Bollywood's Baba Sanjay Dutt and Dada Jackie Shroff joined hands with India's neurological fraternity to spread the message and awareness about stroke
Breach Candy Hospital's Senior Consultant Neurosurgeon and Interventional Neurosurgeon Dr Anil P. Karapurkar said that like a healthy heart, a healthy brain is important, for which precautions need to be taken
Anil P Karapurkar warned, "In case of a heart attack, it is either you are gone or you recover. In case of a brain stroke, you may be gone, you may recover and come to normal, or you become dependent for life."
Jackie Shroff said that if it's possible, there should be a separate corridor for movement of patients which others can also use for emergency purposes
The neurological fraternity is now contemplating launching a massive outreach programme with family doctors and general practitioners to create more awareness about how to deal with brain stroke emergencies.
Some of the other prominent speakers included medicos P. S. Ramani, Dileep R. Yavagal, Orlando Diaz, Abhidha Shah, Sukhdeep Khawar, Philippe Mercier and Nitin N. Dange.
