  • Headache Disorders

    Pain in any region of the head is called a headache. It may involve one or both sides of the head and may radiate to the neck and shoulders. You may experience dull pressure, a throbbing sensation or sharp pain that may last anywhere between an hour to days. In some cases, it may indicate a serious underlying disease.

  • Memory Disorders

    Mild forms of memory loss are experienced by everyone, but incidence often increases with age. This type of memory loss does not usually adversely affect activities of daily living. However, a memory disorder which occurs as a result of illness may be significant enough to hamper your daily routine.

  • Nerve Disorders

    The body’s nervous system consists of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. The nerves act as messengers, coordinating signals for all the functions of the body such as movement, thoughts and sensations, between the brain and the various parts of the body. Any injury to the nerves or the nervous system, especially the spinal cord can cause serious impairments such as paralysis, weakness, numbness of an area and pain.

  • Sleep Disorders

    Sleep is essential for your physical health and emotional wellbeing. Everyone experiences occasional sleeping problems, but if you experience problems sleeping repeatedly, it could indicate an underlying health problem. Sleep disorders are problems associated with sleeping, including difficulty falling or staying asleep through the night, feeling sleepy during the day, or waking up feeling exhausted.

  • Cerebrovascular & Seizure Disorders

    A seizure is a sudden, brief attack caused by changes in the brain’s electrical activity. It is quite common in people with a brain tumor. During a seizure, a person’s brain cells misfire releasing electrical energy in an uncontrolled manner. This results in a sudden buildup of energy through the brain, causing unconsciousness and contractions of the muscles.

  • Neurophysiologic & Neurovascular
    Testing

    Neurophysiologic tests are performed to assess the functioning of nervous system. They are used to provide data for neurosurgical planning, evaluate neuromuscular symptoms and localize epileptic seizures.

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

    Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a disease characterized by the gradual breakdown and eventual death of nerve cells (motor neurons), leading to muscle weakness and impaired physical function.

  • Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease

    Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease (CMT) is a neurological disorder characterized by damage to the peripheral nervous system which carries signals from the brain to various parts of the body and vice versa.

  • Muscular Dystrophy

    Muscular dystrophy is a group of genetic disorders characterized by muscle weakness and progressive loss of muscle tissue.

  • Myopathy

    Myopathy is a group of neuromuscular disorders, characterized by muscle weakness and dysfunction of muscle fibers, caused by abnormalities in the structure and metabolism of muscle cells.

  • Peripheral Neuropathy

    The peripheral nervous system transmits signals from the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body. Any disruption in the normal functioning of the peripheral nervous system can result in numbness, pain, and weakness in your hands and feet .

  • Trigeminal Neuralgia/Hemifacial Spasm

    Trigeminal neuralgia and hemifacial spasm are cranial nerve disorders in which the trigeminal nerve and the facial nerve are compressed as they exit from the brainstem.

  • Blepharospasm

    A blepharospasm is a neurological condition characterized by involuntary twitching or blinking of the eye due to a spasm of the muscles that control your eyelid. The condition affects women more than men and tends to run in families.

  • Spasticity

    Spasticity is a condition characterized by abnormal muscle tightness due to prolonged muscle contraction. The condition commonly involves the leg muscles; however, any muscle can be affected. Spasticity can be painful, disfiguring, and disabling.

  • Cervical Dystonia

    Dystonia defines a group of movement disorders characterized by slow repetitive involuntary muscle spasms and contractions. Cervical dystonia, also referred to as spasmodic torticollis or torticollis, is a type of dystonia and a painful condition in which neck muscles contract involuntarily causing the head to twist or pull to one side. The condition can also cause the head to tilt forward or backward uncontrollably.

  • Myositis (including Polymyositis and Dermatomyositis)

    Myositis is a group of rare diseases defined by inflamed muscles, which can cause prolonged muscle weakness, pain, and fatigue. Polymyositis and dermatomyositis are the two common types of myositis.
