It generally develops in children due to damage in the brain at its development stage, most probably before birth. Our specialist helps these patients by giving them proper medication, therapies and by suggesting surgical treatment if needed.
- Inherited metabolic disorders, Inborn errors of metabolism
Inborn errors of metabolism are rare and mostly inherited disorders in which the child’s body is incapable of converting food into energy. This disorder mainly develops from protein deficiency, especially those that help break down the parts of the food into energy. When the food present in the body is not broken down properly, it starts building up, creating a new problem. So the condition needs to be taken care of immediately before it’s too late.

- Vascular disorders, including childhood strokes
Our highly skilled doctors also treat conditions like paediatric stroke. It is a rare condition in children which usually arises when the blood vessel in the brain suffers any injury. As a result, brain tissue loses blood supply and suffers injury too. Just like adults, stroke in children can be life-threatening thus requires immediate attention.
- Infections of Brain & Spinal Cord including Meningitis, Encephalitis and Brain & Spinal Cord Abscess
A child develops an infection in his/her brain due to the action of bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites or protozoa. It also has some effects on other parts of the central nervous system, including the spinal cord.
