The concept of a Neurosciences and Neurocare Centre, where world standard Medical Care can be obtained at affordable rates in the mission statement of NNC.
The National Neurosciences Centre, Calcutta was founded in 1997 as a joint venture between the Peerless Hospital and the Neurosciences Foundation Bengal. Dr R P Sengupta, Chairman, NNC, was the driving force that led to the foundation of NNC. He along with Dr Abhijit Guha, Neurosurgeon, Canada and Dr Chandranath Sen, Neurosurgeon USA, are the main sources of inspiration for the inception and working of the Centre.
Since its inception there has been a constant endeavour to constantly improve the standards of medical care delivery, to ensure safe and upto date neurological care for the people of Bengal and the whole of Eastern India. Equipped with a strong, experienced and knowledgeable staff, a 14 bedded Neurointensive Care Ward, two exclusive Neurosurgical Operation Theatres, in house Diagnostic Facilities eg DSA, CT Scan, EEG, EMG-NCV, the Centre has been active in its mission for almost a decade.
Recognizing its role in Neuroscience Clinical Care, the National Board of Examinations, New Delhi has recognized NNC as a Centre for Specialised training in Neuromedicine and Neurosurgery. The NNC is also involved in improving awareness amongst the public and medical practitioners so that treatment planning and management starts at the grass root level.
