Neurology

Neuro Hospital in Patiala


Neurology studies the nervous system, which includes the brain and spinal cord. Neurologists are medical doctors who specialise in diagnosing and treating disorders that affect the central nervous system, peripheral nerves, and muscles. They can also help people recover from injury or disease that affects the brain or spinal cord. Common neurological disorders include Alzheimer's disease, Huntington's disease, Parkinson's disease, and Multiple Sclerosis. All these disorders disrupt the brain's normal function. In Alzheimer's disease, for example, this disruption is due to a breakdown in the connections between neurons. The result is a slow decline in memory and learning abilities and changes in personality and behavior. Manipal Hospitals is trusted as the best neurology hospital in Patiala offering treatment for multiple neurological disorders.

What are Neurological Disorders?

Neurological Disorders are any disorder that affects or damages the nervous system, which includes the brain and spinal cord. Neurological disorders can be as simple as a headache or as complicated as a stroke. They can be genetic, caused by physical injury, or acquired during a person's life.

The most common neurological disorders include Alzheimer's, Epilepsy, Parkinson's, Multiple Sclerosis, and Huntington's. They may also include Autism Spectrum Disorder or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

Manipal Hospitals has the best neurology doctor in Patiala and the best neurosurgeons in Patiala to help patients overcome conditions like:  

  • Acute Stroke 

  • Cerebrovascular Diseases 

  • Paediatric and Adult Epilepsy

  • Neuromuscular Diseases

  • Parkinson's Disease and related disorders

  • Alzheimer's Disease 

  • Disorders of Cognition

  • Multiple Sclerosis 

  • Demyelinating Disorders

Common Neurological Disorders
  • Acute Stroke 

Acute stroke is a sudden, severe brain injury that occurs when blood flow to the brain is interrupted. Acute stroke causes part of the brain to die immediately because of a lack of oxygen. The warning signs are:

  • Sudden numbness or weakness of the face 

  • Numbness on one side of the body

  • Sudden confusion or trouble understanding speech or writing

  • Sudden vision troubles

Any symptom of Acute stroke needs immediate medical attention.

  • Cerebrovascular Diseases

Cerebrovascular diseases are disorders of the blood vessels in the brain. The most common form of these disorders is called stroke, which occurs when a clot blocks a brain artery, causing a lack of oxygen to the brain. The effects of this can be devastating and can include paralysis, loss of speech, and death.

Cerebrovascular diseases occur more commonly as people age and can result from high blood pressure, hardening of the arteries, smoking, diabetes, high cholesterol levels, obesity, or an irregular heartbeat. In addition to these risk factors, genetics also play a role in determining the development of Cerebrovascular disease.

  • Epilepsy

Epilepsy is a chronic neurological disorder characterized by recurrent unprovoked seizures. The seizures result from abnormal or excessive neuronal activity in the brain.

Seizures are symptoms of epilepsy. An epileptic person may experience one seizure or hundreds throughout their lifetime. Seizures can vary from undetected (no specific symptoms) to causing serious physical harm or even death.

  • Neuromuscular Diseases 

Neuromuscular diseases affect the muscles and the nerves that control them. They can cause weakness, paralysis, or both.

Neuromuscular diseases are inherited and result from exposure to viruses and other causes. Some examples of neuromuscular diseases include:

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

  • Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD)

  • Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

  • Parkinson's Disease 

Parkinson's disease affects the brain's ability to control movement. It is a degenerative neurological condition connected to the loss of dopamine-producing cells in brain parts essential for controlling motor skills(Substantia Nigra). The disease causes tremors, stiff muscles, and difficulty walking and speaking.

Parkinson's disease is more common in older adults than younger people.

  • Alzheimer's Disease 

Alzheimer's disease is a progressive and degenerative brain disease that causes a person to experience Dementia. The disease is most common in people 65 or older. The common symptoms are loss of memory and other cognitive functions such as problem-solving, language, and judgment.

  • Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis is a neurological condition that causes damage to the Myelin Sheath surrounding nerve cells, which is a layer of insulation for the nerve cells. Damage to Myelin Sheath can lead to problems with nerve impulses being transmitted and received by the brain.

Multiple Sclerosis has many possible causes, and the immune system plays a role in its development. Some people with multiple Sclerosis also have specific genes that make them more susceptible to developing this disease.

The symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis may include fatigue, blurred vision, loss of balance or coordination, numbness or tingling sensations, muscle weakness or spasms, bladder control problems, memory loss, depression, and mood changes.

