Hospital reports successful case studies
Kuwait City, January 4, 2012
Leading private hospital in Kuwait, Dar Al Shifa Hospital, has announced that its neuroscience department has reported a number of successful case studies.
The department, which continues to provide top healthcare services to its patients, consistently coordinates with other departments in the hospital to provide a comprehensive diagnosis for patients, a statement from the hospital said.
Dr Hisham Al -Khayat, consultant neurological surgery & head of neuroscience department at Dar Al Shifa Hospital, said: “The hospital’s electroencephalography, nerve conduction studies and the electromyography machines continue to add value to the diagnosis of its patients. The hospital’s latest equipment aids in the assessment of the integrity and function of the brain, nerves, muscles and neuromuscular junction and their disorders.”
Dr Abdulaziz Ashkanany, specialist neurology, Dar Al Shifa Hospital, said: “The EEG measured brain waves are readily available tests that provide evidence of how the brain functions over time. The EMG however, finds diseases that damage muscle tissue, nerves, or even the junctions between nerves and muscle. The test also finds the cause of weakness, paralysis and even muscle twitching. The NCS on the other hand is done to find damage to the peripheral nervous system, which includes all the nerves that lead away from the brain and spinal cord along with the smaller nerves that branch out from those nerves.”
“It is the first hospital in Kuwait to introduce such leading equipment across private hospitals in Kuwait,” he added.
Dar Al Shifa Hospital was established in 1963, and has developed to become one of Kuwait’s leading private healthcare providers. The hospital includes a wide range of departments that covers all specialties. – TradeArabia News Service
