    We had been looking for a specialist in parkinsons for a while now, for my father and when we found Dr. Siddharth Kharka's details on Google, we were … More partly relieved. Partly because, we were all very anxious not knowing how would our visit turn out. I appreciate Dr. Kharkar and his team. He was very clear in his explanations, his knowledge about parkinsons. He took the time to answer the questions we had, went over the diagnosis and started necessary treatment immediately. The only drawback we experienced was the waiting time. Overall, we left the clinic satisfied, knowing much more than when we walked in. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a specialist.

Current activities:

Currently, Dr. Siddharth Kharkar is a Epilepsy specialist (Seizure specialist) in Mumbai, India. He also practices as a Parkinson’s specialist in Mumbai, India.
Dr. Siddharth Kharkar’s long-term aim is to provide the absolute best epilepsy treatment in Mumbai and India and the absolute best Parkinson’s treatment in Mumbai and India. His goal is total thoroughness in all cases. For example, in addition to the overall treatment a thorough search for the cause of epilepsy or the cause of Parkinson’s disease is done in all his clinics.

He is also amongst the top neurologists in Vasai-Virar and the best neurologists in the Thane, where he also provides his services.

He is also one of the current International coordinators of the Non-Motor Parkinson’s disease study Group (International Parkinson’s and Movement Disorder Society).

Epilepsy treatment in Mumbai, India:

Strange as it may seem, not all patients need the “best” epilepsy treatment. In many cases, epilepsy is well controlled with medications and patients do not have seizures.

There are many medications for seizures. Even if one medication for epilepsy does not stop seizures, it is completely possible that another, properly chosen medication will stop seizures. Some patients do need 2-3 medications to stop seizures completely.

However, in about 30% of cases, seizures do not stop with medications alone. In these cases, it is very important to monitor the patient to find out the exact cause of epilepsy. It is also important to select medications appropriately, so that the treatment of epilepsy can be optimized.

If the patient really has epilepsy that is not controlled medications, then epilepsy surgery may help in stopping seizures. Frequently, seizures start from only one small part of the brain, and the rest of the brain is normal. In these cases, the small part of the brain is removed. This is called “Resective Epilespy surgery”. This is the best kind of epilepsy surgery. It can completely stop seizures in about 70% of patients. The exact possibility of freedom from seizures depends on the kind of seizures, the state of the underlying brain and other factors.

In other cases, more than one place in the brain may be producing seizures. Even in these cases, treatment with neuromodulation devices such as the Vagus Nerve Stimulator (VNS) and Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) can help to reduce the number of seizures that the patient is getting.

The best treatment of Epilepsy therefore needs patience, a great amount of skill and trust between the patient and the doctor.

Epilepsy surgery in Mumbai and India is done in a select few institutions. Dr. Siddharth Kharkar provides epilepsy treatment at all his clinics in Mumbai, Vasai-Virar and Thane. He provides epilepsy surgery in Mumbai through Nanavati Hospital.

Parkinson’s treatment in Mumbai, India:

The treatment of Parkinson’s begins with confirming the diagnosis, and finding out the cause of Parkinson’s disease. In many cases, no cause can be found. But in some cases, a cause can be found – such as a bad medication that the patient is taking. In these cases, treatment of the cause of Parkinson’s is very important because that can result in dramatic improvement in symptoms and a life-long cure of Parkinsonism.

There are many medications for Parkinson’s disease. In contrast to epilepsy, the medications for Parkinson’s disease are complementary, rather than alternative choices. These medications for Parkinson’s need to be combined appropriately for a good response. For example, if levodopa is helping a patient move but is occasionally causing too much movement – then adding a medication called Amantadine will help levodopa to work better.

The best treatment for Parkinson’s disease includes not only treatment of the motor symptoms, but also of the non-motor symptoms such as constipation, sleep problems and depression. These non-motor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease can make the patient’s quality of life much worse. The good news is that all of these can be treated. All of these need to be properly treated for good outcomes and patient satisfaction.

In a few cases, medications do not relieve symptoms of Parkinson’s disease adequately. These patients may benefit from a treatment called Deep Brain Stimulation or DBS for short. DBS is a small device implanted into the brain, which helps the brain in passing movement signals to the muscles.

Dr. Siddharth Kharkar offers Parkinsons’ treatment in Mumbai at all his clinics in Mumbai, Vasai-Virar and Thane. He also provides Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) for Parkinson’s disease in Mumbai through Nanvati Hospital.
