Lahore General Hospital (LGH) is renowned for its Neurological services. The first and only dedicated Neuroradiology Department was developed as an integral part of the Neurosurgery in 1970. By 1994, the Nueroradiology Department at LGH was declared as a separate and autonomous specialty. In 2000, through the efforts of the Departmentís own personnel, the Neuroradiology Department evolved from a diagnostic facility to a treatment facility offering neuroendovascular treatment and spinal intervention. By 2010, the treatment facilities were expanded to include neuroendovascular treatment for aneurysm (coiling), AVM and Dural AVF (embolization) that in the last four years alone has saved 600 lives.

EXISTING FACILITIES

        5 trained doctors

        6para-medical staff

ACHIEVEMENTS

Today the Neuroradiology Department functions as a diagnostic and treatment center for blood vessel diseases in the brain and spine including head and neck. Since 1990, the Department has diagnosed over three hundred thousand patients. After evolving into a treatment center in 2000, it has treated over fifteen hundred patients through different treatment facilities that have been added over the years.
