walking with all my pain gone and was looking after my children in two days,' she said.
Harshavardini, 19, a biotechnology student, could not walk for three months because of excruciating knee pain. She had tripped and had a minor displacement in the knee area. MIOT doctors removed the displaced fragment through MIS and she could walk straight again.
Even babies can undergo keyhole surgery, the incisions on their bodies limited to less than two centimetres. The hospital gets patients from as many as 14 countries.
The first thing patients from the Middle East ask for after a knee or joint procedure at MIOT is, "where is the mosque, which is the east, can I kneel down to pray?" doctors here said.
'We know how it feels when a man cannot kneel down to pray,' Mohandas said.
'The cost of the surgery is just half that of a regular operation. Just one specialist and two nurses are required. With less of medicines, less of hospital stay, patients can be up and about within two days.'
'For a poor country like India, this is just what is needed, not oozing and festering wounds, people occupying hospital beds for months and long and expensive pos-operative care.'
The MIOT team has so far performed about 1,000 operations through MIS, and 25 of its department heads have been trained in countries like Germany and Switzerland.
