In a surgery service, Kohinoor Hospital pays tributes to doctors who sacrificed their lives for our freedom

MUMBAI, Aug 20 (The CONNECT) - On the occasion of 75th Independence Day, Dr Sanjay Helal, the head of the ear-nose-throat department of the Kohinoor Hospital in Mumbai, is all geared up to  perform surgeries on 75 patients  in the upcoming 15 days. All of these surgeries will be funded by the HCP-ENT Charitable Trust. It will mainly involve surgeries on patients with ruptured eardrums, damaged ear bones, and thyroid. Many people live without treatment due to financial issues. The main objective is to provide affordable treatment to needy people.

Ear infections are usually caused by a sore throat. People ignore ear problems, and symptoms like fluid leaking from the ears, hearing loss, and dizziness are seen in the patients. But, many people avoid going to the doctor.

On the occasion of Independence Day, the Kohinoor Hospital came up with this unique initiative to provide immediate treatment to needy patients.

Dr. Sanjay Helale, Head of Ear-Nose-Throat Department of Kohinoor Hospital, said, "Doctors are the backbone of the healthcare system. The prime duty of a doctor is to treat and cure a patient. But we have dedicated our lives to the heroes who sacrificed their lives for the freedom of the country. In fond memory of those heroes, we are aiming to conduct surgeries on 75 patients in the hospital starting from August 15, and want to treat maximum number of patients to give affordable treatment in the coming days. All of these surgeries will be performed through charitable trusts, "
