Parkinson's Disease Curable Through Deep Brain Stimulation: Dr Jindal
Srinagar- Neuro-Modulation Team from Fortis Hospital led by Dr Anupam Jindal in Srinagar addressed a press conference on Thursday.
Dr Jindal said that a 64-year-old Patient was facing a distressing time as he was suffering from Parkinson's Disease and exhibited symptoms such as trembling of hands, arms, head, difficulty in speaking, stiffness of limbs and impaired coordination.
“He had become non-responsive to medicines and his symptoms had been progressing, while severely hampering his mental and physical health”.
Unable to bear the discomfort, the Patient approached Fortis Hospital Mohali, recently.
The Neuro-Modulation Team at Fortis Mohali discussed the Patient's case thoroughly and subsequently performed Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) surgery.
“Deep Brain Stimulation involved implanting electrodes inside the brain to produce electrical impulses, which helps treat affected cells and chemicals in the brain”
“Following good rehabilitation at Fortis Mohali, there was a marked improvement in the Patient's health and symptoms related to the disease began to subside” Slowly his life got back on track, and today he is leading a normal life.
He said Fortis Mohali is also the only private hospital outside NCR to have a dedicated Movement Disorder Clinic which is held every Saturday, where a team comprising a neurologist, neurosurgeon and neuro-radiologist evaluates patients having tremors, ataxia, Huntington's Chorea, dystonia in detail.
