Neurology, it is a branch of medicine that studies and treats nervous system disorders. The nervous system is a complex system that regulates bodily activities. Nervous system; The peripheral nervous system consists of the spinal cord (spinal cord) and the brain. The treatment of diseases that arise in any of these areas and require surgical intervention is carried out by the Neurology department. In the department, which is divided into two separate branches as adult and pediatric neurology, as well as outpatient and inpatient treatment services and diseases that require intensive care are followed up. Answers to frequently asked questions such as “What is neurology?” and what you need to know about the subject are as follows:

A neurologist performs the diagnosis, follow-up and treatment of a wide range of diseases that concern neuromuscular diseases and all parts of the nervous system. For the diagnosis and follow-up of neurological diseases, imaging methods and examinations that measure certain neural transmissions are used.

The main examinations performed in the neurology clinics of our hospitals are as follows:

  • Polysomnography
  • EEG ( Pediatric-Adult, Asleep-Awake ): It is used to diagnose wide range of diseases, especially epilepsy.
  • EMG ( Pediatric-Adult )
  • Evoked potentials

The neurological history of the patient is taken as the first step in the examination. Taking a good history is extremely important for early diagnosis and proper treatment. This history is evaluated in detail. Then, consciousness, motor system, cranial nerve, nerve stretching and reflex tests can be performed according to the patient's condition and the course of the history.
