Success Stories

Dr. S. K Soganihas saved many a life in the nick of time.

He was a five-day old infant, weighing 600 grams only, premature and bleeding profusely. This small being had haematoma, a thick blood clot in his brain. Even if injected one small needle, blood would ooze out and continue to flow for an hour at a stretch. No one was ready to touch him as even shifting him from one place to another would lead to profuse bleeding. He was dying. To operate upon him or not was to be decided within a minute. To muster up courage to touch the child was a challenge taken up by Dr. S.K. Sogani. He rushed the child to the intensive care unit. Within an hour, the child stopped bleeding and his heartbeat was normal. This 51-year-old neuro-surgeon at Apollo Indraprastha Hospital, Delhi, took out his haematoma. For him the challenge was not new, but the case was. For the experience of doing more than 5000 brain and spinal operations gave him enough confidence. "He was too delicate to hold," Dr Sogani recalls.

One Amar Singh weighing 140 kg was almost paralysed because of severe back pain. He was unable to get up or sit down on his own. He had also developed brain stem tumour. All doctors had refused to attend to him thinking the inevitable was round the corner. But soon after for more than 10 hours, Singh was in operation theatre under Dr Sogani's charge. A few days later, Singh was on the road to recovery.
