About the department

The department of neurology at Memorial Sisli Hospital Istanbul diagnoses and treats patients with central or peripheral nervous system pathologies. The health of the nervous system of patients is taken care of by a highly qualified team of experienced doctors. Most of them have completed postgraduate training in well-known medical centres in America and Europe. As a result, they have unique skills and in-depth knowledge in their area of ​​​​competence. To ensure accurate diagnosis, the department has a vast arsenal of high-precision studies, including electroencephalography, electromyography, registration of evoked potentials, radiography, computed and magnetic resonance imaging, and ultrasound examination of the head and neck vessels. After evaluating the diagnostic results, the doctor makes a final diagnosis and develops an optimal treatment regimen. In particularly complex clinical cases, specialists in neurosurgery and neuroradiology may be involved.

The department successfully uses modern and most effective methods to treat headaches, movement disorders, cerebrovascular diseases, epilepsy, back pain, muscle pain, dizziness, dementia and other neurological pathologies. The main direction of the department's activity is the treatment of cerebrovascular diseases, which can lead to irreversible changes in brain function or even cause death. In addition, specialists have to deal with strokes. The department's therapeutic possibilities include drug treatment and endovascular procedures to eliminate cerebrovascular accidents.
