NeuroGen Brain & Spine Institute commenced on 17th December 2008 in the basement of Surana Sethia Hospital, Chembur. We shifted to Seawoods in our own established facility on 31st March 2014. From treating around 150 patients in the initial year we have steadily reached a point to where we treat approximately 250 patients in a month. We have not only expanded from a small facility to an 11 storey building, in a beautiful, homely, locality, but also grown in terms of manpower and resources.
We began as a team of 6 professionals in the year 2008 but have now expanded to a larger family consisting of almost 200 inhouse and outsourced employees. The entire set up of the hospital has been designed to be patient centric.

They ensure that every patient and/or caretaker who is admitted or scheduled to be admitted in the hospital, is experienced and guided appropriately about the treatment and of any precautions that need to be considered.
