Sunrise Hospital, Delhi has conducted complicated laparoscopic surgeries as a part of Corporate social responsibility (CSR) and Continuing medical education (CME) programmes. In India, there is a general tendency to resort to open surgeries.
The doctors from Sunrise Hospital have set an example proving laparoscopic surgeries can bring solution to several complex situations.
24 laparoscopic surgeries were done in order to rectify several complex disorders. The surgeries were performed on the people under the age group of 18 to 45+.
Dr Hafeez Rahman, world renowned Gynaecologist and Laparoscopic Surgeon, (Chairman, Sunrise Hospital) and Dr Nikita Trehan, Gynaecologist and laparoscopic surgeon (Managing Director, Sunrise Hospital, New Delhi) along with her qualified team performed these complex surgeries.
Responding to the landmark surgeries, Dr Hafeez Rahman, Consultant Gynaecologist and Laparoscopic Surgeon, (Chairman, Sunrise Hospital), said, “People have this myth that open surgery is done to rectify the laparoscopic surgeries. However, here we have done the other way round. Laparoscopic surgeries were done to rectify the damage caused by open surgeries.”
“No one deserves open surgeries when it can be done laparoscopically. We believe in knowledge sharing. So, this CME will act as a platform for exchanging medical information. Further, this is a CSR activity. The usual cost of these surgeries are between Rs 1.5-2 lakh, however, here they just paid Rs 10-20 k for the surgeries i.e. for the disposals only,” Dr Nikita Trehan, Gynaecologist and laparoscopic surgeon and Managing Director, Sunrise Hospital New Delhi said.
One of the patients named Rita (name changed) says, “Earlier I had visited 4-5 doctors before and all of them had suggested open surgeries. It is only when I came to Dr Nikita Trehan that I realised complexities can be solved laparoscopically. My uterus was hanging between my legs. Today, my uterus is restored back and that too laparoscopically.”
