Dr Anahita Pandole, who was driving the car which met with an accident killing former Tata sons chairman Cyrus Mistry, was operated on today for pelvic reconstruction.

A week later Gynaecologist Anahita Pandole was operated on today for pelvic reconstruction by an expert team of doctors at Sir HN Reliance Foundation Hospital. Given the complex pelvic fracture, multiple opinions of various experts around the world were also taken including doctors from USA, UK, Europe and more. This development was confirmed by the chief executive officer of the hospital. Meanwhile, the duo are stable and are under constant observation of the doctors.

Reconstructive pelvic surgery is corrective surgery of the pelvic organs to repair abnormalities caused by uterine prolapse, urinary incontinence, endometriosis or prior surgeries in the pelvic region. These procedures repair the abnormalities without removing the organs.

The team that conducted the surgery includes Dr Vaibhav Bagaria, Director, Department of Orthopaedics, Dr Dilip Tanna, Mentor Orthopedics, Dr Darius Soonawala, Consultant Orthopedics and senior anaesthetist Dr Daisy along with trained nurses and technicians.

Also Dr Peter V Giannoudis has been flown from the UK to provide the team with expert advice. He is the Chairman of Academic Department of Trauma and Orthopaedics Surgery at University of Leeds, UK and will be providing expert advice to his team.

“With a team of 20 plus multi-disciplinary experts, we have been monitoring the condition of Dr. Anahita closely for the last 11 days before planning any surgical intervention. Pelvic surgery was concluded today morning with precise techniques, clinical skills and modern technologies. This will enable the recovery of the injuries caused post the traumatic accident. I am grateful to our surgical teams and for the advice provided by Dr. Peter V Giannoudis," said Dr Tarang Gianchandani, CEO, Sir HN Reliance Foundation Hospital.

Meanwhile, Darius Pandole who had undergone minor surgery for forearm fixation surgery last week is stable now and is currently under observation.

On September 4, Dr Anahita Pandole and her husband Darius Pandole sustained serious injuries in a car accident that occurred in Palghar district when she was returning to Mumbai from Ahmedabad. Following this both were admitted to Rainbow hospital in Vapi for immediate treatment and later the duo was shifted to HN Reliance hospital through green corridor.
