Naresh Kapoor

Executive Director
BLK Super Speciality Hospital


Dear Readers,

We began the month by celebrating one of the most signifi cant days for any hospital – Doctor’s Day. The day was celebrated in both the group hospitals i.e. New Delhi and Mumbai. We observed the day by honouring the doctors and showing appreciation to them through various activities and programs. On this occasion, we expressed our gratitude for their hard work, dedication and commitment towards their patients and acknowledged their contribution to the society. The cover story for this month is an informative and moving piece on premature deliveries. It is one of the very few cases in India where a 23-week gestation baby was nursed to normalcy by a team of doctors at Nanavati Super Speciality Hospital, Mumbai. The team left no stone unturned for three critical months in the Neonatal ICU and ensured smooth transition of extremely small pre-term baby from the womb to the outside world.

Another equally inspirational story is covered about a Living Donor Liver Transplant at BLK Super Speciality Hospital of an international patient who was suffering with Cirrhosis. There are other equally interesting stories about the successful treatment of Middle Cerebral Artery Aneurysm, Total Knee Replacement in obese patients and another case that will remind us of the importance of routine health check-up.

We would like to express our gratitude to all the contributors for their stories that we bring to you month on month. The editorial team looks forward to receiving your opinions and feedback besides your contributed articles at

Stay healthy, stay happy!