  • Demyelinating Disorders

Demyelinating disorders are conditions where the protective sheath around nerves is damaged, causing inflammation, weakness, and pain.

There are two main types of demyelinating disorders:

  • Infectious Demyelination: Viruses, bacteria, or fungi can cause this demyelination. A condition can also cause it called Multiple Sclerosis (MS), which is an autoimmune condition.

  • Autoimmune Demyelination: The body's immune system mistakenly attacks the myelin sheath that protects the brain and spinal cord nerves. 

Diagnosis Facilities
  • EEG

EEG or "Electroencephalogram" measures the brain's electrical activity. This test uses electrodes on the scalp and skull or wires attached directly to the brain. 

During EEG, doctors measure brain waves as they occur naturally during rest and sleep. They interpret these waves to determine whether or not there is a problem with brain function.

An EEG also monitors patients diagnosed with epilepsy.

  • MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)

An MRI is a non-invasive way to take pictures of the body. The patient lies inside a large tube that houses a magnet and radio waves. These waves produce images of the body on a computer screen.

The MRI scanner is like a tunnel with a large magnet in the centre. It has coils that send and receive radio waves. Patients are surrounded by these coils when they lie on the table inside. The patient's body acts as an antenna for these radio waves.

The scanner uses these radio waves to create pictures of the body.

  • CT Scan

A CT scan uses X-rays to produce cross-sectional body images. A computer combines the images into a 3-dimensional picture of the internal organs and structures.

A CT scan can detect neurological disorders and diseases, including cancer, infections, blood vessel damage, and abnormal growths or masses. It also determines the extent of disease in areas where it might not be easy to detect with other tests.

CT scans are painless and non-invasive. They require no preparation before the procedure other than removing any jewellery or objects that might interfere with the images.

  • Ultrasound

An Ultrasound produces images of the body's internal structures using high-frequency sound waves. Ultrasound has many applications in neurology, including its use in diagnosing neurological disorders.

Ultrasound diagnoses some brain tumours, such as Meningiomas (tumours arising from the brain and spinal cord) and Epidermoid Cysts (non-cancerous bumps under the skin). It can also diagnose Intracranial Hemorrhage and other conditions that affect the brain's blood vessels. 

Ultrasounds also monitor neurological disorders such as Multiple Sclerosis and Cerebral Palsy. 

  • Lumbar Puncture

Lumbar Puncture, or spinal tap, is used to diagnose neurological disorders. Doctors remove a small amount of Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) by inserting a needle into the lower back. The CSF presents signs of infection, inflammation or other neurological conditions on testing.

  • EMG

The Electromyogram (EMG) measures the muscle's electrical activity. It diagnoses neurological disorders and other conditions.

The EMG involves attaching electrodes to a patient's skin, which connect to an Electromyograph (EMG) device. These electrodes pick up the muscle's electrical signals when they contract and record them.

  • NCS - Nerve Conduction Study

NCS or Nerve Conduction Study diagnoses neurological disorders. It is a painless procedure that uses electrical stimulation to measure how well the nerves transmit signals. The doctor applies electrodes to the skin and sends electrical impulses through the nerves in the arms and legs to determine their condition.

  • Electrophysiology Lab

Manipal Hospitals, Patiala, has a dedicated Electrophysiology lab comprising high-precision Electroencephalogram (EEG), Video Telemetry, and Electromyography (EMG) scans, enabling the top neurologists in Patiala to diagnose neurological disorders with precision.

  • 1.5-Tesla MRI 

1.5-Tesla MRI uses Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) to look at the brain and other parts of the nervous system. It can see structures too small or too deep to be seen on conventional MRI scans. 1.5-Tesla MRI diagnoses neurological disorders, including Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Multiple Sclerosis, and Spinal Cord Injury.

1.5-Tesla MRI also offers better clarity than conventional MRIs in many cases. In some instances, it can show detailed images of structures in the body that are not visible with other forms of imaging, leading to better treatments.

  • PET-CT 

PET-CT (Positron Emission Tomography and Computed Tomography) uses two different types of imaging to examine the body. The PET part of the test takes pictures using a radioactive tracer, allowing doctors to see how organs function. The CT portion of the test takes pictures using x-rays, allowing doctors to see the structure of bones and other body parts.

PET-CT is often used to diagnose neurological disorders such as Alzheimer's, Brain Tumours, and Stroke. It can also diagnose neurodegenerative disorders like Multiple Sclerosis (MS).

