This clinic provides comprehensive care in evaluation and management of patients with vertigo. Vertigo refers to the symptoms of giddiness or spinning sensation. Vertigo could be either central (due to neurological causes) or peripheral (due to vestibular or otological apparatus). The Brain and Ear are important organs for hearing and balance. Balance of the body depends on inputs from ears, eyes and the nervous system.
