Medicine has been associated with man since time immemorial. From Hippocrates and Apollo, the pioneers of this science, medicine has come a long way. From astute observations and clinical experiences to the diagnostic and therapeutic prowess of machines, many milestones in healthcare have been achieved. Test tube babies have been produced and animals have been cloned. The gift of life has been given to many, right from infants to the aged. This noble profession has always strived for just one cause – life without disability and pain and of course, Life itself.
