THE ED's DESK

Dear Readers,

No gift, it is often said, is bigger than the gift of life. We sometimes come across many people who through their compassion and selflessness reaffirm our faith in humanity. Their act of benevolence inspires us greatly and encourages us to further pursue “our passion for healing”. The cover story for this month’s edition of your newsletter is a miraculous case of a terminally ill man who got a new lease on life thanks to the inspirational act of kindness from the big-hearted family of a young man who was declared brain dead after an unfortunate road accident in Jaipur. The level of challenges involved in the surgery were enormous from logistical issues to the financial condition of the family, the odds were definitely high. However, the benevolence of Mr. Abhay Soi, CMD, Radiant Life Care made this surgery possible without any delay and financial implications on the family. The highly qualified and trained team of BLK doctors immediately swung into action and carried out the whole journey right from flying down to Jaipur to harvest the donor heart, navigating through two green corridors in Delhi & Jaipur and painstakingly performing the transplant process without even forty winks.

The newsletter also carries other interesting stories including one from Nanavati Super Speicality Hospital on reviving the ability to walk for a 85 year old man with a case of “Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia”, an informative piece on Total Hip Arthroplasty in dysplastic hips and another one that discusses the relation between Diabetes and Periodontal diseases and the pathogenic mechanisms linking them. In the coming few weeks, both the group hospitals will soon be launching their own Centre for Robotic Surgery and we are sharing some good-to-know facts about Robotic Surgery System for Advanced Surgical Interventions.
