Neurology is a branch of medicine focusing on the nervous system, primarily focusing on the brain and spinal cord. The nervous system is categorized into the central and peripheral nervous systems. The central nervous system comprises the brain and spinal cord thus controlling most of the voluntary and involuntary actions of the body. The peripheral nervous system comprises the somatic and autonomic nervous systems. Nerve connections from the sensory organs relay information from the receptors to the brain. Neurologists are medical experts who specialize in treating conditions which affect the brain, and spinal cord, such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Stroke, etc.

Our brain and spinal cord are surrounded by fluid called cerebrospinal fluid. Lumbar puncture is a procedure in which doctor collects a sample of cerebrospinal fluid which can be tested in the lab for diseases of the brain and spinal cord.
EEG or Electroencephalogram is a test that records the electrical activity of the brain and brain wave patterns.
Nerves control the muscles in the body by electrical signals and this impulse make the muscles react in specific ways. NCS or Nerve Conduction Study is a non-invasive test which measures how well and how fast the nerves can send electrical signals.
Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive disease of the brain that is characterized by dementia or loss of memory, behavioural changes, and loss of cognitive thinking, which eventually becomes severe affecting everyday simple tasks. The disease is named after Dr Alois Alzheimer who was the first person to notice some brain tissues changes like amyloid…
Whether you need to be admitted to our hospital for a serious neurological condition, or come in for a day procedure, our high precision diagnostic equipment help our neurology team to prescribe the best mode of treatment. That’s why patients trust Manipal Hospitals with precise diagnosis.
EMG or Electromyography is an invasive diagnostic procedure to assess the health of muscles and the nerve cells that control them (motor neurons). EMG results can reveal nerve dysfunction, muscle dysfunction or problems with nerve-to-muscle signal transmission.
After confirming stroke, a neurologist will prescribe a series of scans, tests, and examinations to identify the way a stroke has affected the neurological system. The standard battery of tests will include MRIs, CT scans, Ultrasound, blood draws, angiograms and echocardiograms. These tests will shed light on the severity of the stroke as well as the…
Some of the common neurological disorders are of the spinal cord, muscular dystrophy, myasthenia gravis, epilepsy, and even insomnia.
Patients suffering from brain trauma or disease that requires round the clock monitoring and care are admitted into the neuro intensive care. The neuro ICU has a team of neurological specialists and nurses that are trained and experienced in providing intensive care to patients.

A memory clinic is a place where people with neurological disorders are treated by neurologists and psychologists to improve their ability to function on a day to day basis. A major symptom of neurological diseases like dementia is the loss of memory that can severely affect an individual and those around them. Professional help after an early diagnosis…
Most strokes are acute and typically start suddenly and worsen rapidly. Sometimes a stroke may be preceded by a transient ischemic attack (TIA), a temporary stroke that reverses itself before it causes any lasting effects.
The dedicated premium lab at Manipal Hospital is equipped with powerful diagnostic intruments. The Electrophysiology lab boasts of high precision Electroencephalogram (EEG), video telemetry and Electromyography (EMG) scans. An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a test that measures and records the electrical activity of the brain. Here, electrical sensors…
The human mind is an intricate web of emotions, thoughts and behaviours. Similarly, the brain operates through electric signals that influence our actions. This intriguing combination is what our immensely talented neurologists and neuropsychologists at Manipal Hospitals handle on a daily basis.

Electromyography (EMG): This is a diagnostic procedure used to diagnose nerve or muscle dysfunction, problems with nerve-to-muscle signal transmission, etc.
Electroencephalogram (EEG): This is a diagnostic test used to diagnose epilepsy, brain tumour, brain damage, sleep disorders, stroke, and other brain disorders.
Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS): Nerve conduction study or nerve conduction velocity test is performed to identity nerve damage and conditions like herniated disk disease, chronic inflammatory polyneuropathy and neuropathy, sciatic nerve problems, etc.
Specialized Neuro Intensive Care Unit (neuro-ICU): A dedicated intensive care unit for patients with life-threatening neurological problems including ischaemic stroke, brain tumour, intracranial haemorrhage, spinal trauma, traumatic brain injury, etc.
Adult Neurology Services: We have well-advanced state-of-the-art facilities and sophisticated equipment like 3-Tesla MRI, PET-CT (Positron Emission Tomography and Computed Tomography) scans and molecular diagnostics for diagnosis and treatment of neurological disorders like ataxia, Alzheimer's disease, bell's palsy, brain tumours, cerebral aneurysm, head injury, meningitis, multiple sclerosis, stroke, Parkinson's disease, etc.
Lumbar Puncture: Also called a spinal tap, a lumbar puncture is a procedure used for collecting cerebrospinal fluid from your lower back (lumbar region) using a thin, hollow needle. The cerebrospinal fluid is further analysed in a lab to diagnose infections, bleeding, cancerous cells, and other diseases of the brain or spinal cord.
Memory Clinic: Memory clinics are used to diagnose and treat disorders like dementia, and improve the patient’s ability to function independently.
Headache clinic: It is a specialized clinic to deal with headache associated neurological diseases.
Paediatric Neurology Services: We have highly trained paediatricians, a well-equipped diagnostic lab, and state of the art diagnostic paraphernalia to diagnose and treat neurological disorders in children including epilepsy or seizers, chronic encephalopathies, movement disorders, neuromuscular disorders and diseases, brain and spinal cord malformations, diseases and disorders of the central nervous system, etc.
