HAND TRANSPLANT

Certificate for Hand Transplant

The Department of Plastic Surgery at KEM Hospital has recently been granted the certificate to carry out Hand transplants.

We are now looking to provide the benefit of our expertise to the selected patients.

As this is a rarely performed procedure, with only one centre in our country (Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences  at Kochi) having done 3 hand transplants till now, people who could benefit from this procedure are still not aware about it.

There could be many double hand amputees living a difficult life in the interiors of our state / country.

We would like to create public awareness about this category of transplants from point of view of recipients as well as donors.

Dr CJT Pinto
(7.10.16-9.9.1970)
“It is one of the lessons of history of science that each age steps on the shoulders of the ages which have gone before. The value of each age is not its own, but is in part, in large part, a debt of its forerunners”

– Michael Forrester

The Beginning

The Plastic Surgery Department at Seth G.S.Medical College and K.E.M.Hospital was inaugurated on December 1961 on the initiative of Dr. C.J.T. Pinto, the active support of Dr. S.V.Joglekar, the then Dean and the participation of Mr. Eric Peet of Oxford who was actively involved during the first three months of its existence and for a month each during the next two years. Dr. AnantaPuranik and Dr. DeoduttBendre were the first Surgical Registrar and House Surgeon respectively. We had about 30 dedicated beds and a dedicated operation theatre. The last was a gracious gesture of Dr. H. N. Dastur, the then Professor and Head of the Department of Neurosurgery. The OT was shared between the two departments at this stage, but as soon as the Neurosurgery OT Complex was commissioned, we were vested with the exclusive use of this OT complex.

The OT Complex

The OT complex occupies the centre of our department and our growth has been centered around it. The large window occupying its northern wall provides a soothing background of greenery and of bird activity. Two decades later the theatre was renovated and air-conditioned. From the very inception, we were well equipped. We obtained an electric dermatome in 1965 and we were the first to have a flash sterilizer and an operating microscope and power instruments for craniofacial surgery.

The Building Of A Team

In April 1962, less than four months after its inception, Dr. Goleria joined the unit as Honorary Assistant Professor. On the same day on which Dr Goleria joined, Dr. MrsDivekar, with experience in Plastic Surgery Anaesthesia, joined our OT and remained with us as a dedicated anaesthetist for years to come. Sister Solomon, trained abroad in Plastic Surgery, assumed the charge of our OT from its very inception. A few years later Mrs. Sheth, who not only had the skills of a dedicated Speech Therapist but also a special concern for our Cleft patients, joined us. Dr C.V.Mehendale, after a long stint in UK joined our department, as a ‘Pool Officer’ in 1966 and after a short while was absorbed in the Faculty.

 

Individuals, Leadership And Contributions

 

Dr. Charles J. T. Pinto

The speed and the methodical manner of the establishment of this department, speak volumes for the vision, dedication and tenacity of its founder. Dr. Pinto was a kind person, a compassionate human being, a loyal friend and an ever-willing fighter for justice. He was widely loved and respected. His memory lives not only in the department that he founded, but also in the Dr. Charles Pinto Centre dedicated to the treatment of Cleft lip and palate, founded by Dr. HirjiAdenwalla at Trichur, Kerala and in the CME programme of the Association of Plastic Surgeons of India which was dedicated to him years after he passed away. He had an abiding interest in the management of cleft lip and palate. The workload of clefts was heavy. Following cleft lip repair, to ensure timely repair of the palate and to cope with non-compliance they began doing both lip and palate simultaneously. Dr. Pinto using the golf terminology called this a ‘Hole-in-one Repair’, a concept that became dear to the heart of his successor. Along with Dr.Peet he described a procedure for urethroplasty in Hypospadias which was widely used in the department till early seventies. Realizing the importance of exposure to trauma management in the training of a Plastic Surgeon, the management of hand and maxillofacial trauma was brought within the purview of our department in 1965.

Dr. Pinto’s love for the department was unlimited. He passed away on 9th September 1970 , at the age of 54 – as he would have wished – in harness and within the department, soon after completing an operation.

Dr. Kuldip Singh Goleria (Prof and Head 1970 to 1989)

Shortly after Dr.Pinto’s death the mantle of heading the department fell on Dr. Goleria. Dr. Goleria’s interest in the ‘Hole-in-one repair’ of cleft lip and palate has been an abiding interest for over 40 years. In the initial stages it was the socio-economic need. Today it is the dictate of the local morbid anatomy. In 1980, part of the plastic surgery ward was converted to a 12-bedded Burns Unit for adult female patients with or below 50% burns. The aim was to do early grafting so as to prevent the development of deformities and contractures in females. This is the only plastic surgery department in BMC to have a Burns unit attached to it. The work of Tessier on Craniofacial surgery witnessed at the 5th IPRS had aroused a desire to establish this specialty in the department. The advent of craniofacial surgery in 1983 – even then, a pioneering venture as far as our country was concerned was possible with the co-operation of the departments of Neurosurgery, Anesthesiology and Paediatric Surgery.

