LAVH done in manali for the first time

Dr. Padmaja and Dr. Sarah performing laparoscopyLaparoscopically assisted vaginal hysterectomy was succesfully performed in Manali for the first time in history yesterday (3rd of June 2012). Drs. Neerja Mistry from Mumbai, Dr. Padmaja from Bangalore Baptist hospital and Dr. Sarah our gynaecologist succesfully performed these surgeries.

In this surgery the uterus is removed from the vagina after dissection through a laparoscope, avoiding a large abdominal incision.

The patients are doing well and are likely to be discharged today.

We congratulate them, are extremely grateful to God for this.

This will be a new service offered to the people of this region.

Memorial service for Ms. Champa Rani

There was a memorial service for Ms. Champa Rani on the 31st of March 2011. Family was in attendance. It was a moving and emotional time for all. Champa was dearly loved and an exemplary person in all aspects of her life. The hospital will initiate an award in her memory called the Champa Rani memorial award for the ideal employee, so her memory is perpetuated for the person that she was. A fund will also be started to educate a girl every year in her memory.

Thanks for the equipement

A couple from Chennai brought their eleventh month girl child cyanosed. The child had been unwell for a few days and had not been feeding. They spoon fed her horlicks after which she became very sick. She had aspirated and was brought with severe respiratory distress. She had a background bilateral pneumonia. Initial improvement led to later deterioration and she had a respiratory arrest from which she was resuscitated and then ventilated. She was later transferred to CMC Ludhiana via our ventilated ambulance. This was a working run of all our recently donated equipment saving this girls life. Thanks all of you who played a part in this! The child is getting better now, from what we hear.

Just back after a break for three weeks. This was welcome and refreshing. There has been quite a bit of snow this year and it is still cold. Hospital attendance has dropped, for which we are grateful! Look forward to more regular posts.
