Today started late and was, so far event filled. I observed an excellent knee replacement operation again at Fortis Malar Hospital.
Later Dr, Nandkumar Sundaram and I held a press conference with the Fortis Malar Hospital Administration announcing the launch of our joint education and surgical training efforts. We will be sending Orthopaedic Fellows from India to New York City and Fellows from NYC to India on a regular basis to share education and surgical technique education. Additionally we have setup a videoconferencing arrangement to do combined conferences case consultations, and research projects to improve patient care. Thirdly we will be changing medical delivery information on how to make the care of patients better worldwide. This was covered by the regional press and also by Sun Television. It was all in the language Tamil. Needless to say, my fried Kumar did all the talking. My Tamil is a little rusty.