Dr. Chintamani V. Mehendale

Dr. Mehendale’s association with our department had spanned two decades, when he retired in 1986. Essentially, an individualist, he was a dedicated personality, intense in whatever he did and totally devoted to the welfare of the patients under his care. Improvisation and a quest for technical perfection were inbuilt in his personality. Endowed with a scientific mind and a fund of scientific knowledge, his inputs were wide ranging, from creating awareness of the requirements of Medical photography to the development of Surgical Instrumentation. He devised a collapsible vaginal mould for Vaginoplasty both for intra-operative and post-operative use. He also developed a “harness” for facial fractures, a pencil wire twister for jaw wiring, a needle holder for palate repair, a dynamic jaw exerciser, an adjustable skin grafting board and a blade guard. He mastered and developed the art of making facial moulages and photography. His interest in the Indian classical music and his knowledge of the physics of sound production was unique and manifested itself in developing “Anil Vadyam” a new musical instrument.

Dr. Suresh R. Tambwekar

Dr.Tambwekar’s interest in micro-vascular surgery precipitated the acquisition of an operating microscope. Re-plantations and free-flaps began to appear on our operation list in increasing numbers. Dr. Tambwekar is one of the pioneers of Microvascular surgery in India and he has also been the leading force in the establishment of an organised training program at the Ethicon Institute which attracts trainees from all over the country. A visit to China aroused his interest in the management of filarial lymphedema. Under his leadership the ovens used to provide the treatment in China were evolved into special chambers for providing heat therapy. In intractable cases, MRI venography led him to observe perivenous fibrosis in some cases. These improved after venolysis. A joint study was carried out by Dr. Tambwekar with Professor Edwin Turkof of Vienna , on the identification of the level of nerve blocks in Leprosy (for the purposes of selecting the site for nerve decompression) by the use of intra-operative evoked potential studies.

Dr. Roshani E. Rana (Prof and Head 1989 to 2006)

Dr. Rana, an alumnus of this institution, had joined the department as a postgraduate student in 1976. After her post-graduation she continued in the department as a Lecturer, and in 1989, on the retirement of Dr. Goleria assumed the responsibilities of Professor and Head of the department. Her interest in the treatment of vascular malformations has been enriched by the support of an excellent interventional radiology department. Pre-operative embolization of vascular malformations of head and face has made surgery almost bloodless. Availability of fibre-optic bronchoscope has enormously helped the work on Temporo-mandibular joint ankylosis. The covering of the new articular surfaces with fascia lata on either side after release of ankylosis has made the post-operative course pain free. The department continues to attract patients from other parts of India for the management of Mullerian agenesis and other intersex problems.

Dr. Vinita Puri (Prof and Head since 2008)

Dr. Vinita Puri, an alumnus of LTMC and JJ group of Hospitals, joined the department as Lecturer in 1996. After the retirement of Dr. R.E.Rana in 2006, the department did not have a designated head. But the responsibilities of running the department were jointly managed by Dr. Vinita Puri and Dr. Amresh.S. Baliarsing who were both then Associate professors. A gifted surgeon, Dr. Puri pursued her interests in Cleft surgery, Hand Surgery ,management of Vascular Malformations and Maxillofacial surgery and has set a benchmark in these fields with numerous indexed publications and presentations in conferences . Dr. Baliarsing concentrated his efforts in Microvascular surgery and has gained formidable reputation in this field. They jointly conducted the Cadaveric flap dissection course in 2006 and 2007 which was attended by plastic surgeons from all over the country. Dr. Vinita Puri assumed the mantle of Professor and Head of the department in Oct 2008 and is taking the department to new heights in step with progressing times. She conceptualized and began the Aesthetic CME series, under the purview of which was conducted an invited lecture and workshop on Botox, fillers and Live operative Liposuction workshop in July 2009. Dr. Puri has also commenced the Hand clinic in coalition with the occupational therapists and physiotherapists and Maxillofacial follow up clinic to improve patient care. The department is undergoing civil renovation and will soon have state of the art inpatient wards, Ot complex and a Microvascular animal lab. Dr. Puri’s dedication to patient care, empathy towards patient suffering, sincerity and openness to new ideas and innovations make her popular with peers and students alike.

  •  Aesthetic CME Series – 4thLive operative Workshop – on hair restoration  30th June  2013

The Department of Plastic surgery conducted a Live operative workshop on hair restoration  on 30th June. This was the fourth of a series of workshops to be held as part of the Aesthetic CME series the department conducts yearly. Dr.Rajesh Rajput and Dr.SandeepSattur, renowned Aesthetic and hair transplant surgeons, demonstrated their  skills acquired from years of experience. A total of two patients were operated on, dealing withpatient selection, decision making and planning,various techniques of hair extraction,  and grafting,. The workshop was attended by around hundred participants (residents and consultants), which was a creditable number for any regional workshop. The workshop organizers were appreciated by one and all for the cases selected, comprehensive subject coverage, smooth conduct of surgeries in tandem on two operative tables, good moderation, incisive and probing discussions, and good audiovisual coverage. All participants, junior and senior consultants, have registered encouraging comments in their feedback stating that they have benefited immensely by the workshop. The department received utmost co-operation from the Anesthesia team under Dr.ShwetaSalgaonkar, Support staff of M.L.T Hall, Nursing staff, Security staff and Class IV workers. We look forward to conduct similar workshops in the future as part of this aesthetic series and make it a tradition in our department. We feel we achieved our objective of quenching our academic thirst and making the common man aware of the availability of Aesthetic surgery in Municipal hospitals.
