    [h=3]There is hope for Tanzanians with health complications related to prostate cancer, kidney stones and paediatric cardiology (heart complications among children) thanks to specialists coming in from India next month.[/h]The Sanitas Medical and Diagnostic Centre Chief Executive Officer, Mr Murthy Venkateswaran, told the ‘Daily News’ online that seeing the seriousness of the problem in the country, he felt there was a need to invite an urologist as well as a paediatric cardiologist.According to the website, the number of new cases of kidney stones diagnosed each year in the country is 132,613 and the number of new cases of prostate cancer is estimated at 1,248.

    Thanks to the successful visit by four super specialists in the fields of Orthopaedics, Gastroenterology, Ear, Nose and Throat and Ophthalmology from Narayana Hospitals in September, we have agreed that specialist will visit us every two months,” he said.Mr Venkateswaran explained that the last time specialists came, over 90 Out Patient cases and performed four minor surgeries at AMI medical centre in Dar es Salaam while two other cases were referred to India due to their complexity.
    He explained that when the specialists are in the country, they will perform surgeries right here in Dar es Salaam with local surgeons present with them for the surgeries.”This would help local surgeons learn new procedures and techniques and also help with post operative care,” he said.
    He revealed that Narayana Hospital specialists would also make it possible to conduct continuing medical education (CME) for Tanzanian medics.“I would strongly urge local surgeons to prepare patients for surgery. We need the numbers so that such visits are sustainable and continue to help people in Tanzania,” he urged.
    Narayana Hrudayalaya Hospital was founded by one of the India’s oldest construction companies “Shankar Narayana Construction Company.” Narayana Hrudayalaya group currently has 5,000 beds in India and aims to have 30,000 beds in the next five years in India to become one of the largest healthcare players in the country.

    Niliiona hii clinic ya sanitas baraka plaza, seems nice and friendly. Japo urologists tulio nao hata hatujawatumia vya kutosha. Why not arrange a camp day utumie local specialiasts? Just thinking. . .
