Dr Lalit Verma - Paediatric Gastroenterologist

My baby could have bleed and not survived after swallowing pin, if it was not for the medical treatment we received from Wockhardt Hospital doctors. They saved her life.

"My baby started crying and refused to drink milk, I took her to my local paediatrician and we did a chest x-ray. The doctor showed me that a safety pin was stuck in her throat and it needed to be removed surgically otherwise she would bleed profusely. I rushed her to Wockhardt Hospital, immediately the doctors took charge of my child and Dr Neepa, an ENT surgeon looked into my case. She attempted to remove the pin but it got lodged further in her throat. The doctors did not want to take any risks so Dr Lalit Verma a paediatric gastroenterologist at the hospital decided to remove the pin endoscopically. The surgery took an hour, but it was without any complications. Thereafter she was observed in the ward. Dr Lalit Verma explained to us the disaster that had been averted if they had not removed the pin in time. We are grateful to doctors at Wockhardt Hospital for their quick decision and immediate medical attention in attending to our child."
