Our Dear K-Way Readers

Hello Readers,

How are you all?

It’s here! Jingle bells and Santa… yes, we are in December 2023! Unbelievable, right? How can time fly so fast!

Bidding farewell to 2023, and thanking everyone who has been with us through happy and hard times, we are all excited to welcome 2024!

The eagerness and excitement of a new year is something each one experiences because it’s also a time when we want to make some decisions that will help us prosper. That’s exactly why we wish everyone a very prosperous new year.

So, as a family physician, you can be quite sure that my focus would be on health resolutions in a healthy way.

Sleep, food and exercise are mainly for physical health whereas digital detox is for mental health.

Mental health issues have almost reached the top rank compared to other health issues and our youngsters are the most affected.

The most important reason being the nuclear family system and living away from dear ones due to occupational and educational compulsions brings a sense of loneliness.

Parenting and schooling play a major role.


A Day Through the Radiotherapy Department

Cancer is managed by a multidisciplinary team consisting of surgical, medical and radiation oncologists along with specialised nurses, nutritionists, occupational therapists, psychologists, social workers and expert technical staff whose cooperation ensures excellent treatment delivery and patient care. Radiation oncology is a branch of modern medicine which treats cancer using high intensity x-ray and particle beams. Rarely, radiation beams are used in non-malignant conditions also.

Kindly Repay Your Sleep Debt

kindly repay your sleep debt

We spend one-third of our lifetime in sleep and yet its importance is not fully understood. Sleep is not just putting your body to rest and switching off your brain activity. It will be quite surprising to know that during sleep our brain will never switch off and continue to be active without disturbing our body.

Patient Experience


“I was thoroughly impressed. Neat, clean and hygienic house keeping all areas within the hospital and rooms in Day care. Competent compassionate and friendly doctors attended to me. The staff – viz secretaries, attenders, nurses and other staff down the line – appeared well motivated and happy overall. I did talk to many down the line, no cribs or grouses. Your HR dept seems to be doing very well. Over all an excellent hospital experience. The best part — it didn’t make me feel as if I was in hospital! The usual smell associated with a hospital was totally absent. Well done Kauvery, keep it up and rise to greater heights of Patient care.”
