The Department of Neurology is one of the oldest neurology departments in the city of Coimbatore. Established in 1989, by Dr. K. Asokan, Chief Neurologist of the Hospital, the department has pioneered the management of stroke, epilepsy, headache, nerve and muscle disease with necessary injections, neuro immunological disorders, and neuro degenerative disease.
The Department of Neurology uses cutting edge medical technology and techniques to treat patients with neurological disorders. Our EEG & EMG Lab is well equipped and run by expert personnel and an assistant medical officer, who are available around the clock. Best suitable injections are administered to treat neuromuscular disorders.
We are also renowned for our expertise at treating Guillain Barre Syndrome.
Neurologists at Sri Ramakrishna Hospital use thrombolysis to treat ischaemic strokes. Intravenous, intracranial Thrombolysis can be done during any time of the day, with MRI facilities throughout the day.
We also concentrate on quality of life once danger is averted. Specialised stroke rehabilitation is used to help patients recover from the effects of a stroke. Our neurologists work with a huge team of Physiotherapists, Psychologists, Pathologists and many more, to ensure patients have the best chance of complete recovery.
The Department of Neurology has also had great success with treating autoimmune encephalitis, multiple sclerosis, and other autoimmune disorders through the use of immunotherapy. In addition to this, neurologists closely support the Department of Neurosurgery in treating a host of conditions ranging from trigeminal neuralgia to tumours.
