The role of plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery in our lives.

cosmetic surgeon

Cosmetic surgery is the modification of certain parts of our body for beautification purpose only. It helps the person to adulterate and modify perfectly healthy body parts to suit his or her needs or to increment the physical beauty or to decrement any physical pain because of certain body parts. Cosmetic surgery or aesthetic surgery is an important part of plastic surgery. Unlike cosmetic surgery, plastic surgery involves the restoration of deformations, malformations or damaged body parts to the usual and normal form.

Both, plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery has been on the rise in recent years due to many people becoming too much conscious of their selves and their beauty. Their bodily beauty becomes their priority. They even resort to cosmetic surgery when signs of ageing appear on their body. In plastic surgery, more often than not, deformations of the body parts and injuries such as burns or deep cuts are treated and altered and the normal body is restored. This is carried out mainly by skin grafting, a surgical procedure by means of which skin tissue is transferred to the desired location of the body. When the skin is taking from a human being, it is either called autograft (if the donor and recipient is the same), or allograph (when the donor and the recipient are not the same individual). But when it is taken from a creature of a different species, for example a pig, the transplantation technique is termed as xenograft.

We can thus see the futuristic advancements which have been made and which are still moving forward on their way to perfection. Undoubtedly, plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery have removed the problems of, and satisfied millions of individuals all over the globe. By- Rounak Bose

Toxicology-Determining dosage of ‘Poison’

toxicologist in delhiThere is a famous quotation prevalent among the masses-“The dose makes the poison”. It implies that everything in this world is poisonous in its own right and the only thing which makes a substance more or less poisonous is the amount of intake. Even the medicine used to treat a disease can act as poison if not taken in appropriate dose. The question here is-“Who decides the appropriate amount for a substance so that it is not poisonous”? The answer to this question lies in the field of medical science.

Toxicology is a branch of chemistry, biology and medicine which studies the adverse effects of chemicals on the living organisms. It studies the relationship between the dose of a particular chemical and the effect it has on the body of the subject. Based on the results of these studies, toxicologists determine the right amount of a chemical to be used for useful purposes.

Besides doses, a number of other factors like age, sex, species, health and environment play a major role in determining chemical toxicity. Tests to determine toxicity have developed over time and from testing these doses on poor animals, we have reached a stage when all the work is done on the computer with help of advanced simulation techniques.

Job of a Toxicologist is more research oriented the results of which are useful for future experiments. The compensation of this job depends upon schooling and specialization but all things assured, it has huge scope in many fields provided the person is enthusiastic with willingness to learn.

To decide what to do and when to do and how to do and why to do, the perks of being a pharmacologist!

    clinical Pharmacologist in Delhi

A Clinical Pharmacologist is a Medical Professional who has specialized training in studying the various effects of a drug on our body. They usually hold a M.D. or a PhD degree in Pharmacology.They undergo special training under expert guidance, in formulating new drugs, their pre-clinical & clinical trials, index assigning and preparing the antidote for the same drug. Clinical Pharmacology can be divided into two spate sections:

1) One, who deals with formulation.

2) Other one, who deals with its testing and safety index.

Clinical Pharmacology has become one of the major medical branch in Delhi. One reason for this is, an increased demand of the drugs due to the ever increasing spread of diseases and health related ailments.In Delhi, a pharmacologist not only assigns a safety value to a drug, but also studies the all possible adverse effects, and their management as well. This even includes preparation & testing of the Anti-Dote.

When a famous clinical pharmacologist was interviewed about his point on this field, “Being a clinical pharmacologist and working in a lab is similar to drive a racing car on a terrain. It’s fun, it’s thrilling, but at the same time, dangerous. Studying about the drugs, their effects and their mechanisms, all are very fascinating. However, an inch of faulty formulation, makes the whole drug lethal” By- Dt. Trishala Chopra

If a stitch in time saves nine, a stitch by an orthopedic saves 99!

