Aurangabad, August 13:
With the availability of the second super-specialist in the super-specialty wing of the Government Medical College and Hospital (GMCH), the costly treatment of urinary disorders will be provided to ordinary people at government rates.
After seven years of waiting, Dr. Venkat Gite joined the Super-specialty block as head of the urology department. Outpatient Department (OPD) services will begin on August 18 for patients referred from the GMCH Surgical Department.
The Super Specialty Block (SSB) was established to provide facilities such as Neurosurgery, Neurology, Nephrology, Urology, Burn Unit, and Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery.
(CVTS) under one roof to bring the expensive treatment of various diseases within the reach of the general public through this wing.
During the Covid situation, it seemed like the main focus of this project was lost. We feared the privatization of SSB. But with the assurance given by the Chief Minister during his visit to the city, there will be no privatization. The CVTS superspecialist has joined the wing and has been providing OPD services for four months.
A total of 95% of the Cath Lab work has been completed and the necessary equipment will be available within the next three days. Dr. Sudhir Chaudhary, the Special Duty Officer (OSD) of the Superspeciality block is trying to make the catheterization lab available within the next ten days.
Dr Sudhir Chaudhary said Dr Venkat Gite joined as a super specialist. “Since patient registration is not done in the subspecialty wing, the subspecialist will serve patients referred by physicians in the department of surgery. Efforts are underway to set up an operating room and catheterization laboratory in the near future,” he added.
