Neurology is a branch of medicine that deals with the study and treatment of disorders of the nervous system in the human body. Nerves carry blood to different parts of our body and keep it running hale and hearty. The nervous system is a crucial part of our body, and nerves help us in our understanding of the five senses – sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch. In other words, our nervous system defines our existence and perception of the world around us.
The nervous system is one of the most complex and sophisticated systems in our body. The nervous system regulates and coordinates our body’s actions, and consists of two major divisions: the Central nervous system which consists of the brain and spinal cord. The second division is the Peripheral nervous system, which includes all other neural elements like eyes, ears, skin, and other “sensory receptors”.
Neurologists are doctors who are specially trained and equipped to diagnose and deal with problems related to the nervous system. Neurology is a specific and niche field of medicine that requires extreme care and precision and is one of the most critical areas of the medical profession.
Paediatric Neurologists, on the other hand, specialise in the treatment of nervous disorders related to children. While neurology is a vast field in itself, child neurologists are equipped to handle the issue of children accurately.
Paediatric Neurologists are crucial because the symptoms of neurological disorders require detailed understanding and explanation of one’s problems. Children are often not capable of explaining their situation, and it is up to the paediatric neurologist to correctly understand, diagnose and treat the needs of the child’s nervous system. This requires a healthy mix of specific domain knowledge, coupled with a profound human empathy and patience.
Ankura Children’s Hospital has a team of extremely well experienced and trained doctors who combine the two above abilities skillfully and correctly diagnose and treat nervous disorders in children.
Paediatric neurology calls for two important steps. One is preventive and precautionary steps that need to be properly communicated to the parents. The other is the timely diagnosis and treatment which will ensure that the problem has been dealt with efficiently.
Unlike other aspects of the medical profession, paediatric neurology requires the utmost attention to detail and scrutiny of the process and procedures involved. Our doctors put in their best foot forward to ensure that the habitats and conditions of the children are fully taken into consideration while treating the child.
Our nursing staff is specifically trained to put your child at ease and to create a friendly and peaceful atmosphere for both the children and parents. In our way, Ankura Children’s Hospital ensures that we treat your child’s nervous problems, without you or your child ever having to be ‘nervous’ about it!
