Neurology is a sub-speciality of the Department of Neurosciences, dedicated to offering non-surgical modalities for the diagnosis and treatment of the wide gamut of diseases and ailments that affect the central and peripheral nervous system. The former includes the brain and the spinal cord, whereas the latter includes other neural elements and sensory receptors. 


Backed by best in class diagnostic modalities, our expert neurologists can diagnose the most complex cases by analysing the medical history of the patients and conducting a detailed examination to assess the patient’s overall health. The department has a dedicated laboratory where 

  • Computed Tomography (CT) scan

  • Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS)
  • Electromyography (EMG)
  • Lumbar Puncture


We offer comprehensive treatment plans for a wide spectrum of neurological conditions. These include therapy, medication and non-invasive interventions which are integrated with the world-class technology and expertise of our neurologists. Various conditions treated by our experts include:

  • Cerebrovascular disease, which is an umbrella term used for a group of conditions that affect the blood vessels present in the brain and impact the flow of blood to the latter. Common cerebrovascular diseases include stroke and atherosclerosis.
  • Demyelinating disorders, which are a group of conditions that damage the protective layer of the nerves, are known as the myelin sheath. These include conditions like multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and Transverse Myelitis.
  • Headache disorders are marked by recurrent and persistent headaches. Some common types of headaches include sinus headaches, cluster headaches, tension headaches, and migraine.
  • Infections of the brain and peripheral nervous system
  • Movement disorders refer to a group of neurological conditions, marked by unintended and abnormal movements such as Parkinson's disease, Tourette Syndrome and Dystonia. 
  • Neurodegenerative disorders are caused by the inability of the nerve cells to function efficiently. These are usually progressive and include conditions like Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (Lou Gehrig's disease)
  • Seizure disorders are triggered by disturbed brain cell activity. These include conditions like epilepsy
  • Spinal cord disorders like tumors, abscesses, hematoma, and nerve compression due to spinal stenosis.
  • Speech and language disorders

  • Skull base surgery, to remove 
  • Functional neurosurgery, that aims at restoring neurological function by targeting anatomical structures
  • Cortical mapping, which is a type of electrocorticography. 
  • Peripheral nerve surgery
  • Radiosurgery, which involves the use of ionizing radiations to target and destroy cancer cells 
  • Deep brain stimulation for conditions like Parkinson’s disease and tremors
  • Anterior microdiscectomy, fusion, posterior decompression and laminoplasty
  • Thoracic, anterior and posterior decompression, fixation, minimally invasive techniques 
  • MISS (Minimally invasive Techniques) Microdiscectomy, decompression, Lachesis, TLIF, Vertebroplasty
