Odisha doctor performs operation on mobile-torch light

Keonjhar: A doctor at the District Headquarters Hospital here on Saturday performed an operation with the help of mobile-torch and helped save life of a woman patient who needed immediate surgery.

As per reports, the woman was rescued by police near OMC rest house under Barbil police limits last evening in critical condition. She had received some grievous injuries on her head, neck and body.

She was first admitted to Barbil hospital but was later rushed to the Keonjhar DHH after her condition deteriorated.

The doctor in-charge then performed preliminary operation on mobile-torch light as there was no availability of electricty or any substitute in the hospital at that point of time.

“Police admitted an unknown woman whose condition was critical. She had injuries on her neck affecting her windpipe. After preliminary operation here, we have referred her to SCB in Cuttack,” said Dr A K Dey, the one who performed the operation.

Locals praised Dey for his presence of mind and dedication towards duty which saved the woman.
