Bring the patient to the nearest Stroke Ready Hospital!
The Department of Neurosciences is one of the youngest departments of the UP College of Medicine and the Philippine General Hospital. Initially a section of the Department of Medicine, it achieved autonomy in September 30, 1999, under the leadership of Dr. Martesio Perez who was its first chair. Its creation was a response to the growing need of specialized care directed towards neurologic patients. It consists of the Sections of Adult Neurology, Pediatric Neurology and Neurosurgery.
