Overview & Features

Neurology specialty services offer treatment for diseases of the nervous system including disorders of the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, neuro-muscular junction and muscle. Neurology illnesses – once thought to be one of exotic diagnosis without effective treatment. The scenario has changed now. Many of the neurological problems can be treated if diagnosed early and many facilities are available to improve quality of life even though not fully curable.
