High-volume cataract workshops in India

Tilganga Eye Centre’s Dr. Govinda Paudel traveled to Mangarh, Uttar Pradesh (UP), a remote region of India to continue providing cataract surgery training to local eye care personnel working at Jagatguru Kripalu Charity Hospitals located in Mangarh and Barsana, UP.

In two days 2,150 patients were examined, 791 cataract surgeries were provided by three surgeons — Dr. Paudel from Tilganga and local Drs. Mahanthi and Anand.

Amazingly, Dr. Paudel hit a new surgical milestone during the workshop — performing 247 high quality cataract surgeries in a single day. This is the highest number of surgeries that a single surgeon has performed in all of Tilganga’s work.
