We provide professional support in Neurology.
Neurology is a branch of medicine that deals with the diseases of the brain, cerebellum,
brainstem and spinal cord of the central nervous system, as well as all nerves
and muscles of the peripheral nervous system.
Neurology is a branch in which the patient-physician relationship is very
important. Because after the treatment begins, the patient-physician
relationship must be very close. Neurology is a branch in which changes
such as drug changes, dose increase and decrease are made frequently.
Therefore, neurological examinations and controls should be performed at frequent
intervals in the treatment of neurological diseases.
EEG and EMG examinations are performed in our electrophysiology laboratories.

It is the electrical examination of the nerves and muscles in our body.
Nerve damage due to diabetes
Neck and herniated disc
Diagnosing muscle diseases
It is performed for the diagnosis of spinal cord diseases with muscle wasting.
The electrical conduction functions of the nerves are measured by using a linear
electric current at a level that does not disturb the patient much. For
this, low-intensity electrical current is applied to the fingers and skin areas
on the nerves and this current is collected with computerized instruments from
the nerve or elsewhere in the skin. Thus, it is understood whether the
nerve functions properly or not.
By placing thin-diameter disposable sterile needle-shaped electrodes inside the
muscles, it is understood whether the nerve of the examined muscle is diseased,
or whether the muscle is healthy, by monitoring and analyzing the electrical
activity in the muscles on the EMG device screen.
You should come lightly,
If there are medicines he uses regularly, there is no harm in taking them. However,
some medications should not be used in special cases, in such cases, the
necessary warning is given by the physician in advance. (If blood thinners are used, the physician
should be told.)
Wearing comfortable clothing makes it easy to examine. Female patients are
recommended not to wear pantyhose. You should come clean with a bath.
If he has a pacemaker, it is recommended to warn the physician before the
EEG is the printing of the electrical activity that occurs during both wakefulness
and sleep state by nerve cells in the brain as brain waves.
The normal electrical activity of the brain is impaired in many cases, especially
epilepsy (epilepsy). Information about the location and form of this
disorder is obtained by evaluating the brain waves that make up the
EEG. Examination methods developed later than EEG, such as computed
tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), do not provide
information about the electrical activity of the brain. Especially in
the diagnosis of epilepsy and determination of its types,
the method that will decide the treatment is EEG.
The electrical activity of the brain is transmitted to the EEG device via small
metal electrodes placed on the scalp of the patient and the data are recorded
on the computer for an average of 20-30 minutes (longer if necessary).
It is not possible to give electricity to the patient during the shooting and the
patient does not feel any pain.
In order to get a quality recording without interference, the patient should keep
his / her eyes closed, relax the jaw and neck muscles, and remain as still as
possible, unless otherwise desired.
