Pune, June 20, 2016: Chief Minister Shri. Devendra Fadnavis inaugurated Galaxy Care Hospital, Pune, on Wednesday, 15th June 2016 at Ayurvedic Rasashala Premises.
At the inauguration ceremony, Shri. Devendra Fadnavis said, “With the use of robotics and 3D images, technology has brought about precision in healthcare. But, it will be crucial to see that their benefits are not availed only by some section of the society. Hence, it is of paramount importance that technology in healthcare remains affordable and within the reach of common people."
Talking about Pune Technique pioneered by cancer surgeon Shailesh Puntambekar, medical director of Galaxy Care hospital, for treatment of cancer, Fadnavis said, "The technique is now being used by surgeons in 40 countries across the world and shows that our surgeons are at par with those in developed countries."
