Our services can be divided into three main areas:
This branch of medicine deals with treating disorders of the nervous systems, such as:
- Ischemic stroke (caused by lack of blood flow)
- Hemorrhagic stroke (caused by bleeding)
- Thrombotic stroke
- Emergency stroke
- Headaches and facial pain
- Vertigo and syncope
- Chronic pain
- Sleep disorders
- Movement disorders, including Parkinson’s disease
- Dementia and behavioral disorders
- Diabetic neuropathy
This branch specializes in the diagnosis and surgical treatment of disorders of the central and peripheral nervous system, such as:
- Brain and spinal cord tumors
- Brain and spinal cord injuries
- Interventional pain management and neuromodulation
This branch offers diagnostic services to people of all ages with a nervous system disorder. Neurophysiologic studies include:
- Electroencephalography (EEG), which covers both routine and 24-hour video EEG monitoring
- Polysomnography (PSG) or sleep lab studies
- Electromyogram (EMG) or nerve conduction studies (NCS)
- Neurosonology, including carotid doppler and transcranial doppler (TCD)
- Neuroradiology, with techniques such as:
- CT scanning which provides more detailed information on head injuries, strokes, brain tumors and other brain diseases.
- Advanced 3D magnetic resonance imaging, which comes with acoustic reduction technology to drastically reduce humming sounds and make examinations easier, and other advanced technologies to provide high-definition images of the brain that are necessary for treatment.
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain, which uses a powerful magnetic field, radio waves and a computer to produce detailed pictures of the brain and other cranial structures that are clearer and more detailed than other imaging methods.
- Magnetic resonance angiogram (MRA), a type of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan that uses a magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy to provide pictures of blood vessels inside the brain.
- Selective cerebral angiography is a diagnostic test that uses x-rays and an iodine-containing contrast material to produce pictures of blood vessels in the brain selectively via catheter.
- Computerized transaxial angiography (CTA), a less invasive diagnostic test that uses intravenous contrast injection to identify blood vessels in the brain and neck. This test can be done within half an hour.
