Our Neurology Services Include

Neurology:

The hospital aims to provide world-class neurological care and treatment to all.

Epilepsy:

Epilepsy is a neurological disorder marked by recurrent seizures, which result from abrupt, excessive electrical activity in the brain. The symptoms of seizures can vary widely, depending on the specific type of seizure. Contributing factors to epilepsy may include genetic predisposition, brain injuries, or structural abnormalities in the brain.

Effective management of epilepsy involves a tailored treatment approach. Healthcare providers typically consider various options such as medication, surgical interventions, and lifestyle modifications to address individual needs. Developing a personalized treatment plan in collaboration with healthcare professionals is crucial for those living with epilepsy, as it can significantly enhance seizure control and overall quality of life.

Stroke:

In the event of a stroke, immediate recognition and action are crucial. A stroke is a medical emergency characterized by the interruption or reduction of blood supply to the brain, leading to the death of brain cells. Symptoms can manifest suddenly and may include weakness or numbness on one side of the body, difficulty speaking or understanding speech, vision problems, and severe headaches. There are two primary types of stroke: ischemic stroke, caused by a blood vessel blockage, and hemorrhagic stroke, resulting from bleeding in the brain.

Swift and appropriate treatment is essential for stroke patients. The primary goal is to restore blood flow to the brain promptly, accomplished through medication or, in certain cases, surgical intervention. Recognizing the signs of a stroke is paramount, and seeking immediate medical attention is imperative. Time plays a critical role in stroke management, and receiving prompt care significantly enhances outcomes, minimizing the risk of long-term disability or death. If you or someone you know exhibits symptoms of a stroke, do not delay – seek emergency medical assistance without hesitation.

Understanding Headaches and Migraines:

Headaches, a prevalent condition, entail pain or discomfort in the head or neck region. Various factors contribute to their occurrence, such as stress, tension, sinus pressure, and dehydration. Migraines represent a more intense form of headache, often accompanied by additional symptoms like nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light and sound, and visual disturbances. These migraines are linked to abnormal brain activity and can be triggered by factors such as stress, hormonal fluctuations, specific foods, and changes in sleep patterns.

Managing headaches and migraines involves a multi-faceted approach. Treatment options encompass over-the-counter or prescription medications, lifestyle adjustments, and stress-reducing techniques. Consulting with a healthcare provider is crucial to tailor the treatment plan to individual symptoms and needs. By collaborating with a healthcare professional, individuals can find an effective course of action to alleviate and manage their headaches or migraines, enhancing overall well-being.

Parkinson`s Disease and other Movement Disorder:

Ruby Hospital is committed to providing comprehensive care for individuals facing movement disorders. Parkinson’s disease, a neurodegenerative condition, is a focal point, involving the gradual degeneration of dopamine-producing neurons, leading to challenges in movement, including tremors, stiffness, and coordination difficulties.

In addition to Parkinson’s, our specialists at Ruby Hospital address other movement disorders like essential tremor, characterized by involuntary shaking, particularly in the hands, which intensifies with movement. Dystonia, causing involuntary muscle contractions and abnormal postures, is also within our expertise. Furthermore, we address Huntington’s disease, a genetic disorder impacting movement, behavior, and cognition.

Our multidisciplinary approach to treatment includes various modalities such as medication, physical therapy, and, when necessary, surgical interventions. At Ruby Hospital, we understand the importance of tailoring treatment plans to each individual, working closely with healthcare providers to manage symptoms and enhance the overall quality of life for those facing movement disorders.

Multiple Sclerosis:

At Ruby Hospital, we understand the complex nature of multiple sclerosis (MS), a chronic autoimmune disease impacting the central nervous system. This condition arises when the immune system targets and damages the protective myelin sheath around nerve fibers, leading to inflammation. This disruption in the communication between the brain and the body manifests in a diverse array of symptoms, including fatigue, muscle weakness, numbness, tingling, and challenges with vision, coordination, and balance.

Recognizing MS as a progressive disease, our dedicated team at Ruby Hospital is committed to providing comprehensive care. Our approach to treatment involves a combination of medications to manage symptoms and slow the disease’s progression, as well as personalized physical therapy. Additionally, lifestyle modifications, such as stress management and regular exercise, are integral components of our patient-centered care.

Individuals with MS are encouraged to collaborate closely with our healthcare providers at Ruby Hospital to develop a personalized treatment plan. This ensures that interventions align with individual needs and goals, fostering a holistic approach to managing the complexities of multiple sclerosis and improving overall quality of life.

Neuropathy and Muscle Disorder:

Neuropathy is a condition that affects the nerves and can cause symptoms such as tingling, numbness, and pain in the affected area. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including diabetes, vitamin deficiencies, and nerve damage due to injury or infection. Treatment for neuropathy can include medication, physical therapy, and lifestyle modifications.

Muscle disorders, also known as myopathies, are conditions that affect the muscles and can cause weakness, stiffness, and muscle pain. They can be caused by genetic mutations, autoimmune disorders, or certain medications. Treatment for muscle disorders can include medication to manage symptoms, physical therapy to improve muscle strength and flexibility, and lifestyle modifications, such as a healthy diet and regular exercise.

It is important to work with a healthcare provider to determine the underlying cause of neuropathy or muscle disorder and develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses individual symptoms and needs. In some cases, these conditions can be managed effectively with treatment, allowing individuals to maintain their quality of life.

Dementia:

Dementia is a term used to describe a group of neurological disorders that cause a decline in cognitive function, such as memory, thinking, and reasoning. It is often associated with aging, but can also occur in younger individuals’ due to factors such as genetics, head injury, or substance abuse. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia, accounting for 60-80% of cases. Other types of dementia include vascular dementia, Lewy body dementia, and frontotemporal dementia. Symptoms of dementia can include memory loss, confusion, difficulty communicating, and changes in mood or behavior. While there is no cure for dementia, there are medications and lifestyle modifications that can help manage symptoms and improve quality of life. It is important to work with a healthcare provider to develop a personalized treatment plan that meets the individual needs of those living with dementia and their caregivers.

Cerebral Palsy:

Cerebral palsy (CP) is a group of neurological disorders that affect movement and muscle coordination. It is caused by damage to the developing brain, usually before or during birth, but can also occur in the first few years of life. CP can affect people in different ways, and symptoms can range from mild to severe. Common symptoms include muscle stiffness or spasticity, difficulty with fine motor skills, and difficulty with balance and coordination. Some individuals with CP may also have intellectual disability, seizures, or vision or hearing problems.

There is no cure for CP, but treatment can help manage symptoms and improve quality of life. Treatment may include physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, medication, and assistive devices, such as braces or wheelchairs. It is important to work with a healthcare provider to develop a personalized treatment plan that meets the individual needs of those living with CP and their caregivers. With appropriate care and support, individuals with CP can lead fulfilling lives and achieve their goals.

Neurosurgery is the surgical treatment of disorders impacting the central nervous system – the brain, spine, and nerves. Neurosurgeons have extensive training to treat conditions such as:

Neurosurgeries are extremely precise, complex procedures. Success depends on the surgeon’s skill, experience, and use of leading-edge technology.
