NEW PRAGUE, Minn. — Mayo Clinic Health System in New Prague recently announced that Manish Sharma, M.B.B.S., began providing neurosurgery services in New Prague every third week starting this past September. As a neurosurgeon, Dr. Sharma specializes in problems associated with the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves, diagnosing and treating adults who have issues with chronic headaches, neck and back pain, arm and leg pain, tumors and a wide range of other neurologic issues.
Originally from India, Dr. Sharma received his training at the Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research (JIPMER) in Pondicherry, India. He has served as a Fellow of peripheral nerve surgery in the Department of Neurological Surgery at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. He is currently an Associate Professor at the Mayo Clinic School of Medicine as well as Chair of the Department of Neurosurgery at the Mayo Clinic Health System in Mankato.
“Neurosurgery is much more than simply addressing issues of the brain,” says Dr. Sharma. “The human body has over 100 billion nerve cells and any number of issues can occur throughout the skull, spine and peripheral nerves. My job is to help people recognize their problem and work with them to regain control of their physical wellbeing.”
“Having an experienced neurosurgeon such as Dr. Sharma provide care in New Prague is a great advantage to our local patients,” says Martin Herrmann, M.D., Mayo Clinic Health System in New Prague medical director. “We’re pleased to welcome Dr. Sharma and increase the scope of specialty care we provide to our community.”
“Mayo Clinic is the number one hospital in the United States if not the world,” says Dr. Sharma. “We have a reputation of putting patient care first. I’ve experienced this not only as a provider, but also as a patient. I can relate to my patients seeking care for these issues, some of which I’ve experienced myself, and am here to help.”
