Best Neurologists in Dubai
The German Neuroscience Center is a leading Neurology clinic in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Our Department of Neurology offers comprehensive healthcare services in the diagnosis and treatment of neurological diseases.
Neurology is a branch of medicine that deals with diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the nervous system. The nervous system consists of a complex collection of nerves and specialized cells referred to as neurons that transmit signals to other parts of the body. Neurological diseases or disorders include:
- Headaches and Migraines
- Vertigo and Dizziness
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Back pain
- Dementia and Alzheimer’s
- Brain tumors
- Neuromuscular Diseases
- Neuro-inflammatory and Neuro infective conditions
- Neuro-Immunological conditions
- Cerebrovascular diseases
- Movement disorders
Our neurology doctors in Dubai are internationally recognized experts fully capable of providing a range of health care services for the conditions mentioned above. We offer a variety of diagnostic options for both adult and paediatric neurology cases in Dubai, which include:
EEG examines brain activity. The procedure involves placing electrodes made up of small metal discs on the scalp. These electrodes identify minor electrical charges that are a result of activity in the brain cells, which are then amplified and displayed.
This procedure is used to detect the early onset of dementia and Alzheimer’s
NCV tests include measuring the swiftness of conduction of electrical impulses through the nerve. During this examination, numerous metal disc electrodes are positioned on the skin, and a shock-emitting electrode is put directly on top of the nerve area. Multiple rapid electrical pulses are passed through the nerve, and the muscle contraction response time is recorded. This is done on both sides of the body for comparison.
EMG tests examine the electrical activity of muscles. This examination is usually correlated with the results of an NCV test to determine muscle weakness or problems with nerves that activate the muscles.
- Ultrasonography tests
These are non-invasive ultrasound methods used to examine blood circulation and blood vessels in the brain. These tests may include:
- Extracranial Doppler (ECD)
- Transcranial Doppler (TCD)
- Duplex sonography: A duplex ultrasound involves the combination of the traditional ultrasound and Doppler ultrasound which sounds waves to measure the speed of blood and so on.
- Evoked Potentials
Evoked potential tests determine electrical activity in the brain in response to sight, sound, light, or touch stimulation. The stimuli conveyed to the brain from these senses induce minor electrical signals. These signals travel through the nerves to a particular region of the brain where they are received by electrodes, amplified, and displayed for interpretation. These include:
- Magnetic Evoked potentials (MEP)
- Visually evoked potential (VEP)
- Somato-sensitive evoked potentials (SSEP)
- Acoustically evoked potentials (AEP)
SSR is used to diagnose the functional impairment of sympathetic fibers in peripheral nerves from the brain to the limbs.
ENG examinations are used to determine involuntary movements triggered by a condition referred to as nystagmus. This procedure can also be used to diagnose dizziness, vertigo or balance dysfunction.
Prof. Dr. Erich Ringelstein
Prof. Erich Ringelstein is a Neurologist and Psychiatrist, he was the Head of Neurology Department at the University Hospital of Münster in Germany, managing eighty beds, a neurological intensive care unit and a stroke unit as well. Prof. Ringelstein also managed subdivisions that covered neuromuscular disorders, sleep disorders epileptic seizures, movement disorders, multiple sclerosis, as well as, dementia and cognitive impairment. Prof. Ringelstein was very active in academic teaching and was awarded for these efforts several times. He is trained in epileptology, neuroradiology, neuro geriatrics, evoked potentials, neurovascular and neuromuscular ultrasound. In 1992, Prof. Ringelstein received the Hugo Spatz Prize from the German Neurological Society for his research on cerebrovascular disease. Prof. Ringelstein is an active member of the editorial boards of scientific journals like Stroke, European Neurology, Cerebrovascular Diseases, Journal of Neuroimaging. He serves as a Reviewer for well-known journals like Stroke, Brain, Neurology, Annals of Neurology and others. Prof. Ringelstein was trained in Mainz University, Aachen Medical Faculty and Bonn University Hospital. In 1987, he worked as a Research Fellow at Scripps Clinic and Research Foundation in La Jolla, CA, USA. In 2006, Prof. Ringelstein received an Honorary Doctor title from the University of Debrecen, Hungary, for his intensive and fruitful scientific collaboration with this university hospital. He was elected Corresponding Member of the Austrian Stroke Society.
