Challenging cases, engagement programmes, newer collaborations, the
month of July was replete with many activities for both the hospitals
in Delhi and Mumbai.
The cover story, this month is about a case where doctors at BLK
displayed quick decision making to save the life of a young man, who
had burnt the inner lining of his stomach while eating chilly burgers in
a contest. There is also this story about an elderly lady who underwent
Hypertrophic Obstructive Cardiomyopathy which is a high risk surgery
demanding acute precision.
Apart from these intriguing cases from BLK, we also have some
remarkable stories from the team of doctors at Nanavati, our group
hospital in Mumbai. The case of a young doctor dealing with pain
and weakness because of a paralabral cyst on his shoulder with nerve
compression or the challenging case of a 32 year old pregnant lady
diagnosed with Peripartum Cardiomyopathy, all add to our growing
repertoire of ‘medical marvels.’
As a group, it is an ongoing progression for us to increase our footprint
both in India as well as overseas. In continuation with our vision, we
have entered into yet another strategic agreement with three different
agencies of Republic of Sudan. The agreement aims to promote
cooperation, mutual understanding between our two countries with
an aim to develop educational, scientific and medical cooperation for
excellence through knowledge, skills transfer and capacity building.
We have always been at the forefront of adopting new technology and
techniques in all our programs and very recently, we have been lauded
for our Cost Management Programme, fetching us the much -coveted
‘National Award for Excellence in Cost Management,’ by Institute
of Cost Accountants of India. Such recognition of our efforts, surely
makes our achievements more meaningful.
