Neurology is the branch of medicine that deals with the study and treatment of nervous system disorders. The nervous system itself is composed of the central nervous nervous system and the peripheral nervous system. The central nervous system is the brain and the spinal cord, while the peripheral nervous system is composed of all the other nerves and sensory receptors in the sense organs (such as the eyes, ears, skin etc.).
A doctor who specialises in neurology is called a neurologist, and surgeons who perform surgeries related to neurology are called neurosurgeons.
Why should you see a neurologist?
You may need to consult a nephrologist if you are facing organic conditions of the brain, spinal cord, muscles, and the nervous system. Neurologists assist the patients by examining the signs and conditions that have affected their mental state.
Here are six signs that tell it is time to visit neuro specialty hospital:
Chronic headaches

Why NH?
Cerebral stroke or ‘Brain Attack’ is the leading cause of disability and probably the third leading cause of death in India. At Narayana Health, we use a new technique known as a temporary endovascular bypass. There are interventional neurological procedures, which are used for the treatment of acute stroke or epilepsy and are practised abroad very routinely. We hope to increase awareness of stroke and its prevention so that the focus is on prevention rather than cure.
The network of hospitals under Narayana Health offers comprehensive packages for epileptic care services, cerebral stroke programmes including rehabilitation and evaluation of complex neuromuscular disorders for which a recommended course of neurological disorders treatment is followed.
Our neurologists are experienced in treating patients with neurological disorders and diseases including:
Autism, learning disabilities
Epilepsy, dizziness and fainting
Chronic tension or stress-related headache, migraine
Persistent backache and spine problems
Short-term memory loss and dementia
Parkinson’s disease, cerebral stroke
Cancers and tumours
Meningitis or brain fever
Sleep apnoea, semi-somnia, insomnia (sleep disorders)
Nerve-related issues (stress and nervous tensions) and trauma cases
Types of Neurology Diseases
Neurological disorders and diseases are caused by problems in either the central or peripheral nervous systems, or both. They can affect one, or many parts, of the nervous system such as the brain, spinal cord, nerves, nerve roots, neuromuscular junctions, the autonomic nervous system, and so on.
The causes of neurological disorders are varied. They can be caused by faulty genes, injuries, malnutrition, infection, or a response to an infection. Narayana Health is the best neurology hospital in India to treat all types of neurological disorders. There are more than 600 types of neurological diseases and disorders, but they can be broadly classified as follows-
Problems at the developmental stages of the nervous system such as spina bifida.
Genetic diseases such as muscular dystrophy and Huntington’s disease.
Degenerative or demyelinating diseases that cause the cells of the nervous system to die, or get damaged, over time such as Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease.
Problems with the blood supply to the brain causing cerebrovascular disease such as a stroke.
Memory loss and dementia
Spinal cord disorders
Speech and learning disorders
Headache disorders such as migraines
Pinched nerves
Tremors or uncontrolled movements
Sleep disorders
During the first meeting with a neurologist at Neuro Hospital, you will be undergoing a physical examination to look for any abnormality in speech, vision, cognitive abilities, coordination, strength, sensation and reflexes. Subsequently, diagnostic tests will be prescribed if required to better study and confirm the neurological problem if any.
At Narayana Health, the best neuro hospital in India, the most commonly prescribed tests for neurological disorders are
Imaging tests
Modern imaging techniques use different methods to obtain and study images of tissues within the body, in order to diagnose various problems. The most commonly used imaging techniques to diagnose neurological problems are Computed Tomography (CT or CAT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Single-Photon Emission (SPECT) scans. These scans help the neurologist to clearly observe and diagnose strokes, injuries, tumours, malformation or haemorrhage of blood vessels or abnormalities during the development of the brain.
Computed Tomography (CT): CT scans are extensively used to obtain two-dimensional images of the internal structures of the body. It involves the injection of a contrast dye into the bloodstream of the patient to help visualise the images better. A CT scan of the brain can be used to easily detect any structural abnormalities, strokes, haemorrhages, bone or blood vessel malformations or damage, amongst other disorders. Spinal CT scans can be used to diagnose problems such as a spinal fracture, herniated disc, or narrowing of the spinal canal. CT scans should be avoided by pregnant women as they involve radiation and may be harmful to the fetus. These scans are preferable for those patients who are unable to undergo an MRI scan.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): This type of imaging uses a very powerful magnetic field and r

Narayana Health Health for all

At Narayana Health, we are convinced that 'quality' and 'lowest cost' are not mutually exclusive when it comes to healthcare delivery. In fact, we are well on our way to demonstrate that we are not running our institution as just another number-only business, but are attractively placed to create an affordable, globally-benchmarked quality-driven healthcare services model. At Narayana Health, we will continue to trust what has worked for us in the past. We will keep our model predominantly asset-light; we will reinvest our accruals; we will engage with governments for land and help them achieve affordable healthcare promises made to their constituencies; we will rent premises from private owners and create small-to-large clinics within existing hospitals. As a result of this flexible approach, we will commission hospitals, medical facilities, and clinics across the breadth of this country, getting closer to patients and taking the promise of quality affordable healthcare to the doorstep of the country's millions. It is this exciting prospect that stokes my motivation to do bigger and better for the glory of the country that is mine.
