Dr. P. Mohan Rao, who had prior filled in as the executive of therapeutic administrations at HAL, has a place with the old school which had confidence in keeping up a decent affinity with the patients and maintaining exclusive requirements of restorative morals. While in the administration he used to serve the poor for nothing and proceeded with it even after his retirement. He was instrumental in setting up MVJ College and Hospital in Hoskote in 2001 and now it takes into account 500 towns. Dr. Rao was as of late respected with the Rajyotsava grant.
He regrets that the relationship that once existed among specialists and patients has assumed a lower priority and the idea of the family doctor is currently relatively wiped out. “Notwithstanding for a hack today a patient searches out an authority. Prior specialists had an individual compatibility with their patients. This relationship must resume,” says Dr. P Mohan Rao, a prominent cardiologist of the city.
Be that as it may, at that point he has a place with the old school of specialists, having filled in as the Chief of Medical Services at Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) until his retirement in 1998. He takes note of that even therapeutic courses today focus more on determination and treatment and lay little accentuation on restorative morals. Not exclusively is Dr Rao outdated in his perspectives, yet in addition accepts unequivocally in rehearsing significant prescription, helping poor people and penniless.
Indeed, even while he was with the HAL, his work took him to its embraced town, Kagadassa pura. “Our specialists visited the town and treated the poor for nothing. A shelter with 120 youngsters was received as well and this went ahead till I resigned,” he reviews.
His energy to serve the poor proceeded even after his retirement and he acknowledged the offer of the Venkatesha Education Society to begin a healing center and therapeutic school in a country zone.
In 2001, the MVJ College and Hospital was appointed in Hoskote and today takes into account 500 towns. Other than the normal registration that is free, the healing facility gives free breakfast to the inpatients.
“I considered this to be a chance to serve the towns of our nation. As our point was to serve the poor we didn’t have unique wards as their patients would have gotten more consideration from the medical attendants than those in the general ward. Likewise, the extraordinary registration like MRI are done at one-fourth of the market cost,” says Dr. Rao.
Since 2001, the clinic has treated 49 lakh outpatients, 4.5 lakh inpatients, and did 1.2 lakh medical procedures other than sorting out screening camps around Hoskote that have effectively treated more than 75,000 patients.
Dr. Rao uncovers that diabetes and hypertension are two of the greatest executioners in rustic territories. “We screened towns and found that seven to eight percent of the general population with diabetes and hypertension had no clue they had them. On the off chance that they are recognized early, heart and kidney harm can be maintained a strategic distance from. The greatest test here is making mindfulness,” he clarifies.
One of his incredible motivations has been his dad who filled in as a specialist in World War II. “Like dad like the child, my mom dependably said and this directed me towards drug,” he recognizes.
He was likewise roused by what otherworldly master, the late Sri Sathya Sai Baba once said at a World Cardiology Meet where Dr. Rao got the opportunity to be his translator. “Baba said that the hands that treat the poor are a thousand times superior to the lips that ask. This roused me to take up social work,” Dr Rao thinks back.
Regretting the taking off medicinal costs that have put treatment out of the range of a huge area of the populace today, he says the main arrangement lies in laying more accentuation on counteractive action of maladies.
Faulting the commercialization of medicinal consideration somewhat on the precarious ascent in the expense of restorative courses, he says it affects the mind of youthful therapeutic alumni, who at that point need to begin profiting, setting the worries of provincial India aside for later.
“Be that as it may, at that point medicinal universities also don’t have incredible financing from the administration and ideal from buy of land to set up a healing facility, everything is exorbitant,” he watches. While recognizing the pragmatic challenges that schools confront today, he trusts it is likewise essential to show medicinal understudies the delights of offering back to society and serving poor people.
Thinking about his long stretches of work in the field of prescription and his certifiable worry for society, Dr Rao was granted the Kannada Rajyotsava grant in November. In any case, to specialists of his kind, the reward unmistakably lies in the delights of the calling itself, helping and treating individuals, particularly the individuals who are most in need in the towns of India.
