Misdiagnosis, underdiagnosis, and in some cases no diagnosis at all, still remain a big problem in the Indian healthcare system today. Especially in tier II, III, and subsequent towns and villages, it is often seen that diseases and ailments are not diagnosed properly.

This problem is even more peculiar in certain neurological indications like Autism, ADHD, and Dyslexia where they are more routinely seen as behavioral issues in a child rather than a properly diagnosed ailment. There are several ways in which these diseases can be managed if they are diagnosed properly and in time. A child has no reason to be humiliated every time by peers or parents if he is not able to understand studies or lacks social behavior. The child needs to be examined and diagnosed correctly for the disorder and the doctors should keep an open mind about the variety of treatment options available including new age treatment methods like Stem Cell treatments.

I know for a fact that there are a large number of children suffering from these kinds of disorders. If you add ailments like Cerebral Palsy to the mix, the numbers swell even higher. While all of these diseases are incurable, they can be managed to an extent with the help of Stem Cell Treatments. Like any therapy, there are limits to this therapy as well, but to me, it is the best hope right now for patients suffering from these kinds of neurological disorders for whom conventional medicine really has no cure of hope.
