For some this will not be the first time that the Choithram Memorial Hospital will be offering free screening and treatment as in the past Management of the hospital has facilitated the arrival of visiting doctors from Germany and India on various occasions to render professional medical services, on a free of cost basis, to many from different walks of life.
This same opportunity has presented itself again as the Choithram Memorial Hospital will be organizing a free 2 day expert consultation commencing on the 11th April, 2022 to the 13th April 2022 at the hospital premises on Hill Station in Freetown.
This medium was reliably informed that renowned doctors and specialists in the persons of Dr. Ruchir Maheshwari, Principal Consultant, Urology and Dr. Munish Chaudhary, Senior Consultant, Orthopedics and Joint Replacement from Max Healthcare in India will be on the ground to screen and treat individuals from all walks of life for free. They will be treating individuals suffering from Urology and Orthopedics.
It must be noted that Urology is a part of health care that deals with diseases of the male and female urinary tract and includes the kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra. It also deals with the male organs that are able to make babies and include the penis, testes, scrotum, prostrate etc.
Orthopedics, on the other hand, is the branch of medicine dealing with the correction of deformities of bones or muscles.
However, it was made clear that for major cases diagnosed, during that period, treatment for such cases will be paid for on a discount basis and if surgery could not be done here then the patients will be referred to India. In the case of minor tests it was stated that such will be done free and for major ones like CT scanning, payment is required.
Max Healthcare is one of the leading healthcare networks in North India and will now be closer even during these challenging times of pandemics.
According to the Medical Superintendent of Choithram Memorial Hospital, Dr Gowrinath M. George, they are aware that it is not everyone in the country that is financially capable to travel to India for specialized treatment which is why they decided to bring experts in the country to offer their professional knowledge and services on a pro bono basis.
