Specialization and Expertise

Strokes

A stroke is one of the most common neurological emergencies. Stroke occurs when a blood vessel in the brain either gets blocked or ruptures and causes neurological dysfunction including loss of consciousness and paralysis.

Dementias (Alzheimer's disease)

Dementia is a term used to describe a set of symptoms indicating loss of intellectual ability including memory, that interfere with daily life. Alzheimer is one of the common types of dementias.

Epilepsy

Epilepsy is characterized by unprovoked seizures or fits caused by sudden and unregulated electrical activity in the brain. Epilepsy is treatable provided the patient complies with medication and lifestyle changes as required. Surgery may also sometimes be required in a few of the resistant cases.

Migraine

Migraine is characterized by its recurrent and episodic headache usually on one side of the head. It can be triggered by certain factors like lack of sleep, skipping a meal or stress. It can be easily controlled with medications and lifestyle modification.

Parkinsons Disease

Parkinsons disease is a disorder characterized by slowness of movement, tremors and rigidity of the limbs. It is generally well controlled by properly tailored medication regimen. Functional Surgery (Deep Brain Stimulation- DBS) also forms a method of treating this debilitating disease.
