Success Stories

Difficult eye cataract surgery successful

            Mr. Vitthal Gaikwad, 65 of Ambap, Taluka Hatkanangle, underwent successful cataract surgery at Siddhagiri Hospital on Thursday 22nd December, 2011. He had been suffering from kidney problems for the last two years. His hands, feet and face were swollen and he had difficulty urinating so he had to start dialysis treatment. He had been blind for four months, so he was referred to an ophthalmologist elsewhere for cataracts. Ophthalmologists say that there is no guarantee that eyes will be able to see even after surgery. After that the patient Mr. Gaikwad was admitted to the Siddhagiri hospital. After the examination, the ophthalmologist decided to perform the surgery. Anesthesia and surgery are extremely complicated as dialysis treatment is ongoing. On the second day after the surgery, the patient's eyesight was checked and he became clear and clean. Dr. Rahul Fase, Dr. Nitin Kesarkar and Assistant Megha Patil of Ophthalmology Department performed the surgery.
