The specialised panel of Doctors from Muthoot Healthcare, Kozhencherry, led by Dr. Cherian Mathew, Chief Surgeon, Department of Surgery and Dr.Manoj Thomas Kuruvilla, Consultant Endocrinologist, Department of Endocrinology conducted a free thyroid detection camp in association with YWCA, Thiruvalla in January, 2015.
After the official inauguration, educative sessions were jointly conducted by Dr.Cherian Mathew and Dr.Manoj Thomas Kuruvilla, encouraging the patients to
approach thyroid diagnosis and treatment with a more open mind.
Conducting specific thyroid related screening tests, the patients were then provided clinical consultation services by both specialists. Their practical minded approach to diagnostic and treatment practices were instrumental in meeting the needs of the thyroid patients. The patient could therefore look forward to an early diagnosis and alleviation of symptoms.
The patient floor, numbering well over 160 numbers which predominantly comprised of many senior citizens evinced keen interest. Worldwide, thyroid testing has increased showing the growing prevalence of thyroid disorders. This camp was successful in enlightening the YWCA members and public about the detection and treatment of this problem which most people were ignorant about. Cases that tested positive were followed up at the Healthcare provider’s branch in Kozhencherry.
Also, with the rapid advancement in medical technology, Muthoot Healthcare has left no stone unturned to introduce sophisticated technology and services to provide the very best possible care to patients.
