British Doctor of Indian Origin Saves Bihar Woman's Life

Patna: A botched up family planning operation would have claimed one more woman's life in Bihar if a visiting British doctor of Indian origin// wasn't there to perform a lifesaving surgery.

London-based doctor Ashok Vardhan's visit to Purnea district, 300 km from here, was a boon for Vijayanti Devi, who was comatose after a portion of her large intestine was cut out by mistake during a routine family planning operation.

"It was a very complicated operation and risky. I did what I can to save the life of a woman, that was all. It was my duty," said Vardhan.

Vijayanti Devi, a mother of six, was admitted to a government hospital in a critical condition early this week following referral from a sub-divisional hospital as her condition deteriorated due to the wrong surgery.

"We had lost all hope for her life because local doctors told us that it was not possible to operate on her again. Vardhan's trip was god's gift for us," said Vijayanti's husband Karu Singh, a landless labourer.

According to him, his wife was operated for family planning in a government hospital at Kasba-Raniganj. Her condition deteriorated a few hours after the operation when doctors detected their mistake. She was then shifted to a Purnea district hospital where doctors refused to operate on her in view of her critical condition.
