NEUROLOGY

Neurology deals with disorders of the central and peripheral nervous system, in particular those of the brain, bone marrow, nerves and muscles. The disorders are numerous and complex, and research plays a primordial role in their treatment. For multiple sclerosis, studies were commissioned on dozens of molecules alone.

 

 

 Neurology can explore:

 

-The pathways of intelligence, memory and language

-Motor skills, the coordination of movements and balance

-Sensorial nerves (optical, auditory, olfactory), motor and sensory

-The muscular system

 

Among the most common symptoms and disorders are:

 

-Loss of consciousness, epileptic seizures, the consequences of head trauma

-Alzheimer’s

-Paralysis

-Tingling, neuralgia (sciatic), and nerve pain

-Memory and intellectual deficiencies, Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia

-Organic disorders of mood and behavior

-Sleep disorders

-Gait disorders

-Migraines and tremors

-Parkinson’s disease

-Muscle disorders

 

Benefits of the Department

 

 

The department works in close collaboration with neurosurgeons, orthopedists and radiologists to identify disorders through brain MRIs. Electroencephalography allows us to explore the nervous and peripheral systems.

 

The equipments within the intensive care unit allow for the effective management of strokes (hemiplegic) be they ischemic or hemorrhagic.

 

The Team

 

To confirm their diagnosis, the neurologists will interview and examine you, and occasionally request complementary tests (biological, scans, MRI etc.,) cognitive memory assessments and other “superior function” such as language, praxis, electroencephalogram (EEG), and electroneuromyography (EMG).

 

Responsible for the department are: Dr. K. Abou Khaled, Dr. M. Ferzli, Dr. I. Houcheimy,Dr. J. Khazzal, Dr. E. Louis.
