Overview

We offer a wide range of services and treatments for Stroke, Disorders of the Nervous System, Brain Traumas, Neck and Spine conditions. Comprising of Consultants in the field of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Interventional Neuroradiology, the team is committed in ensuring that patients receive the highest quality of neurological care as well as achieving optimal spine health.

The Centre is amongst the few hospitals in Johor that provides Acute Stroke Management service within the “golden hour” whereby Intravenous Thrombolysis and Endovascular intervention is administered. The Centre is also supported by a team of experienced Emergency Physicians who are available around the clock and trained to handle the immediate assessment and management of patients with symptoms suggestive of Stroke upon their arrival at the A&E (a pivotal role in Acute Ischemic Stroke which helps to reduce door-to-needle / onset-to-treatment time).

Our Facilities

  • Day Procedure Unit
    1. Electroencephalography (EEG): It is an electrophysiological monitoring test that records electrical activity of the brain. This helps to support the diagnosis of Epilepsy for example.
    2. Electromyography (EMG): It is an electrodiagnostic medical technique for evaluating and recording the electrical activity produced by skeletal muscles. This helps to diagnose conditions like Muscular, Nerve Disorders and Herniated Disc.
    3. Nerve Conduction Study (NCS): It is used to test how fast and how strong an electrical impulse travel through nerve pathway. This helps in diagnosis of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Peripheral Nerve Diseases.
    4. Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS)
