The India Post, Chandigarh, 24th July : Mrs. Kaili, Age 60/F from Una came to OXFORD HOSPITAL with complaint of breathlessness & recurrent chest pain on exertion. This patient suffered from Heart attack one month back and presently was having severe angina.
Her ECG & Echocardiography was done which suggested that there is blockage of her heart blood vessels. Patient was advised for urgent coronary angiography which the attendants could barely afford. She was taken up for angiography at very discounted rate of Rs. 5000/-. Her Angiography revealed that there was 99% block of her heart artery.
This patient however was not able to afford angioplasty & Stenting of her artery which was essential to save her life.
Dr. Deepak Kaura of Oxford Hospital , Chandigarh came to her rescue by offering the patient free Angioplasty + Stenting of her blocked artery. This was done successfully within 15 minutes & patient was completely well there after.
This procedure normally would have cost the patient One Lac & Seventy Five Thousand. This is not for the first time that Dr. Deepak Kaura has helped needy & poor patients.
In the past also he did similar help to a Kulfi vendor who was suffering from heart attack and was father of five unmarried daughters. The procedure which was performed five years back has been of great success for the patient as he is doing completely well. He has been able to marry three of his daughters and is able to pursue his normal duties.
The attendants of Kaili Devi who underwent the procedure were extremely thankful & jubiliant & were full of praise for Dr. Kaura.
I helped this patient as this procedure was essential to save her life but patient was not able to afford it. This was just a soft human gesture to help the ailing mankind & to lend a helping hand to the society in my humble capacity shared by Dr. Kaura.
