Because every life deserves world-class care

Treating brain conditions- from common to rare- our team of expert & experienced neuro specialists and neurosurgeons have been at the forefront of providing disease specific & patient focused approach across a spectrum of neurological disorders including tumours of brain, spine and the nerves that connect them; Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy as well as cerebral palsy, stroke and mental & psychiatric health disorders among others.

  • Types of neurological disorders
  • Causes
  • Symptoms
  • Epilepsy:
    • It is a kind of neurological disorder which is characterized by unpredictable and unprovoked seizures. Among its most commonly known causes are brain injury or family tendency and can affect people of all ages. With the help of medication, proper care, and dietary therapies, it can be kept under control.
  • Brain tumors:
    • A more serious kind of neurological disorder, it is often classified as benign or malignant according to the grades. The higher the grade number, the more aggressively the tumour behaves.
  • Parkinson’s disease:
    • A progressive nervous system disorder, it affects the movement by causing severe dexterity and speech issues as it advances. Although it can’t be cured, but with proper medication and care, the patient’s condition can be controlled and even improved over a period of time.
  • Spinal cord tumour:
    • It is referred to formation of abnormal mass of tissues in the spinal cord area. The areas that get affected the most by it are cervical, lumbar, sacrum & thoracic and it can grow from non-cancerous to cancerous if not treated in time.
  • Memory disorder:
    • Memory disorders can range from mild to severe causing memory lapse from time to time. Its cause can be attributed to a number of factors including nutritional deficiencies, reaction to medication, deteriorating mental health and excessive substance abuse among others. Its conditions include dementia, Alzheimer and depression.
  • Multiple sclerosis:
    • A potentially disabling disease of the brain and the spinal cord, it is caused due to attack of the immune system on the protective sheath that covers nerve fibres. As the problem progresses, the brain loses its ability to communicate with the rest of the body leading to permanent damage to the nerves.

There are more than 600 kinds of neurological disorders that are recognised by science. However, their conditions and causes may differ, some of the most commonly known ones are as follows:

  • Genetics
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Lifestyle related issues

Frequently asked questions

Heart diseases are believed to claim lives of more than 40% of those who die each year. For which, we have already answered the questions, you might ask.


  • What is cardiovascular disease, and what are its risk factors?
  • What can I do to prevent heart disease?
  • When should I see a doctor to know my risk?
  • If a family member has heart disease, what are some of the things I can do to protect myself?
  • Are there other treatments available for the clogged arteries besides Bypass Surgery?
  • Which exercises are considered best to help prevent heart disease?
What is cardiovascular disease, and what are its risk factors?

The term cardiovascular disease covers both heart and blood vessel disorders. To prevent these diseases, you must understand the risk factors and act upon managing them.

These include:

  • Tobacco use
  • High BP and cholesterol
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Lack of physical activity
What can I do to prevent heart disease?

It is crucial to practice a healthy lifestyle with a nutritious diet and adequate sleep. Quit tobacco on your own or with the support of a physician. Get screened periodically for cardiovascular risk factors, such as diabetes and hypertension. Along with that, cut cholesterol- trim the oil and fat from your diet, and maintain a healthy weight. Prevention at an initial stage is far better than waiting for the warning signs of heart disease that happen after damage already has been done.

When should I see a doctor to know my risk?

No matter what your age, you should consult a cardiologist if you are concerned about heart disease or have a family history. Discuss with your doctor about any family history of high cholesterol,enlarged heart or congestive heart failure. Keep in mind, the earliest symptoms of heart disease may not be chest pain. They may be fatigue or shortness of breath.

If a family member has heart disease, what are some of the things I can do to protect myself?

Your doctor should evaluate your family history and lifestyle. Following that, you will receive a guideline for improving your diet and making exercise a regular part of your life. If your cholesterol levels are high, your physician may recommend medications to help lower cholesterol and decrease your risk of a first heart attack. In addition, some people may benefit from an instant CT scan, which is  helpful in assessing people at higher risk who require a more aggressive approach to prevention.

Are there other treatments available for the clogged arteries besides Bypass Surgery?

Yes, there are newer treatments that have been introduced. Clogged arteries occur when the calcium deposits, fats, salt and fibre accumulates within the walls of the artery. The clogged arteries put a person at risk of heart attack. The other treatments available besides Bypass Surgery are Angioplasty and Stent.

Which exercises are considered best to help prevent heart disease?

Cardio and Aerobic activities such as swimming, brisk walking, running or biking, strengthens the heart.
