FREE SURGERIES FOR JNEE/HIP REPLACEMENT
Muthoot Life Brigade also plays a significant role in the CSR efforts of MPF in healthcare segment extending free treatment to patients from disadvantaged settings. Being an Orthopedic Specialty Hospital, several deserving patients are getting free treatment here in knee/ hip replacements supported through CSR. The cost of these surgery is normally unaffordable for financially weak people in which MPF is supporting them to get it done free of cost at the Life Brigade Hospital under the supervision of expert Surgeons.
Life Brigade and MPF also partners with other health initiatives sharing its resources and facilities extending supports to needy patients. Recently Life Brigade participated in the Soukhyam Medical Camp at Cochin under the auspices of Hibi Eden MLA in which the experts from Life Brigade provided free consultation to more than 45 patients reported with ortho issues. From among these cases, three patients (one hip replacement, one bilateral total knee replacement and one case of Tendo Calcaneus Lengthening) were given surgeries at Life Brigade totally free of cost considering in MPF’s Treatment support scheme.
Life Brigade Hospital is conducting Medical Check-up camps at various locations associating with the Muthoot Fincorp Branches. Hundreds of patients are consulted in each camps providing them medical guidance especially on ortho related issues. Patient referral requests from the MFL branches and these medical camps are reviewed in the Treatment Support Committee of MPF to provide free services for really deserving cases.
