The Division of Neurology under the Department of Medicine was started in the year 1989 by Dr Alexander P Abraham. A state of the art Neurophysiology lab was started one year later. The division of Neurology became an independent Department in the year 2001. At present there are three faculty members: Dr Jeyaraj Durai Pandian (Professor and Head), Dr Mahesh Kate (Assistant Professor) and Dr. Vineeth Jaison (Assistant Professor). There are four Neurotechnologists and two secretarial staffs. The Neurophysiology lab has a Video EEG and an EMG/EP machine.

There are four Neurotechnologists and two secretarial staffs. The Neurophysiology lab has a Video EEG and an EMG/EP machine. We will be soon upgrading the Neurophysiology lab with a newer Video EEG machine with Sleep study facilities. In addition we will be having a dedicated Autonomic lab by Jan/Fe 2010.

The Comprehensive Stroke Program was started in December 2007 after Dr Jeyaraj D Pandian joined back from his Stroke Fellowship training in Australia. There are 6 dedicated acute beds where stroke patients are managed. Intravenous thrombolysis is routinely given for patients who come within the window period of 4 ½ hrs of stroke onset. Beyond 4 ½ hrs till 9 hrs patients could participate in an International trial called Desmoteplase in acute stroke.

The department has a separate Clinical Trials Office to manage all the Neurology drug trials. At present there are ongoing 6 International trials in various fields of Neurology. The Department is involved in Clinical Research and most of the projects are self funded from the departmental research fund. The future plans are to start Neurology training program (DM or DNB), Neurosonology lab and Neurointerventional treatments.
