SPS Apollo Hos­pi­tals wel­comes the recog­ni­tion of the per­sonal and fam­ily sac­ri­fices that its doc­tors make on a daily ba­sis and the piv­otal role they play not only in pro­vid­ing qual­ity health care but in con­stantly im­prov­ing our health care de­liv­ery sys­tem. Doc­tors' Day like ev­ery year would serve as an op­por­tu­nity to ac­knowl­edge these ac­com­plish­ments. One of the largest cor­po­rate hos­pi­tals North of Delhi, SPS Apollo Hos­pi­tals has been set­ting stan­dards since its in­cep­tion on 28th March, 2005. It is the one of the first cor­po­rate hos­pi­tals to pro­vide comprehensive ter­tiary level care in the re­gion, cater­ing to the health­care needs of not only Pun­jab, but the neigh­bour­ing states of Hi­machal Pradesh, Jammu and Kash­mir and parts of Haryana and Ra­jasthan. Each year SPS Apollo Hos­pi­tals has added new spe­cial­i­ties and to­day stands tall as one of the largest and most comprehensive health­care fa­cil­i­ties north of Delhi. On the sheer ba­sis of itsstrong team of 170 med­i­cal pro­fes­sion­als, SPS Apollo Hos­pi­tals has been able to es­tab­lish clin­i­cal supremacy over the other hos­pi­tals in the re­gion and has be­come a des­ti­na­tion of choice for qual­ity health­care in the re­gion. SPS Apollo has one of the most em­i­nent panel of med­i­cal con­sul­tants, many of whom are lead­ers in their re­spec­tive med­i­cal fields. Not only have these con­sul­tants in­tro­duced the re­gion to the latest and best med­i­cal treat­ment and re­cent ad­vances in the med­i­cal world, they have con­stantly raised the bar for qual­ity health­care in the re­gion and have helped the hospi­tal man­age­ment to po­si­tion SPS Apollo Hos­pi­tals, as a qual­ity health­care des­ti­na­tion, in a re­gion where qual­ity is not given fore­most im­por­tance when it comes to mak­ing a choice of health­care provider. The hospi­tal has a long list of med­i­cal mile­stones and ac­com­plish­ments achieved. Amongst the many firsts to be per­formed by the SPS Apollo med­i­cal team in­clude, the first bariatric surgery in the re­gion, first ro­tat­ing plat­form knee re­place­ment, first mini in­ci­sion hip re­place­ment surgery and min­i­mally in­va­sive car­diac surgery, to name few. Renowned for pro­vid­ing qual­ity mother and child care in the re­gion, the hospi­tal has suc­cess­fully treated pre ma­ture ba­bies & has steadily gained rep­u­ta­tion for its high qual­ity pae­di­atric crit­i­cal care ser­vices. The clin­i­cal out­comes at SPS Apollo are reg­u­larly mon­i­tored and bench­marked against the best med­i­cal in­sti­tu­tions in the world through the Apollo Clin­i­cal Ex­cel­lence Model. As re­spon­si­ble cor­po­rate cit­i­zens, the doc­tors at SPS Apollo reg­u­larly par­tic­i­pate in med­i­cal camps, con­duct out­reach and out­sta­tion OPD's, health aware­ness and ed­u­ca­tional pro­grams. Apart from this they ac­tively par­tic­i­pate in life savers pro­grams, wherein Ba­sic Life Sup­port and First Aid Train­ings are pro­vided in schools, col­leges and to high­way pa­trol per­son­nel etc. Apart from this the SPS Apollo med­i­cal pro­fes­sion­als reg­u­larly con­nect with the med­i­cal fraternity through CME's, work­shops and med­i­cal news­let­ters & up­dates. The hospi­tal would soon be launch­ing var­i­ous cer­tifi­cate pro­grams & cour­ses as well. COR­REC­TION OF PRESBYOPIA BY CORNEAL IN­LAY Presbyopia is a ubiq­ui­tous prob­lem af­fect­ing all at around the age of 40 and its cor­rec­tion re­mains among the last chal­lenges of re­frac­tive surgery. Ac­cepted ap­proaches in­clude cor­rec­tion with glasses ( bi­fo­cal/ Pro­gres­sive), mul­ti­fo­cal lens im­plant or corneal pro­ce­dures, the lat­ter in­clud­ing mono­vi­sion LASIK, corneal mul­ti­fo­cal­ity in­duced by ex­cimer laser and corneal in­lay im­plan­ta­tion. Corneal in­lay pro­ce­dure is not new, be­ing thought about as early as in 1949 by Bar­ra­quer. The de­vel­op­ment of ma­te­ri­als with en­hanced bio­com­pat­i­bil­ity ad­vances in tech­nol­ogy such as fem­tosec­ond lasers, and a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of phys­i­ol­ogy and the wound - heal­ing re­sponse have al­lowed corneal in­lay tech­nol­ogy to ma­ture. The in­lay can be im­planted quickly, is re­versible and its presents fewer risks than other pro­ce­dures for presbyopia, such as LASIK or re­frac­tive lens ex­change. It is also not de­pen­dent on age re­lated re­frac­tive changes since Kamra has no re­frac­tive power ( it is based upon pin hole ef­fect) and there­fore re­quires no re­place­ment and hence is the­o­ret­i­cally a per­ma­nent pro­ce­dure. Kamra in­lay has emerged as the most ef­fec­tive so­lu­tion for presbyopia. 100% BLADE AD­VANCED FREE LASIK
