Hi-tech laparoscopic machine donated to PHC

To ensure better outcome of surgical procedures and replace existing ageing machine, RC Madras Midtown, RID 3232, provided a state-of-the-art laparoscopic device through a global grant project to the Public Health Centre at West Mambalam, Chennai.

DG (2019–20) G Chandramohan dedicated the machine worth around $50,000 in the presence of Club President Bhavesh Shah and Rotarians in a special event. The club also donated 5,000 sanitiser sachets on the occasion.

“The new laparoscopic machine will replace the 16-year-old device and with its high-definition clarity, will ensure better outcome of various procedures,” said Shah. Over 350 patients, mostly from the middle and lower middle-class communities, who undergo laparoscopic procedures at the PHC in a year will benefit from this high-end machine, he said. The club has roped in RCs North Fresno, RID 5230, and Cupertino, RID 5170, US, as global partners for this GG project to purchase the medical equipment.
