Best pediatric neurologist in Bangalore

Hi,

My 4 year old son (Karthilk) is mentally retarded and autistic. He was born normal and when he was 11 months old , we noticed that he could not able to sit independently. Then we took him to Suresh Rao Aroor , he took EEG and BAER test and told that his EEG was not normal. He proposed NORMABRAIN and MECONERV. We continued this medicine for one year. Then we moved to Sweden and we are back to india now.

Now I want to continue his treatment in Bangalore, can any one suggest the dest pediatric neurologist in Bangalore other than suresh rao aroor.

I'm sorry to read this about your son.  I think that the best way to find a good person to help your son is to ask around, make friends with other people who have children that need similar help.  Maybe do some research online, and keep looking around.  Good luck and keep us updated.

There is no better hospital for Neuorological problem than NIMHANS, not only in Bangalore but in India. The doctors are kind, listening and knowlegable. They will go to the root of the problem and rectify it.
They treat everyone rich or poor alike and gives sufficient time to each patient. You need to have patience and sometimes may have to wait whole day, since there are large number of patients from all over India (and outside India also).
It is a pity if you are in Bangalore and still not consulting the best neurological hospital in India.

Pl consult Dr Satish Chandra in NIMHANS. Just check his profile and you will know about him. There is no better neuorologist in Bangalore than him.
I had also suffered initially for my son's problem and this is based on my personal experience.

Hi, My daughter is 11months now. she has myoclonic jerks (started when she was 8months). I got scared as none in the family has it.

We are consulting Dr Nalini Shakaran. And we are results are visible. We have done EEG, Blood Test, MRI & CT scan.. All came normal.

We hare giving sodium valproate syrup as per doctor advice. She is good. Now, jerks are reduced but not completely stopped. As per doctor, we need to continue medicine till 3years.

Kindly let me know, if any other doctor we need to consult.

Hi Harsha,

Not sure if your daughter gets seizure during fever only.

My son also  gets seizure whenever he has High fever, this problem started when he was 18 months.
Doctors prescribed Frisium 5 mg whenever he gets fever 12 th Hourly whenever we notice fever.
It dint work well in his case and most of the time he got seizures after giving Frisium also. The number of episode is 5 to 6
We were told that febrile seizures should stop after the age of 5 .He is 4 yrs. now but Frisium is failed to prevent the seizures.
We have consulted with Dr. Arvind shenoi Pediatrician and Dr. Bidisha Banerjee Consultant Pediatric Neurologist at Manipal Hospital, Bangalore.

He is on Valpret 200 Oral medicine twice in a day till 365 days. Please let me know if someone also using the same medication.
The Liver function test is done and all reports are normal. My son is growing well, and has no issue. However doctor has said that,
There is a procedure to stop this medicine after a year and it should be under the Neurologist supervision only.
