Doctor: Dr Suresh Joshi:

My daughter was given a second chance to life, thanks to Wockhardt hospital doctors and dedicated paediatric congenital heart centre.

"My one year old daughter May Thaw was suffering from what the doctors called as blue baby syndrome. She was detected with a birth defect in all 4 chambers of her heart. At Myanmar we tried to consult many doctors for her treatment but were not successful and we were devastated that our child would not survive. So we were suggested to come to Wockhardt hospital, Mumbai Central and meet Dr Suresh Joshi. Dr Suresh Joshi specialises in Birth defects in children and we were very impressed with the paediatric centre. My daughter underwent surgery and within ten days she we were discharged from the hospital. Dr. Suresh Joshi and all the staff in the hospital were very professional, dedicated and caring. All our questions were answered and administrative staff was very efficient. The hospital facilities are excellent and the paediatric centre is fully equipped to manage complicated cases with a state of the art intensive care unit. I appreciate Wockhardt Hospital for their efforts and will continue to have a relationship with them."

"My 3 year old daughter Michelle Mutetiwa was suffering from heart failure and was unable to perform usual activities of children her age. She would get breathless and would tire easily. Being from Harare in Zimbabwe we do not have such medical facilities to treat conditions like my daughter and were guided to come to Wockhardt hospital by friends. At Wockhardt Hospital, Mumbai central my daughter was out under medical care of Dr Suresh Joshi. He is a brilliant doctor and is very experienced in handling birth defects in children. Our daughter underwent a 5 hour operation and we were very confident in Dr Joshi and his team. After she recovered we could see the improvement in her. We are grateful to Dr. Joshi and Wockhardt hospital for curing our child. All in all the staff in the hospital are very committed and work as a team. The hygiene is top class and rooms are excellent and comfortable. For medical treatment of this kind I suggest Wockhardt Hospital is the best hospital."

"My daughter Aniefiok Assam was diagnosed with Blue Baby syndrome and we were advised by friends in Nigeria to come to India for treatment. The specialised care and treatment needed for such complicated cases is not possible to in Nigeria. Our country lacks the medical experience and infrastructure. At Wockhardt hospital we met Dr Suresh Joshi. He such a special doctor and I regard him as a father to children of congenital birth defects. His team provided the best of medical care and treatment. The overall hospitality, rooms, equipment were as per international standards. Dr Suresh Joshi is a very experienced paediatric cardiac surgeon. I am grateful for the hospital in giving my child a chance of having a better quality of life."

"My one year old baby Grace Adigub was diagnosed with birth defect and we were told that she has to undergo a corrective open heart surgery called ventricular septal defect closure. She also had a cleft palate. We heard a lot about Wockhardt Hospital in India and decided to come for medical treatment as in Nigeria such facilities are not available and medical care is very expensive. Dr Suresh Joshi is a paediatric heart surgeon and specialises in such complicate surgeries and treated Grace. At the hospital they have a dedicated paediatric unit which is well equipped in handling such cases and the staffs are well trained to handle any complications.
