Parents of children with brain disorders such as autism and cerebral palsy were shown alternative methods for treatment of these conditions to help them live long and healthy lives.

The event was led by Professor Dr Alok Sharma, a neurosurgeon and neuroscientist from the NeuroGen Institute in Mumbai.

“It was believed and is still believed by many doctors that stem cell has no role in the regeneration of neural cells. That’s not the case anymore. Though there is no treatment and cure that is a hundred per cent successful, many positive and encouraging results are seen with stem cell treatment.” - Professor Dr Alok Sharma

Displaying the treatment technique to his audience, Sharma also showed the audience post and pre-treatment videos of his patients who’d undergone stem cell research.
