Smile Foundation:

Smile Foundation is a national development organisation directly benefitting over 400,000 children and their families every year, through more than 200 live welfare projects on education, healthcare, livelihood and women empowerment, in over 950 remote villages and slums across 25 states of India.

Education is both the means as well as the end to a better life: the means because it empowers an individual to earn his/her livelihood and the end because it increases one's awareness on a range of issues – from healthcare to appropriate social behaviour to understanding one's rights – and in the process help him/her evolve as a better citizen. Doubtless, education is the most powerful catalyst for social transformation. But child education cannot be done in isolation. A child will go to school only if the family, particularly the mother, is assured of healthcare and empowered. Moreover, when an elder sibling is relevantly skilled to be employable and begins earning, the journey of empowerment continues beyond the present generation.

Realizing this, Smile Foundation, beginning in the corridors of education, adopted a lifecycle approach of development, focusing its interventions on children, their families and the larger community.

Smile Foundation believes that unless members of the civil society are involved proactively in the process of development, sustainable change will not happen. Following this model of Civic Driven Change, Smile Foundation sensitizes and engages the civil society, making it an active partner in all its welfare initiatives.

Indian musician plays guitar during brain surgery

Posted by: at 7/20/2017 06:40:00 am
BHAGWAN MAHAVEER JAIN HOSPITAL

The first ever Successful Live Brain Circuit Surgery for Guitarist or Musicians Dystonia conducted in India

A wild goose chase for his passion led 37 Year Old Abhishek Prasad, a native of Bihar living in Bangalore to brave a rare nervous issue called GUITARIST OR MUSICIANS DYSTONIA
Abhishek developed this passion for guitar in 2012. He was working then and over a period of time, he was training to be a professional guitarist and decided to quit his job to pursue his passion. As he quotes, Bad luck struck and problem developed in his left hand fingers because of which he found it difficult to move the little finger on the left and gradually, as the issue grew, he had to abandon the use of Guitar because of this disability. He initially ignored it thinking it was due to his extensive practice but later started facing serious issues in the 3/4/5th fingers also due to which he lost the ability to play the guitar.

He tried reaching every specialist across the city to get a solution for his problem. He suffered for 20 months with this problem without any job and unable to continue his passion until the day he was referred to Dr. Sharan Srinivasan, Stereotactic & Functional Neurosurgeon & HOD of Neuroscience, Bhagawan Mahaveer Jain Hospital.

Abhishek was first evaluated by Dr. Sanjiv C.C, a neurologist specialised in Movement Disorders at Bhagwan Mahaveer Jain Hospital, who first confirmed the diagnosis and strategy of treatment after discussing with the neurosurgeon. In all these Abhishek’s, MRI/CT and all blood investigations will be NORMAL! this means that the problem is not shown in any test and is purely a CLINICAL DIAGNOSIS by experts qualified in Movement Disorders & Stereotactic Functional Neurosurgery  The name of the surgery is STEREOTACTIC, MRI GUIDED RIGHT Vo THALAMOTOMY (RF  LESIONING / ABLATION). THIS IS A BRAIN CIRCUITS SURGERY.

“It is a rare disorder which occurs to 1 % among the musician professionals and if medical management fails (Botulinum toxin and drugs), then surgery is the next option. It is a very delicate surgery and requires monitoring during the operation,” Dr. Sanjiv was quoted as saying
Speaking about the Surgery, Dr. Sharan Srinivasan Said, “Under LA (local Anesthesia) a 14 mm hole was made in the skull and a specialised electrode was passed into the brain. These targets are usually 8-9 centimetres deep inside the brain! Then the doctor stimulated the brain to confirm the right location and also to prevent any possible side effects or complications due to other circuits being targeted / affected. After reconfirming the target location, a RF (radio Frequency) lesion was made using a specialised RF ablation machine. 5-7 lesions were made, each at  60-70 degrees centigrade and for 30-40 seconds. During this entire surgery, Abhishek was fully awake and was playing the guitar since this problem only comes when he tries to play his guitar. Hence this feedback was very important for the doctors to get the exact location of the target to be lesioned.   He underwent a MRI guided awake stereotactic right Vo (ventralis oralis) thalamotomy - RF (radio frequency) ablation. He had 100% relief of his symptoms on the operating table!

This is the 8th time such a complex procedure to cure musician’s dystonia had been carried out across the globe and it is for the first ever time in India that a Vo thalamotomy has been done” he was quoted as saying.

Abhishek’s Facebook Page has full of inspirational quotes out of which one reads “Don’t Quit. You are already in Pain. You are already Hurt. Get a reward from it.” Maybe this was what drew him to take up such a big risk for himself.  For the first time, in the History of India, this life changing Live Brain Surgery for Guitarist / Musicians Dystonia was performed and here he is, sitting in front of the crowd, strumming his Guitar of Success.
