Hello Suresh, If your father has suffered from a lacunar stroke, early treatment increases his chance of survival and may prevent further damage. Depending on how badly the underlying structures are damaged. Recovery varies for each person and depends on the severity of the stroke it can result in some brain damage. You should get him treated in hospitals from A-grade cities as they have updated technologies for all kinds of treatment and have some of the best specialists in the world. 

For your convenience, we have listed the Best Neurologists in India.

You should come to Mumbai for treatment of this severity since Mumbai has better equipped hospital that has the technology and the doctors that have been trained and are experienced in their fields. You will also have lots of options for both economical hospitals like Tata memorial hospitals, where the wait list will be longer. And also premium hospitals such as Jaslok, Fortis, S.L. Raheja. They will be a lot more costly but the quality of services is also higher.

Hello Shaurya, The initial evaluation of the cyst is done by the Neurologist, who might obtain imaging to get to the source of the problem. If they discover a structural problem, like a cyst in the brain as in the case of your mother, they refer the patient to a neurosurgeon who treats the cyst surgically. So, kindly refer the below link which includes the information of the Best Neurosurgeons of different cities. Refer: http://www.clinicspots.com/best-neurosurgeons-in-india/ For any further inquiry feel free to message us back. Hope this answer helps you.

Hello Mohammad, Below we have listed a few treatments that will help to reduce your neck and waist pain: Cortisone injections : These may be injected into the epidural space, around the spinal cord. Cortisone is an anti-inflammatory drug. It helps reduce inflammation around the nerve roots. Injections may also be used to numb areas thought to be causing the pain. Botox : Botox (botulism toxin), according to some early studies, is thought to reduce pain by paralyzing sprained muscles in spasm. These injections are effective for about 3 to 4 months. Traction: Pulleys and weights are used to stretch the back. This may result in a herniated disk moving back into position. It can also relieve pain, but only while traction is applied. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT): CBT can help manage chronic back pain by encouraging new ways of thinking. It may include relaxation techniques and ways of maintaining a positive attitude. Studies have found that patients with CBT tend to become more active and do exercise, resulting in a lower risk of back pain recurrence. But before undergoing any treatment we suggest you visit your nearest Neurologist and get the complete detail. Hope this answer helps you.

My father was unable to walk properly (not able to move the legs freely). Unable to lift the weights, foot drop, unable to write properly sometimes, some muscle loss was seen in limbs. We have gone to hospitals in Hyderabad but there was no improvement in his condition. Please help me in finding out the doctor and treatment for this condition?

Generally there are 4 types of Resection to remove a tumor: 

  1. Gross total: The entire tumor is removed. However, sometimes microscopic cells may remain. 
  2. Subtotal: A large portion of the tumor is removed. 
  3. Partial: Only part of the tumor is removed.
  4. Biopsy only: Only a small portion is removed, which is used for a biopsy.

 

The treatment or surgery depends on several factors like type of cancer, the stage of cancer, location, age of patient, general health, associated comorbidities and others. Consult an oncologist, who on evaluation of the patient will guide you to choose the best treatment suitable for the patient.
