  • What Neurology Services in Dubai do we provide?

    At the German Neuroscience Center hospital in Dubai, we offer a wide range of Neurology services for our patients with neurological disorders. We have a team of highly experienced neurologists who offer the latest in diagnosis and treatment options to provide the best possible care for our patients. In our neurology hospitals we offer Neurology services including:

      • neurological consultations including neurological examinations.
      • neurological tests, such as Nerve conduction velocity (NCV), Electromyography (EMG), Electroencephalopathy (EEG), Ultrasound, Evoked Potentials (EP), Neurofeedback, and QEEG, neuropsychological testing. Nerve conduction velocity is a measure of the speed at which nerve impulses are transmitted down a peripheral nerve. With this test each single nerve can be investigated, and nerve damages can be located. Electromyography is a test that measures the activity of individual muscle cells. EEG is a test that measures the electrical activity of the brain. It is used to diagnose epilepsy and other disorders of the brain. Ultrasound is a diagnostic test that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of the body. With this test, it is possible to see any problem of the blood vessels feeding the brain with blood and inside the brain. Moreover, with Ultrasound it is possible to visualize peripheral nerves and detect damages of the peripheral nervous system. Evoked Potentials is a test that measures the nerve response to specific stimuli. It is used for suspected Multiple Sclerosis and other nerve conditions. Neuropsychological testing is a type of psychological testing that is used to assess the cognitive and behavioural effects of neurological disorders.
      • lumbar puncture (spinal tap), if needed to rule out a variety of neurologic disorders, such as meningitis or encephalitis and Multiple Sclerosis. A lumbar puncture is a procedure that uses a small needle to remove cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) from the spinal canal. This fluid surrounds and protects the brain and spinal cord.
      • neurological treatment such as medication, lifestyle adjustments, repositioning maneuvers, referral to neurosurgery, and physiotherapy, neuroimaging such as MRI, CT scan, and PET scan, injections for various neurological conditions, lab, and pathology testing for various neurological conditions.

  • What is the difference between Neurology and Neurosurgery?

    You might be wondering what the difference is between a neurologist and a neurosurgeon. The two are not the same and should not be treated as such. A neurologist is a medical professional who specializes in Neurology while a neurosurgeon is a medical professional who specializes in neurosurgery.

    A neurologist will focus on treating the patient conservatively with medication and other forms of treatment to avoid surgery in best case. A neurosurgeon will operate on the nervous system whereas a neurologist will not. A neurosurgeon operates in a Neurology hospital, while a neurologist usually works in an outpatient neurology clinic in Dubai. Therefore, it is important to know the difference when searching for a neurologist. At the German Neuroscience Center, we focus on Neurology and only refer patients to a neurosurgery hospital if all other therapy options seem not satisfying for the patient.

  • When to visit a Neurology Hospital in Dubai?

    Usually, all common neurology disorders can be treated at our outpatient Neurology clinics in Dubai, and it is not necessary to be admitted to a Neurology Hospital in Dubai. However, if you are experiencing acute life-threatening situations like acute stroke, loss of consciousness, sudden onset of paralysis or any other serious neurological symptoms it is important that you visit the nearest emergency room or a Neurology Hospital in Dubai near you. If you are suffering from any neurological disorder and are not sure if you need to see a Neurology Hospital in Dubai or an outpatient clinic, please feel free to contact us and we will guide you to the most appropriate medical facility.

  • Should I visit a Male or Female Neurologist in Dubai?

    Even though from a medical standpoint there is no difference if you see a male or female Neurologist, it might be a personal preference that should be considered. You need to be comfortable with the gender of your Neurologist, to be able to openly provide personal information regarding your condition. Although this is a personal choice, you need to consider the possibility that the Neurologist with the skills or experience you need might not be of the gender you prefer. The good news is all Neurologists are skilled to effectively give the right care for all men and women. Therefore, your primary concern should be how much experience a doctor has in treating disorders related to yours.

  • What are the costs to see a Neurologist in Dubai?

    In best case your insurance covers the complete treatment, and you don’t have to pay anything.

    If your insurance doesn’t cover or you don’t have an insurance, the price becomes one factor to be considered while choosing the best Neurologist for you.

    Make sure you compare the same quality of providers. Dubai is a very diverse city. This reflects in the quality of healthcare. You will find a rather low-quality provider with no outstanding education and experience offering consultations for 100aed-400aed. High-quality providers from reputable institutes offer the same services for 400aed-1200aed. It’s a personal choice of how important the price is when choosing your Neurologist. It might also depend on the neurological disease. For rather serious conditions, you may want to see the absolutely best and put less importance on a lower price. Moreover, being correctly diagnosed and treated can save money by making redundant visits unnecessary.

  • Are the Best Neurologists in Dubai Covered by Insurance Companies?

    Especially for chronic conditions, it might be important to look for a neurological center or Neurologist in Dubai that falls within your insurance cover. You should be able to receive the most out of your insurance benefit and pay the least out-of-pocket for the treatment you need. Although cost plays an integral role, you should also consider other factors such as credentials, quality of clinic, experience, and others, before you make a choice.

    The German Neuroscience Center is the leading Neurology Center in the UAE and beyond. We are covered by almost all major insurance companies. Give us a call to check your coverage.
