The newly opened department of neurology at super-specialty hospital Shireen Bagh is bringing new hope to the patients in Kashmir for treatment of many diseases with its full fledged infrastructure and expertise.

Last month, the much awaited neurology department of Government Medical College Srinagar was thrown open at super-specialty hospital Shireen Bagh. 

With a team of four super-specialists, headed by Dr Bashir A Sanai, the new department has already provided treatment to hundreds of patients suffering from neurological disorders.

The department is organising its first CME at the hospital on Parkinson’s disease, a progressive disorder of the nervous system on Saturday (21 April 2018). The event coincides with World Parkinson’s Day and will include sessions on awareness for patients and caregivers as well as general population. This will be apart from the educational deliberations for experts.

The hospital, which is easily accessible to patients, being located in the heart of the city, is treating all major neurological disorders. Dr Sanai, while speaking about the facility said that the department, being adjacent to GMC Srinagar and SMHS Hospital, had backup of departments of emergency, medicine, neuro surgery, radiology and other required department. 

“We are providing state-of-art care to entire Kashmir, especially to those who come from economically challenged backgrounds,” he said.

The department has five day OPD, all days of the week except Friday and Sunday. “Stroke, epilepsy, movement disorders, headaches, dementia, Parkinson’s disease, neuromuscular disorders, neuro-genetics and demyelenating diseases, especially multiple sclerosis,” he said. Dr Sanai is also the founding member of multiple sclerosis support group of Kashmir.

The department has also started thrombolysis for stroke patients, soon after it started to operate from super-specialty hospital.

In Kashmir, as per a study in nineties, 16 people, per lakh population suffer from Parkinson’s disease.
