Is Brain Stroke getting into your Head?

Most of us stroke the head and look nervous when the word ‘brain stroke’ has been heard. Do you think brain stroke is something you need to be seriously worried about? Yes, it is. All of us know that the aftermath of the stroke is complicated as it can lead to permanent disabilities.

brain stroke treatment in india

Some people who might get brain stroke in future may have slurred speech and lack of coordination, some might have numbness in one part of the body. Another bunch would be having vision problems. Haven’t you seen people with almost similar disorders? If so, it is high time you make sure that they consult a neurosurgeon at the earliest because all these symptoms are much in relation with brain stroke. There are many hospitals in and around Hyderabad to lend their hands for the treatment of stroke. Out of these, Star Hospital headed by Dr. Sai Sudarsan, Neurosurgeon in Hyderabad is considered the greatest and effective.

Do you know what a stroke is?

Most of you might be of the view that stroke is a terrific medical condition. Of course, it is. The blood supply to either a part of the brain is cut off in the patients affected by stroke. That is, it happens as a result of breaking down of the blood vessels in the brain. This would definitely result in prevention of blood and oxygen from reaching the tissues of the brain.

Every Disease happens because of a Strong Reason

These are a few causes of brain stroke
1. Obesity
2. Early family history of stroke
3. Boozing and consumption of drugs
4. Unhealthy lifestyle
5. Age issues
6. High cholesterol, diabetes, and blood pressure

Brain Stroke Symptoms

It is always helpful to know the symptoms before they turn worse.
 

1. Weakness in limbs and facial muscles
2.  Paralysis of half body
3. Fatigue and difficulty in balancing
4. Speech loss
5. Severe headache and inability to move the eyes rapidly
If you have got a couple of the given symptoms, never hesitate to walk to the nearby hospital.

How Is Diagnosis of Stroke done?

As soon as the doctor compares the medical condition of the patient with the symptoms and signs of brain stroke, he would ask him to carry out a few medical tests such as blood tests, MRI and CT Scan, Carotid Ultrasound, Electrocardiogram, Cerebral Angiogram and Echo Cardiogram.

Treatments Available

Depending on the type of the stroke the patient had, the doctor suggests different kinds of medication. They are Anticoagulants (to reduce the inability of the blood to clot), Tissue Plasminogen Activator (to break up a blood clot), Antiplatelet Drugs (to make blood platelets unable to stick together), Statins (to reduce the cholesterol levels) etc.

There are a few medical techniques as part of the treatment of strokes for the two types of strokes such as Ischemic Stroke and Hemorrhagic Stroke. A few of them include:

Ischemic Stroke:

Mechanical Thrombectomy:
A catheter is inserted into the large blood vessel inside the patient’s head. Then the clot is slowly pulled out of the vessel using a device.
Stent:
With the aid of a stent (a metal tube), the narrowed arteries are inflated.

Hemorrhagic Stroke:

Coiling:
A long tube to the blood vessel that has been weakened is inserted followed by installation of coil-like device into the same area. Thus the blood flow to the area is blocked and bleeding is reduced.
Clamping:
An aneurysm (a ballooned area in the artery) that might bleed anytime has to be prevented from bleeding. In order to do this, a clamp is placed at the roots of an aneurysm.
If all these techniques do not work well with you, the only way out is to go for a surgery as early as possible so that the blood clot and plaques be easily removed.

Prevention is better than Cure

Anybody can reduce the risk of this life-threatening diseases if they are willing to eat a healthy diet, refrain themselves from smoking and drinking and practice exercises on a regular basis.
Please bear in mind that only early diagnosis and better treatment for the person can help bring him back to normalcy. Anytime you find there is a huge possibility for brain stroke for you or your loved ones, pay a visit to Star Hospital. Dr. Sai Sudarsan is all set to welcome you here for the best Brain Stroke treatment in India.

Dr. Sai Sudarsan is the best orthopedic doctor solve you back and cervical problem. He provides evidence-based cost-effective quality treatment to the patients.  He is one of the best neurosurgeon available in Hyderabad.  He is known for treating thousand who were suffering from a backache and cervical problems.

Treatments 




Include Medications, hot and cold therapies, Cortisone injection and therapies like acupuncture and massage.


As the name suggests, it is minimally invasive and is to cure lumbar stenosis(spinal canal narrows and compresses the spinal cord nerves in the lower back).  This is a short outpatient procedure done using a small incision in the back without anesthesia with the help of an imaging machine and specialized tools.  The doctor will remove the excess ligament tissue and small pieces of bone through the incision. This will restore the space in the spinal canal and decreases the nerve compression.



