Kolkata, Mar 10 : Sunshine Hospitals has announced the launch of Sunshine Joint Replacement Clinic in Kolkata.
The clinic would be operational seven days of the week.
"This is the first step we have taken in Kolkata for addressing the needs of the patients from the eastern region who come to our 400-bed Super Specialty Hospital in Hyderabad each year for various kinds of joint replacements," said A V Gurava Reddy, Managing Director and Chief Joint Replacement Surgeon, Sunshine Hospitals, at the inauguration of the clinic.
Reddy is one of the leading orthopaedic surgeons in the world who performs 4000 plus joint replacement surgeries each year.
"Every fifth patient we treat is from the eastern region. The launch of the Sunshine Joint Replacement clinic in Kolkata will help reduce the cost of staying in Hyderabad for post surgery care since each week a top orthopaedic surgeon would be in Kolkata for helping the patients with follow up care," said Reddy.
"Besides catering to the needs of outpatients who are suffering from bone and joint pains, the clinic will also help scan patients who may be spared the trouble of visiting Hyderabad. Powered by state-of-the-art infrastructure and expert doctors, the clinic will be open from 9 am to 5 pm from Monday to Saturday," he said.
Sunshine Hospitals is planning to expand beyond Hyderabad and set up a 200 bed Rs 50-crore hospital in Bhubaneswar in the six months. Plans are on to follow it up with another super-specialty Sunshine Hospital in Kolkata.
The broad plan is to expand the capacity to 800-bed in the next two years, said Dr Reddy.
A second 200 bed super-specialty unit of Sunshine Hospitals would soon come up in Hyderabad.
