15 children undergo heart surgery at Wockhardt

The Wockhardt Hospital at Mumbai Central on Monday announced that it had successfully performed 15 complicated heart surgeries on children this year. The hospital has started an initiative called Little Heart where patients who cannot afford treatment are offered free surgeries.

Dr. Suresh Joshi, director of the hospital’s paediatric and congenital heart centre, said, "Cardiac procedures are complex, and when we speak of paediatric cardiac procedures, it gets more critical. We have performed an open heart surgery on a four-hour-old baby. We are setting new clinical benchmarks every time we conduct a procedure."

The hospital felicitated Rotary International president-elect Mark Maloney at the event.