  • Molecular Diagnostics

Molecular Diagnostics is a branch of medicine involving molecular biology and genetics to diagnose, predict, and monitor diseases.

It is a technique that identifies genetic mutations and selects targeted therapies for patients. It helps diagnose neurological disorders such as epilepsy, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, and early-onset breast cancer.

Neurological disorders are challenging to diagnose because they often have no apparent symptoms until they become severe or life-threatening. As such, they are often only diagnosed after extensive testing or after someone has experienced a decline in their health.

Treatment Facilities
  • Memory Clinic

A Memory Clinic helps patients with problems related to their memory.

Memory Clinics have doctors who specialise in treating neurological disorders and provide services from diagnosis and treatment through research and education.

The goal of a memory clinic is to stop deterioration in dementia through early diagnosis and treatment and identify and treat disorders that might be contributing to the patient's problems. 

Memory clinic also evaluates new treatment possibilities and assures patients.

  • Stroke Management

Stroke Management involves multiple doctors and specialists. A clot that blocks the brain's blood flow may result in neurological damage that can be mild or severe.

The stroke treatment will depend on several factors, including the location of the clot and how much damage has occurred. The goal is to reduce or eliminate symptoms and prevent further damage to the brain.

  • Neuro Intensive Care

Neuro Intensive Care is the treatment of neurological disorders. It can be a standalone treatment, or it can complement other treatments in order to help the body heal itself.

Neuro Intensive Care treats neurological disorders that have resulted from trauma or disease. Neuro Intensive Care aims to restore function and improve the quality of life for the brain, patients with spinal cord injury, or stroke patients. Consult with the best doctors at the best neuro hospital in Patiala.

FAQ's

After gathering general information about the patient's health the Neurologist will review the patient's medical history, and do a complete physical examination. Then the doctor might order tests for your vision, smell odors and hear sounds, coordination, memory, strength, reflexes, ability to feel physical objects, reasoning, and puzzle-solving abilities.

A neurologist is a highly trained specialist who treats conditions of the brain, Spinal cord, nerves, and muscles. Consult with our best neurologist in Patiala to know more about neurological disorders and their treatment.

Stroke, migraine, Parkinson’s disease, Epilepsy, Alzheimer’s disease, Muscular Dystrophies and Peripheral Neuropathy are some common conditions in this vast and complex field.

The Neurologist will review your symptoms in-depth and ask you about any associated medical conditions that you may have. He will then proceed to do a detailed examination including a thorough assessment of the nervous system. The neurologist may order some investigations to arrive at a definitive diagnosis. Thereafter the plan of management, prognosis and follow-up visits will be discussed with you at length. Visit our neuro hospital in Patiala and get started with the treatment.

Rapid advances in the understanding of neurological disorders have translated into a highly effective treatment for almost all neurological conditions. Rapid strides in neuro-diagnostics have enabled early diagnosis and vastly improved outcomes.

Doctors diagnose Parkinson's disease by observing the symptoms and performing a physical examination. The doctor examines the patient's medical history, including whether they have any family members with Parkinson's, and will review their medical records.

If the doctor suspects a patient might have Parkinson's, they will likely order an MRI or PET scan. These scans can help determine if there are signs of brain damage in the area that produces Dopamine.

Dementia causes memory loss and other cognitive problems, but forgetting things is not the same. Dementia affects the brain, and it usually gets worse over time. 

Forgetting things can happen to people who do not have Dementia, too. For example, one might forget where they put their keys or what day it is if they are distracted or stressed by something else happening in their life. If you are experiencing these symptoms, visit the nearest neurology hospital in Patiala and consult with an expert.

Yes, an adult can improve their memory!

  • Learning new skills and information is a great way to improve memory. The brain has to form new connections when we learn something new, which makes it easier to remember that information later on. 

  • Regular exercise helps people to recall things better than those who do not exercise regularly. 

  • Get enough sleep to help the brain function at its best and make it easier to remember things during the day.

ADHD is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects the ability to pay attention, control impulses, and regulate emotions. While adults with ADHD can go on to have successful careers, children with ADHD often struggle in school and may have trouble getting along with friends. Treating the symptoms as they arise is essential because untreated symptoms can affect social relationships and academic performance.

The following tips can help in caring for an ADHD child:

  • Set up a reward system for completing chores or homework assignments without reminders.

  • Provide plenty of opportunities for kids to exercise.

  • Do not force a child into situations where he or she feels uncomfortable.
