So what's new, you may ask, in a doctor curing his patients? But here lies the difference. All these surgeries have been performed at minimal cost under the supervision of Dr Kane, who is an orthopedic surgeon practicing in the UK. Though staying abroad and helming a flourishing practice, Dr Kane has chosen not to ignore the call of his native town, Nagpur. His ardent desire to do something for the city lands him twice a year in Nagpur.
With thirty years of vast experience in surgery in the UK, Dr Kane has been conducting special surgeries in the city for the last 10 years at Golhar Spine Care, Ramdaspeth. Talking to 'The Hitavada', Dr Kane said, “I am glad to serve my city through my profession. It gives me joy and makes me feel fulfilled in every respect.”
During his philanthropic visits, Dr Kane does not charge consultation fee. Patients just have to pay the cost of the equipment needed for the corrective surgery. This reduces the cost of the surgery to a great extent, making it affordable for the needy.
Talking about the current scenario in medical field, Dr Kane said, “It may be the UK or India but an honest effort by doctors to earn trust of patients is needed. I strongly abhor commercialisation of medicine as it is also against the ethics of the profession.”
Dr Kane added, “I believe in transparent communication with patient. I do not recommend surgery to those who do not need it. I have seen people spending a lot of money on a curable disease just because of improper communication from both sides. I strongly feel that every doctor should educate the patient to build up confidence. This will make the healing process simpler.”
Looking at the increasing number of replacement surgeries, Dr Kane says that changing lifestyle and approach towards life matters a lot. “Everyone is aware of the fact that regular exercise and proper diet is necessary for keeping fit. But everyone of us also should learn to differentiate a fine line between 'need' and 'greed', which I feel is the mantra for a successful professional and personal life too.”
