NeuroGen Brain and Spine Institute is an organization and a concept to bring to individuals with incurable neurological disorders, a hope for a better future, a life of independence through the combination of the revolutionizing regenerative medicine, holistic comprehensive neurorehabilitation and medical intervention.
NeuroGen’s uniqueness is its ability to combine seamlessly the newest developments (Stem cells) with conventional, tried and tested rehabilitation techniques. The amalgamation of the new and the old in the form of synergistic team work, all under one roof, gives patients a hope which otherwise is a hopeless condition, a potential for a good quality of life.
NeuroGen Brain and Spine Institute was set up with a vision to aid patients suffering from various incurable neurological disorders like Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy, Intellectual Disability, Spinal Cord Injury, Brain Stroke, etc. Our multi-disciplinary approach attempts not only to treat these conditions, but also to restore health and vitality.
Since, its inception in 2008, NeuroGen has successfully treated over 6500 patients from over 65 countries. We regularly monitor and follow up with all our patients. None of our patients have shown any major side effects. We have been accredited by ISO 9001-2008 and a GLP (Good laboratory practice) and GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) certified stem cell laboratory. NeuroGen has achieved various awards at various National and International Forums. We have received "The Best Stem Cell Therapy centre in India" by National Healthcare Excellence award in 2016 at New Delhi, India,"Emerging Stem Cell & Neurology Centre of the year (India)" by Brands Academy Award in December 2016 at New Delhi, India, "Best Super Speciality Hospital" by International Excellence Awards in January 2017 at New delhi, "Quality Health Services in Neuro Sciences" by International Excellence Awards, Goa in March 2017."The Rose of Paracelsus Award, by EMA and Socrates Nomination Committee (Oxford UK)" at Cannes, France in October 2016, "Best Hospital" by Europe Business Assembly (EBA) at Dubai in January 2017.
Our approach consists of using a combination of:
- Stem Cell Therapy
- Other Medical and Surgical Treatments
We utilize adult stem cells derived from the patient’s own bone marrow, as these are the safest and most feasible type of cells. The use of these cells does not involve any ethical or moral issues. Since every patient is different, our treatment procedure is customized according to the patient’s condition and requirement.
- Cerebral Palsy
- Intellectual Disability
- Muscular Dystrophy
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Head Injury
- Cerebellar ataxia
- Injuries of the brain and spine due to infections
- Genetic conditions such as Down’s Syndrome.
- Neurodegenerative disorders.
- Motor Neuron Disease
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Other neuromuscular disorders such as Spinal muscular atrophy, Hereditary sensory motor neuropathy etc.
Our team is headed by Dr. Alok Sharma and the panel includes:
- A medical team (neurosurgeon, neurophysician, pediatrician, psychiatrist, orthopedic surgeon, general physician ,urologist, andrologist, general surgeon & ophthalmologist)
- A basic science team (Neuropathologist, Regenerative medicine scientist & Biotechnologist)
- A rehabilitation team (physiotherapist, occupational therapist, clinical psychologist, speech therapist, aquatic therapist and yoga therapist)
At NeuroGen, along with treatment there is a strong emphasis on academic work and clinical research. A detailed analysis of the clinical data is carried out on a regular basis and this is published in various scientific journals. Currently, 86 scientific papers have been published by our team in various international and national peer reviewed medical journals. We also have 7 chapters in International textbooks and our team has also published over 15 books.
We are associated with numerous support groups and NGOs such as StemCare Foundation, Autism Connect, Association for Muscular Dystrophy (AMD), Asha Ek Hope- An MND Foundation to help rehabilitate affected families.
As an institute, we understand that coping with a neurological disability is as traumatic to the patient as it is to his/her family. Hence, we aim to extend our support in every possible way, not just before or during the treatment, but even after.
We also conduct various awareness programs for the medical fraternity and for patients and their caretakers. Conducting conferences, lectures, workshops, publishing guidebooks and making documentary movies is a part of this program.
The primary aim is to facilitate an overall well-being for patients suffering from incurable neurological disorders through NRRT. In addition to the above, providing support to stem cell research & regenerative medicine and increasing awareness about its applications are supplementary objectives.
To alleviate suffering & improve the quality of life of patients with incurable/ intractable diseases & injury of the nervous system, by restoring functional abilities to maximum possible extending professional, holistic & caring manner and to conduct basic & clinical research by constant work on innovation & development so that the best therapeutic strategies can be evolved.
