Comprehensive Neurology and Neurosurgery Care at Fortis Hospitals, Mumbai
Neurology is a branch of medicine dealing with the diseases and disorders of the nervous system. This complex system includes the brain, spinal cord and the nerves connecting them. Neurological complaints, diagnosis and treatment options have seen remarkable growth and improvements due to awareness and technological advances, which allow early discovery of conditions and subsequent cure. Top amongst these being stroke leading to paralysis, a common condition, however if medical help is sought within 30 minutes to 1 hour at the right centre, there is a high possibility of complete reversal. Brain tumours, convulsions, epilepsy, memory-related conditions and disorders related to balance and gait (walk) are few regular complaints. While many of these seem common ailments in the elderly, neurological afflictions can happen across age-groups.
