Sakra Neuromuscular Clinic

Best Neuro Surgeons in Bangalore

1. What the clinic is all about?

This is the first of its kind in a private hospital setup which provides comprehensive care from diagnosis to management of all types of neuromuscular diseases. There are only three to four such comprehensive clinics in the entire country. The idea is to promote our hospital as a nodal quaternary referral center in the field of neuromuscular diseases.

2. What is Neuromuscular disease (in layman’s terms)?

Neuromuscular diseases is a broad sub specialty in Neurology that deals with all the diseases affecting your nerves and muscles. The commonest symptoms which indicate that your nerves/ muscles are affected include Tingling & Burning sensation, Numbness, pain / cramps/ stiffness in muscles, excessive tiredness, weakness or wasting of the muscles

3. Why is this specialty so rare, especially in a metro city like Bangalore?

There is a stigma among the patients and sometimes even among the physicians that neuromuscular diseases are untreatable which is entirely a wrong understanding. There are numerous neuromuscular diseases which can be given exclusive management and we have made patients who were wheel chair bound to even run.

4. What services does the clinic offer?

The clinic offers patient evaluation by two experienced neuromuscular specialists. Advanced electrophysiology studies like NCS, EMG, RNS, EPs are available. We also provide latest treatments with dedicated physiotherapy and rehabilitation. Genetic testing with genetic counselling also forms an integral part of the clinic

Neuromuscular diseases can co-exist with other lifestyle diseases. We don't let them go unnoticed.
