Unlocking the Next Level of Surgical Care

India’s surgical crisis is like a puzzle game that’s “less jigsaw, more Tetris,” says researcher Siddhesh Zadey.   

One region with usable operating rooms may lack available beds. In another part of the country, there may be plenty of beds but no blood bank. 

Countrywide, the workforce is the most lopsided resource. Disparate densities of surgeons, nurses, anesthesiologists, and technicians mean a shortage of  professionals in any particular area can incapacitate the entire system. 

The Quote: “Successfully delivering good-quality surgical care depends on all the building blocks of the health centre.”
