Welcome to the Neurology Department at South Sinai Hospital - Sharm El-Sheikh. Neurology is a vital branch of medicine that focuses on the study of the Nervous System, which includes the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. Our dedicated team of well-trained and experienced consultants, specialists, and registrars provide exceptional neurology care, adhering to international standards and guidelines.
Our Scope of Services includes:
Stroke Care Unit: Our experienced team is dedicated to the management of acute stroke cases, whether ischemic or hemorrhagic. We specialize in the treatment of hyperacute cases presenting within the crucial time window for thrombolytic therapy. "The Stroke Unit," part of our neurology department, provides medical care for all types of strokes, including patients eligible for thrombolytic therapy within the critical three-hour window. Thrombolytic therapy is an advanced medication administered within 4.5 hours from the onset of stroke to dissolve blood clots and restore blood flow to the brain.
Epilepsy Care and Epilepsy Monitoring Unit: Our epilepsy clinic offers comprehensive treatment programs, including Epilepsy Monitoring Unit care, for patients with simple and intractable seizures. We provide 24-hour emergency assistance and neurocritical care for cases of frequent seizures. We are also developing an epilepsy surgery center, recruiting national and international epilepsy surgery teams for selected cases.

For acute stage or relapse cases, our ER or daycare unit provides careful administration of IV methylprednisolone with close cardiorespiratory monitoring. In the remitting phase, our comprehensive consultants offer interferons and other Disease-Modifying Drugs, providing extensive explanations and discussions with patients and their relatives.
