The first charity in the history of Minimal Access Surgery program of World Laparoscopy Hospital was given by Dr Rajeshwar Prasad Mishra. He was a very accomplished surgeon who did performed 80,000 surgeries in his life time. He performed many difficult and even daring surgeries. He has done a lot of good for a lot of people, and if history is kind it will remember him for that rather than his care for poor people.
He was the father of Dr R K Mishra. According to Dr Rajeshwar Prasad Mishra Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of your arm. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands: one for helping yourself, the other for helping others. The hardest part of being a laparoscopic and robotic surgeon in India is having to tell a patient the cost of minimal access surgery and watch the despair in their eyes. To produce the finances required can wipe out a family. We have all encountered families where they sold their last piece of jewelry or their only piece of land to be able to offer minimal access surgical care for the family member they love.
For families such as those who can not afford, there are now various programs and charities available by World Laparoscopy Hospital initiated by Dr R K Mishra that can help in times of need. The aim of this section of World Laparoscopy Hospital website is to spread the information available so that more patients can access the resources now available in our country.
