A General Physician is a Medical Graduate having a MBBS (Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery) Degree. This is a UG (Under-Graduate) degree awarded to students from medical universities who enter medical profession, completing a given tenure. Physician is well acclaimed with all the normal structure and functioning (i.e. Physiology) of almost all systems of the body (Or at least some knowledge about everything)

Generally, Physicians are the first resort, from which everyone seek help in acute conditions. In a Place like Mumbai, most of us visit a doctor with ailments such as Fever, Headache, Rash, an Injury, Any Skin Condition etc.A Physician may use various adjuncts to proceed his/her treatment. Of these, Prescription of drugs is mostly used.

Drugs such as Mild-to-Moderate Aspirin, Paracetamol i.e. NSAID (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs), Analgesics are used for management of routine cases.For cases other than the ones encountered in routine, prescription is modified.For Example, A Physician starts the treatment of a patient with Hyper-Tension, with BETA Blockers, and then the dose is “tailored” depending on the patient’s requirement.

Here, Drug Dosage is entirely and purely based on diagnosis done by the Physician, which almost always depends on proper knowledge and experience, as many of the patient’s activities might hamper the effects of drugs on the body (i.e. Pharmacokinetics as well as Pharmacodynamics)Usually in today’s scenario, Nobody settles down with a single MBBS Degree these days.Almost every graduate seeks further specialization in fields of their interest.As per Medical Profession Report, 2015, following fields are the most chosen:
Masters In Surgery
Oncology
Cardiology
Pulmonology
Orthopaedics
Obstetrics & Gynecology

Independence Day of India and advancements in healthcare systems.

Independence

Steve Harvey had once said that he was no doctor. He was just a common man with much more common sense than other common men. A professional who practices medicine is called a physician or a medical doctor. He is concerned with promoting, maintaining and restoring human health by means of the study, diagnosis and the treatment of any physical or mental discomfort such as disease, injury or other impairments.

Independent India has always been proud to be a nation, which is leading in the world in the terms of good physicians and good quality medical care. And, one of the rapidly growing metropolises that is contributing heartily to this success is India. Situated near the national capital, instead of being overshadowed by the grandeur of Delhi, it is on its way to outshine all other cities. Producing a brilliant arsenal of doctors, it is advancing at a great rate, accompanied no doubt by its decision to accept new methodologies and adopt futuristic technologies to make health-care services efficient and affordable on a wide scale.

Most of the doctors practicing and residing in India, have graduated from top-class institutes with flying colours. This degree qualifies the medical practitioners to become licensed or registered under the laws of the State and India is proud to register them as their jewels.

Those physicians in India are the best who are the most ingenuous inspirers of hope. The roles of a clown and that of a doctor are the same – to elevate the possible and to relieve suffering. After all, the good physician is the one who treats the disease. While the great physician is the one who treats the patient who has the disease. Independent India has sure enough, reached the near-zenith of futuristic and advanced healthcare in the world. By- Rounak Bose

Best Doctors..Doctors are a boon to this world

Best Doctors

We all have some kind of favourites is everything like in food, place etc. Family Practitioner is someone who is the favourite doctor for a family and that doctor is the first one to be informed and taken his advice is someone happens to be sick.

Now what is so special or what is so different about a family practitioner and a specialist doctors? Well specialist doctor is someone who is specialised in only a certain organ like eyes or lungs or heart but family practitioner is a kind of all-rounder who is specialised of all the organs and all the diseases. They help in diagnosing the disease as well as the medications and necessary steps ahead with the preventive measurements etc.

The education of a Family Practitioner is basic like first 2 years while schooling they have to learn in physics, chemistry and biology. Then 3 more years of intense training which includes training of paediatrics, surgery, etc. Graduates are required to pass Unites States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLS).

Family Practitioner can be found in any of the hospitals but they are someone who has been joined to a family from many years. They know the patients very well and hence it becomes very busy to deal with it as they know your past and they can wor very well according to that.

Never lose hope, miracles do happen

Oncologist in Delhi

What is the most common word that you have heard whenever cancer comes into picture? Its chemotherapy! Everyone assumes that if the person has cancer, he has to go for chemotherapy. No it’s not like that. Chemotherapy treatment will be given to the person only if he needs it. It depends on the type of cancer, span of cancer and stage of cancer. All these three play a very important role in deciding the chemotherapy sessions. If the person has end stage cancer and there are no chances of survival at all, then chemotherapy is avoided. The cancer is left untouched.

But the cancer is in early stages and survival chances are higher only than chemotherapy is advised. What exactly is chemotherapy? It is basically a treatment which includes chemical drugs. It can either be in the form of a capsule or a tablet or it can be given using a catheter. Chemotherapy does have side effects and people start feeling these side effects within days of their chemotherapy session. Most common side effect which is seen is hair loss. With every chemotherapy session, hair loss increases and then time comes when the person has lost all his hair.

