FROM
THE ED's DESK

Dear Readers,

Our group has always put innovation and adoption of new techniques in treatment on top of all the programs. We are very proud to announce that BLK Super Speciality Hospital, New Delhi has been able to prove itself equal to all the challenges and has earned another incredible feather on its cap when our doctors from department of Liver Transplant led by Dr. Sanjay Singh Negi successfully conducted a Liver Transplant surgery after harvesting liver from a donor post his cardiac death, which is possibly the fi rst reported case of successful DCD Liver Transplant in India. The current issue covers this transplant story and we feel that going forward more and more patients would be benefi tted from this technique as we spread awareness about the same.

We have other intriguing stories from our team of doctors at Nanavati which includes the case of a Mumbai-based businessman who had to be airlifted from a European country as he suddenly developed uncontrollable fever, which was later diagnosed as Lyme’s Disease and the case of a 35 year old lady from Nigeria who had been left immobile due to Sickle Cell Disease as well as hip disability but was able to regain movement again post her Total Hip Replacement surgery.

In the month of May, BLK has entered into a strategic agreement with Ministry of Health -Khartoum State, Republic of Sudan. The bilateral agreement aims to set up a platform for mutual sharing of medical, scientifi c and educational collaborations, which will further help to strengthen the healthcare system of Sudan. This will benefi t people of Sudan through regular outreach programs by BLK doctors and also enhance the presence of BLK in other African countries.

Nurses being the backbone of our healthcare delivery system, we very proudly celebrated International Nurses Day at both the Group hospitals and glimpses of celebrations can be seen in the Events and Activities page.

If you have any story to share, our editorial team would be happy to receive them. Ideas to improve the newsletter along with other opinions and feedback are welcome at editorial@blkhospital.com, as always.

Stay healthy, stay happy!
