Medical Director's Message

Dr. Shailesh Puntambekar

Dear Friends,

I welcome you to Galaxy Care Multispeciality Hospital, a premier Institute for Advanced Laparoscopy. Laparoscopy originated way back in the 1980’s and was mainly used as a diagnostic modality .It has, over a period of years, evolved into a primary modality for surgery. All the conventional open surgeries are now being performed by Laparoscopy /Key-hole surgeries. With the advancement in optics and energy sources, and with increasing abilities of surgeons, an increasing number of these surgeries are being performed and the feasibility has been proven in all tumors.

We, at Galaxy were one of the first to recognize the advantages of laparoscopy in Cancer surgery. Thus since 2003, we have performed all types of Cancer surgeries laparoscopically. The pioneering work has been in Oesophagical cancer & cervical cancers. In fact, the Lap Radical Hysterectomy for cancer cervix, goes by the name of our city and is known as the “PUNE TECHNIQUE”.

We have also started performing NOTES and single port surgeries and we were the first to do single port radical Hysterectomy.

We have acquired the Robot and at Galaxy-Care we offer all types of Robotic Cancer surgeries.

Beside the state of art equipment, Galaxy has a dedicated staff with extremely competent Surgeons, Gynecologists, Urologists and Gastroenterologist. The nursing staff and the supportive staff is loving and compassionate.

The Galaxy Care Hospital Pune is a part of CARE group, a group known worldwide for quality care in cardiology. With the addition of MAS, CARE wishes to do the same magic in health care. For all of us ‘Patients comes First’.

We at Galaxy promise to give you the best when you come to us.

Warm Regards,
Dr. Shailesh Puntambekar
