Doctors, just like any other professional, work hard to perform their duties. In fact, their work is a life-saver, and therefore, precious for people in society. In the month of April 2019 an interesting hereditary case of ASD is handled successfully by, Dr James Thomas and his team at D Y Patil Hospital, Nerul, Navi Mumbai. ASD is a defect in which A “hole” is there in the wall that separates the top two chambers of the heart. This defect allows oxygen-rich blood to leak into the oxygen-poor blood chambers in the heart. ASD is a defect in the septum between the heart’s two upper chambers (atria). In this Case Father Mr. Vithal has been operated recently in D Y Patil Hospital. His son had been operated 5 yrs back in D Y Patil Hospital when he was just one and half year old. Both are now leading a very healthy life. Dr James Thomas, a very senior CVTS surgeon, Former Vice Chancellor of DY Patil Deemed to be University and Current HOD and Principle adviser DY Patil Deemed to be University, carried out both these surgeries successfully. The entire family of Mr.Vithal is very satisfied with the operating procedure and the overall outcome of surgery. They have specially mentioned a very good opinion about their stay in hospital and overall facilities available at D Y Patil Hospital.
The life-saving deeds of doctors cannot be measured in terms of money. Gratitude towards them is shown by Mr. Vithal and his entire family by thanking them. Even a small thank you note received from a patient would make the doctor feel nice. Dr. Thomas and his teamwork is being acknowledged and appreciated by all the staff members, D Y Patil Management, Chancellor of DY Patil Deemed to be University- Dr. Vijay Patil Sir and First Lady D Y Patil Group-Ms Shivani Patil Madam.
