Fifty bedded Hi-tech Diabetic Care centre in Chennai

Dr Rajesh Kesavan, founder-director of the Dr. RK Diabetic Foot and Podiatry Institute &RakeshJhunjhunwala Amputation Prevention Center and Director, Rare Family Foundation, MrsRekhaJhunjunwala inaugurated a hi-tech 50-bed diabetic care hospital in Chennai on December 24.
The hospital is the first in India to have an Extremity MRI, which allows partial scanning as opposed to the whole body scans used in hospitals across the country. 

 Dr Kesavan said

“This allows scanning of just the foot and leg instead of the entire body, allowing the patient to finish the scanning while reading a book or sipping a cup of coffee,” said DrKesavan. “It is also the first to use Cold Plasma Therapy,  which inactivates bacteria including multi-resistant pathogens, viruses, Fungi and spores, thereby speeding up the healing process,” he added. Speaking on the occasion, MsRekhaJhunjhunwala, the wife of the late investor and stock market wizard RakeshJhunjunwala, said that the hospital “fulfils a long-held vision and dream of my husband.”
