Dear Readers,
Let me first wish you and your loved ones a healthy and a happy new year!

For this first issue of 2017, our editorial team has picked up some very interesting stories. The cover story is about an international patient from Uzbekistan who underwent Digital Spine Anlaysis (DSA) and embolisation of venous malfunction to recover from a condition where he couldn't walk for more than two years.

This issue also highlights the usage of latest third generation pinless Articulate Surface Mounted Technology for Total Knee Replacement, which is quite a jump from the times when surgeons were required to drill pins in the bones to fix the tracker. Our guest columnist, Dr. Prakash Doshi, Director of Trauma & Orthopaedics from Nanavati Super Speciality Hospital talks about the benefits of Multiloc Nailing procedure for Complex Shoulder Fractures.

You will also find another story which is no less interesting about a middle-aged woman who underwent Laparoscopic removal of uterine lining cancer using Sentinel Lymph Node Mapping.

As part of our ongoing campaign to reach out beyond the horizons, we have also collaborated with Republican Research Centre of Emergency Medicine (RRCEM) to extend medical aid to remote areas of Uzbekistan.

Lastly, I would like to congratulate our Liver Transplant team for completing 100 successful transplants, thus, ending the year on a high note. I am sure this New Year has many such milestones waiting for us to achieve.

We are more than happy to continue receiving suggestions and feedback besides contributed articles. You can connect with us at We hope to bring you stories and articles that are of interest to you throughout the year.
