In our neurology department, diseases such as headache, migraine, stroke, forgetfulness and dementia, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, sleep disorders, dizziness and imbalance are diagnosed and treated. Headache, which is one of the most common reasons for consulting a doctor, impairs the quality of life of many people due to wasted time due to misdiagnosis or not receiving proper treatment. Moreover, in some patients, the headache does not respond to painkillers and begins to become more frequent. In this situation, which we call resistant headache, medication and injection treatments are applied according to the needs of the person and the type of headache. Strokes, which occur as a result of occlusion or bleeding in the brain vessels, are among the diseases that cause disability. We aim to enable our patients to participate in normal life with approaches that include treating strokes, revealing the cause, and preventing new ones.

EEG is an examination performed to examine and interpret the electrical activity of the brain. EEG; It is used in the diagnosis of all kinds of diseases that disrupt the electrical activity of the brain.
In addition, it is a very important additional research method for many brain diseases.
The purpose of EEG in epilepsy is to support the diagnosis, classify it, investigate focal brain lesions and monitor epilepsy patients.
EEG recording is performed for all age groups (Child – Adult).
Routine (normal) EEG: Known as wakefulness EEG. It takes 20-30 minutes.
Sleep-wake EEG (Sleep EEG): Sleep-wake EEG recording is requested when 20 minutes awake and 40-60 minutes asleep, especially in children.
1 or 3 hour EEG Monitoring: Taken like routine and sleep EEG. Shooting time takes longer.
INFORMATION BEFORE EEG SCREENING
EEG is an examination performed to examine and interpret the electrical activity of the brain. It is used in the diagnosis of all kinds of diseases that disrupt the electrical activity of the brain.
Before the EEG is recorded, electrodes are attached to certain parts of the head.
EEG is a completely painless and harmless examination method.
The patient is not given electricity while the EEG is being taken.
With EEG, thoughts cannot be read and intelligence cannot be measured.
BEFORE COMING TO THE EEG SHOPPING:
The patient’s hair must be clean and dry (Some substances such as gel, dirt/oil negatively affect the recording quality.)
Must be full, come 15 minutes before the examination time.
Bring your previous EEG reports and request sheet with you.
Pediatric patients should not have toilet problems
If there are medications that are used regularly, they continue to be used on the day of the shooting.
!!Patients who will have a SLEEP EEG should stay sleepless at night!! (For a sleep EEG appointment at 18:00, a 10-year-old patient should wake up around 04:00 at night, then should not sleep at all until the shooting time, and should never be made to sleep, especially on the way to the hospital. (He should be sleep deprived so that he can sleep deeply at the appointment time)
EMG (Electro neuromyography) is an examination consisting of two parts. Examines muscles and nerves. In the first part; In the conduction study, it calculates how fast the nerves conduct conduction. A very mild electrical stimulation is given to the relevant nerve with the electrode placed on the muscles. It does not cause any harm to the patient. This examination is not performed in patients with a pacemaker, as it will cause “arrhythmia”.
In the second part, very thin, specially made “disposable” needles that are used only for one patient are used. The necessary muscles are entered and the activity of these muscles is checked. There is no electrical stimulation in this section. In this section, caution should be exercised in those who use a blood thinner called “Coumadin”.
