Wadia to now offer cardiac care for kids

MUMBAI: The city's inadequate paediatric cardiac care will get a boost when Wadia Hospital, a public hospital in Parel, performs its first heart operation on Saturday.

"Our hospital used to refer seven to eight patients a week to KEM Hospital and other private hospitals. Now, we are proud to have cardiac surgery at our own institution," said hospital's medical superintendent Dr Ashwini Jogade. She added that the hospital will upgrade its facility—namely cardiac operation theatre with catheterization lab.

At present, civic-run KEM Hospital in Parel, Kokilaben Ambani Hospital in Andheri and Fortis Hospital in Mulund are among the active hubs for paediatric heart operations in the city. But earlier this year, one of KEM Hospital's heart lung machines broke down, resulting in the death of a few children who were on the hospital's waiting list.

On Saturday, a child with a heart complication, known as patent ductus arteriosus, will be operated on by senior paediatric heart surgeon Dr Suresh Rao. The Wadia cardiac care project is supported by the Healing Little Hearts Foundation set up by India-born British intensivist Dr Sanjiv Nichani.
