Neurological Conditions


Acoustic Neuroma, also known as Vestibular Schwannoma, is a non-cancerous and slow-growing tumor that typically originates from the vestibular nerve, which connects the inner ear to the brain. As the tumor progressively grows, it can put pressure on the adjacent nerves, leading to more severe symptoms.


Acromegaly is a hormonal disorder caused by excessive growth hormone production by the pituitary gland. Symptoms include gradual enlargement of the face, hands, and feet. Timely treatment is crucial as untreated acromegaly can lead to serious health problems.


Arachnoid cysts are fluid-filled sacs that can form within the brain or spinal cord. These cysts are often asymptomatic, but when they grow large enough, they can put pressure on surrounding tissues and cause symptoms. Arachnoid cysts in the brain may lead to headaches and seizures, while those in the spine can compress spinal nerve roots and cause pain, tingling, numbness, or gait imbalance.


Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM) is a medical condition that occurs when there are abnormal connections between arteries and veins in the brain or spine. This condition can result in hemorrhage, which can be life-threatening. Symptoms of AVM include seizures, headaches, weakness, numbness, and a distinctive “whooshing” sound.


Carpal Tunnel Syndrome causes pain, numbness, and tingling in the wrist and hand due to the compression of the median nerve. It’s common in people who use keyboards, play instruments or perform manual labor. Symptoms may include a dull ache in the wrist that spreads to the hand or forearm, weakness in the hands or fingers, and tingling or numbness in all fingers except the pinky.


A Cerebral Cavernous Malformation is a vascular anomaly of the brain, characterized by a cluster of abnormal blood vessels. These blood vessels have weaker walls than normal vessels and are prone to leakage, causing hemorrhage in the area of the cavernous malformation. People with this condition may experience various symptoms, including seizures, headaches, weakness in the arms or legs, visual impairment, and memory issues.


Chiari Malformation is a condition where a part of the brain sticks out into the spinal canal, causing symptoms. There are four types of Chiari Malformation, categorized by the location of the displaced brain tissue and developmental abnormalities. Symptoms may include headaches, neck pain, balance problems, numbness, dizziness, difficulty swallowing, vision problems, and slurred speech.


Hydrocephalus, commonly known as “water on the brain,” is a neurological condition that results from the accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in the ventricles of the brain. This causes increased pressure on the brain tissue and inside the skull. The accumulation of CSF can be due to overproduction or improper drainage of CSF. This condition is most commonly found in infants but can also affect adults. If left untreated, it can be life-threatening and may lead to long-term brain damage.


Trigeminal neuralgia is a neurological condition that is considered to be one of the most excruciatingly painful conditions that a patient can experience. It is often referred to as the “Suicide Disease”. This condition is characterized by sudden, severe, and intermittent facial pain that can last anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes. The pain can be triggered by even the slightest stimulation of the face and is caused by the Trigeminal nerve, which is responsible for conducting sensation in the face.
