    • It is a kind of neurological disorder which is characterized by unpredictable and unprovoked seizures. Among its most commonly known causes are brain injury or family tendency and can affect people of all ages. With the help of medication, proper care, and dietary therapies, it can be kept under control.
  • Stroke:
    • A more serious kind of neurological disorder, it is often classified as benign or malignant according to the grades. The higher the grade number, the more aggressively the tumour behaves.
  • Parkinson’s disease and Movement disorders:
    • A progressive nervous system disorder, it affects the movement by causing severe dexterity and speech issues as it advances. Although it can’t be cured, but with proper medication and care, the patient’s condition can be controlled and even improved over a period of time.

Patient testimonials

Here’s what our patients have to say about our services..

My partner and I visited the Regency City Clinic in Kanpur following several failed fertility treatments at an earlier fertility clinic for high oestrogen levels. The staff members were very professional and empathetic. The preliminary visit resulted in a gynaecological test, that led to the early diagnosis of a mild ovarian dermoid cyst. Following the removal of the cyst, we were successful in our first IVF trial. I have been blessed with a baby boy 2 months ago. Thank you, Regency!

Kanpur

I was very apprehensive about being diagnosed with painful stones in my kidney. I was afraid of undergoing surgery. After, meeting with renal specialists at Regency, I found out that every stone does not require an operation. With modern techniques of ESWL (Lithotripsy) PCNL & URS, which are non-invasive, I finally got rid of the stones for all times.


Rahul Trivedi

I came to Regency Hospital, Kanpur for the treatment of my liver condition. We learned about Regency through friends in my workplace. The team at Regency provided me with top-notch service and personalized attention, much more than I expected. The staff is very helpful and cooperative. I already have and will surely recommend this remarkable health institution to my family and friends in the future.


Udit Kumar

Kanpur

I had terrible pelvic pain from the last 6-7 months, and that’s when I was diagnosed with ovarian cysts. Thinking and reading about the cysts made me horrified, but I wanted to cure myself as soon as possible. My aunt, being a doctor herself, recommended Regency Hospital for the treatment of my cysts, and I went ahead with her opinion. From one month, I have been regular with my periods, I have no pelvic pain and I have gotten rid of the cysts. Thanks, Regency!

What does a neurologist treat?

A neurologist and neurosurgeon both treat patients with neurological disorders that impact the brain, spinal cord, nerves, and their surrounding and supporting structures. These structures include the skull, spine, blood vessels, membranes that surround the brain and spinal cord, and membranes lining the skull and vertebral canal.

What are some of the warning signs indicating you should see a neurologist?

Knowing when it’s time to see a neurologist means looking for some key indicators, which is why it’s important to seek medical advice early on. If you experience any of these symptoms, consult a neurologist:

  • Persistent sleep problems
  • Memory loss
  • Dizziness
  • Persistent headaches/Migraine
  • Chronic pain/numbness
  • Stroke
  • Seizures
  • Tremors
  • Speech changes
What are the most common neurological disorders?

Can dizziness be a sign of something serious?

Feeling a bit lightheaded is a normal sensation that many people experience every now and then, but living with recurrent bouts of dizziness is anything but routine. There are several types of dizziness, any of which can be symptomatic of a benign problem or something more serious. Do not take dizziness lightly, immediately visit a neurology specialist near you.

Do I need to see a neurologist about my headaches?

While there are many simple reasons for a headache, such as stress or eye strain, if something is wrong it could be life-changing or life-threatening. When in doubt, consult a neurology specialist. It’s better to check your persistent symptoms than to let them go too long and develop into a larger problem. If your headaches cause pain in other areas or if the pain is on only one side of the head, you may need to see a neurologist.

How do I know if my headache is a migraine?

During a headache, you will pressure and aches around common areas including the forehead, temples, and back of the neck. They can last anywhere from a half-hour to several days, with the most common type being a tension headache, triggered by stress, muscle strain, and anxiety. However, during a migraine, the headache is more intense with other symptoms present such as nausea/vomiting, pain behind the ear/eye, blurred vision/temporary vision loss, sensitivity to light and sound, etc.
