Botox therapy for movement disorders is available.

The department has advanced digital EEG systems for recording the electrical activity of the brain which is an important diagnostic in the evaluation of epilepsies. An eight-channel electroneuromyograph (ENMG) equipment is present for evaluating the various diseases of peripheral nerves and muscles. The department is able to cater to basic and advanced electrodiagnostic evaluation of the neuromuscular disorders and also for evaluation of visual, auditory and somatosensory sensory pathways by evoked potentials.
