Our neurology department at Gisbir Hospital examinate and treats In general the brain, brain stem, spinal cord and peripheral nervous system, muscle diseases, besides surgery, including medical applications With full advantage of our clinical experience and the latest technological advances.
Diagnosis and treatment of neurological diseases is possible by applying advanced scanning methods in our hospital. In modern medical practice, the advanced laboratory has an important place in the diagnosis and treatment of neurological diseases. The radiology department which is especially important in cerebrovascular diseases help us to elucidate the neurological diseases with the right and high quality results required by modern medicine and new generation radiological devices.
Practices in our hospital
Neurological Basic Science
- While many systemic diseases cause findings of our nervous system, some neurological diseases can affect other organ system.Since many neurological diseases don’t provide a single system diagnosis, many of the patients are seen in diffirent branch physicians at the time of referral.

- Increase in elderly population leads to more frequent systemic diseases such as hypertension, heart disease and diabetes and related complications.Cranial tomography and/or magnetic resonance scanning,echocardiography, sxtracranial dysplasia are frequently used in our patients who refer to our unit.The result of these studies contribute to follow-up and treatment of our patients.İn severe cases, such as coma, progressive prolapse , frequent recurring seizures, where the patient’s life is endangered,our follow-up and treatment is carried out in the intensive care unit.
- EMG(Electro myo-neurography) which is a dynamic diagnostic method for evaluating the neuropathies that ocur with common complaints such as hand and foot numbness and painful conditions like waist,neck etc. Can be done in olur electrophysiology laboratory.
- Electroencephalography(EEG) examination can be performed in our electrophysiology laboratory, which is mainly used for differential diagnosis of epilepsy and many diseases of the central nervous system.
- The work force that leads to a social problem and headache that hinders productivity can be evaluated in our policlinic.
