The clinic caters to patients suffering from stroke, epilepsy, brain tumors, muscle weakness, headaches, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases, neurodevelopmental disorders, dementia, multiple sclerosis, and myasthenia.

In the short period in which I have been here, I have seen many stroke patients and unfortunately most come in days or weeks after symptoms onset. There is a term we use - ‘time is brain’, which means the earlier you get to the hospital the more likely we can save your brain from irreversible damage.

Among other conditions he emphasised persons should seek neurological intervention for are double vision, dizziness, bad headaches, recurrent falls, problems with standing, balance, walking and coordination.

Dr Tamas Cseh

Dr Cseh, who earned his medical degree at the University of Pécs in Hungary, worked as a Consultant Neurologist at the Manchester Centre for Clinical Neurosciences, the largest neuroscience centre in the United Kingdom, where he treated patients suffering from many types of neurology diseases. His experience spans all fields of general neurology with a special interest in neuromuscular diseases and electromyography.

Neurology is a specialised medical field that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and management of disorders affecting the central nervous system, which includes the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves.

Through technological advancements and studies some neurological conditions, although not irreversible, when treated early can foster better outcomes and quality of life for patients.

HSA’s Medical Director Dr Delroy Jefferson noted that the addition of Dr. Cseh to the team will reduce the need for patient referrals outside the HSA.

Dr Cseh’s addition bolsters HSA’s multidisciplinary approach in delivering comprehensive care of our patients providing immense benefits to the patient

In addition, patients undergoing chemotherapy will also benefit from Dr Cseh’s expertise through the introduction of the NeuroHaematology Clinic, an added subspecialty/service under the HSA Haematology, Oncology, and Chemotherapy Centre.

There’s an excellent chemotherapy service here at the HSA, but unfortunately with many chemotherapies, patients can develop several types of nerve disorders associated with either the therapy they get for the cancer or from the cancer itself. In the NeuroHeamotology Clinic, my job is to tease out what is causing the nerve damage for the patient who has cancer and is undergoing chemotherapy
