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.
