Institute for Prostate Cancer to organize a free Consultation Camp


 Long lasting Backache???? - get your Prostate checked
Free check up camp from 25th Sep to 10th Oct 2018  


Pune, 21st Sept, 2018:  Prostate cancer is becoming the commonest cancer amongst men.  Statistics say that almost one in six men suffer from Prostate Cancer in their lifetime. When it comes to treating potentially serious conditions, early diagnosis is the key. Generally, the earlier you begin treatment for a condition, greater are your chances for complete recovery.

 Institute for Prostate Cancer (IPC) is organizing a free Consultation camp in Pune from 25th Sep to 10th Oct 2018.
IPC, having the best doctors from across India on their panel, provides the best treatments to cure cancer.

Dr Deshmukh Hrishikesh, Consultant Urologist, says, “Almost 60 % of prostate cancer patients consult a doctor in the advanced stage in contrast to the developed world where 80%-90% patients are diagnosed in the first stage itself.  Unfortunately in India diagnosis of this cancer is usually very late. Prostate cancer is slow and a silent killer. So it is imperative to create an awareness about it and catch it at an early stage where it can be cured from the roots.”

 IPC mainly focuses on these areas since the last 5 years. Trying to create awareness about prostate cancer in the society, it has so far reached up to more than 70000 men.

 Primary Symptoms:
·         Prostate enlarges with age leading to obstruction in urinary passage which results in symptoms like straining to pass urine, frequency, night time awakening for urine, poor flow, sense of incomplete evacuation
·         In the advanced stage cancer presents itself with symptoms of backache, bone pain, loss of appetite, weight loss.

To tackle the increasing rate of patients suffering from prostate cancer, it is advised to do regular screening with DRE and PSA and not to neglect any kind of back pain especially after 50 years of age.

If detected at an early stage, one should undergo a  biopsy. Ideally biopsy should be done by a trained urologist under TRUS(Trans rectal ultrasound) guidance. Minimum 12-14 cores of tissue should be sampled through various areas of prostate in a systematic way.
MRI is used in to target specific areas if required.

IPC has carried out 480 biopsies and more than 40 % are positive.
If diagnosed at early stage Prostate cancer can be completely cured.
One should get screened for prostate cancer at and above 50 years of age.

Approximately 90% of all prostate cancers are detected in the local and regional stages, so the cure rate is very high.
Nearly 100% of men diagnosed and treated at this stage will be disease-free after five years. However, prostate cancer is still a deadly disease.

So, don’t ignore your long lasting backache and get your prostate checked at IPC and continue to live life to the fullest.

Pune’s Dr. Gaurangi Shrawat crowned Mrs India – Empress of The Nation 2018

Pune’s renowned cosmetologist, Dr. Gaurangi Shrawat won the prestigious Mrs India – Empress of The Nation 2018 pageant, held on 9th September at Hyatt Pune, where 32 gorgeous women vied with each other for the coveted crown, amidst much glitter and glamour. She also bagged the title of Mrs Beautiful Skin, not surprisingly, considering skin care is her forte!

Dr. Gaurangi is the MD & Founder of Skinworks, the skin, hair and laser clinic in Salisbury Park, Pune. After her graduation from BVPMC, Pune in 2010, it was then time to branch out into a specialty. “I opted for Dermatology as not only did I find it fascinating and filled with potential but also because my stunning mother in her younger days owned a flourishing salon and groomed women in Meerut, and this was one of the inspiring factors for me. I have spent the last 3 years shaping my skills as a super-specialist. After finishing my Masters, I ventured into the field of Cosmetology”, smiles Gaurangi.


Speaking of her stupendous  success at winning the crown at the pageant, Dr.Gaurangi Shrawat admits it was one of those life changing events, which transformed the way she perceived the outside world. “Mrs. India pageant came along at a time when my focus was purely on my career, and am I grateful that it has not just got me instant name and fame, but also recognition as a leading cosmetologist. I must thank Nalini Dhir, Co-founder, Meraki Salon, who encouraged me to participate”.


It was an evening that saw 32 stunning women from different walks of life, from across the country, shedding all their inhibitions to not just compete with each other for the crown, but to also find their inner diva! “The magnitude of what I was getting into then dawned on me”, says Gaurangi.


