Doctors at Indraprastha Apollo Hospital have finally solved the tricky case of 16-year old Shobha who was struggling to eat or breathe despite being prescribed asthma medication.
Doctors led by Deepak Rosha have detected a small hole connecting Shobha's windpipe with her food pipe which was the cause of her problems. Shobha comes from a family that is below the poverty line (BPL) and her father Chattu Prasad could not afford to take her to private hospitals.
The doctors to whom he did take his daughter to diagnosed the problem as asthma. However even though she was on asthma treatment, her condition worsened, forcing her parents to finally take her to the Indraprastha Apollo Hospital where she was successfully operated upon.
