Today we are extremely delighted to bring this வயிறு 2.0 (Vayiru 2.0) – 2nd National Gastro Expo 2019 to Chennai. My forty years experiences as a doctor has taught me that most diseases are self-inflicted by improper diet, inadequate exercises and bad habits like tobacco and alcohol. Most illnesses including the dreaded cancer are curable. Advanced technology in anesthesia and surgery and the expertise of doctors have made this possible. Laparoscopy and Robotic Surgery have reduced the pain to a very great extent and minimized the hospital stay largely. Early return to normal life happens at the earliest. To educate all, on these developments is the objective of exhibitions like this. Our Chennai hospital will start the Clinical Services from 30th Jan 2019 onwards”.
Dr. S. Asokan, Director – CEO, GEM Hospital Chennai said, “Knowledge and awareness about healthy habits, importance of exercises, preventable diseases, maximizing the benefits of medical treatments and availing such service cost efficiently is required for everyone.
