When Dr. Pralhad Savaikar started doing laparoscopic surgeries . there was hardly any awareness about this speciality in GOA . Most of the people were apprehensive and had many misconceptions.
And many patients were getting convinced against undergoing laparoscopic surgeries due to:
- Ignorance and fear
- High Cost
- Non availability of the facility in near vicinity
We at Savaikar Hospital and later on At MASC decided to change this -
We demonstrated that laparoscopic surgery can be performed at economic charges, sometimes much lower than conventional open surgeries,created awareness through various free surgical camps at rural area, and demonstrated that laparoscopic surgery is as safe as open surgery.
We have a mission to take Minimal access surgery(MAS) to masses. And a vision to make the best technique and technology in world to available everybody in society
