Neurology Clinic

Given their complexity, neurological diseases or conditions require history taking, diagnosis, and timely yet appropriate treatment from expert neurologists. The onset of these diseases, however, can be noticeable yet often overlooked due to subtle abnormalities, from frequent headaches to dizziness, numbness of the extremities, loss of balance, slurred speech, facial droop, confusion, and sudden occurrence of fatal conditions like stroke, infection of the nervous system, and traumatic brain or spinal cord injuries.

Epilepsy, cerebrovascular disease, myasthenia gravis, spinal cord disease, and central nervous system infection are common neurological conditions that adversely impact patient quality of life, causing patients to be less independent and more dependent on their families. As for stroke, it is one of the leading causes of death and disability worldwide. 1 in 4 of the world population over 25 years old is affected by cerebrovascular diseases. According to information from Thailand’s Ministry of Public Health, in 2023, stroke affected 349,126 Thais and took the lives of 36,214 people; most are males under 70 years old.

The Neurology Clinic at MedPark Hospital specializes in the nervous system and brain disorders, their diagnoses, and treatments. Our team of experienced specialists covers all subspecialties of neurology, providing comprehensive care for patients with neurological and brain-related abnormalities. We are available for patient care 24/7 and equipped with cutting-edge medical technology, ensuring precise and accurate disease diagnosis. In case surgical intervention is necessary, our experienced neurosurgeons are on hand to address myriad neurological disorders and treat complex and challenging conditions across various techniques. Following treatment, doctors will refer patients to the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Center to facilitate their recovery, improve overall health, and enable them to return to a lifestyle as close to normal as possible while achieving better self-care.

The treatment options for patients with neurological conditions have become increasingly diverse due to advancements in knowledge and technology. This progress has provided various options and increased hope for effectively addressing challenging, complex diseases. Physicians play a crucial role in selecting the most suitable approaches tailored to the individual context of each patient. Given the differences among individuals, treating neurological disorders is akin to a work of art where physicians, patients, and their families collaborate to design the most comprehensive and personalized care.

Why the Neurology Clinic at MedPark Hospital?

  • The Neurology Clinic at MedPark Hospital is staffed by highly experienced teaching faculties neurologists who specialize in providing comprehensive care for patients at all levels of severity. They work collaboratively with junior physicians and a multidisciplinary team, including neurosurgeons, neuro-interventional radiologists, and physicians in physical medicine and rehabilitation. The Clinic offers diagnostics and treatment for various neurological conditions, including but not limited to cerebrovascular diseases, headache disorders, epileptic disorders, Parkinson’s disease, movement disorders, dementia, sleep disorders, neurological autoimmune diseases, and neuromuscular and nerve disorders. The Clinic operates during regular business hours, providing outpatient and inpatient services and 24/7 response for neurological emergencies.
  • The Neurology Clinic at MedPark Hospital, supported by state-of-the-art medical tools and technology to facilitate accurate diagnosis and efficient treatment, features advanced imaging modalities, including 3T-MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging), CT SCAN (Computed Tomography), PET SCAN (Positron Emission Tomography), and a bi-plane cerebral angiography system for examining brain blood vessels. Additionally, motion and posture measurement devices are available to assess movement and body positioning. The clinical laboratory at the hospital is well-equipped with innovative technology, meeting ISO 15189 and ISO 15190 standards, ensuring the rapid analysis of blood and tissue samples for swift identification of the causes of diseases and enhancing the accuracy of neurological diagnoses. The availability of these tools allows physicians to differentiate and understand the complex symptoms associated with various neurological disorders. This advanced diagnostic capability is crucial for conditions such as cerebrovascular diseases. Swift identification of abnormalities allows for timely treatment planning, especially in cases of acute stroke, where rapid intervention is essential to reduce the risk of permanent disability or death. The goal is to increase the likelihood of patients returning to a regular and healthy life.
  • The high level of readiness at the Neurology Clinic at MedPark Hospital is crucial, especially when dealing with complex and time-sensitive cases. The Clinic is well-prepared to handle patients requiring specialized and intricate treatments, where quick diagnosis and timely intervention are paramount. For instance, in the treatment of ischemic stroke caused by blocked blood vessels in the brain, the Clinic employs advanced technologies such as endovascular Clot Retrieval. This technique involves using a catheter to remove blood clots from the blocked vessels without major surgery. Because this procedure must be performed within a narrow time window, having a skilled and experienced medical team is essential. Rapid and precise diagnosis, coupled with timely interventions performed by a highly skilled neurovascular intervention team, significantly reduces the risk of mortality or disability. Quick response in cases like ischemic stroke enhances the chances of brain recovery and promotes an improved quality of life post-treatment. The commitment of the Clinic to staying at the forefront of medical technology and maintaining a highly skilled team underscores its dedication to providing the best care for patients facing neurological challenges.
  • The understanding and compassionate approach of the neurologist team at MedPark Hospital Neurology Clinic plays a crucial role in providing care that extends beyond diagnosis and treatment. Healthcare professionals, including doctors and nurses, recognize and address the specific needs of both patients and their families. The medical staff actively listens to the concerns and worries of patients and their families, willingly answering questions and alleviating any uncertainties. They take the time to thoroughly explain details about the disease, the treatment process, potential side effects, and post-treatment rehabilitation. This comprehensive communication helps patients and their families make informed decisions regarding their treatment plans. Moreover, the emphasis on providing information from various perspectives allows patients to consider different options and make decisions that contribute to a good quality of life, minimizing the impact of the disease on their overall well-being and positively influencing the emotional well-being of their families. It reflects a commitment to long-term care and encourages a supportive environment that aids in the sustained management of their health over time.
  • The Neurology Clinic on the 5th floor is close to the Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Center. This proximity facilitates convenient access for patients receiving neuromuscular rehabilitation, eliminating the need to move to multiple treatment locations. It is a convenient facility setup for patients requiring follow-ups with neurologists and ongoing neuromuscular rehabilitation with occupational and physical therapists. Additionally, this convenience extends to family members who play a close role in patient care.
