Pune doctors offer support to MS patients





















Representative Image.

PUNE: Ruby Hall Clinic in association with the Multiple Sclerosis Society of India (MSSI) and young students from Sancheti Healthcare Academy organised a workshop recently. The objective was to change the way the world defines and views MS by making profound, positive differences in people's lives.

The camp registered the presence of a number of doctors including eye specialist Devendra Venketramani, ENT specialist Murarji Ghadge, gynaecologist Sunita Tandulwadkar, physiotherapist Smita Ingle, physician Abhijit Lodha, psychiatrist Pankaj Borade, urologist Deepen Patel, speech therapist Serene Malhara Shah, neuro-physiotherapists Gajanan Bhalerao and Dinesh Chavan led by neurologist Rajas Deshpande and Manisha Sanghavi, director, Sancheti Healthcare Academy.

The doctors presided over the educational session, and felicitated patients with MS who have shown tremendous courage in fighting the disease. Himani Tapasvi distributed the prizes.

Neurologist Rajas Deshpande, director (neurology) Ruby Hall Clinic said, "Since the last five years, we have been conducting this camp and have seen a number of relationships deteriorate over time. It is with the aim of preserving these relationships that we placed special emphasis on it this year. A number of specialist doctors provided a plethora of services right from speech therapy to relationship counselling. Additionally, free medicines were provided along with MRI scans at a nominal cost."

"What's unique about this initiative is that we see a young group of students aged 20-22 years voluntarily take up the opportunity to learn and the possibility to care for patients, "he said while lauding the efforts of the students.

Bomi Bhote, CEO, Ruby Hall Clinic said, "Advances in medications have improved the course of this disease for many, but identifying the right treatment for the right patient at the right time still remains a challenge."

An unpredictable disease of the central nervous system, MS can range from relatively benign to somewhat disabling to devastating, as communication between the brain and other parts of the body is disrupted.
