Neurology: Your Comprehensive Center for Brain and Nervous System Disorders

Within the field of neurology, the fusion of precision and the practitioner's experience plays a pivotal role in patient care. At the core of the brain and nervous system reside nerve cells, or neurons, numbering more than 88 billion, interconnected by trillions of synapses. Neurological disorders, encompassing conditions like headaches, epilepsy, Parkinson's, paralysis, and memory issues, all originate within the intricate domains of the brain. 

Our medical facility routinely encounters patients contending with a spectrum of brain, spine, and nerve ailments. In our rapidly evolving world, where research and treatment methodologies continuously advance, specialized expertise become indispensable in addressing complex neurological conditions like epilepsy, Parkinson's disease, dementia, multiple sclerosis, and strokes, utilizing both pharmacological and non-pharmacological approaches.

At our neurology hospital in Pune, we take immense pride in our comprehensive team of specialists. Our experts are complemented by a range of ancillary professionals, including neuropsychologists, speech-language pathologists, neurophysiologists, and neurological intensive care specialists. We diligently incorporate innovations into the care we provide to every patient who seeks our expertise. 

We advocate a holistic approach to patient care, customizing our approach to individual health profiles and mental well-being. Patient education is of utmost importance, as we endeavor to address all questions and concerns that arise. To fulfill this purpose, our neurology hospital in Pune, adhering to our guiding principle of ‘Patient First’, is equipped with all the necessary tests and facilities under one roof. 

Common Conditions & Complexities

Neurologists are pivotal in addressing a range of common conditions, including headaches, epilepsy, memory-related issues like Alzheimer's Disease, Parkinson's disease, vertigo, brain tumors, chronic pain, imbalance, multiple sclerosis, and strokes. Our comprehensive stroke care program integrates emergency protocols to ensure timely and effective treatment.

If you experience symptoms such as persistent headaches, double vision, dizziness or vertigo, imbalance, weakness, tingling or numbness, sudden personality changes, memory problems, tremors, slowed mobility, difficulty in walking, backaches, urinary control issues, or episodes of unconsciousness, restlessness, or abnormal behavior, it is imperative to consult a neurologist. Early diagnosis and prompt treatment under the guidance of the right specialists frequently lead to favorable outcomes in most neurological conditions.

Comprehensive Neurological Assessment

Given the intricate nature of neurology, a meticulous evaluation involving detailed medical history and thorough physical examination is imperative to arrive at accurate conclusions. Taking shortcuts in this process can pose significant risks, underscoring the critical importance of allocating sufficient time, expertise, and experience in evaluating neurological cases. Only consultants who are fully trained, well-qualified, and extensively experienced can effectively navigate this complexity for each patient under our care.

Analysis of Complex Cases 

Navigating through various specialist opinions can often leave patients feeling bewildered and disheartened. Our team is adeptly trained, drawing from methodologies employed in leading global centers, to approach each case from multiple perspectives. This enables us to discern primary conclusions and devise tailored solutions for each patient, offering clarity and direction amidst complexity.

Neurological Consultations at Jupiter Hospital, Pune

Neurological disorders encompass a wide spectrum of conditions, some of which can effectively be managed through medication and non-surgical interventions. These include various neuropathies like G.B.S. and A.I.D.P. as well as disorders including:

  • Stroke
  • Epilepsy
  • Headaches (including migraines)
  • Vertigo
  • Dizziness
  • multiple sclerosis
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Dementia

Neuropsychology: Cognitive Assessment and Therapy

What we observe outwardly—walking, speaking, sensing—is merely a fraction of the intricate functions our brain orchestrates. Beneath the surface, our minds are constantly engaged in a complex interplay of voluntary and involuntary activities. 

This encompasses perceiving, analyzing, and interpreting our environment, understanding our own perspectives and personalities, drawing from societal and cultural knowledge, honing professional expertise, nurturing emotional connections, and contemplating past and future endeavors. Furthermore, these cognitive processes are intricately intertwined with our moods and physiological functions, such as heart rate, breathing, and digestion, all regulated by the same remarkable organ: the brain. 

Delving into this fascinating interplay between external manifestations and internal cognitive mechanisms lies at the heart of neuropsychology. Our team of dedicated neuropsychologists and psychologists not only scientifically assesses various cognitive functions but also quantifies and evaluates their quality, spanning from memory and language to judgment, insight, and intellectual capacity. Utilizing advanced scoring methodologies, we meticulously analyze these cognitive processes, facilitating the diagnosis of conditions like dementia and memory-related behavioral disorders.

Moreover, this comprehensive evaluation serves as a valuable tool in monitoring recovery post-brain trauma, stroke, and other neurological conditions. Through our meticulously designed rehabilitation programs, we aim to optimize brain function and facilitate the most effective recovery possible for our patients.

Jupiter Hospital’s Counseling Services in Pune

Navigating neurological conditions can often be daunting and complex, compounded by the abundance of misinformation circulating online, which can exacerbate anxiety and uncertainty among patients. Patient education and involvement in decision-making are pivotal for successful treatment outcomes. In cases such as Parkinson’s disease, dementia, and other degenerative conditions, caregivers and families may find themselves overwhelmed, unsure of how to provide appropriate care and support.

Our team of counselors is extensively trained in comprehensively understanding each unique scenario and tailoring care strategies that encompass various social, educational, financial, and familial dynamics. Beyond elucidating disease processes and prognostic possibilities, we actively assist in addressing specific concerns related to home care and anticipated challenges.

The emotional toll of receiving a difficult diagnosis can be profound for both patients and their families. We provide guidance on coping strategies tailored to address these psychological challenges. Additionally, our experienced clinical psychologists are equipped to intervene in various contemporary issues, including marital discord, parenting challenges, family conflicts, substance abuse, stress, anxiety, depression, and suicidal ideation.

The increasing recognition of conditions like Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) presents unique challenges, particularly due to limited medical treatment options. To address this, we have developed comprehensive counseling, monitoring, and management programs aimed at improving outcomes and alleviating burdens for patients and their families. Our dedicated team of psychologists stands ready to support individuals facing any of the aforementioned situations.


Crafting a meticulous, personalized exercise regimen targeting neurological components—comprising the brain, spine, nerves, and muscles—is pivotal for maximizing recovery and enhancing physical functionality in every case. Under the guidance of our highly qualified neurophysiologists, such a plan is meticulously devised and closely supervised throughout the treatment process, ensuring optimal outcomes for our patients.

Neurophysiology Services at Jupiter Hospital, Pune 

Utilizing cutting-edge equipment and expertise, we conduct a range of tests targeting nerves, muscles, and the spine to facilitate precise diagnoses of various conditions. Nerve conduction studies (NCS) assess the conduction of electrical impulses along different nerves and their corresponding muscle responses, furnishing invaluable insights and accurate diagnostic outcomes for numerous neurological disorders.
