Awareness on Parkinson’s disease

 Apollo Hospitals, Asia’s largest and most trusted multi-speciality chain of hospitals became the first hospital in South India to start a fully functional advanced centre for Movement Disorders. The centre was launched in the presence of Prof. (Dr.) Paresh K. Doshi, Group Advisor, Functional Neurosurgery, Apollo Hospitals.

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.
