Vaishali, 14th November, 2017: Max Super Speciality Hospital, Vaishali, , one of the leading healthcare providers in Delhi-NCR, launched ‘DiabetEase Clinic’, a clinic that will offer comprehensive treatment to address and treat the rising number of diabetic cases in the region. This initiative is in line with Max Healthcare’s focus to change healthcare delivery for chronic ailments. This clinic will offer a 360 view of this disease by not only treating existing diabetes but also detecting and treating complications that come with it.

It will offer access to specialized doctors (including Endocrinologist, Ophthalmologists, Dentists & Cardiologists) and dieticians. It will provide necessary detection tools like retina scan and a full-fledged foot lab. One of the other goals of this program is to make it convenient for patients by providing at-home services like sample collection and medicine delivery. With the launch of this clinic in Vaishali, Max Healthcare is taking another patient-centric step to delivering quality healthcare.

The clinic was launched by Mr. Neeraj Mishra (Senior Vice President - Operations, Zonal Head, NCR 2), Dr. Vinay Aggarwal  (Member, Medical Council of India,  Executive Member, Delhi Medical Council,  Director, Crosslay Remedies Ltd. Max Super Specialty Hospital, Vaishali, Past National President, Indian Medical  Association, Managing Director, Pushpanjali  Medical Centre), Dr. Gaurav Aggarwal (Unit Head, Max Super Specialty Hospital, Vaishali), Dr. Sanjiv Bhambani  (Director and HOD – Endocrinology and Diabetes, Max Super Specialty Hospital, Vaishali)

Mr. Neeraj Mishra, Senior Vice President - Operations, Zonal Head,  NCR 2, “As a quality healthcare provider, Max Healthcare’s focus has been on changing service delivery to address a diverse population while giving individualized care. In India, approximately 70 million individuals are living with diabetes, making us the second largest diabetic population in the world. Recognizing the dire need for early detection, prevention, treatment and a holistic management of the disease, we have launched ‘DiabetEase Clinic’ – the first of its kind comprehensive-care clinic for diabetics. It is also important to point out that the clinic apart from medical care and treatment will also focus on expert counselling and lifestyle management support which is a major part of tackling diabetes treatment.

 Dr. Gaurav Aggarwal, Unit Head – Max Super Specialty Hospital, Vaishali also shared, “At Max Super Specialty Hospital, Vaishali our endeavor is to equip the common man with relevant information pertaining to diabetes. To combat this complicated disease, our newly launched diabetes clinic – “DiabetEase” will offer healthy lifestyle programs encouraging people to lead a healthy life. This is a unique program in all of U.P and we are dedicated to making this a success for our patients. Our comprehensive services will include all consultations, investigations and a host of foot lab products, which have been specifically designed to cater to the needs of diabetic patients.  Along with the other facilities, a diabetes health card will also be issued to the patients through which they can avail offers and discounts throughout the year.”

 Dr. Sanjiv Bhambani, Director and HOD, with over 40 years of experience in diabetes and endocrinology, also said “ According to a recent report, diabetes will be the world’s seventh largest killer by 2030. Diabetes attacks one’s whole system and especially the vital organs like eyes, skin, foot and kidneys. We have launched ‘DiabetEase clinic’ because diabetes is a lifestyle disorder and cannot be treated with just medication. Along with medicines, a proper and balanced diet, lifestyle modifications, physical activity, stress management and regular counselling are also required. The clinic not only aims at diagnosis of diabetes, its treatment, early detection, and prevention, but also gives an equal importance to dietary counselling, assessment, screening and other related concerns which are not generally addressed and are avoided.”

 According to official statistics released by The Indian Institute of Public Health (IIPH), the number of diabetes patients in the country is likely to go up to 120 million in next 20 years as against the current 70 million. This disease also accounts for 55% of premature deaths in India. Hence a comprehensive diabetes assessment, care and management programme is a critical need that Max Healthcare is addressing.
