The Department of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery at Fortis Hospital Shalimar Bagh has performed numerous surgeries to save lives of patients, who presented with severe medical and physical conditions. To commemorate the National Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Day, Dr. Richie Gupta, HOD and Sr. Consultant, and Dr. Rajat Gupta, Consultant, Department of Plastic, Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery, Fortis Hospital Shalimar Bagh brings forth patients, who displayed tremendous strength of character and courage, and have survived challenges thrown at them.
Komal was born into a family from Madhya Pradesh. Ever since Komal became aware of her body, she felt that something was wrong. While her physical body (sex) was female, her mind (gender) was essentially male. As a result, she felt herself to be a man trapped in a woman's body. After living in this condition for several years she confided in her family. Her family advised her to resolve this conflict by seeking correct treatment. Her search revealed that Dr. Richie Gupta and Dr. Rajat Gupta at the Gender Identity Clinic, at Fortis Hospital Shalimar Bagh have treated a large number of patients with Gender Dysphoria. The Gender Identity Clinic at FHSB treats a large number of transsexuals every year. They receive around 35 new cases every year and perform around 60 operations yearly. The patient management is largely based on 7th Standards of Care (7th SOCs), as specified by WPATH (World Professional Association for Transgender Health).
Arvind was presented to Dr. Gupta as an accident victim with a severely damaged body below his waist. Having fallen off his two-wheeler, Arvind was run over by a truck trolley which smashed his lower limb and a major portion of his lower abdomen and genitalia. With parts of his body hanging from his waist level, he posed a challenge to Dr. Gupta and his team. He faces life today with multiple surgeries having reconstructed his body and saved his life.
