Centred on health
It’s the most important reproductive organ in a woman’s body and yet,most women are not just shy,but positively terrified of discussing any health problems related to breasts. In an effort which could help reverse this trend,city-based Oyster & Pearl (O&P) Hospital,a mother and childcare hospital,recently launched their comprehensive Breast Care Centre (BCC). BCC is a one-stop destination to tackle all breast-related problems,with state-of-the-art equipment and an eminent panel of experts. The unique initiative has been taken by Dr Avinash Phadnis,founder director of O&P,and his team comprising Dr Neena Sathe,Dr Vikas Pai,Dr Anand Koppikar,Dr Shekhar Kulkarni,Dr Parag Sahasrabuddhe,Dr Ashish Davalbhakt,Dr Himani Tapasvi and Dr Asmita Potdar. As per a survey conducted by O&P,the incidence of breast cancer is on a rise in India,as well as all over the world. “Breast cancer is the prime cancer killer in women. As cancer cannot be prevented,early diagnosis is the key towards improving survival. Mammography is a very sensitive screening tool to diagnose breast cancer at a very early stage,” explains Dr Avinash Phadnis. All types of surgeries,from lumpectomy to radical and modified radical mastectomy,FNAC,excisional biopsies are conducted at O&P. Other surgeries and corrections provided for at the hospital are – cosmetic breast surgeries,including implants,breast size reductions and augmentation. To promote breast feeding and give appropriate advice,there’s also a ‘lactation cell’ at O&P. “By dedicating a separate clinic to breast care at O&P,we hope women will not shy away from their problems and seek help at the earliest,” sums up Dr Phadnis.
