Neurology; is one of the most comprehensive branches of modern medicine working on the diagnosis and treatment of diseases related to the nervous system by its general expression.Ozel Tekirdag Yasam Hospital Neurology Department; It serves high standards in the diagnosis and treatment of many diseases including brain and vascular diseases, dizziness, headache, sleep disorders, epilepsy, muscular diseases, peripheral nerve diseases and multiple sclerosis (MS).
The Department of Neurology serves as a polyclinic, service and electrophysiology laboratory (EEG - EMG). The Comprehensive Radiology and Imaging Center and Laboratory services meet all the needs of the Department of Neurology during diagnosis and treatment. In the cases requiring intervention, the most appropriate treatment is applied with maximum support from the relevant surgical branches and the patient and his / her relatives are informed about the current situation and the future process in detail.
The list of treatments offered by Ozel Tekirdag Yasam Hospital Neurology Clinic includes, but not limited to all of the following.
Diagnosis and Treatment Main Topics
• Head rotation
• Waist & Headache
• Celebral hemorrhage
• Sleeping disorders
• Epilepsy (Sara)
• Restless Leg Syndrome
• ALS etc. Movement Disorders
• Central Nervous System Vasculitis
• Neuropathies (Nerve diseases)
• Muscular Diseases
• Nervous Muscle Joint Diseases
What is EEG?
The electrical activity generated by the nerve cells of the brain is printed on the paper in the form of brain waves.
In which situations is it necessary?The normal electrical activity of the brain deteriorates in many cases. By the evaluation of the brain waves forming the EEG, information about the place and shape of this disorder is obtained.
How is EEG imaging done?
The electrical activity of the brain is transmitted to the EEG device via small metal electrodes placed on the scalp hair of the patient and the data is recorded on the computer for about 20 minutes. It is not possible to give the patient electricity during shooting and the patient will not feel any pain. In order to obtain a stable, quality recording, the patient should stand still as long as possible, keeping his eyes closed, jaws and neck muscles loose during shooting unless otherwise desired.
What is EMG?
Electrical monitoring of the nerves and muscles in our body. By using a rigid linear electric current that will not disturb the patient, the electrical conduction functions of the nerves and the potential for the muscles to emerge with this electrical discharge are measured.
In which case is EMG required?
• Nerve injuries
• Nerve jams
• Waist and neck hernias
• Tabs in the style of numbness and burning in arms and legs
• Facial paralysis
• Diagnosis of diseases that disrupt nerve function (metabolic diseases such as diabetes)
• Diagnosis of muscle diseases
It is done for the diagnosis of spinal cord diseases that go through the muscles. With EMG, nerves are examined to see if the peripheral nerves on the head, arms, legs and body are functioning normally. In this method, the nerves that fulfill the "feel" and "motion" functions are examined separately. It allows us to feel the contacts that surround our senses (sensory nerves), to feel that something we touch is cold or warm. The movement nerves (motor nerves) test the movement of muscles by transmitting movement commands from the brain or spinal cord to the muscles.
