Most Parkinson's disease treatments aim to restore the proper balance of the neurotransmitters acetylcholine and dopamine. This is usually done with medication, but some patients are candidates for implantation of a deep brain stimulator. Parkinson’s develops gradually, and generally starts with tremors in hands and legs. After that, in the early stages of this disorder the face of the person starts showing little or no emotion.
Parkinson’s is the progressive disorder of the nervous system which affects the movement of the body. The movement of the body gets affected due to problem in an important nerve cell of the brain, which makes a very important chemical in the brain called dopamine. Its function is to send signals to the part of brain which control the movements.Book an Appointment
Alzheimer’s is a degenerative, progressive disorder that attacks the brain’s neurons. As a result these neurons or brain cells break connection with the other nerve cells present and ultimately die. Right now, there is no cure for Alzheimer's disease. Once a person starts showing signs – memory loss and problems with learning, judgment, communication, and daily life -- there aren’t any treatments that can stop or reverse them.
But there are medicines that can ease some of the symptoms in some people. They can slow down how quickly the disease gets worse, and help the brain work better for longer. It’s important to talk to your doctor about which option may work best for you. This is the most common form of Dementia, resulting in loss of memory, thinking and language skills.Book an Appointment

Delirium is a clinical syndrome, where the thinking of a person becomes slow and muddled with a lot of complexities. The state of mind of a person is extremely disturbed as a result he/she becomes very hyper and restless and encounters severe hallucinations. The person suffering from Delirium becomes inaccessible to normal contact and social interactions. His/her behaviour becomes disorganised and this person is not able to pay attention to anything.
The first goal of treatment for delirium is to address any underlying causes or triggers — for example, by stopping use of a particular medication, addressing metabolic imbalances or treating an infection. Treatment then focuses on creating the best environment for healing the body and calming the brain.Book an Appointment
