There is a prestigious group of institutions in Alleppey, Pathanamthitta, and Kollam districts that provides care to around 150-200 patients daily from these districts as well as from all over Kerala. This hospital is unique in that it integrates allopathy, ayurveda, and homeopathy in the management and treatment of diabetes and diabetic wounds. It is the only podiatric hospital catering to diabetic wounds of any duration.
Due to the integrated and holistic approach, a large number of patients, around 80-90%, have been able to benefit greatly. Many have been able to lower their insulin doses and oral medications, and some have even been able to stop taking daily OHA’s, instead opting for a specially designed ayurvedic health drink created by the hospital’s ayurvedic division. This has had a positive impact on the overall health and wellbeing of patients.
The hospital’s dedicated doctors and excellent staff have been able to prevent amputations for almost 100 patients annually. This is a significant accomplishment and shows the level of care and attention given to patients at this hospital. By providing a wide range of treatments and utilizing an integrated approach, this hospital is making a real difference in the lives of those living with diabetes and diabetic wounds.