“But undoubtedly, I owe my success to my two gurus, the two people who each one of us will remember for the rest of our lives, who took all of us under their wings and showed us the way – Anjana (an international pageant coach) and Karl Mascarenhas, MD of DIVA Pageants. These two fabulous people not only taught us how to portray our best attributes on stage and in life but also what couple goals we should be setting in life – the second bit was obviously not part of their plan! They are and will always be my mentors no matter where I go”.


The grooming that we received during the four days prior to the main event made Gaurangi  realize her potential. It was indeed the biggest Pageant of the year and was graced by celebrities and the who's who of Pune. The eminent jury comprised of Miss World 1999 Yukta Mookhey, Mrs. World 2001 Aditi Govitrikar, Famous Singer Shibani Kashyap, Mrs Tourism 2005 Sonal Chauhan and famous actor Sharhaan Singh along with Vinay Aranha, Sumit Kumar (GM Hyatt Pune), Mrs Sapna Anand Chhajed, Dr Akshaya Jain & Karl Mascarenhas. Popular TV actor, Aman Verma wowed the guests as he hosted the evening in his impeccable, charming style!


“The question asked at the finale is infact very close to my heart- Do you think it is necessary to have pageant coaching if you are serious about winning a pageant. My response was – Yes, it is indeed a very important part of a pageant as I can see a difference in me after the coaching that was provided by DIVA Pageants. Of course, all this has been possible with the unstinting support of my husband, Dr.Bhakti Sarangi and my loving family. It’s been a glorious journey so far and it has made me who I am today – strong, confident and a DIVA”, she sums up.

Doctors at Jupiter Hospital Perform Complex Open heart surgery on 10days old infant


A rare open heart surgery was performed on 10 days old baby boy with the aid of donation from Mukul Madhav Foundation, and Jupiter Foundation.
The surgery was performed by Dr. Abhijeet Naik, Paediatric Cardiac Surgeon, Dr. Rahul Saraf Paediatric Cardiologist, and managed in a dedicated paediatric ICU under the  guidance of Dr. Shrinivas Tambe, Consultant Neonatalogist and Paediatric Intensivist.   

Doctors at Jupiter Hospital performed an open heart surgery on a 10 days old blue baby weighing 2.1kg from Solapur, who was suffering from ‘pulmonary atresia’ with an intact ventricular septum, offering him a new lease of life. The infant was admitted to the hospital as an emergency case and surgery was performed on 1st August under “Hruday Sparsh”, an initiative by Jupiter Hospital.

Doctors had huge challenges at every step, as the child had no blood supply to the lungs and had to be kept alive by starting a prostaglandin infusion, and needed the surgery to open a blood supply to the lungs for survival. The kid underwent an open surgery where the block in the pathway of the right ventricle was removed and a transannular patch was placed to maintain the forward flow of the blood to the lungs.

“This condition of pulmonary atresia with an intact ventricular septum is seen less than 1% of all congenital heart diseases and its incidence 4.1 per 100,000 live births. This is a disease with varied presentation and management,” said Dr Abhijeet Naik, Paediatric Cardiac Surgeon, Jupiter Hospital.

The child was born in Solapur; at the time of birth his colour was blue and had difficulty while breathing hence was referred to one of the tertiary care NICU in the government set up in Pune. The child was then transferred to Jupiter Hospital from this NICU as Jupiter has a specialised paediatric cardiac surgical unit with a dedicated team of doctors. The paediatric cardiologist from Jupiter Hospital, Dr Rahul Saraf examined the child and performed an echocardiography to make a diagnosis for this child.

The surgery was performed by Dr Abhijeet Naik and his team including Dr Rahul Saraf Paediatric Cardiologist, and managed in a dedicated paediatric ICU under the guidance of Dr. Shrinivas Tambe.

The parents of the child are from Solapur and his father works as a welder. They are from a very poor socio-economic background so the surgery was performed under ‘Hruday Sparsh’, an initiative by Jupiter Hospital to spread awareness and providing medical and surgical treatment to the patient in the lower socio-economic background, so they can lead a healthy and happy life.
