Department of Neurology
INTRODUCTION

The Neurology department at Liaquat National Hospital is fully equipped and staffed to diagnose and treat all spectrums of Neurological Diseases. This includes all acute conditions, such as Stroke, Meningitis, Epileptic attacks, severe Muscle or Nerve weakness, chronic conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, Dementia, Headaches, Neck aches, Backaches, Dizziness, Numbness, Fatigue, Neuromuscular weakness and other disorders etc. A team of highly qualified Neurologists, Internist, Residents, Medical Officers, Therapists, Psychologist, Technologists and Nurses are available and fully dedicated to the mission of the department. “To provide comprehensive, compassionate and cost effective Neurological Care for all citizens”

SERVICES

The Neurology Department is offering following services:

1- Clinical Neurophysiology Services:
Equipped with latest technology and well trained technologists, the Clinical Neuro-physiology laboratory performs essentially all relevant tests. The equipment is state of the art and technologists are trained and supervised by certified Neurologists. Following tests are now performed on the daily basis. Appointments are recommended but walk-ins are accepted as well.

- Electroencephalography (EEG).
- Electromyography (EMG).
- Nerve Conduction Study (NCS).
- Video EEG Monitoring (24 Hours).
- Brainstem Auditory Evoked Potentials (BAEP).
- Visual Evoked Potentials (VEP).
- Polysomnography (PSG).
- Trans-cranial Doppler (TCD).
- Botox injection (with or without EMG guidance).


EEG (Electroencephalogram):
This test measures electrical activity of the brain (just like ECG is for heart). It is a safe and painless procedure for patients with possible Epilepsy or spells of fainting, confusion, drowsiness, headaches, vertigo, coma and other neurological dysfunction. For epilepsy and sleep disorder in additional services provides sleep derived EEG and for admitted patients portable EEG is also provided

EMG/NCS (Electromyogram / Nerve conduction studies):
This test measures electrical activity of nerves and muscles. Very useful tests that may help identify a nerve or muscle disease/injury. This test consists of two parts (i) NCS or Nerve Conduction Study checks the functioning of nerves performed by well trained technologists and (ii) Needle examination that is done by the Neurologist. Patients with pain, weakness, numbness may need this test.

EPs (Evoked Potentials):
(VEP, BAEP, SSEP)
Another safe and painless test that provides useful information about Nerves of Eye (Visual Evoked Potential), Ear (Brainstem Auditory Evoked Potentials) as well as Nerves / Spinal cord (Somatosensory Evoked Potentials) and their connections with the brain.

TCD (Trans-cranial Doppler):
TCD measures blood flow of the brain using ultrasound. Tests are very useful in identifying those individuals who may be at risk for stroke. Since it is an ultrasound it is painless as well as safe.

EEG Video Monitoring:
All / any types of fits can be recorded on the video and at the same time EEG recording is done. This is the way to confirm seizures or pseudo seizures. It also helps localize a seizure focus.

2- Neuro Rehabilitation Unit:
Physical therapy is already well established at LNH. We run physical therapy school and have a team of trained staff and junior trainees. The Department of Neurology offers three services viz., Occupational Therapy, Speech Language Therapy and Neuro-psychology.

Speech Language Therapy:
Speech Therapists help to rehabilitate adults and children with communication, language, speech and swallowing disorders. Adults may acquire neurological damage due to (stroke, head injury) or voice problems. Children may present with difficulties in acquiring language normally (possibly as a result of cognitive deficits, cerebral palsy, hearing loss or autism) or have reading and writing difficulties (dyslexia). Speech Therapists also deal with stuttering and speech disorders secondary to cleft palate.

Occupational Therapy:
Patients with Strokes, Head Injury, Parkinson’s disease, Cerebral palsy and other neurological and Orthopedic/ Rheumatologic problems are helpful in reaching their maximum potential. The aim of Occupational Therapy is to assist patient in achieving independence in activities of daily living.

Neuro-Psychology:
Memory problems, developmental delay in children, behavioral abnormalities, I. Q. Testing, Post Head-Injury and Post Stroke mental changes require evaluation. These are performed by trained and certified Psychologist. Comprehensive batteries of tests are used for assessing intellectual functioning, probable pre morbid level, area of cognitive strengths and deficit. These tests help the clinician in optimum management of their patients.

3- Stroke (Falij) Center
A state of the art facility that is fully equipped air-conditioned and managed by specially trained staff under the supervision of Neurologists, the Center provides 24 hours a day medical care to acute stroke patients as well as other Neurological emergencies.

4- Neurology Ward
A 12-bedded general & four semi-private rooms provide neurological in-patients care in a caring environment.

5- Out Patient Department
Conveniently located and easily accessible (patients can be dropped off at the entrance of the clinic) stretchers and wheel chairs are always available. Neurology clinics are held every day (except Sunday). Morning clinics (9 Am - 2 Pm) are on first come first served basis. Afternoon clinics (2 pm - 5 pm) are by appointment.

ACADEMIC ACTIVITIES

Weekly board meetings attended by Neurologists, Neuro-surgeons and other specialists to discuss interesting as well as challenging and undiagnosed cases. This helps in getting multiple opinions at one time as well as consensus on optimum management of patients.

The Department provides residency training for FCPS in Neurology. The daily ward rounds, lectures, clinical discussions and M & M meetings create an academic environment which further helps in the better services of the patient’s.
