About

This website has been created by Dr Sanjiv Khanse with the primary intention of sharing his studies and experiences with the non-experts (or medical laymen if you like) in order that they are educated about the various health ailments.

The doctors, we visit, many a time do not have the  time to explain in detail “the whys and the how’s and the don’ts”  of the health ailment we have contracted. And it is not practical for us to expect them to explain this to each and every patient as every subject in medicine is so vast — the causes, symptoms, complications, treatments, preventive steps, alternative remedies, etc.

I have been practicing medicine for the last twenty-five years in the city of Mumbai (formerly Bombay), which is the financial capital of India and having a population of more than 13 million. The reason why I am mentioning this is that the exposure that a physician gets here during his studies and medical practice  is tremendous. I now practice in Pune, another city near Mumbai.

I have taken a few references and have given credit where due. Inadvertently, however if I have failed to do so, I shall stand corrected whenever such an omission is pointed out to me.

I have tried to use a very simple and non-medical language for my non-medical friends to understand and if  my articles can convince just a fraction of my readers the importance of prevention,  I will feel that I have succeeded.
