Dear Reader,

Being one of the leading tertiary healthcare providers in the country, we face many challenges day in and day out. It is these challenges that drive us to continue doing what we do best and offer our patients the best healthcare services.

Like every month, we bring you some of the choicest stories that will surely be of interest to you. The cover story features the case of a 56-year-old female patient who was brought to our group hospital in Mumbai with sudden onset of chest pain, perspiration and breathlessness. The patient was in a critical condition. However, thanks to the commendable expertise of the doctors at Nanavati she is now living a much improved life.

There is also a story of how the Kidney of a 55-year-old gentleman was preserved with the help of NephronSparing Surgery- a successful open Partial Nephrectomy wherein 50% of his left kidney was preserved. You will also come across the case of a 30-year-old woman from Nagaland with facial deformity and OSA who found a new smile after undergoing a life transforming advanced Plastic Surgery at BLK.

Another inspiring read is the story of how an untiring team effort of expert doctors at BLK cured a sick newborn with cardiac rhythm disorders. One very interesting story is the case of a 77 year-old patient with a rare condition known as Kummell’s Disease. We are also very happy to present an interesting article on ‘I Am and I Will’ campaign which aims to spread awareness about Cancer and the ways of combating Cancers with advanced surgical procedures. We have also featured a good to know information piece on the various aspect of Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC).

We are happy that we have come a long way and in the process have grown at an inspiring pace. But most importantly, we feel very fortunate and humbled to be able to make a difference in people's lives.

We would again like to thank all of you for your valuable articles and feedbacks. We look forward to receiving more articles and stories from our regular contributors as well as first timers. You can connect with us at editorial@blkhospital.com .
