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 departments and require surgical intervention is carried out by the neurology department.

What are the Major Examinations Performed in the Neurology Department?

The neurologist doctor diagnoses, monitors and treats 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 tests that measure certain neural signals are used.

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

  • Polysomnography (Sleep Study)
  • EEG (Child-Adolescent, Sleep-Awake): It is used to diagnose some other diseases, especially epilepsy.
  • EMG (Child-Large)
  • Evoked Potentials
  • Neurological Examination

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.
