treatment of neurological disordersNeurology - a branch of medicine that specializes in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the nervous system (peripheral and central).

Neurology in Israel uses the latest technology in diagnosis and treatment, the modern medical equipment, provides services of highly skilled professionals.

Neurology in Israel is represented by specialized centers and offices in major multidisciplinary clinics. It interacts with areas such as otolaryngology, medical psychology, cardiology, ophthalmology, traumatology, speech therapy, psychiatry. In the field of neurology work Chiropractors, vertebrologists specialists, neurosurgeons.

Medical service provide a first-class organization of the treatment of neurological diseases in hospitals in Israel. Our experts will be happy to advise you on any questions!

In clinics Israel Neurology carried effective treatment of a large variety of diseases:

  • brain and spinal stroke;
  • Abdominal migraine;
  • brain abscesses;
  • amentia;
  • neural amyotrophy of Charcot-Marie;
  • amnesia;
  • cerebral aneurysms;
  • cerebral palsy ;
  • traumatic apathy;
  • brain atrophy;
  • insomnia;
  • amyotrophic lateral sclerosis;
  • Alzheimer's disease;
  • Meniere's disease;
  • Parkinson's disease;
  • Thomsen's disease;
  • vegetative-vascular dystonia;
  • cluster headache;
  • hydrocephalus;
  • hypoglycemic coma;
  • hemorrhagic and ischemic stroke;
  • coma;
  • leukodystrophy;
  • lumbago;
  • herniated disc;
  • intercostal neuralgia;
  • microcephaly;
  • narcolepsy;
  • neuralgia;
  • sciatica;
  • multiple sclerosis;
  • encephalitis;
  • epilepsy and many others.

Diseases of the nervous system is difficult to establish because the symptoms are similar apart from the daily condition of the person and do not cause any serious concern. It can insomnia, headache, fatigue, weakness in the legs and arms, etc.

Diagnostic methods in neurology IsraelDiagnosis in Neurology

For accurate diagnosis applies comprehensive screening program.

  1. ECHO-MG (echoencephalography) is an ultrasound brain, which is based on the reflection of ultrasound from a variety of body structures. Used in traumatology, neurosurgery and neurology. It assesses the state of the brain in cases of suspected girotsefaliyu, tumors, intracranial hypertension in children. Dimensional echoencephalography used for diagnostics in neurology Israel abnormalities in newborns: a birth trauma, asphyxia, convulsions, macrocephaly, malformations of the nervous system, and so forth.
  2. Electroencephalography (EGG) examines the brain by recording the difference in electrical potential that occur during organ functioning. Indications may include: epilepsy, focal brain lesions (neoplastic formation, cerebral infarction, hemorrhage). EGG also assesses the severity of encephalopathy different genesis, deep coma, in anesthesia monitors the level of consciousness.
  3. Positron - Emission Tomography examines brain metabolism in suspected cerebrovascular pathology, epilepsy, Alzheimer's disease, brain tumors, demyelinating diseases, degenerative diseases (Huntington's disease, Parkinson's).
  4. Lumbar puncture is the procedure for obtaining the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) from the spinal canal. Pathological processes in the body cause it to change. The survey is carried out under suspected neuroinfection (encephalitis, meningitis), subarachnoid hemorrhage, spinal malignancies and brain (neuroleukemia, carcinomatosis, leptomeningeal metastasis), normal pressure hydrocephalus, hematological malignancies (lymphoma, leukemia) and several other pathologies.
  5. MRI makes it possible to obtain images of sections or layers of the spinal cord, brain and spine without affecting X-rays on the patient's body. By MRI diagnose inflammation foci, demyelinating diseases, cerebral circulatory disorders are identified, tumoral processes, arteriovenous aneurysm, traumatic injury, hematoma.
  6. Computed tomography allows you to create images of different layers of the brain and spinal cord, skull, vertebral column, close to the actual anatomical structure. Contrast agents enhance image accuracy. With CT and diagnose abnormalities of infections of the CNS effects of spinal and cranial trauma, neoplasms (bruises, tumors, cysts), disorders of the spinal cord and brain circulation. Using RT plan neurosurgical operations and evaluate their result. Compared with MRI CT increasingly used for the diagnosis of bone abnormalities and injuries, as well as contraindications to MRI.
  7. Myelography using contrast agents makes it possible to see the subarachnoid (subarachnoid) space of the spinal cord. This method is used to find out the causes of the process of compression of the spinal cord and roots. Fits location of pathological changes at break and hernia of intervertebral disk, spinal stenosis, tumors and abscesses. We assessed the feasibility of surgical treatment. The indications may be suspected syringomyelia, spinal arachnoiditis, posterior fossa tumors, neurological symptoms. Compared with CT and MRI this method is more complex and less secure.

Also used other diagnostic methods in neurology Israel, including the Doppler ultrasound scan, cerebral angiography, laboratory tests, and so on.

Treatment of neurological diseases in Israel

neurology treatmentstandards of care in neurology Israel comply with all international medical standards.

Treatment of neurological diseases in the clinics of the State due to the stage of the disease, the general state of health and the forecasts of the attending physician. Apply medication, surgery, physical therapy procedures. The greatest efficiency shows an integrated approach.

Drug treatment of neurological diseases involves in Israel application of various drugs: blockade of peripheral nerve trunks and spinal roots, epidural and paravertebral administering chondroprotective, glucocorticoids, drug administration into the cerebrospinal fluid via the pump implanted with drug and so forth.

Also in the treatment of Neurology in Israel are applied techniques such as massage, manual therapy, exercise therapy, acupuncture, physical therapy procedures. These methods are effective in the treatment of spinal cord injury, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, in rehabilitation after stroke and trauma.

Physiotherapy and massage in Israel Neurology restore the nerve impulses, improve blood circulation and muscle trophism. Acupuncture enhances nerve impulses, stimulating it from the periphery to the center. Manual therapy is highly effective in disorders of the spine mobility, with displacement of the vertebrae. Exercise therapy is an integral part of the rehabilitation process, allowing to increase the range of motion in paresis, restore lost function of peripheral neuritis, adapt patient after a stroke or severe trauma.

With the ineffectiveness of conservative treatment methods in neurology Israel used surgery. Inneurosurgery of the country priority received surgery microsurgery, endoscopic and stereotactic.

Neurology in Israel, provides an integrated approach and to guarantee the effectiveness of the treatment .

Clinics of states operate as efficient treatment of the various pathologies of the heart and vascular diseases . skin diseases and defects . alcoholism and drug abuse . ENT disease and so on.
