Dear Readers,

With the air of festivity all around, it is important to ensure good health not just for ourselves but also for everyone in the family to enjoy the festivals in their full spirit.

Like every month, we bring you some of the important stories, that I am sure will interest you. The cover story this month features the case of a young boy with Osteoid Osteoma, a form of a benign Osteoblastic Tumour who underwent surgical excision at Nanavati. You will also come across an interesting story about a patient who underwent Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG) with Left Internal Mammary Artery (LIMA) but the wound was not healing despite multiple visits to hospitals. Our doctors at Nanavati found a lasting solution to his recurring problem.

Apart from such intriguing cases , we also have some remarkable stories from our team of doctors at BLK. The case of an elusive diagnosis on an elderly female patient that led to extreme weight loss and dwindling quality of life but was eventually diagnosed as Abdominal Angina or the case of one of our international patrons who had a painful problem around his hip after a road accident years ago but was fi nally taken care of with a Total Hip Replacement surgery. The article on Rheumatoid Arthritis yet again underlines the importance of early diagnosis and treatment.

Like always, we would like to express our gratitude to all those who have contributed stories and articles which never fail to add value to our newsletter. We hope you will continue to support us and we will be looking forward to wonderful pieces from our new contributors as well. Our editorial team will be happy to connect with you at:

May this festive season enrich your lives with happiness, prosperity and good health.

Stay Healthy, Stay Happy!
