It requires intensive training of nearly 15 years to become a well-qualified neurologist or a neurosurgeon. One of the most important aspects of treating a neurological patient is the combination of accuracy and experience of the treating physician or surgeon.
The fundamental unit of the brain and nervous system is the nerve cells or neurons. There are over 88 billion neurons and over a trillion connections amongst them. Diseases like headache, epilepsy, Parkinson’s, paralysis, memory problems all originate in the brain. While deadly diseases like brain tumours or infections are relatively rare, we commonly deal with patients suffering from other brain, spine, and nerve illnesses. In an advanced world where new research and treatment modalities continuously and dynamically change, specialists trained in certain complicated neurological conditions like epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, dementia, multiple sclerosis, stroke, etc., are required to optimise pharmacological and non-pharmacological management of such cases.
We at Jupiter Hospital take pride in making a complete team of such specialists. They are strongly supported by world-class ancillary specialists like neuropsychology, speech-language pathology and swallowing therapy, neurophysiology and neurological intensive care. We keep ourselves updated with the most recent advances in the world of brain science, and strive to bring those advances to each patient reaching us. We believe in a holistic approach to deal with the patient’s individual health profile and mental status, educating the patient and family about their medical conditions, addressing all the issues that arise in their minds. All necessary tests and facilities have been made available under the same roof for this purpose at Jupiter Hospital, Pune. From medical treatment that leaves us hundreds of positive feedbacks to the majority of successful outcomes in the most complicated surgeries of the brain, we take pride in our ideology: Patient First!
While wishing you the best brain health, our Neuro team will be glad to assist you towards this goal.
