Recognising its need and the hassles that patients have to bear when a family member is at hospital post a surgery, we planned to launch our post surgery care."
"Treating patients post surgery not only requires medical expertise but also demands an extremely sensitive approach on the part of the treatment providers. This is what we exactly do by bringing professional healthcare services to patients’ doorsteps, so that they do not have to go through the cumbersome routine of hospital stay and visits after a surgery,” Srivastava added further.