This treatment is to remove the herniated disc from the spinal canal.  It is a minimally invasive method which makes use of the endoscope and small surgical tools.  Fragments of the spinal disc that causes pressure on the nerve are removed.


Ozone gas is directly injected into the herniated disc, the gas fills the disc and bubbles out through protrusion.  There will a chemical reaction between the gas and the nucleus of the disc.  Hence causes the shrinking of the herniated portion of the disc.  The pressure is relieved and pain disappear


In this procedure, the bones are not removed during the surgery, only reshaping or repositioning of the bones takes place.This surgical method relieves symptoms of spinal stenosis by removing the pressure from the spinal cord in the neck.
You feel free to contact Dr. Sai Sudarsan for any issues related to back problems.  This would definitely the right choice for you.

Dealing with Head Injuries...

Head injuries can be defined as any sort of injuries that occur to the skull, brain, scalp or tissues and blood vessels in the head. They can range from a mild bruise to a complicated brain injury. The treatment and other consequences of head injuries vary depending on its nature and severity.

Causes of head injuries


Head injuries can occur due to various reasons including trauma from accidents, due to powerful blows resulting from falls, physical assault or as a part of sports injuries. In babies, head injuries can occur due to excessive shaking.

Some of the common head injuries include concussions, hematoma, haemorrhage, edema, skull fractures (depressed, diastatic, basilar, and linear) and so on.

http://neurosurgerynow.com/head-injuries.html


Symptoms of head injury


Our head has more blood vessels than any other part of our body and hence injury results in bleeding either internally or externally. The symptoms of head injury may not be grave initially and may vary depending on the injury.

A minor head injury may be characterised by the following symptoms: -
  • A headache or light-headedness
  • Nausea
  • A spinning sensation and mild confusion
  • Ringing in the ears
A severe head injury is often accompanied by symptoms like loss of consciousness, vomiting and seizures, coordination or balance problems, abnormal eye movements, inability to focus, worsening headache, memory loss and mood changes.

Diagnosis and Treatments of head injury


Head injuries can be diagnosed with the help of physical examination, blood tests, CT scans, X-rays, MRI and EEG. These tests help the doctor identify the cause, extent and intensity of the injury. The treatment is decided based on many factors such as the age and medical condition of the patient along with the severity of the injury.

Severe head injuries might warrant surgery to correct and manage blood clots and repair skull fractures. They also help in preventing further brain tissue damages.

Dr. Sai Sudarsan is a pioneer in the field of minimally invasive neurosurgery in Hyderabad, with a world of experience in the field.

There is no need to be in Pain Again

Artificial disc replacement surgery is also known as spine arthroplasty. Currently, artificial disc replacement is available for the neck (cervical) and back (lumbar) spine. Artificial disc replacement is an alternative to the traditional spinal fusion. The degeneration and damage of the discs that cushion the bones of the spine can be increases by the genetics, age, and daily wear and tear of routine activities.  The doctors generally start with the nonsurgical (conservative) medical treatment to treat degenerative disc disease. But, when conservative therapy fails the doctors uses spinal fusion surgical treatment. This process permanently locks two or more spinal vertebrae composed so that they cannot move. But spinal fusion has some drawbacks, such as
  • Loss of flexibility and motion
  • Permanently altered motion features and biomechanics



Artificial disc replacement is better than spinal fusion as it offers a viable, reversible option to the fusion and avoids the accepted flaws of fusion. There is the possibility of reducing damage to adjacent joints and discs by inserting an artificial disc in comparison to performing spinal fusion. Artificial disc replacement permits 
  • Motion preservation
  • Normal distribution of stress along the spine
  • Restoration of pre-degenerative disc height



The technique to install an artificial disc is routine and safe. The material and design of disc is revolutionary and similar to the materials used in knee and hip replacement surgery. The material is designed in such a way that is not harmful or sensitive to the body and skin. Recovery is fast after the surgery and less painful.
Dr. Saisudarsan is one of the best neurosurgeons in Hyderabad. Dr. Saisudarsan is associated with Star hospital, Hyderabad and provides best treatment facilities for the artificial disc replacement Surgery In India

Get Effective Treatment For Back Pain

Disc Replacement surgery, also called disc arthroplasty or cervical disc replacement, is one of the latest treatment options for degenerative disc diseases, where the damaged discs are replaced by an artificial disc. Disc replacement surgery helps in restoring full motion capabilities and eliminating pain related to disc injuries or irregularities.

http://www.neurosurgerynow.com/disc-arthroplasty.html

Disc deformities cause excessive pressure on spinal cord and associated nerves which lead to severe pain in the lower back. This can be cured by replacing the concerned disc and restoring the spine structure. Disc arthroplasty helps in re-establishing the normal disc functions.

http://www.neurosurgerynow.com/disc-arthroplasty.htmlTypes of Disc Replacement Surgery

Disc replacement surgery can be distinguished to different types depending on the extent of replacement carried out. The surgical procedure where the whole disc structure is replaced is called total disc replacement. Here the whole or most of the disc tissues are replaced by an artificial prosthesis.


