NEUROLOGY

 

What is neurology?

 

Neurology is a medical specialisation that deals with all of the conditions affecting the nervous system and more specifically the brain. Specialists in neurology are called neurologists.

 

 
What pathologies does the department cover?
 

The Neurology Department is the only hospital unit of its kind in the Hauts-de-Sein department; it receives patients suffering from neurological conditions, and provides general neurology services.

 

  • Stroke*
  • Multiple sclerosis and inflammatory diseases
  • Epilepsy
  • Parkinson's disease, abnormal movements
  • Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Tumour related pathologies
  • Neuromuscular peripheral diseases
  • Sleep associated diseases
  • Neurology functional tests. EEG-EMG

*Hôpital Foch has its own Neurovascular Intensive Care Unit specialised in treating strokes (CVA).

 

 

What are the different types of treatment for neurological conditions?

 

Treatment is provided to patients on the basis of three different methods:

 

  1. Neurological emergencies from the A&E wards of the Hôpital Foch and other hospitals account for about half of the admissions to the service. In 2007 a specific sector was set up to treat acute phase strokes (the Neuro-Vascular Unit). A round the clock neurology team exists to receive Stroke victims on a 24 hour basis.
  2. Organised consultations and treatment accounts for the other half of admissions, this includes outpatient treatment for various conditions: intravenous multiple sclerosis treatment, neuro-oncological surveillance of brain tumours in partnership with the oncology department, and the exploration of cognitive disorders…
  3. Neurology consultations can include the possibility of botulinum toxin infiltrations. This substance can be used to treat chronic migraines.

 

There is a significant amount of liaison with the Hospital's other departments, thus ensuring specialised advice for patients of the A&E ward or other units.
