Naresh Kapoor

Executive Director
BLK Super Speciality Hospital


Dear Readers,

Quite reflective of the spring season, momentous achievements and celebrations marked the past month.

A young IAS aspirant was the first patient to receive a Heart Transplant at BLK, Delhi. He shares his amazing story of getting a second chance at life and pursue his goals.

In Delhi, we also celebrated the World Kidney Day in the august presence of Shri Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting and many other dignitaries. At Nanavati, in Mumbai, the state-of-the-art Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) and Birthing Centre were inaugurated, by none other than the bollywood megastar Shah Rukh Khan.

With the seamless transition of Radiant Pulse to its present form, we aim to bring more interesting stories and articles to you. Apart from the story of successful Heart Transplant, you will find other engaging pieces in this issue that include, how a 72 year old gentleman was saved by timely intervention with Bronchoscopy and how a Gold Implant on the upper eye lid cured a young man to regain the functioning of his eye. You will also find an informative piece on the latest development in the field of Genetics and how the developments are bridging the gap between scientific advances and clinical care.

Our editorial team would like to thank each one of you for sharing their inputs on our last issue of Radiant Pulse. The team would be more than happy to keep receiving your opinions and feedback. Needless to say, your contributed articles will always be welcomed at
