The Brain is one of the most principal organs of the body. It is responsible for all the actions and thoughts taking place in our body. Together, the brain and the spinal cord make up the Central Nervous System, or CNS.
Weighing close to 3 pounds in the average adult, it is a complex organ made up of over 100 billion nerves that communicate in trillions of connections, called synapses. It is divided into three parts – the cerebrum, the cerebellum, and the brain stem.
The cerebrum is further divided into the left and the right hemispheres. Each of the cerebral hemispheres comprises of 4 lobes – frontal, temporal, parietal and occipital.
The brain is responsible for all actions, thoughts, reactions of our body. It receives information through the five senses - sight, smell, touch, taste, hearing. It also receives inputs including touch, vibration, pain and temperature from the rest of the body. It interprets and assembles these messages in a way that is understandable, and stores the information in the memory.
The Brain is the body’s central organ. Like is the case with all other organs, even the brain may sometimes get damaged. Such damage affects the necessary functions that the brain controls, and also results in Brain Diseases. Brain Diseases occur in different forms, such as Infections, trauma, stroke, seizures, tumors, etc.
Brain diseases often go undiagnosed till they have developed to later stages, and this puts the body and life of individuals at immense risk. To avoid the risk, being mindful of the symptoms is necessary. Some of them are –
To begin the diagnosis, the first factor is the history and physical exam, with emphasis on the neurological exam. It includes monitoring the motor, sensory, reflex and thinking capabilities. The results of this exam determines whether further tests are required.
In addition to highly skilled medical experts, we are equipped with state of the art infrastructure and top technology - including a facility to perform 3D Brain Angiography procedure, which is unique to the state. For us, patient care is of utmost priority.
