IMPORTANT NOTICE: At Fortis Healthcare, we are fully supportive of the National priorities set out by the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India. Further to the directives of the Government provided in their press release dated 8th Nov 2016, payments at Government hospitals can be made through 500 and 1000 Rupee denomination notes. In view of the hardship being caused to the large number of patients at private hospitals, we have made an urgent representation to the Government that this exemption should apply equally, for payments, at private hospitals. We are following up with the authorities and hope the Government will step in quickly to resolve this anomaly. Meanwhile, at Fortis hospitals across the country, we continue to accept payments through credit card, debit card and electronic banking transfers. As 500 and 1000 Rupee denomination notes are no longer legal tender we are only accepting 100 Rs and lower currency notes. As per Government regulation, a PAN card and legitimate ID proof is however required for payments in cash exceeding Rs 50,000. Meanwhile we continue to ensure that emergency cases get immediate medical attention without delay whatsoever and have put in more administrative staff and help desks to assist patients.

Vertebroplasty, Spine Surgery; Dr.S. Satish ; Fortis Bangalore, India

After an extensive investigation, Fortis doctors diagnosed Mrs. Shear Banu's condition to be severe Osteoporosis of the spine resulting in collapse of one vertebra or spinal segment. This in turn caused spinal nerve compression and an excruciating back pain which would make it impossible for her to even turn in the bed. So our neurosurgeons performed a very minimally-invasive procedure called vertebroplasty through a mere needle, suture-less technique. Following the surgery, the very next day, Mrs. Shear Banu is now pain-free and can now perform her daily tasks on her own.
