Doctors at Jupiter Hospital Perform Complex Open heart surgery on 10days old infant


A rare open heart surgery was performed on 10 days old baby boy with the aid of donation from Mukul Madhav Foundation, and Jupiter Foundation.
The surgery was performed by Dr. Abhijeet Naik, Paediatric Cardiac Surgeon, Dr. Rahul Saraf Paediatric Cardiologist, and managed in a dedicated paediatric ICU under the  guidance of Dr. Shrinivas Tambe, Consultant Neonatalogist and Paediatric Intensivist.   

Doctors at Jupiter Hospital performed an open heart surgery on a 10 days old blue baby weighing 2.1kg from Solapur, who was suffering from ‘pulmonary atresia’ with an intact ventricular septum, offering him a new lease of life. The infant was admitted to the hospital as an emergency case and surgery was performed on 1st August under “Hruday Sparsh”, an initiative by Jupiter Hospital.

Doctors had huge challenges at every step, as the child had no blood supply to the lungs and had to be kept alive by starting a prostaglandin infusion, and needed the surgery to open a blood supply to the lungs for survival. The kid underwent an open surgery where the block in the pathway of the right ventricle was removed and a transannular patch was placed to maintain the forward flow of the blood to the lungs.

“This condition of pulmonary atresia with an intact ventricular septum is seen less than 1% of all congenital heart diseases and its incidence 4.1 per 100,000 live births. This is a disease with varied presentation and management,” said Dr Abhijeet Naik, Paediatric Cardiac Surgeon, Jupiter Hospital.

The child was born in Solapur; at the time of birth his colour was blue and had difficulty while breathing hence was referred to one of the tertiary care NICU in the government set up in Pune. The child was then transferred to Jupiter Hospital from this NICU as Jupiter has a specialised paediatric cardiac surgical unit with a dedicated team of doctors. The paediatric cardiologist from Jupiter Hospital, Dr Rahul Saraf examined the child and performed an echocardiography to make a diagnosis for this child.

The surgery was performed by Dr Abhijeet Naik and his team including Dr Rahul Saraf Paediatric Cardiologist, and managed in a dedicated paediatric ICU under the guidance of Dr. Shrinivas Tambe.

The parents of the child are from Solapur and his father works as a welder. They are from a very poor socio-economic background so the surgery was performed under ‘Hruday Sparsh’, an initiative by Jupiter Hospital to spread awareness and providing medical and surgical treatment to the patient in the lower socio-economic background, so they can lead a healthy and happy life.

First Time in India uncemented bilateral TKR successfully performed by SaiShree Hospital

Surgeons at SaiShree Hospital preferred Cementless components because:

•    Uncemented TKR, a surgical procedure to replace the knee joint using biological fixation instead of cement.
•    It helps in preserving important ligament of knee and less bone resection
•    Less pain and improves range of motion prevents clot formation and speeds up the healing process.

Doctors at SaiShree Hospital for Special Surgery, Pune have performed ‘Uncemented Bilateral Total Knee Replacement’ (TKR) surgery successfully on a 58-year-old patient from the city. SaiShree Hospital has become the first in the country to perform this uncemented TKR surgery on both knees.

‘Uncemented TKR’ was performed on both knees on same day, which has happened first time in India at SaiShree Hospital Pune. Patient Anagha Joshi, was suffering from pain in the joints since the last five years, was admitted to Sai Shree Hospital. After the examination of both knees, doctors recommended her to undergo uncemented TKR as the quality of her bone was good enough to support this surgery. After successfully performing this surgery patient returned home within two days. In older patients with poor quality bone or those with osteoporosis, the biological fixation may not be as strong and therefore they may not be ideal candidates for this procedure. However, Anagha Joshi was an exception in this case.

Uncemented TKR is a surgical procedure to replace the knee joint using biological fixation instead of cement to hold the prosthesis in proper position. Fixation is achieved by in growth of bone into microscopic pores present on the surface of the implant, which encourages the natural bone growth onto it. Cementless total knee replacement also appeals to surgeons for young and patients who typically have healthier bones, higher expectations and a longer life expectancy.

Dr Neeraj Adkar, Director, Hip and Knee Surgeon, SaiShree Hospital said, “It’s good for the patient, and we are happy that SaiShree hospital is first in India to successfully perform this uncemented TKR on both knees at a time”.

“I was suffering from joint pains and was frequently consuming pain-killers throughout before the surgery was performed. I faced problem in carrying out my daily activities and could not walk properly. Climbing the steps was an impossible job for me as this caused server pain in my joints. I had to depend on a wooden stick for a support to climb the steps. This deteriorated the quality of my life,” said Anagha Joshi.

This year, a book on ‘Future of Public Sector Banks in India’ released by Mr. Devidas Tuljapurkar, Joint Secretary, All India Bank Employees Association and Chief Guest of the event.



After having participated in India’s freedom struggle, he realized that political freedom bereft of economic freedom, particularly for ordinary masses, is futile and meaningless.  Therefore, he devoted his energies for organizing  Bank employees, textile workers in the city of Mumbai and in a short span earned  respect as an accomplished Trade Union Leader and rose to prominence as a vanguard national leader of All India Bank Employees Association (AIBEA) a biggest and prominent Trade Union Organisation of middle class bank employees  of the country.

Annapurna’s Dada Purao Research & Training Institute (DPR&TI) undertakes special studies, research projects and allied activities at local, regional and state level and works out models of micro finance and combines with other ancillary and other related activities to ensure social security and dignified life to the deprived sections of the society.  Needless to say that towns and cities cannot grow and sustain themselves without resolving the problems of urban poverty.

Every year DPR&TI publishes a book based on its social interventions showing the impact of its various programs and the challenges ahead.  This year, Annapurna has released a book on ‘Future of Public Sector Banks in India’ written by Mr. M.K. Datar, former General Manager, IDBI Bank.

Dr. Medha Purao Samant, Founder Director, Annapurna Pariwar, said, “DPRC has now been registered as a legal entity - a Trust which will undertake training of students and publication of books.”

Mr. Devidas Tuljapurkar praised Dada Purao’s work for welfare of bank employees, He also said “Today is the age of Finance - as it plays a very important role. Recent banking frauds exposed weaknesses of bank systems. But the main problem was of loan overdues of big borrowers. Privatisation to bail them out was not the option.”

Com. Bhalchandra Kango, who published the quarterly magazine said, “People’s money needs to be used for people’s welfare. Actual problem is that the government elected by us does not work for us. Banking sector is facing bad times today with the common man being taxed for the purpose.

Economic literacy needs to be imparted to the common man and Annapurna is one of the organisations doing this successfully”.

Other guests at the function were, Mr. V.C. Joshi, IOB Chief Regional Manager, Mr. Mohanto and Mrs. Vandana Savadi.
