Paediatric Heart Surgery

RCMMS has embarked on a noble and notable cause of paediatric heart surgeries in association with notable hospitals in the city of Mumbai. RCMMS intends to complete this project with prominent hospitals in Mumbai, India. The cause is of immense importance because congenital heart defects affect a large number of newborns and account for a high proportion of infant mortality worldwide. As many as 200,000 children are born with congenial heart disease in India. Out of this, a mere 2% are treated and 98% do not survive or are disabled for life. Apart from the trauma and stress the family undergoes, the cost may hamper such treatment for many lesser privileged families.
