The Department of Neuro Sciences at Starcare Hospital is incorporated with a super-specialty infrastructure to provide world-class Neurology Treatment, starting from diagnosis to rehabilitation. Our hospital has the best Neurologists in the healthcare industry to treat people suffering from nervous system disorders. We provide comprehensive Neurology Treatment to treat epilepsy, stroke, multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson's disease. Our consultants, neurologist Dr. Sudeep Balakrishnan, Neurosurgeon Dr. Anoop Narendran, and spine specialist Dr. Sreejith, have high experience in treating people suffering from different levels of complexity.

Epilepsy: It's a brain disorder that causes seizures. It may occur due to a genetic disorder, a brain injury such as trauma or stroke, or an imbalance of nerve signaling chemicals. A person may experience abnormal behavior, symptoms, and sensations, including loss of consciousness. One may experience jerking movements of the arms and legs and stiffness of the body. It has a severe effect on memory. People may have difficulty remembering words, facts, and things that happened to them. At Starcare Hospital, our Neurology Doctors proceed with Epilepsy Treatment with a diagnostic procedure such as an EEG to check for any unusual electrical activity in the brain that can happen in epilepsy patients. Our Neurologists provide comprehensive treatment, including medications, and surgeries are recommended depending on the stage of epilepsy disorder. In critical conditions, our Neurology Specialists prescribe medications for lifelong to stabilize and revive their good health condition.

Stroke: It's a sudden onset of focal neurological deficits due to lack of blood supply or hemorrhage in the brain, causing symptoms lasting more than 24 hours. A brain attack occurs due to a blocked or ruptured artery. Stroke symptoms include trouble walking, speaking, and understanding, and paralysis or numbness of the face, arm, or leg. We, Starcare Hospital, a Neurology Hospital in Calicut, offer treatment inclusive of medication such as clot buster, anticoagulant, and statins to reduce brain damage and stabilize the health condition. Our Neurologists offer therapies such as speech, physical, and stroke rehab to accelerate the effectiveness of Neuro Treatment. People who suffer from stroke show progress in health improvement through continuous medication.

Classification of stroke:

1) Hemorrhagic stroke:

It's the most common stroke in children. This occurs when a blood vessel in or near the brain ruptures, causing bleeding. The symptoms are raised ICP ( increased intracranial pressure), headache, vomiting, seizures, and diffuse encephalopathy. Our Neurologists prescribe medication such as antifibrinolytic drugs that promote blood clotting may be given. In critical conditions, people who need emergency care are recommended to undergo Neurosurgery to repair the ruptured blood vessel. Our hospital has a team of highly experienced Neurosurgeons to provide the best stroke treatment possible.

2) Arterial ischemic stroke:

It happens when the blood flow to the brain is blocked due to a clot called a thrombus in one of the blood vessels in the brain. The symptoms are focal neurological signs, hemiparesis, mono paresis, cranial N palsy, ataxia, aphasia, visual field loss, focal seizures, and new onset encephalopathy. Our hospital is incorporated with the latest equipment to treat severe ischaemic strokes, performing emergency procedures "thrombectomy" to remove blood clots and help restore blood flow to the brain.

Multiple Sclerosis: It's an autoimmune disease in which the central nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves, are affected. It may be caused by genetic or environmental factors. Symptoms include vision loss, fatigue, and impaired coordination. Neurologists in our hospital provide stroke treatment, including physiotherapy, medications like anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive drugs to slow down the disease's progression. At Starcare Hospital, our dietician works collaboratively with Neurology Doctors to plan personalized food diet charts that include foods with vitamins and minerals and recommend regular exercise to stabilize the condition and facilitate a quicker recovery.

Parkinson's disease: It's a disorder that affects body movement, often including tremors. The nerve cells damage the brain and cause dopamine levels to drop, leading to the symptoms like slow movement, stiffness, and loss of balance. Our hospital has a healthcare facility to diagnose Parkinson's disease, including neurological examinations with the standard procedure to offer precise and effective Neurology Treatment. Our Neurologist, Dr. Sudeep Balakrishnan, diagnoses the prevailing symptoms and provides Parkinson's treatment with medications such as dopamine promoter, antidepressants, and anti-tremor to stabilize the health condition and stop the further progression of the illnesses. Based on the patient's health condition and stage of neurology treatment, supportive therapies such as physiotherapy are provided to the patient. Exercising can help improve health by getting the body moving to build strength, balance, and coordination.

Our Neurosurgeon, Dr. Anoop Narendran, specializes in performing Neurosurgical spine surgery, which involves diagnosing and treating the spine and spinal cord. Laminectomy is one of the most common procedures used to treat spinal issues on the nerves of the lower back. We have the best team of neurology specialists, comprising Neurologists and Neurosurgeons, to provide Laminectomy treatment. Symptoms like trouble walking and bending and problems with bowel and bladder function can be seen. The surgery involves a minimally invasive incision on the back of the spine that allows the surgeon to remove vertebral bone(lamina) and thickened ligaments that are pressing on the nerves of the low back. Our hospital is incorporated with state-of-the-art infrastructure to perform Neuro Surgery, ensuring safe treatment, better results, and a low infection rate.
