Over the past 20 years the perspective of Paediatric cardiac surgery has changed considerably worldwide from mortality over 20% to less than 2% for most procedures. When we compare western countries and their health care system with ours we find a considerable difference and it is mainly due to fact that there they started addressing healthcare needs of specific population groups separately for example they have different hospitals for general population & paediatric population , this helps in better treatment and research outcomes.
Till now in Northern India we have culture of providing health care services to all age groups under one roof and due to this the paediatric population remained largely underserved as they need high quality dedicated care which is not available at every centre this in turn led to overburdening of few centers and long waiting time and unfortunately most patients don’t survive that.
With a vision to meet the quality health care needs to this very specific age group the Govt. of Uttar Pradesh decided to start SuperSpeciality Paediatric Hospital and Postgraduate Teaching Institute at Noida. This institute provides all speciality and superspeciality services including Cardiac Surgery to paediatric population under one roof at very economic cost. In Delhi NCR region only AIIMS , New Delhi provides surgical treatment for complete spectrum of cardiac illnesses and that’s why it is severely over burdened with long waiting period. The department of Paediatric Cardiac Surgery at SSPH & PGTI is committed to provide quality surgical to all entire paediatric age group with minimum waiting period and very economic cost.
- To provide quality cardiac surgical care to whole paediatric population.
- Treatment with minimal cost and minimum waiting period.
