Cerebral stroke or 'Brain Attack' is the leading cause of disability and probably the third leading cause of death in India. At Narayana Health, we use a new technique known as a temporary endovascular bypass. There are interventional neurological procedures, which are used for the treatment of acute stroke or epilepsy and are practised abroad very routinely. We hope to increase awareness of stroke and its prevention so that the focus is on prevention rather than cure.
The network of hospitals under Narayana Health offers comprehensive packages for epileptic care services, cerebral stroke programmes including rehabilitation and evaluation of complex neuromuscular disorders for which a recommended course of treatment is followed.

Today's option to treat diseases of the blood vessels of brain and spinal cord without surgery, Interventional neurology is a speciality which uses minimally invasive and image based technologies procedures for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of blood vessels of brain and spinal cord (neurovascular diseases). These diseases include paralytic strokes, brain aneurysms and arterio venous malformations (AVM’s) of blood supplying the brain and spinal cords using coiling, stenting and embolization. Stroke “Brain attack “, is the rapidly developing loss of brain functions due to the disturbance in the blood supply to the brain. Stroke is the first leading cause of disability and the third leading cause of death in India. The prevalence rate of stroke is 1.54 per thousand. India will face an enormous socio-economic burden to meet the costs of rehabilitation of "Stroke victims" because the population is now surviving through the peak years of occurrence of stroke. Stroke is treatable and preventable disease.
Recognizing the need to rehabilitate patients with neurological/spinal injuries or disorders into mainstream life. At Narayana Health our units have a specially designated cell to take care of those who need counselling, care and routine check-up. The objective of this department is to improve a patient's quality of life in case of traumatic case history or simply provide hand-holding and offer support services till the individual is able to manage his life smoothly. The path to recovery is then a quick process.
