The Neurology Department at the American Hospital has been providing diagnostic and therapeutic services for neurologic diseases with experienced doctors and faculty members since 1994. With our shift system, our department's specialist Doctors always have a presence at the Neurological department where services are rendered 24/7 in turns.
We adopt a multidisciplinary approach with examinations and treatments for diseases of the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, and muscles. As some neurologic diseases require emergency treatment, we are continuously cooperating with the Accident and Emergency (A&E) Department. Moreover, we collaborate with Neurosurgery, General Intensive Care-Anesthesia-Pain Management, Medical Oncology and Radiation Oncology, Internal Medicine, Cardiology, Physical Medicine and Orthopedics departments to evaluate neurological signs and symptoms of systemic diseases.
Diagnostic EEG, video-EEG monitoring, EMG, SEP, VEP, BAEP, and magnetic stimulation tests are utilized at the Neurology Department of American Hospital. All these examinations are performed by specialized physicians and faculty members.
We provide treatment to approximately 7-8 thousands of new patients with outpatient services every year. Approximately 1.200 EMG-SEP examinations and 1.000 EEG studies are performed annually. Two technicians with at least 15-20 years of experience are continuously working on these recorded procedures.
Patient-doctor dynamics are of great importance to our department; we work to cultivate close relationships based on trust with our patients throughout the entire treatment process. It is crucial to keep in touch and continue relations with our patients for accurate modification in neurological medicines involving dose reductions or increases.
The most vital characteristic of the Department of Neurology is our ability to render services round the clock with experienced specialists and faculty members. Our team that consists of 3 physicians and 4 faculty members creates joint treatment protocols by using modern diagnostic methods; thus we can obtain better results even in more complex neurologic cases. Our team closely cooperates with faculty members of other universities and shares experience when necessary. High-quality cutting-edge examination and treatment equipment further facilitates this process.
