Neurology is the medical specialty dealing with disorders of the nervous system. The corresponding surgical specialty is neurosurgery. Neurological disorders are related to any abnormal functions of the nervous system due to various conditions resulting from brain abnormalities, chemical interference, or spinal cord disorders. The nervous system consists of the brain, spinal cord, and nerves that enable you to function and go about your daily activities. A neurological disorder can affect any of these vital functions of your body, resulting in the inability to function properly on a daily basis.
The Neurology Unit of Lily Hospitals is a referral centre for patients with neurologic diseases through specialized Clinical Neuroscience services.
At Lily Hospitals, we have (work in progress) a stroke unit specialized for the management of stroke with a stroke ICU which also has been adapted for management of serious stroke conditions.
The Neurology Unit works closely with our in-house Physiotherapist to facilitate neuro-rehabilitaion of our stroke patients.
The Neurologist is available on Saturdays and on special appointments to run this clinic.
