Neurology department at Metro hospital, Faridabad is concerned with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of Neurological disorders, such as stroke, epilepsy, vertigo, Parkinson, Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia, dystonia, multiple sclerosis, migraine, sleep disorders, and other neuromuscular conditions.
Neurology is a branch of bioscience that's involved with disorders and diseases of the system a nervosum. The term neurology comes from a mix of 2 words - "neuron" that means nerve and "logia" that means "the study of".
There are around 100 billion neurons withinthe brain, capable of generating their own impulses and of receiving and transmission impulses from close cells. Neurology involves the study of:
The central system, the peripheral system and therefore the involuntary system. Structural and useful disorders of the system starting from birth defects through to chronic diseases like Parkinsonism and Alzheimer's disease.
Our department includes the team of experienced and efficient neurologists (best neurologist in Faridabad) who offers cutting-edge diagnostic approaches, including advanced neuroimaging technologies, and best of treatment modalities. The center is facilitated by 1.5 Tesla MRI and 660-500 Slice CT Scan.

What Does a Neurologist Treat?
some of the conditions a neurologist treats are as follows
Spinal cord injury
Seizures and etc.
A stroke is sudden brain attack , also known in common parlance as paralysis attack.
Stroke occurs when a blood vessel in the brain ruptures and bleeds, or when there’s a blockage in the blood supply to the brain. The rupture or blockage prevents blood and oxygen from reaching the brain’s tissues.
Without oxygen, brain cells and tissue become damaged and begin to die within minutes.
What are the symptoms of brain stroke?
Symptoms of a stroke show up in the body parts controlled by the damaged areas of the brain.
The sooner a person having a stroke gets care, the better their outcome is likely to be. For this reason, it’s helpful to know the signs of a stroke so you can act quickly. Stroke symptoms can include sudden onset of one or more of following
1)paralysis 2)numbness or weakness in the arm, face, and leg, especially on one side of the body
Trouble speaking or understanding speech
vision problems, such as trouble seeing in one or both eyes with vision blackened or blurred, or double vision
6)loss of balance or coordination
8)severe, sudden headache with an unknown cause.
A stroke requires immediate medical attention. If you think you or someone else is having a stroke, immediately contact nearest stroke ready hospital ( one with atleast a CT machine and a neurologist )
Tell me some easy way to recognize stroke and what to do in case of a stroke.
As an aid to memory, the word FAST may be remembered as a mnemoneic to identify stroke.
F stands for face- is there any sudden asymmetry of face?
A stands for Arm - is there sudden onset weakness in one arm?
S stands for speech - is there sudden onset difficulty in speaking clearly?
T : stands for time - if the answer to above ( F, A or S) is yes, do not waste time and rush the patient to nearest stroke ready hospital.
Prompt treatment is key to prevent Stroke. In many cases, specialised treatments can be given by neurologist only in the first few hours after stroke ( first 3 to 6 hours). These treatments can potentially reverse the stroke.The sooner the treatment is begun, the better the recovery.
So, it is important to rush to nearest stroke ready hospital without wasting any time if stroke symptoms occur.
Remember, it is better to be safe than sorry when dealing with a stroke.
Remember FAST and stay safe.
Our Department Highlights
Pioneer work has been done in the field of stoke management. We have successfully thrombolysed more than 275 patients in our hospital.

Know about Multiple Sclerosis By Neurology Department, Metro Hospital Faridabad
What is Multiple Sclerosis?
Multiple Sclerosis is a Neurologic disorder that affects the Central Nervous System (CNS). The CNS includes the brain and spinal cord. In Multiple Sclerosis, the body’s immune system begins to attack the nerves in the CNS. Nerves are like wires carrying information to and from the brain. Most nerves are covered with a layer called myelin. In Multiple Sclerosis, the immune system attacks the myelin. Most people with Multiple Sclerosis have a normal or near-normal life span.
Who gets Multiple Sclerosis?
Multiple Sclerosis often strikes young people who are in their twenties-thirties. It is also more frequent in females with 2:1 ratio.
What causes Multiple Sclerosis?
Multiple Sclerosis is an autoimmune disease whose cause or trigger is unknown. The result is Multiple Sclerosis- multiple because many scattered areas of brain and spinal cord are affected, sclerosis because spots or patches of scar tissue formed over the damaged myelin.
What are its symptoms?
Symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis very greatly depending upon where the damage to the brain tissue as occurred in the central nervous system. Symptoms may include:
Blurred or double vision
Problems with bowel and bladder functions and many more.
These symptoms may occur in any combination and can vary from very mild to very severe.
Is Multiple Sclerosis easily diagnosed?
Multiple Sclerosis is not always easy to diagnose because early symptoms are so common with other CNS related disorders and there is no single definitive neurological or laboratory test that can confirm or rule out Multiple Sclerosis. However recent advances in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) are helping to clarify diagnosis.
Can Multiple Sclerosis be treated?
Yes, to a degree of stopping the further damage to myelin and reducing the progression of disease. Many medications are available today to help people with Multiple Sclerosis. These work to slow the progress of the disease and reduce the number of attacks and are called disease modifying treatments. Other medications can be helpful in managing some of the symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis, such as fatigue, stiffness, pain bladder or bowl problems, or mood difficulties. Other treatments can also help shorten the course of symptoms during an attack.
