  Neurology services

ANOC is staffed by consultants who are resident neurologists in tertiary private hospitals within the Klang Valley.

The centre is a one-stop tertiary referral clinic for the diagnosis, investigation and outpatient management of important neurological disorders. Neurological conditions such as stroke and transient ischaemic attacks, Parkinson disease and other movement disorders, nerve and muscle disorders, epilepsy and other seizure disorders, headache / migraine and chronic pain disorders, vertigo and giddiness, narcolepsy and other sleep disorders.

In-house physiotherapy is available for stroke rehabilitation, musculo-skeletal and spine-related pain due to degenerative disease.

The centre offers Botulinum toxin Injections for focal dystonias such as hemifacial spasm, blepharospasm, cervical (neck) dystonia, excessive salivation, spasticity, chronic headache and migraine.

On-site advanced neuroimaging facility with MRI 1.5 T is available for imaging of the brain, spinal cord, muscles and nerves without radiation. This enables the neurologist to better understand the patient’s symptoms and to exclude serious disorders such as stroke, brain and spinal cord tumours. Other not serious but very common disorders such as spondylosis and disc prolapse causing neck and back pain can readily be diagnosed by MRI neuroimaging.

Neurodiagnostic facilities with Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS) and Electromyography (EMG) performed by an experienced technician and the neurologist allows accurate assessment of nerve and muscle disorders that frequently present with numbness, pain and weakness. Electroencephalography (EEG) and video EEG can be carried out for further assessment of epilepsy and other seizure disorders. Polysomnography (PSG) is available for the diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), narcolepsy and other sleep related disorders.
