diseases related to the brain, spinal cord, nerve roots, myoneural junctions, muscles, plexus etc.,

Polysomnography for sleep related disorders and for obstructive sleep apnea, which is becoming increasingly aware to the public is done in our lab. We also diagnose rare neurological disorders. We have state of art cross referral system where multisystem complicated cases Eg. TB lung with meningitis are handled with extreme efficiency.

Scope


  • Weakness of one side (hemiplegies) from the majority of admissions and all of them are managed effectively with significantly reduced mortality and disability, including opening of the blocked vessel in brain by tpA, a new wonder drug for stroke.
  • We have a separate stroke unit, so that thrombolytic therapy and other interventions can be planned appropriately.
  • We have been able to manage many demyelinating neuropathies and myasthenia gravis with the electro physiology lab support. Most of the cases received immuno gravis with the electro physiology lab support. Most of the cases received immuno modulatory therapy and thymectomy was done in 2 cases of myasthenia gravis.
