A stroke is a neurological emergency in which the blood supply to the brain tissues stops and the brain cells begin to die. A stroke can be due to bleeding in the brain tissue or blood clots. A stroke specialty clinic treats the person post emergency care and handholds the recovery process till required. The clinic is equipped with advanced treatment options for stroke, such as:

  • Administering Recombinant tissue plasminogen tissue plasminogen activated.

Advanced treatments for Parkinson's disease provided at the specialty clinic are: 

  • Non-invasive stereotactic radiosurgery with gamma knife to administer radio dose in the target area inside the brain to improve motor control
  • Laser-induced thermal therapy targeting brain tissue for ablation
  • Deep brain stimulation, which is done by placing electrodes into the deeper brain structures under the guidance of imaging tools
  • Gene supplementation therapy, which uses a viral vector to supply new healthy DNA to replace the Parkinson-causing gene.

Advanced Technology & Facilities

Neurology Speciality Clinics

Aster Hospitals is regarded as the region's best neurology and spine hospital, offering a wide range of services for neurological ailments.

State-of-the-art technology and utilization of the most advanced tools for diagnosis and therapies make Aster Hospitals a leader in managing critical neurological illnesses.  These tests include the following:

● CT Scan

CT, or computerized tomography, detects if the damaged brain tissue is a tumor, bleeding, or clot. The scan involves taking a series of X-rays to see detailed images of the brain. You lie on a table that slides inside a circular machine. The machine has cameras that capture the scans, And a computer linked to the machine creates images of these scans.


MRI, or magnetic resonance imaging, can detect the slightest changes in the brain tissue. MRI machines use radio frequencies and magnets to capture the tissue details developed as images by the computer.

● Brain angiography

Brain angiography is a minimally invasive procedure to see the blood flow in the brain arteries. The procedures for brain angiography include catheterization angiography,  CT angiography, and magnetic resonance angiography.

● Doppler sonography

Doppler sonography or carotid ultrasound detects any plaque or block in the carotid arteries, which are the main arteries of the brain. The process uses sound waves to create images of the inside of the carotid arteries.

● Spinal tap or lumbar puncture

A spinal tap is done to examine the cerebrospinal fluid. Your doctor shall give you instructions about food and medicines before the test. During the procedure, you lie on a bed and turn to your left side with your knees pulled up to your chin. Your doctor shall clean and numb the spine area, insert a hollow, lengthy needle in your spine, and withdraw the fluid. Examination of the fluids aids in the diagnosis of infections and bleeding in the brain.

● Video-recorded EEG

EEG, or electroencephalogram, is done to assess the electrical activity in the brain to diagnose neurological illnesses such as epilepsy, tumors, sleep disorders, and encephalitis. The doctor attaches electrodes or patches to your skull and records the brain's electrical activity on a graph.

● Electromyography

Electromyography is the graphical representation of the health of a muscle. The graph shows the response of the muscles to electrical stimulation.

● Carotid ultrasound

It is an ultrasound of the arteries on either side of your neck. If there is a narrowing of the artery due to plaque formation, the blood flow to the brain gets restricted and this is detected in a carotid ultrasound.

● Discogram

A discogram is a special X-ray done to detect the cause of back pain. The X-ray is taken after injecting a dye in the centre of the disc in the vertebral column at the site of pain. X-rays show if there is an abnormality or growth in the disc or spaces around it.

● Tilt table test

 The test is done to determine the cause of repeated fainting episodes.


The NCV, or nerve conduction velocity, test measures the activity of electrical impulses through a peripheral nerve. Doctors recommend this test to diagnose and evaluate peripheral neuropathies and nerve compression syndromes.

Other therapies offered at the neurology specialty clinics are:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy
  • Cognitive adaptive techniques
  • Speech therapy
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Stress management
