Pune, 8th October 2022: “People hesitate to visit doctors as they are afraid of operations. Operation isn’t the only solution for all types of illnesses. People must take timely medical treatment before the illness complicates,” remarked noted orthopedic surgeon Dr Sunny Gugale from Sancheti Hospital.


“On account of World Arthritis Day on October 12, the World Health Organization (WHO) has conceived a theme – ‘don’t delay, connect today’. People are afraid of visiting doctors, hence the PM Shah Foundation has taken the right approach of taking patients to doctors using the route of a medical camp,” opined Dr Sunny Gugale.


Dr Gugale was speaking during a free arthritis redressal camp jointly organized by PM Shah Foundation, Vardhaman Pratishthan and Sancheti Hospital. Over 250 people benefited from the camp.


Dr Mahavir Dugad, who was also present at the camp, said that for the growth of bones, a balanced diet along with exercise and walking were essential factors.


“But due to lack of knowledge and superstitions, bones get weakened. To make people aware about health is the aim of such camps,” remarked Dr Dugad.


“Our organization aims to continue our work in healthcare,” said PM Shah Foundation’s Director Adv. Chetan Gandhi.


Special attendees for the health camp included noted surgeon from Sancheti Hospital Dr Sunny Gugale, Dr Mahavir Dugad, Dr Arpit Mutha, Dr Neel Sharma, General Manager Rahul Choubey and employees of Meyer pharmaceuticals and Pro Health Care firm.


To make the camp a resounding success, special work was done by members of PM Shah Foundation along with members of Swamini Mahila Mandal, Yuva Jagruti Mahila Mandal, Lions Club Mastermind Group, Mahavir Prathishthan, Dipshikha Mandal, Jain Women’s Club and Bharati Vidyapeeth Samaj Vigyan Kendra.


The camp was attended by Vardhanan Prathishthan’s Vilas Rathod, Jitubhai Tathed, Satish Kondhalkar, Nivedita Kondhalkar, R L Meher, Renuka Bhandari, Neeta Mehta, Deepti Shah, Rupal Tathed and Archana Lunavat
