Pain Management and Palliative Care

Leading Neurologist

Palliative care is a type of care that focuses on providing physical, emotional, and spiritual support to terminally ill patients and their families. Neurological and neurosurgical diseases are some of the most common conditions that palliative care services see, and they’re often the leading cause of death for people with non-malignant diseases.

Why you need to see them?

Any adult or child can get it if they have a serious or ongoing condition, like:

  • Cancer
  • Heart failure
  • Kidney or liver failure
  • ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease)
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Stroke
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Dementia

What they do?

Your team of Hospice care workers may include doctors, nurses, social workers, dietitians, volunteers, and even spiritual advisers. Its focus is not to treat or cure your disease, but to ease your symptoms and any side effects of treatment. These include:

Shortness of breath
Anxiety or depression
Sleep problems
Lack of appetite

Your palliative care team will want to know what you need and want out of your care. Perhaps you’d like to feel well enough to be discharged from the hospital or to move to the next stage of your treatment. Or, maybe you’d like to get stronger so you can see your daughter play baseball or attend your son’s wedding. Regardless of what your goals are, your team can help you make progress towards them.

The team can answer questions about treatment options, help you make informed decisions, and keep your regular doctors updated on your wishes. This way, you’ll have more control over your overall care.

Physician consultation is a good opportunity and you should be prepared for it.

  • Carry all necessary medical records for the discussion. It helps in better understanding your heart condition and avoids repetition of diagnostic tests.
  • Make sure you discuss your past medical history, surgical history, family history, and medications that you are taking.
  • Discuss about your lifestyle habits, dietary habits and also about your profession. Your lifestyle and nature of job may be associated with the risk for cardiac diseases.