Orthopaedics in Delhi

Orthopedics is the branch of Surgical Medicine that deals with management of Soft & Hard Connective Tissues of the human body, those being Long Bones, Joints, and Muscles & Ligaments.This branch of surgery involves use of various techniques in comprehensively managing the conditions. Most commonly encountered conditions in Delhi are:

1.) Knee Osteo-Arthritis

2.) Knee Rheumatoid-Arthritis

3.) Ligament Tear

4.) Shoulder Joint Peri-Arthritis

5.) Shoulder Joint Capsular Adhesion

6.) Lumbar Spondylosis

7.) Cervical Spondylosis

8.) Fusing of vertebrae (Ankylosing Spondylosis)

9.) Management of Joint Dislocations

The technique of managing entirely depends on the condition of the part, and not on the type of injury i.e. Acute or Chronic.Eg: If a patient reports an injury due to fall, the damaged part will be inspected, and depending on that parameters, the management will either be Conservative (Time-Based Healing) Or based on surgical implants.Usually following extensive degenerative changes in joints, such as Osteo-porosis, Osteo-Petrosis, Osteo-Arthritis or Rheumatoid-Arthritis, the joint’s condition becomes so deteriorated that the orthopedic has no option, but to surgically replace it. This is usually common, following a case of Total Hip Replacement.

Due to the High-Tech Medico Facilities in our capital New Delhi, these critical surgeries have now become a usual encounter. An average no. of orthopedic surgeries in Delhi ranges from 35-42 per day!This shows that a lot many cases are being surgically managed, rather than the time based conservative management.Post-Operative management forms an important aspect of the treatment in orthopedics. This is usually handled by a Physio-Therapist.

Neonatology- Care at Birth

newbornLife is a gift by god to mankind. It is most disheartening to see one of our loved ones depart this world. What is more damning is if that someone was still young who had so much to offer. When people die in their 30’s, it is said that the person ‘died young’. What of the numerous infants who lost their lives even before they could start living it? Sadly this was the situation faced by the world in 1860’s when the infant mortality rate was on a high and corrective means were tough to come by because the body of an infant is very much prone to infections.

It was in these circumstances that a sub specialty to pediatrics, a Children Specialty, was introduced which was named neonatology. Neonatology dealt with the medical care of newborns and infants. Slowly this became a widespread branch due to the sheer number of complexities the process of childbirth is prone to. From premature birth to growth problems, this branch deals with every aspect of newborn sickness. Primarily a hospital based specialty, most of the care is given in intensive care units.

Neonatology has had a major hand in decreasing the mortality rate of infants throughout the world. Its impact has been such that it is difficult to produce it in words. Just the fact that neonatologists are responsible for giving the life to a sick infant is magical enough to make this job such a beautiful prospect. By- Vatsal Gupta

Old wine in a new bottle- clinical pathology

Clinical Pathologist in Delhi

Specialised medical personnel governing almost all of the unique aspects of the path-labs are termed in general as Clinical Pathologists. Under this umbrella fall various laboratories, blood banks, and clinics for various aspects of the wide branches of pathology. And all this falls under what is known as Clinical pathology.This is further divided into stems of the medicinal body- including clinical, anatomical pathology, hematology, hematopathology, microbiology and blood banking. More enhanced technologies are developing, entailing proteomics, molecular diagnostics, etc. Most of these terms however, are overlapping aspects. Many areas are common to the varied aspects.

That branch of clinical pathology that is by far concerned with the diagnosis and testing offluids from an individual’s body, is known as clinical chemistry. Then, there is clinical hematology, the umbrella term used to denote all aspects of blood-banking. Hematopatholgy and microbiology all fall under the same category too. Often, pathologists, including clinical pathologists, practice both, anatomical and clinical pathology, which is sometimes broadly known as general or generalised pathology.

The study of samples in clinical pathology can fall under two big headings: macroscopic and microscopic, that is to the lay man, that which can be seen with the naked unaided eye, and that which cannot. The direct visual examination and assessment of the given or obtained sample, which may be a liquid, is the primary and usually most significant indication for the researcher or the doctor involved. The characteristics of the liquid, also help to ascertain the previously obtained analytical assumptions and conclusions.

It is important to note that even though clinical pathology has been around for a fairly long time, yet it has loads to develop and broaden. They undergo monthly, weekly, even daily maintenances to make sure that they perform to their optimum level and that they are as efficient as the concept was meant to be when it was first developed.
