Dr. HANS RAJ, MBBS(AFMC), MD(DU)
Dr. Hans Raj, MD has been a pioneer in the field of Clinical Neurophysiology since 1982. He was among the first in the larger part of the country to do Nerve Conduction (NCV), Electromyography (EMG) and Evoked Potential Studies (Visual, Auditory and Somato sensory) for the diagnosis and management of Neuro-muscular diseases causing pain, numbness, tingling, weakness in arms and legs, which assisted the neurologists, orthopedists and other specialists to know where the nerves and muscles were affected.
He also developed expertise in Ocular Physiology to do ISCEV Standard (International Society of Clinical Electrophysiology for Vision) VEP, Pattern ERG, Full field ERG and Multifocal ERG, EOG to detect if the problem is in Retina (Rods or Cones), or at macula or in the optic nerve.
He acquired much of his training from his passion and under long mentorship of renowned Physiology-Scientist Dr. A. S. Paintal, FRS, Padma Vibhushan, and with whom he published his research work on J receptors and H reflex for breathlessness and fatigue in the international journals. He also acquired much of his knowledge and skills through courses and observerships at Dr. Santosh Kumar’s Electrodiagnostic Centre at Everett, Professor Eisen’s Centre at Univ of British Columbia, and Dr Bhagwan Shahani’s Hands-on courses. He is a member of
The American Association of Neuromuscular & Electrodiagnostic Medicine (AANEM),
The International Society of Clinical Electrophysiology for Vision (ISCEV), and
The New York Academy of Sciences (NYAS).
He is an AFMC alumnus, and has served in the Short Service of the Indian Army Medical Corps, and has been an ad-hoc faculty and examiner in the Physiology Department of Lady Irwin College, Delhi, and did his post-graduation from Univ of Delhi under Professor Paintal.
