Neurosurgeon Ramesh Babu
Donates $10,000 Toward Research To Find A Cure!
By Suzanne Grenell
Amazingly brilliant neurosurgeons are being trained in 21st century India and many are coming to the United States to share their outstanding skills. Ramesh P. Babu, M.Ch,M.D., Clinical Associate Professor at New York University (NYU) Medical Center, is one of the talented, passionate, compassionate doctors willing to share their gifts with us.
Dr. Babu began his neurosurgical training in India at the National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences before coming to the United States and completing his residency at the NYU Medical Center in New York City, New York. Following his training, Dr. Babu completed two fellowships in skull base and microvascular neurosurgery at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center under the tutelage of Drs. Jannetta and Sekhar, and at the Nordtstadt Klinik in Hanover, Germany under Professor Samii. Dr. Babu is also an active member of the North American Skull Base Society. Along with a focus in management of spine disorders, Dr. Ramesh Babu also has intense interest in the treatment(s) and ultimate cure of Trigeminal Neuralgia and other neuropathic pain conditions. Dr. Babu has successfully treated many trigeminal neuralgia and related facial neuropathic pain patients. However, he believes the time has come for research to find a cure.
Dr. Ramesh Babu is one of The Facial Pain Research Foundation's leading medical advocates. "What the mind doesn't know, the eyes can't see", explains Dr. Babu. He believes we need to think, talk, and explore new, successful ideas and possibilities for patient cures in the 21st century. "We are oblivious to ignorance and need to think outside of boundaries and imagined boxes." Dr. Babu goes on to say, "Atypical neuropathic pain is still a mystery that has never been solved." Advanced technology would help to see inside the brain, resulting in improved clarity of patient issues ("see it, study it, understand it, cure it"). Dr. Babu has both passion and compassion for neuropathic facial pain patients. He believes better knowledge and "a real cure" for this large cranial nerve disorder could also lead to breakthroughs in other devastating diseases such as Parkinson's or MS.
Dr. Babu is a lifetime member of the Neurosurgery Independent Doctors of New York. He is also in Strathmore's Who's Who, where inclusion is limited to individuals having demonstrated leadership and achievement in their occupation, industry, or profession. In addition, in 2009 Dr. Babu achieved a Congressional Achievement Award in recognition of his outstanding and invaluable service to the Community. He is committed to standing up and moving the "Stop the Pain" cure of The Facial Pain Research Foundation forward with potential critical new strategies, including complimentary alternative approaches. "An open mind is critical," he confidently states. Dr. Babu has committed $10,000 to the Facial Pain Research Foundation as a reflection of his dedication to the cause.