It is not an easy thing to handle, loss of self-confidence is the worst thing that happens. Time, attention, love and care is what it takes to add days to a cancer patient’s life. Handling this disease is not easy, help them do it! Research says that cancer patients who are happy and in a positive environment recover faster than ones who stay alone in a depressing surrounding! Happiness is the key to faster recovery! By- Dt. Trishala Chopra

“National Doctors day”

blogImageDoctorDayThe National Doctors day is observed on 1 July in India to honour the contributions of Dr. Bidhan Chandra Roy, former West Bengal Chief Minister who was also a physician. Born in 1882, the legendary physician, who was also honoured with the Bharat Ratna in 1961, died on his birthday in 1962.

Every child has a dream to become a doctor when they grow at least at some phase of their lives. I did. The game itself amuses people or rather children. The fact that someone walks in your door one fine day and gives up his entire medical health to you, feels important, even though becoming one isn’t easy. I don’t think the hard work ever fades out or one can ever relax in this profession. Even if you’re 50 and a very established doctor, you need to keep track of the new technical methods and also the competition is immense in this profession. Even though some do misuse this privilege of being the medical officer, some how being an honest doctor is still one of the most sought after jobs in the world. I’ll give you five reasons to explain why?

1) You get to work with people. If you like people around you who depend on you at certain levels or who you could learn from at almost every step, studying medicine is your thing.

2) Team work is very important when one’s studying in a medical school. Even when one becomes a big doctor, team work never goes out of fashion. The doctor needs to be in constant coordination with his team mates or nurses or even the patients in some situations.

3) No other job gives you as much respect as being a doctor or a teacher. Like a teacher imparts the gift of life through education, doctors literally give you life at times. One can trust on the doctor with his/her eyes closed and mostly, a doctor doesn’t fail you.

4) The field of the medical world is huge. Studying medical doesn’t only mean that one is going to practice or do surgeries. You could teach, do research upon medical related areas and so much more.

5) Doctors will never go out of fashion or the market. No matter which economic stage the world goes through, doctors will always be needed. Your job will be safe till you plan to leave it. The success rate is upon you though.

So you see, even though getting into a good medical school and carrying the pressure throughout is difficult, the pros are worth risking things for.

It’s time to different between a general pain and a pain caused by a cyst

Kidney SpecialistHave you ever felt some pain in your lower body or abdominal region? If it lasts for a day or two, it is fine but if he pain is persistent then it’s time to get yourself checked. There are n- number of causes for the pain and one of them could be kidney cysts. Yes, this is rare but it does happen. What are cysts? They are fluid filled sacs and many cysts together are called as poly cysts. These cysts which are formed in the kidney is usually non-cancerous but it does causes a lot of pain! No patient will visit a kidney specialist first.

He will visit a general physician and if the physician feels that there is something wrong with the body he will ask the patient to consult a kidney specialist. Once you do, he will check all possible symptoms of the pain and if he feels anything about the cysts he will ask the patient to get his sonography done and once he has a clear picture, he will initiate the treatment for the same.

The treatment as a whole for these cysts isn’t done but the complications attached to these cysts are generally managed. A person should be careful that he should not consume any anti-inflammatory medicine like ibuprofen or any other because it might worsen the case. A kidney specialist makes a list of do’s and don’ts for the patients to give them a healthier lifestyle! Such a boon to have excellent specialists! By: Dt. Trishala Chopra

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

Ophathalmology

Choosing a doctor who has done his/her specialization in eye care is an important health care decision. An ophthalmologist is a medical practitioner or an expert who specializes in vision and eye care. They have also received their training to perform eye exams and eye surgery. As an MBBS student they generally complete four years of college, four years of medical school, one year of internship, and a minimum of three years of hospital- based residency in ophthalmologist.

If your eyes are aerobicized and do not require medical or surgical treatment, the type of eye doctor you choose for a routine exam is a matter of personal preference.

Following are the reasons so as to when a person has to visit an ophthalmologist:

  1. Loss of vision or decreased vision in one or both the eyes.

  2. If you notice any sort of vision change such as sudden spots, flashes of light, lightning streaks, or jagged lines of light, wavy or watery vision, blurry faces, distortions, or wavy lines, haloes around lights, double vision.

  3. Field of vision changes such as shadows, curtain- like loss of vision, black spots.

  4. Changes in color vision.

There are many other changes you see in your eyes that shows an indication that it’s high time you must visit an ophthalmologist. Sometime when you wear glasses you observe cloudy vision and able to properly see the distant and nearby objects. Due to defect in eyes you see large black spots; it may lead to complete blindness if not treated properly. By – Medha Choudhary

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.
