HHS Khar’s Women’s Wellness Clinic to offer mammography examination at half the cost to all women who attended
With International Women’s Day round the corner, Bollywood Superstar Kajol has urged women to look after their health and wellbeing. “As a mother, wife, sister, daughter, you are precious, and the centre of your family’s universe, and you owe it to them to look after yourselves. Women’s Wellness is crucial, and should extend through the ages,” she said.
Kajol was speaking at ‘Women Wellness – Through The Ages’ , a special wellness forum organized by Hinduja Healthcare Surgical, Khar (HHS Khar), through its dedicated Women’s Wellness Clinic. The event was compered by popular actor and celebrity Mandira Bedi. The platform saw pre-eminent doctors of HHS Khar stress upon the need for women to take control of their health and make informed decisions to lead a healthy life.Entry for the event was for women only, and free of cost. However, registration was mandatory, and more than 500 women from Mumbai registered and turned up. For every one of the registered participants, Hinduja Healthcare Surgical Women’s Wellness Clinic at Khar is providing a mammography examination at half the cost.
Superstar Kajol said, “A healthy woman is the foundation of every happy family. Women are meticulous in everything, especially looking after their families and loved ones. But sadly, when it comes to looking after their own health, they can be rather negligent, and can therefore end up facing multiple health concerns right from their adolescence to post-menopausal stages. Many of these issues remain undiagnosed and unaddressed simply because women tend to neglect their own health. This ignorance often leads to critical health concerns at a later stage, which can really be prevented.” At the wellness forum, the team of doctors from HHS Khar addressed various issues on women’s health
Dr. Kiran S Coelho, Gynecologist & Obstetrician, spoke about health issues at different biological stages of a woman’s life
Dr. Chaitanyanand Koppiker, Breast Oncoplasty Surgeon, shared insights on how to keep abreast with breast cancer issues
Gynecological cancers – a grave and growing health concern amongst women — was discussed by Urogynaecology Onco Surgeon Dr Hemant Tongaonkar
Dr Anupam Dudani, Radiologist, who highlighted the importance of timely and accurate diagnosis, shared insightful details on women’s health imaging
Stressing upon the importance of women’s health, Dr. Vishal Beri, Chief Executive Officer, Hinduja Healthcare Surgical, Khar, said, “We at Hinduja Healthcare are committed to improving women’s health, and believe in empowering women to make informed decisions about their health. Our dedicated wellness clinic, a one-stop facility that addresses all women’s health issues under one roof, was set up six months back, and has been supporting this endeavor. The wellness forum we have organized today, along with the planned mammography examinations at half the cost for all the women who have turned up, is testimony to our total commitment to improving Women’s health and wellbeing.”
Popular actor-celebrity Mandira Bedi, who compered the event, said, “It is imperative for each woman to recognize the fact that every healthcare issue can be managed if detected at the right time, and owing to medical advancements, some conditions are even cured if managed well. This Women’s Wellness forum from Hinduja Healthcare Surgical was an important initiative to spread that awareness, and I am glad to have been a part of this initiative.”
Hinduja Healthcare Surgical organized the women’s wellness forum in association with Mukul Madhav Foundation and Prashanti Cancer Care Mission.
