Facilities available :-

  • Pediatric Neurosurgery
  • Peripheral Nerve Surgery
  • Endoscopic Skull Base Surgery
  • Restorative neurology and rehabilitation
  • Stem cell therapy
  • Complex brain tumor surgery
  • Skull base surgery
  • Deep brain stimulation
  • Stereotactic neurosurgery
  • Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery – MISS – ‘Keyhole Surgery’ using endoscopic devises
Himalayan Hospital
  • Dedicated Operation Theatres, Microscope, Endoscopy
  • Intraoperative Electrophysiological monitoring, Isocentric C-Arm, I.C.P Monitoring
  • Speed drill, head clamps, Stereotactic frame, bone scalpel
  • Cavitron ultrasonic surgical aspirator (CUSA) and ERBE Neurosurgical Diathermy EEG, EMG, NCV
  • Botox Therapy: Botulinum toxin or Botox in short is a therapy to take the edge off facial wrinkles. Botox injections are used to treat conditions such as neck spasms (cervical dystonia), excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), an overactive bladder and lazy eye. These may also be used to prevent chronic migraines.
  • Neurophysiology Labs: These labs offer Evoked Potential Studies, which are checked out to measure electrical signals along nerve pathways. Brainstem Auditory Evoked Potentials help diagnose hearing losses, distinguishing between damage to the ‘acoustic nerve’from damage to the ‘auditory pathways’ within the brain stem.
  • Neuropsychology Services: This is a branch of psychology, which is concerned with how a person’s cognition and behavior are related to the brain and the rest of the nervous system. Doctors focus on how injuries or illnesses of the brain affect cognitive and behavioral functions.
  • Neuro-Rehabilitation Services: These include treatment for all kinds of Paralysis with maximum results. Offers medications, physiotherapy, speech and swallow therapy, psychological therapies, occupational therapies, teaching or retraining patients on mobility skills, communication processes etc. Neuro-Rehab is essential for outcomes after both brain and spinal cord injuries.
  • * Neuromuscular Lab – Offers complete services for gauging nerve and muscle disease, including clinical evaluation, nerve and muscle biopsy, tissue preparation and pathological interpretation.
  • NCV/EMG Studies Including RNS Test, Facial Nerve Studies, Evoked Potential and Event Related Potential Tests.
  • Digital EEG lab – for routine diagnosis of epileptic disorders.
  • Video EEG lab – These are put to usefor prolonged EEG along with video monitoring for the diagnosis, classification of seizures.
  • Sleep Lab – Sleep studies are conducted in these labs during a patients normal sleeping hours so that sleep disorders can be diagnosed and treated.

Himalayan Institute of Medical Science is a multidisciplinary,tertiary care hospital. Neurology was started in the Hospital in 1995.A full-fledged separate Neurology department came into existence in--. This department is the first integrated department of Neurology in the state of Uttarakhand and provides ministrations to neurological disorders of all types,not only from state of Uttarakhand but also from UP, HP and Haryana. It has 40 beds including 6Neuro-critical careand emergency beds. At present four neurologists man the department. The Neurology Department provides comprehensive ‘in-patient’ and ‘out-patient’ neurological services, treating the full range of neurological disorders. Itoffers state-of-art Emergency & Trauma serviceand treats around1500 in-patients annually. Notably it has awell-established outpatient service, seeing 40000 outpatients per year. The Department has developed sub-specialty expertise in stroke, epilepsy, degenerative disorders, neuromuscular disorders and headache.

The department is committed to providing excellence in neurological care through quality management, education and training of health care professionals. Today it is well known for its academic excellence and inexpensive medical care in this part of the country.

The Department of Neurology has been permitted by Medical Council of India to start DM program with an intake capacity of two candidates per year.

Sleep Disorders

Problems with sleep is now found to be the root cause for many systemic illnesses.

The Sleep lab is functional for overnight sleep study (PSG) + MSLT. Sleep disorders can be diagnosed and in selected casesof (OSA) CPAP titration is done and homeCPAP support is recommended.
