Neurology

Neurology, which consists of Neuro (Nerve) and logio (Study) as the word meaning, is neuroscience, as the name suggests. Studies conducted in the field of dysfunctional diseases, including muscle diseases that affect the entire function of the body, mainly due to the disorders of the nervous system, are the fields of activity of Neurology. The medical specialty that is responsible in this field is the Neurology specialty. Headache, dizziness, cerebrovascular diseases, demyelinating diseases (multiple sclerosis), epilepsy, neurodegenerative diseases (Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease), neuromuscular diseases, peripheral nervous system diseases are subjects that require diagnosis and treatment in the field of neurology.

All ailments of the central, autonomic and peripheral systems are in the domain of Neurology.

Tests such as EMG – EEG – SSEP – VEP – BERA, which are performed to diagnose some problems, are also carried out by this unit.

EEG (Electroencephalography): It enables the functioning of electrical signal states in the brain to be transferred to the image with the help of an EEG device and a computer. Thanks to these images, it is determined where the disruption is and creates a source for treatment. This EEG output is called an electrocephalogram.

EMG (Electromigorarphy): It is used to measure the nerve conduction status and speed of sensory and motor nerve endings.

Some of the neurological diseases are as follows:

  • Brain tumors
  • Dystonia
  • Meningioma,
  • Restless leg syndrome
  • Tremor Disease (Essential Tremor)
  • Parkinson
  • Migraine
  • Alzheimer's
  • Epilepsy
  • Stroke
  • Meningitis
  • Dementia
  • Neuromuscular diseases
  • Spinal disorders
  • Dyskinesias
  • Diseases related to sleep disorders
  • Sleep apnea
  • Myasthenia gravis (where muscles are weakened and easily fatigued)
  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
  • Multiple screlose
  • Cerebrovascular diseases.
  • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
  • Muscular diseases such as muscular dystrophy
  • Brain aneurysms
  • Neck hernia,
  • Vertigo (dizziness)
