Pediatric Neurologist Treating The Acquired Epilepsy Due To Brain Injury

Pediatric Acute Brain Injury

It is natural for the parents to be in a state of shock after their child experiences an acute brain injury. It is not something that people are remotely close to preparing for. These series of events can also include hypoxic-ischemic brain injury after a cardiac arrest, traumatic brain injury, perinatal complications, brain infections, or strokes.

This is why if you want to foster and protect your child from any severe issue, you should immediately visit a Pediatric Neurologist in Punjab and treat the cognition without any delay.

 Risk Of Seizures

After recovering from this phase, several children with such injuries encounter themselves with a diagnosis that they might have never had before: epilepsy. Epilepsy is basically a condition in which it projects having a risk of seizures that are unprovoked. In short, it means that they are technically no longer at the means of being critically ill, but after their healing process, they have somehow developed a newfound risk of seizures that occurs at any time anywhere while living their daily life.

Having seizures and the fear of experiencing them are both scary encounters that leave the family with an overwhelming and concerning environment. This leaves them with one thought only how ill they manage to help their children with this new set of diagnoses.

In such a situation, we recommend you seek help from a Neurologist in Ludhiana to control the after-effects of such brain injury.

 Professional Preventing Seizures

The main focus of the doctor in an epilepsy program is to enhance the quality of life of those children who are suffering from epilepsy, as seizures can have a heavy impact on the development of the children and their ability to live an active lifestyle on a daily basis. This is the reason treating such conditions became paramount.

Most of the time, the technique to treat the seizures is to prescribe the patient antiseizure medications. Based on the patient’s experience with the particular type of seizures, the doctors tailor the medicines. Apart from that, the doctor also keeps in mind the potential side effects of the medication and how it can impact the children’s life.

There are also some cases wherein the children who have acquired epilepsy from brain injuries and have seizures remain immune to the treatment. In such a situation, the doctor can imply additional strategies such as neuromodulation or ketogenic diet therapy. When the seizures come from a particular location, then the doctor in such a time cures the acquired epilepsy via respective epilepsy surgery.

 Emerging Research And The Future Of Acquired Epilepsy

As we have established that neuromodulating and medication strategies such as vagal nerve stimulation or a ketogenic diet might help reduce or prevent seizures. Also, keep in mind that they do not cure a patient who is suffering from acquired epilepsy. This is the only reason there is an absolute need for diseases-modifying remedies to help cure patients with epilepsy.

Pediatric neurosurgery in Punjab

Is your child diagnosed with Hydrocephalus? Now you have to search for the Neurologist in Ludhiana who gives the utmost effective and advanced pediatric neuro care. Indeed! Seeking treatment on time is essential to improve the well-being of your child. At Neuro Life Brain and Spine Centre, under the expertise of Dr. Amit Mittal, you can get inventive and latest treatments for your child’s brain and spine health.

Little breakdown on Hydrocephalus – Common Brain Problem

Hydrocephalus is a common brain condition that needs surgical intervention on time and under the expertise of an experienced Pediatric Neurosurgeon in Ludhiana.

The brain condition affects your child’s brain functionality. The problem leads to:

  • Fluid build-up
  • Puts excess pressure on the brain

As the child is small and the brain is still developing, it’s often difficult to diagnose this brain condition. The problem is even more troublesome when pressure gets put on the brain. Considering the age factor, it’s essential to seek immediate pediatric neuro care in Ludhiana to improve your child’s well-being.

You must always take the best health measures for the child’s brain and spine health, as it’s interlinked. Our best spine doctor in Ludhiana is here to make a difference in your child’s health.

Treatment options for Pediatric Neurosurgery for Hydrocephalus

Depending on your child’s condition and what suits them best, the neurosurgeon will give the necessary treatment plan. The two most effective pediatric neurosurgical options are:

Pediatric neurosurgery 1: Endoscopically

The endoscope is a safe and minimally invasive approach available at present. If your child’s Hydrocephalus condition is not severe or still at the initial stage, endoscopy is an excellent approach.

During surgery, the surgeon will create a small incision at the base of the brain. The further approach allows limiting the fluid build-up in the brain to release the tension.

Pediatric neurosurgery 2: Shunt placement

Another safe and inventive approach is shunt placement. If your child’s condition is severe and requires immediate attention, shunt placement is suggested.

During the surgery, neurosurgeons insert a small tube that allows cerebrospinal fluid to not go to the brain and go to other body parts. The procedure allows us to take the pressure right away.

Please discuss if surgery is required in future or not. If yes, then how aggressive the surgical approach is? Knowing everything beforehand is essential to getting your child the best possible care.

Hydrocephalus brain condition can lead to anxiety

A child living with Hydrocephalus has their life go upside down as the child will have anxiety problems. However, that does not mean your child cannot live a healthy and normal life. As a parent, you have to be by their side.

Most importantly, give them support, comfort, and care as they begin their journey of hydrocephalus treatment.
