Note : I personally know Kauvery Heartcity's Infra very much---Infact they saved my father from Heart Attack-----Such a Massive Infra for all Cardiac Ailments

Many from Trichy and South TN visited Chennai for High-End Cardiac Treatments before this Heartcity opened---But after this Kauvery Heartcity was opened, even Chennai Appollo and Miot Hospitals advise the Patients coming from Trichy and South TN to refer to this Heartcity as all Facilities available at Chennai Apollo and MIOT are available at Kauvery Heartcity

My family too experienced the same situation and we came back from Chennai to Refer to Kauvery Heartcity and I am Proud that Trichy has started to function Independently in Medical Tourism sector :)

The Kauvery Hospital will open an exclusive Kauvery Brain and Spine Centre at its Cantonment unit here on May 1 with a state-of-the-art facilities.

“Brain and spine are the most complex and delicate organs of the body. Diseases of brain and spine affect the patient most. Taking due advantage of science and technological advancement, treatment facilities too have developed,” said G. Jos Jasper, Head of Department of Brain and Spine Centre.

Dr. Jasper told presspersons here on Friday that managing diseases associated with brain and spine needs a team of specific experts aided by the best of what current science and technology has in store.

The new centre has the required infrastructure ranging from ‘Neuro Navigation technology’ to ‘Stealth Station’. The Neuro navigation technology guides surgeon to locate the exact part of the brain or spine that needs surgery. For patients who suffer a stroke, treatment should be provided within 4 to 5 hours. “Latest stroke management technology has been introduced here. Intra Arterial Thrombectomy (IAT), a catheter is introduced into the blocked vessel for mechanical clearing of clot using a clot extractor,” he said.

The centre will be inaugurated on May 1.

Article about Trichy emerging as a Organ Transplant Medical Tourism Destination---Kauvery Hospitals to soon Start Exclusive Facility for Liver and Heart Transplants also

Quote:
Many lives are being saved through Tamil Nadu’s stellar organ donation programme

Arunachalam* spent two years consulting a general physician despite knowing that his kidneys were damaged. “When I became too weak and tired to continue with the monthly check-ups and tablets, we approached a hospital in Tiruchi,” says the 44-year-old Mayiladuthurai-based goldsmith. “If I had sought proper help in the beginning, we may have spent less money on treatment.

The eventual outcome: dialysis for six months to stabilise renal function, followed by a kidney transplant from his wife in April, 2014.

Mahesh* was unconscious when his family members rushed the former factory manager from Kumbakonam to a private hospital in Tiruchi.
Mahesh had been trying allopathic and alternative therapies to deal with his malfunctioning kidneys for four to five years, but they only seemed to create chronic fatigue and intense breathlessness. He had collapsed after losing up to 38 kilos in a month and a half.

Mahesh’s mother saved his life by donating one of her kidneys to him in August, 2015. “I wasn’t scared for myself, but I wanted my son to become all right,” she says.

***

Organ transplantation in the country has become more prevalent as Indians feel the impact of lifestyle diseases like diabetes and hypertension.

According to a report published online by the Tamil Nadu Organ Sharing Registry (tnos.org), the State leads in deceased organ donation in the country with an organ donation rate of 1.8 per million population in 2013. The national organ donation rate in 2013 was 0.26 per million populations.

Tamil Nadu’s organ donation system, based on stringent government monitoring and a centralised donor registration, is seen as a model for the rest of India.

The 1994 Transplantation of Human Organs Act legalised for the first time, the concept of brain death which paved the way for hospitals to harvest organs from donors whose hearts were beating, but who had lost the ability to breathe independently due to irreversible brain damage.

However, organ donation got mired for a while in allegations of trafficking as stories of ‘kidneys for sale’ were widely reported.

There has been a renewed push to make organ transplantation an ethical process in the past decade, with the backing of the State government.

“Every transplant has to go through a monitoring committee, which does the due diligence so that the hospital’s responsibility is taken away,” says S. Mannivannan, Joint Managing Director, Kauvery Hospital, which operates in Tiruchi and Chennai. “We are here to diagnose and treat, not investigate the donors themselves. The State government has also played a major role in promoting cadaver donations.”


Among the new norms are that the potential donor can register only with one hospital.

All the relevant information is available in a centralised pool, monitored by the committee that will search for local patients and centres that can do the cadaver transplant.

