 Uterus of 226 Women Removed in Rajasthan Hospitals

In a shocking revelation it has been found that three private hospitals in Rajasthan's Dausa district carried out 226 hysterectomy surgeries (removal of uterus) out of the 385 female patients who had visited the hospital from March to September in the previous year. The three controversial hospitals are Madan Nursing Hospital, Sri Balaji Hopspital and Vijay Hospital.

Through RTI from the office of state medical and health department it has been revealed that hospital authorities removed the uterus even when it was not indicated under the pretext that if the patient's do not undergo surgery the infection will spread to the entire body which can be fatal. Every patient was charged Rs. 12,000-14,000 for the same.

To investigate into the matter the district administration has set up a 3-member committee. Investigating medical officer Meena said, "We have seized the records of five hospitals and process to record statements of women and doctors is going on. It is too early to establish the fact that the doctors removed uterus just to extract money and there was no infection. We are collecting medical investigation reports in the cases to find out the truth."
