Neurological Conditions: Unmatched precision & accuracy at Apollo Sage Hospitals
It is no news that the human nervous system is a marvel in its own right and continues to fascinate modern science. In fact, the human nervous system is incredibly complex and sophisticated, and its study continues to influence many important discoveries and breakthroughs in medicine and neuroscience.
One of the most amazing aspects of neurology is the study of the nervous system which includes the brain, spine, and nerves. These are responsible for controlling and coordinating the body's functions including, body movements, perception, emotion, cognition, sensation, memory, and much more. And even a slight imbalance in the functioning of the nervous system can cause immense trouble to the person and it would require an expert in the field to help the person out of the situation. In medical terminology, it is the neurologist who is an expert in handling and treating the nervous system's disorders.
Why Choose Us?
Neurological disorders leave most patients with devastating disabilities and if not treated in time, they could definitely get incurable. But since the field of Neurology is constantly evolving with new research and advancements in technology it allows for improved diagnostic techniques and treatment options for patients with neurological disorders. It is for this reason that the Apollo Sage Hospital keeps a constant tab on the latest neurology-related discoveries and sophisticated equipment and machinery and ensures that they become a part of it as soon as possible.
In addition to this, the Apollo Sage Hospitals in Bhopal provides 24x7 neuro care, comprehensive diagnostic, and therapeutic Neurology services, as per the accepted medical guidelines. The hospital makes it a point to upgrade itself as well as its team of expert doctors on a regular basis in the field of neurology.
The hospital also ensures that its neurology specialists and technicians are trained to make the best use of the equipment for the benefit of the patients coming to the hospital.

It is under the supervision of these highly trained and skilled professionals that patients suffering from various neurological ailments or the nervous system, including the brain, spine, and nerves are finding relief. The multidisciplinary team works in close coordination with a team of radiation oncologists, anesthesiologists, critical care specialists, physicists, and more to deal with difficult neurological conditions.
No wonder, the hospital takes pride in having the pediatric neurologists, nerve specialist doctors & Best Neurologists in Bhopal.
Broadly speaking, the Neurology Hospital department can be split into four units
- Department of Neurocritical Care
- Department of Neurosurgery & Spine
- Department of Neurology & Stroke
- Rehabilitation Services and Behavioural Sciences
Now, moving ahead, let us check out the facilities available at the Apollo Sage Hospitals in Bhopal.
Facilities At Neurology Department
Apollo Sage Hospitals in Bhopal takes pride in having a well-equipped Neuro ICU, an integrated neuro-physiology laboratory, an interventional neuro radiology section, Bedside Electro Encephalogram (EEG) Monitoring, comprehensive stroke care under one roof, 3T MRI & CT Scan and more. These diagnostic modalities help neuro patients bounce back to normalcy with renewed energy and less pain.
One of the latest inclusion that is rarely found in the best neurology hospitals is the stereotactic biopsy or the aspiration. It is suitable for small, deep-seated tumors and requires "no opening of the skull” for treatment.
Disease & Conditions
Vertigo: When there occurs disturbance in the inner ear it gives a feeling of spinning or feeling off-balance. The fluid in the inner ear is responsible for maintaining our balance and spatial orientation.
Epilepsy: Epilepsy is a challenging condition to manage, and is responsible for causing seizures and short periods of unusual behaviour, sensations, loss of consciousness at times, and abnormal electrical activity in the brain. Epilepsy can cause a variety of symptoms, such as convulsions, loss of consciousness, and abnormal movements or sensations.
Spasticity: Living with spasticity can be challenging, as the condition causes stiffness and involuntary muscle spasms or contractions. It is generally an outcome of damage to the nervous system which could include a stroke, spinal injury or similar condition.
Neurofibromatosis: It is a genetic disorder that causes tumours to form on the nerves throughout the body. There are two main types of neurofibromatosis: type 1 (NF1) and type 2 (NF2) and the treatment may include surgical removal of tumours or other interventions to manage symptoms.
Dementia: This progressive neurological condition affects the human memory, ability to think and gives rise to behavioural issues as well. Those suffering from it could also have difficulty with language and communication, confusion, and more.
Tourette Syndrome: This neurological disorder generally occurs between the age group of 2 to 15 years, and is characterized by repetitive, involuntary movements and vocalizations called tics.
Lambert Eaton Syndrome (LES): LES is a rare autoimmune disorder that affects the neuromuscular junction. It is the point where nerves connect with muscles but when it gets damaged it affects the nerve cells that control the muscle movement.
Pediatric Neurosurgery: The stream focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and management of neurological conditions in children, ranging from newborns to adolescents. These conditions can include brain tumours, congenital malformations, spinal deformities, epilepsy, hydrocephalus, and traumatic brain injury, among others.
Treatment & Services
Brain & Spine Surgery: This specialized field deals with the diagnosis and treatment of conditions affecting the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. Today, with advanced techniques, brain and spine surgery is performed using minimally invasive techniques, which involve smaller incisions, less blood loss, and a faster recovery time.
Micro–Neurosurgery: It is a form of neurosurgery in which advanced surgical techniques and specialized tools are used to perform precise and minimally invasive procedures on delicate structures of the brain and nervous system.
Cyberknife: This robotic INAC is a highly precise non-invasive surgery which has real-time imaging guidance to treat those suffering from brain and spine disorders.
Neuro-Endoscopic Surgery: This minimally invasive surgery tool has a small, flexible tube with a camera and light attached to it. The equipment is used to perform a variety of neurological conditions and certain tumours in the brain and spine such as intraventricular and Pituitary Tumours & CSF Leaks.
Vertebroplasty: It is an image-guided, minimally invasive, nonsurgical therapy used to stabilize and strengthen the vertebra or spinal cord that has been weakened by conditions such as osteoporosis, or cancer.
Stereotactic Radiosurgery: In this, 3-D images are used to target high doses of radiation towards the affected area with minimal impact on the surrounding healthy tissue. The sophisticated equipment focuses small radiation beams on the tumour and a targeted radiation dose is delivered to the site where all the beams intersect.
So, now that you understand the importance of neurology and that its incredible nature and extent are still being unravelled, keep in touch with us to know more about the latest developments and breakthroughs in the field.
