Center of Excellence: Neurology 


Neurology is the branch of medicine that focuses on the disorders of the nervous system, which include nerves, blood vessels, muscles and the brain. The main areas of neurology are the autonomic, central and peripheral nervous systems. 


Another major clinical branch of neurology is neuro-oncology. Neuro-oncology focuses on managing diseases such as primary brain tumors, metastases and the neurologic complications arising out of cancer.


Disorders of the nervous system often affect infants and young children and adults differently. Pediatric neurologists manage neurological disorders in those younger than 18 years. Some of the conditions that young people and children include: epilepsy, learning disabilities, cerebral palsy, complex metabolic diseases, and nerve and muscle disorders.

  • Diseases caused by mutated genes, such as Huntington's disease and muscular dystrophy

  • Spina bifida

  • Degenerative diseases in which nerve cells are damaged or die, such as Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease

  • Diseases of the blood vessels such as stroke

  • Injuries to the spinal cord and brain

  • Seizure disorders, such as epilepsy

  • Infections, such as meningitis

  • Seizures.

  • Difficulty reading and writing.

  • Partial or complete loss of sensation.

  • Unexplained pain.


How Are Neurological Conditions Diagnosed?

  • Computed tomography scan (CT or CAT scan)

  • Electro encephalon gram (EEG)

  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)

  • Electrodiagnostic tests which include electromyography (EMG) and nerve conduction velocity (NCV)

  • Positron emission tomography (PET)

  • Arteriogram (angiogram)

Some Key Neurological Conditions Treated the Best Neuro Hospital at Whitefield, Bangalore


Stroke: Stroke takes place after the blood supply to the brain gets interrupted. Lack of blood supply deprives the brain tissues of the required oxygen and other necessary nutrients, pushing brain cells towards death. Some of the symptoms of a stroke include difficulty in speaking and understanding, headache, problems in seeing with one or both eyes, paralysis or numbness of the face, arm or leg.


A stroke warrants immediate & emergency medical attention. At Manipal Whitefield, we offer round the clock care for Thrombolysis. Our expert team of clinicians comprises neurology-trained physiotherapists, language and speech therapists for speech recovery and rehabilitation specialists who help in speedy recovery of patients.


Brain Hemorrhage: Bursting of an artery in the brain leads to bleeding in and around the brain, causing Brain Hemorrhage. Symptoms of brain hemorrhage are often similar to that of a stroke. Brain hemorrhage is caused by elevated blood pressure, abnormally weak or dilated (aneurysm) blood vessels.


Manipal Hospitals is the best neurosurgery hospital in Whitefield, Bangalore, equipped with an expert and dedicated team of neurosurgeons and state-of-the-art ICU team for close monitoring and handling any kind of emergency due to bleeding in the brain.

Our alert emergency team is renowned for providing immediate care of patients presenting with seizures. We are also equipped with a separate ICU and EEG monitoring team for providing dedicated care for epilepsy cases.
