Introduction

The Department of Neurology was started on 5TH JULY 2012 and is slowly growing to be an important part of the institute.  The Department comprises Faculty and Residents trained in the best institutes of India who work diligently in helping the patients with the latest and best protocols. It is now offering thrice a week OPD, i.e. Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9.30 am to 4.00pm and more than 20000(twenty thousand) patients were attended in the year 2019. The Department is also offering a multitude of investigations like EEG, Nerve conduction studies (NCS), Electromyography (EMG), VEP to diagnose various neurological ailments. The Department has an Indoor ward for detailed evaluation and work up of patients and provides consultations to the patients admitted with neurological diseases or comorbidites in various specialties.

The Department of Neurology at DRPGMC Tanda is the first in Neurology to start a super speciality course not only in Himachal Pradesh but also in all of north Indian states. This dept has also the distinction to start the first ever super speciality course in DRPGMC Tanda.

The Department was involved in developing protocols for treatment of Acute Brain Attack under the Telestroke project of Government of Himachal Pradesh. Under this the patients of Acute Brain Attack (hemiparesis) presenting within 4.5 hours of the onset of symptoms are treated with thrombolytic drugs. Around 75 patients have been treated so far at Dr RPGMC Tanda with this therapy. We are also connected with various other Hospitals (Zonal/District/Civil) of the state and provide consultations and CME (continuous medical education) to the treating physicians regarding management of Acute Brain Attack.

The Department is also involved in teaching the MBBS and Post graduate students of the institute. We are regularly conducting theory and clinical classes of the students to teach them the nuances of clinical Neurology. The faculty is also associated with various research works in collaboration with other Departments of the institute.
