The biggest recent advancement in the medical world is Control
of Diabetes (Type 2) by Laparoscopic (Key-hole)
Surgery. A team of specialists from Hyderabad led by Dr
Surendra Ugale is the first in India to
have performed Ileal Transposition Surgery (small intestinal
switch) for control and finally cure of diabetes.
Dr Ugale is the first Indian surgeon to have had the privilege of
being trained by the world pioneer of this procedure, Dr Aureo de Paula of Brazil,
to gain experience in Diabetic Surgery. Dr Aureo has been performing this
surgery for the last 6 years, and has presented his work
internationally, showing excellent results.
The first surgery in India was performed on 18th Feb.
2008 at Kirloskar Hospital's Laparoscopic Surgery Centre, at
