Around 400 doctors from Mumbai learned managing neurological disorders including stroke, Parkinson’s, epilepsy and brain tumor, at Continuing Medical Education ‘Neurosciences Update 2020’ in Global Hospital, Mumbai.
Neurological disorders are diseases that affect the brain, the spinal cord and nerves. Today, the number of people suffering from neurological disorders is increasing at a rapid rate.
Dr. Shirish Hastak, Regional Director, Neurology, Stroke and Neurocritical Care, Global Hospital, Mumbai, said, “The sole motto of this CME was to educate the doctors about life-changing neurological disorders. Informative sessions about interventions when it comes to ischemic stroke and current guidelines, how window of opportunity in certain ischemic stroke patients can be extended up to 24 hours (in selected cases), improving quality of life in Parkinson’s disease with deep brain stimulation (DBS), how endoscopic surgery can help tackle the problem, and how surgery can help in epilepsy, were conducted by renowned doctors.”
“This initiative by the hospital has received a good response from the doctors. The doctors will be able to guide patients regarding the surgery, medications, other available treatments, and how a patient can lead a normal life after neurological problems. In the near future, the hospital is determined to conduct more awareness programs like this one,” said Dr. Vivek Talaulikar, Chief Executive Officer, Global Hospital, Mumbai.
