The CME witnessed the participation of around 400 doctors from Mumbai
Global Hospital, Parel, Mumbai organized a CME regarding various neurological disorders such as Stroke, Parkinson’s, Epilepsy and Brain Tumour. The CME witnessed the participation of around 400 doctors from Mumbai, who got an opportunity to attend the interactive and educative sessions, and learn how to manage neurological disorders more efficiently. ‘Time is Brain’ was the message given through this conference.
Neurological disorders are diseases that affect the brain the spinal cord and nerve muscles. Today, the number of people suffering from neurological disorders is increasing at a rapid rate. To help people deal with them, Global Hospital, Parel, Mumbai, took a much-needed initiative to reduce the increasing burden of neurological disorders and improve the quality of life of patients.
Dr. Shirish Hastak, Regional Director, Neurology, Stroke and Neurocritical Care, Global Hospital, Mumbai, said, the Neurosciences Update 2020, was lauded and attended by general practitioners in large numbers. The sole motto of this CME was to educate the doctors about life-changing neurological disorders such as Stroke, Parkinson’s, Epilepsy and Brain Tumour. Informative sessions about interventions when it comes to ischemic stroke and current guidelines, how window 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 problem, and how surgery can help in epilepsy were conducted by renowned doctors.”
He added, “My session was about pupil’s “window to the brain”. Pupils tell you what happens inside an unconscious patient’s brain. We are one of the few hospitals in India with an electrode pupillometry to access changes in brain function. Timely treatment with a proper assessment of pupils can help save a stroke patient’s life.”
“Global Hospital relentlessly works for providing better healthcare to the patients. The hospital is committed to providing round-the-clock care, cutting edge technology, and expertise to help people fight various fatal conditions, and get back on track. The hospital comes up with interesting initiative, drives and campaigns to educate people, and help them take charge of their health. 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 can a patient lead a normal life after neurological problems. In the near future, the hospital is determined to conduct more awareness programs like this one,” Dr. Vivek Talaulikar, Chief Executive Officer, Global Hospital, Mumbai.
