Awareness on Parkinson’s disease
Apollo Hospital’s Advanced Centre for Movement Disorder offers Deep Brain Stimulation Surgeries and other similar services to treat a wide spectrum of diseases such as Parkinson’s disease, Cerebral Palsy, Dystonia, Essential Tremor, Intractable Spasticity dyskinesia, depression and chronic painamong others.
During the launch Dr Paresh k Doshi, Group Advisor, Functional Neurosurgery, Apollo Hospitals said, “Awareness on Parkinson’s disease is high in Tamil Nadu but, the knowledge on the importance of ‘multi-disciplinary’ care has not reached the people. A person with Parkinson’s disease cannot be treated or cured completely by visiting a Neurologist alone; he/she would require a complete and comprehensive treatment to recover completely. Deep brain Stimulation is one such advanced treatment for patients with severe movement disorders.”
