Neuro Sciences

The Neurology division of this hospital has a state-of -art neurophysiology laboratory equipped with an 18-Channel computerised Electroencephalograph(EEG), 2-Channel Electromyograph(EMG) and Evoked Potential(EP) System which is capable of doing Nerve Conduction Studies(NCV) of motor and sensory nerves. The diagnosis and management of various neurological disorders is done by our full time neurologists with the help of various studies viz:-

  1. Nerve Conduction studies for neuropathies, Nerve injuries etc. which include F-response, H-reflex and Blink reflex.
  2. Electromyography for muscle disorders, motor neuron disease and tremor analysis.
  3. Repetitive nerve stimulation study for myaesthenia gravis and other neuromuscular junction disorders.
  4. Evoked Potentials which includes, somatosensory(SEP) Visual(VEP), Brainsterm Auditory (BAER) to assess various Central Nervous System pathways.

Neurosurgery

The Neurosurgery division has state of art Operation Theatures, having laminar flow system (zero bacteria), C-Arm Image Intensifier, Operating Microscope and other instruments of international standards.
Many complicated surgical interventions have been done at Central Hospital Neuro Care Centre by full time neuro surgeons using Micro neuro surgical techniques such as :-

  1. Tumour Surgery: Malignant and benign tumours including Glioma, Meningioma, Posterior fossa including C.P. angle tumours.
  2. Orbital Tumours.
  3. Spine Surgery: Anterior approach (Median corpectomy with Grafting and Plating) for cervical spondylotic myelopathy, Cervical disc and Traumatic spine features, Trans-thoracic approach for Dorsal Spinal Lesions, Spinal tumours-intramedullary Intradural extra medullary and Extradural, Microdiscoidectomy.
  4. Head injuries-all grades and types.
  5. Paediatric Neurusurgery-growing skull fracture, Paeditric tumours, Hydrocephalus, Menin gomyelocele and Tethered Cord syndrome etc.
  6. Vascular Lesions-Vascular Malformations and Aneurysms.
  7. Trans Sphenoid approach for Pituitary Tumours.
  8. Micro-Neurosurgery for various brain and spinal Lesions.
