What is Myasthenia Gravis?

Myasthenia Gravis is a neuromuscular, autoimmune disease that causes the skeletal muscles to become fragile and weak by attacking the nerves that control them. Tendons attach skeletal muscles to the bones, facilitating body part movement in humans. The muscles receive signals from the associating nerves, telling them to contract and relax. 

However, the body’s immune system secretes abnormal antibodies in people who have Myasthenia Gravis, specially as a defence mechanism against certain bacteria or foreign substances. This prevents the muscles from getting signals from the nerves, eventually resulting in weakness and frailness. This disease can affect patients of any age; however, it is most common in men older than 60 years and women younger than 40.

Get the Best Treatment for Myasthenia Gravis!

Dr Aloy Mukherjee is one of the most experienced and top-tier surgeons in India with incredible knowledge and expertise in treating Myasthenia Gravis. He will thoroughly evaluate your health condition and recommend the right treatment procedure: 

  • Immunosuppressants and Steroids: In case surgery is not the option, we use medications to help alter the functioning of the immune system and reduce the secretion of antibodies that may cause Myasthenia Gravis. These medications are quite effective, helping alleviate the symptoms. 

  • Cholinesterase Inhibitors: This type of medication helps block the chemical that causes the muscles to relax after contraction. It helps improve the communication between the muscles and the nerves and addresses the symptom of muscle weakness. 

  • Intravenous Therapy: In some cases where the symptoms have suddenly worsened or you are preparing for surgery, our doctor suggests intravenous therapies like intravenous immunoglobulin, plasmapheresis, and monoclonal antibody. 

  • Surgery: Often, Myasthenia Gravis may cause a tumour to develop in the thymus gland. If you have been diagnosed with a tumour, known as thymoma, then Dr Aloy Mukherjee will remove it surgically to help alleviate the symptoms. Even if you do not have a tumour, we recommend getting the gland removed surgically. The surgery can help improve the symptoms by up to 70%.
