Neurology (Diagnosis and treatment of nervous system disorders)

Neurology

Neurologists diagnose, treat and manage disorders that affect the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord) and the peripheral nervous system (nerves and muscles which activate movement and transmit sensation from all parts of the body to the brain). At Dubai London Hospital, our highly trained specialists deal with complex conditions of the brain and spinal cord (the central nervous system), peripheral nerves (nerves connecting the brain and spine to the organs, like the lungs or liver), and muscles. Because the nervous system is complex, a neurologist may specialize in specific ailments and a broad range of conditions, including Alzheimer’s disease, diabetic neuropathy, headaches, and nerve damage.

Our team of skilled neurologists and neurosurgeons work in tandem and collectively evaluate symptoms and decide on a treatment plan, including the option of surgery, using the lumbar puncture procedure to help diagnose meningitis encephalitis, myelitis leukaemia, and other autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis (MS) and dementia.

Electromyography is also used to assess how well a person’s muscles respond to electrical stimulation and aids our team in the diagnosis of neuromuscular diseases, such as myasthenia gravis and ALS, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, peripheral neuropathy and neuromuscular diseases.

Our neurologists use electroencephalograms (EEG) to measure and record electrical activity in the brain. These results identify abnormal electrical activity in the brain and diagnose certain conditions, such as epilepsy, seizures, brain tumours, sleeping problems.

Dubai London Hospital’s full-fledged laboratory helps hasten diagnosis and treatment of neurological disorders.
