After being dismissed by several doctors for a decade, Manjit, from Ganganagar district, underwent life saving surgery at BMCHRC for rare cancer.
Jaipur: Manjit, a resident of Ganganager district in Rajasthan, underwent life saving surgery at Bhagwan Mahavir Cancer Hospital & research Center (BMCHRC) in Jaipur after being refused by several doctors for ten long years.
BMCHRC, an institution, accredited by NABH (National Accreditation Board for Hospitals & Healthcare Providers), came into existence in the year 1997 as a cancer specialty hospital offering cancer prevention, treatment, education and research with just 50 beds at an initial stage.
Manjit was diagnosed with a nine kilogramme rare large Soft Tissue Sarcoma (9Kg) with Neuro Vascular involvement. After visiting several hospitals for treatment and months of pain in his joints and muscles with difficulty in walk, Manjit underwent several investigations which revealed he had cancer and doctors suggested him for leg amputation.
He was operated elsewhere in 2013 but swelling progressed, post which, he consulted Dr Praveen Gupta, Senior Bone cancer Specialist of BMCHRC. Dr Gupta and his team operated the patient and removed the 9 kg tumor with the reconstruction of the vessels from the opposite leg.
Post a long and successful surgery and few physiotherapy sessions, Manjit recovered and regained the strength of his legs and walked out from hospital with a grin of happiness and satisfaction.
After eighteen years of its existence, BMCHRC, has now grown into a super-specialty, 200-beded hospital with leading edge infrastructure housing several wards, laboratories, utility services and specialties.
Organ specific departments at BMCHRC include Surgical Oncology, Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Radiology, Pathology and Blood Bank. A separate seven-storied IPD block is a recent addition in the better interest of patient care.