***

Awareness about organ donation has also risen significantly after the momentum created by the decision of Thirukazhukundram, Kanchi District–based doctor couple S. Ashokan and Pushpanjali to donate the organs of their son Hithendran after he died in a road accident on September 20, 2008 (see related story below).

“The act of donation helps relatives in the grieving process. It doesn’t take away the pain of their loss; however, it does help them to know that someone else is alive because of their loved one’s donation,” says Dr. Ashokan in an email interview.

“Today our son’s organs are helping a woman in Kerala to live a healthy life. Surprisingly she has mothered a baby boy after the transplantation and it gives us immense satisfaction that our son has helped society in a great way,” he adds.

The A.P. Hithendran Memorial Trust today campaigns to raise awareness not just about organ donation, but also road safety. As the 2013 report notes, out of the 130 deceased donors from Tamil Nadu, 84 were medico-legal cases, mostly involving road traffic accidents.

Government insurance schemes have helped to subsidise the cost of transplant operations. In the case of renal disease, compared to dialysis, which is a clinical purification of the blood to substitute the normal function of the kidney, transplants are considered a more long-lasting solution. Besides, dialysis treatments can cost up to Rs. 18,000 per month, especially if the patient has to travel to a bigger city for treatment.

So successful have transplant surgeries become that, says Dr. Mannivannan, “we are seeing kidney recipients 15-16 years after transplant. If the kidney is from a relative, it will last on average from 10-12 years. From an unrelated donor, maybe 6-8 years.”

Besides renal cases, Kauvery Hospital is planning to start an exclusive facility for liver and cardiac transplant this year, and has stepped up its eye donation campaign.

Out of the 232 transplants done at Kauvery Hospital so far, 23 have been from deceased donors.

“Many people will not accept brain death, because they can see the heart-beat going on and the machines still switched on. Once the relatives are convinced and willing for donation, then we have to assess the patient,” says Dr. T. Rajarajan, nephrologist, Kauvery Hospital, who has done 18-19 transplants since 2013. “Potentially we can remove, heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, pancreas, small intestine and skin for transplant.”

“Once the tests are done, the real dynamic work starts, because we have to maintain the organs until they are ready to be harvested,” says Dr. S. Senthilkumar, senior consultant urologist and andrologist, Kauvery Hospital. “We have to correct the metabolism, and coordinate the work of the different medical teams that will be taking the organs, plus the government agencies involved - usually this takes up to 48 hours,” he adds.

With India being the diabetic capital of the world, kidney transplants dominate the transplant surgery scenario in Tier II cities like Tiruchi.

“Besides diabetes and hypertension, renal disease is also caused by the abuse of over-the-counter painkillers and native medicines which can affect the kidney in the long run,” says Dr. S. Kandasamy, nephrologist at the Kauvery Hospital. “We are seeing about 3-4 new cases (of kidney malfunction) per day in Tiruchi, but these are the tip of the iceberg,” he adds.


Superstitions and taboos, not to mention misinformation spread by films, tend to dissuade patients from seeking medical help earlier, often to their own detriment.

Post-operative care for the transplant patient is also an important part of the recovery, says Dr. Ashokan. “Due to advancement in surgical procedures, these days transplantation is almost 90 per cent successful. But post-transplant care for patients is very important and may sometimes may be costlier than anticipated.”

Asked about his first thought after his operation, Mahesh replies: “I opened my eyes and felt relieved that I was still alive. And then when I saw the doctors, they looked like God to me.”

Govt medical college gets MCI approval for MD psychiatry course

Quote:
P Viswanatham Government Medical College (KAPVGMC) will introduce MD (psychiatry) with one seat from next academic year following approval from the Medical Council of India (MCI). On Wednesday, a one-man team from MCI carried out an inspection for the renewal of MD-general medicine course.

"Our college had applied for permission from MCI to start MD in psychiatry course. We have got the permission from the council which allowed us to start the course with one seat from the next academic year," a senior official in the college told TOI, on condition of anonymity, on Wednesday.

The selection of an MBBS student for the course will be through either the All India Post Graduate Medical Entrance Examination (AIPGMEE) or state level entrance exam.

MD (general medicine) was started in the college in 2007 with four seats. As per the council norms, the course is subjected to MCI review at regular intervals.

The college administration exuded confidence that they will get the renewal for the course. "We have the manpower and facilities for the post-graduate courses. So, there will be no problem in holding back the recognition," said a senior official.

The college is all set to face two more inspections for MS (general surgery) and MD (bio chemistry) on Thursday and Friday respectively
