Treating doctor present at the OPD, Dr. Amit Srivastava, Director, Neuro and Spine Surgery Aakash Healthcare Super Speciality Hospital, Dwarka, said, “people generally overlook symptoms of neuro problems, such as continuous episodes of headache, significant changes in behaviour, forgetfulness etc. This can lead to major health issues in the long term.”
A study showed that in Srinagar region alone, around 66% of people were found to be suffering from headache, whereas more than 15.5% people have cerebrovascular disorders. Such high prevalence of neurological problems requires awareness to identify their symptoms and seek medical attention on priority.

“This mutual initiative of Aakash Healthcare Dwarka and Ramzaan Hospital, Srinagar would prove highly beneficial in generating awareness and providing adequate treatment to the patients of Srinagar and nearby regions,” Srivastava said.
