Orthopedic camp in Manali

Manali, though very picturesque, is difficult to access by road. Just yesterday, a bus fell into the river, killing 37 people. There is no orthopedic surgeon as yet in Manali, though we look forward to the return of Dr. Dennis Martin, who is currently being trained as one in CMC Vellore.

One can very well imagine the extent of the need of orthopedic care, considering all the other falls and breaks that the young and old are succeptible to anyway. Dr. Kenny David is an orthopedic surgeon and spine specialist who is currently conducting a camp till the 10th of May. He has already seen a huge number of patients and is operating every day. Many of these patients would have to travel to chandigarh to get the surgical attention that he is now providing them. We thank both Kenny and his wife, Judy, for their help.  A separate news item will come on what Dr. Judy is doing, so watch this space!