Disc nucleus replacement involves the replacement of the centre of the disc, also called disc nucleus.

Procedure of Disc Replacement Surgery

The procedure of disc arthroplasty is conducted under general anaesthesia. The deformed disc is removed through an incision made on the neck. The artificial disc is implanted after decompressing the associated nerves. The procedure is comparatively simpler and less painful than other spinal surgeries.

Benefits of Disc Replacement Surgery

The major benefits of the surgery are as follows: -
  • Restores motion and provides relief from pain
  • Does not cause harm to adjoining joints or discs
  • Reduces cervical collar immobilisation
  • Does not require bone grafting
  • Can prevent the accelerated degeneration in the discs
  • Reduces oesophagus irritation and swallowing difficulties
The procedure is not fit for those suffering from conditions like osteoporosis, spinal infections or tumour, spondylolisthesis and so on. It is also not performed in case of pregnancy or on children.

Dr. Sai Sudarsan is a leading and well experienced Endovascular and Micro neurosurgeon in Hyderabad. He is one of the best neurosurgeons in conducting disc replacement surgery in the country.

Get Rid Of Neck Pain...

The neck or cervical spine, which  co ordinates network of nerves, bones joints and muscles from the brain and the spinal cord. The neck has the important role providing support, strength, stability and mobility for the head and it is particularly vulnerable to injury.



Neck injury happens when the muscles and ligaments of the neck are forced to move outside of normal range. Sometimes, sudden jerking of the head, car accidents, sudden falls, sports injury, poor posture, repetitive motions, holding head in unusual position causes neck pain or injury.

Common Causes Neck Pain 

  • Cervical degenerative disc disease
  • Cervical herniated disc
  • Cervical spinal stenosis with myelopathy
  • Cervical foraminal stenosis


Cervical degenerative disc disease causes when the discs gradually lose hydration and the ability to cushion the spine's vertebrae. It can lead to painful irritation of cervical nerve.

Cervical herniated disc is a condition which the cervical disc gets herniated due to the leakage of the jelly like inner layer called nucleus pulpous through a tear in the disc's protective outer layer. This may happen because of an injury or aging.

Cervical spinal stenosis and myelopathy is a condition which causes the narrowing of the spinal canal due to the degeneration of the spine. When the spinal canal narrows and compress the spinal cord ( a large bundle of nerves that runs inside the spinal canal) leads to myelopathy. The symptoms of myelopathy is weakness of arms, hands, legs or feet.

Cervical for aminal stenosis occurs when the foramina (the holes in the vertebral construct) become narrowed, which can cause irritation for the nerve root that runs through it.

Dr Saisudarshan is an experienced and well trained senior consultant in  Micro neurosurgery and Endovascular Neurosurgery based in Star Hospital, Hyderabad. The hospital offers the best  and advanced surgical treatments for all kind of neck problems in Hyderabad at affordable cost.

No More Suffering due to Back Pain

Numbness in the lower back and acute pain in the same area when trying to walk or stand upright are common issues reported by most people. These symptoms may point the finger towards Lumbar Spinal Stenosis.

http://www.neurosurgerynow.com/minimally-invasive-lumbar-discectomy-mild-for-back-pain.html

Minimally Invasive Lumbar Discectomy (MILD) is a method used to treat Lumbar Spinal Stenosis.  Lumbar Spinal Stenosis is a condition in which the spinal canal narrows and compresses the spinal cord nerves within. This creates acute pain and one might find numbness on the lower back when standing upright or walking. Thickening of ligament tissues, bulging of vertebral discs or growth of an extra bone may be the reasons. Aging is, however, the most commonly found reason for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis.
This is a surgical procedure done with a small incision at the lower back but seldom is anesthesia used. Implants or stitches are also not required for the purpose. The cause for the pain like excess ligament tissue, extra bone, bulging that creates problems with discs are all incised out from the body and it creates instant relief to the patient. The doctor might suggest physical rest for the patient to keep him away from strenuous physical activities.
Though MILD procedure reports very high rate of success, it should be done with utmost care and medical expertise. Dr. Sai Sudarsan is a well trained and an experienced micro and Endo vascular neurosurgeon have successfully carried out many such surgeries with the help of a dedicated team.
