Dr. Ketan Parikh
Dr. Ketan Parikh is a practicing Pediatric Surgeon in the city of Mumbai since more than 20 years. He was one of the very few pediatric surgeons then, who had restricted his practice only for the surgical care of children and infants. At a time when the facilities for successful surgery in newborns were rare in private and small hospitals, he improvised methods of care to achieve a high success rate for surgery in newborns. He was the first to start an exclusive pediatric surgical nursing home in the city of Mumbai. Here he successfully performed a variety of advanced surgeries in young children and newborns. At a time when the concept of pediatric intensive care and neonatal care was uncommon, he offered these services for his surgical patients in his nursing home in Ghatkopar.
