1. Prof S Suresh has been awarded 'D.Sc. Honoris Causa' by the TN MGR Medical University
Dear Prof Suresh
It is fantastic to hear that you have been awarded 'D.Sc. Honoris Causa' by the TN MGR medical university. It is an extremely well deserved honour in recognition of your contribution to medicine and the huge volume of work that is being done.
For me and to many many others, you have been a role model and an inspiration for what an individual can achieve if they set their mind to it irrespective of what the system gives or denies them. More importantly your work has shown that we can do this in a fashion that reaches the same system and in fact strengthens it .
Congratulations from all of us at Seethapathy.
Wishing you and the team with you the very best of health, energy and enthusiasm for more work and recognition in the future.

Woman delivered of twins and an abnormal foetus
A poor couple from Tiruvallur
were blessed with a set of healthy identical twins thanks
to the extraordinary public private partnership between
Fetal Care Research Foundation, MediScan & The Govt.
A poor couple from Tiruvallur was referred to MediScan with
a Monochorionic triplet pregnancy with one acardiac acephalic
baby. There was severe polyhydramnios and the risk of losing the
normal babies if untreated was 100%. The option of in-utero therapy
by occlusion of the blood vessel going to the abnormal baby was
discussed and the parents were willing for the procedure. However,
they could not afford the cost -Rs. 70,000. The patient was admitted
at the Govt. RSRM hospital under Dr.Hepsiba and the procedure
was done at MediScan by Prof.S.Suresh, Dr.Indrani Suresh &
Dr. Subapriya K . The pregnancy was closely monitored and the
twin babies weighing 1.9 kg each were delivered by Dr.Hepsiba

Prof. S. Suresh, Dr. Indrani Suresh and Dr. Uma Ram on "Understanding
Technological advances have had a huge
impact on our lives, especially in the medical field. And
arguably one of the biggest beneficiary has been the pregnant
woman. In times long past, the focus was on the mother:
her health, what she ate, how she felt... With the advent
of the ultrasound and other such advances, the focus shifted
to the baby inside the uterus leading thereby to the rise
of foetal medicine.
One of the pioneers in the field of ultrasound and foetal
medicine in India is Prof. S. Suresh, Director MediScan Systems,
Chennai. He also played a key role in setting up a Birth
Defects Registry of India, setting standards for Down's
syndrome screening, introducing newborn metabolic screening
and training of people in ultrasound from India and abroad.
In recognition of his services in the field, he has been
invited by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists,
U.K., to be a Fellow Honoris Corsa and conferred the FRCOG
in November 2010.
As Prof. S. Suresh, Dr. Indrani Suresh and Dr. Uma Ram discuss
how the advent of the ultrasound changed the way the foetus
was viewed and the range of issues that now dog foetal medicine,
one realises what a crucial step this was. Excerpts from
we need is a special diploma in obstetric ultrasound. Ultrasound
should be declared as a sub specialty -Prof. S. Suresh
