Executive Director
BLK Super Speciality Hospital


Dear Readers,

Our time perspective plays a key role in virtually every decision we make in day-to-day life. More so in healthcare as many times these perspectives help us in diverting a medical disaster. At BLK and Nanavati, we have been able to save precious lives because of timely and prompt intervention.

The cover story of this issue of Radiant Pulse is about the successful treatment of an infant with ‘Blue Baby Syndrome’ from Sudan. A team of doctors at BLK could provide the timely treatment using Senning’s Operation, enabling the baby to lead a normal life. Another interesting case is of an international patient from Ethiopia, heading home to take up her profession of teaching after getting treated of Brachial Plexus Tumour.

In this issue, we have also highlighted the importance of advanced MRI – neuroimaging technique ‘Diffusion Tensor Imaging’ for pre-operative plan. As a case that can remind us all of the importance of getting treated in well-established set-ups, you will also come across a story of a man with an infection caused by lack of sterilisation of medical tools during a previous surgery.

It is always a matter of great pride for us when our medical specialists are recognised for their contribution in their area of expertise. Recently, Dr. Deep Goel, Director, Minimal Access, Bariatric & Surgical Gastroenterology was felicitated as the ‘Rising Star in his Field’ at the Times Healthcare Achievers Award, 2017 – an initiative instituted by The Times of India group. Congratulations to Dr. Deep Goel and his team.

I must mention here that the feedbacks that we keep receiving give us new insights to improve this newsletter and we could not thank all of you enough for sharing your views and suggestions with us. You can continue to write to us at
