Transformative Tales from KAKA-BA HOSPITAL:The Saga of the Care Continues…

In the heart of Gujarat, Kaka-Ba Hospital stands as a symbol of transformative healthcare, where each story is a testament to resilience, compassion, and the unwavering commitment to making lives better. Through this segment, we delve into the remarkable journeys of individuals who found solace and renewal within the walls of Kaka-Ba Hospital.

Breaking Free: Wilson’s Decade-long Journey to Newfound Mobility

One such significant journey is that of Wilson from Tamil Nadu. Confined by hip and knee infections, the middle-aged man faced severe mobility challenges and was bedridden for over a decade. His efforts to get treatment in Tamil Nadu did not materialize due to financial constraints. Fortunately, he met Dr. Bharat Champaneria, a trustee at Indrashil Kaka-Ba and Kala Budh Public Charitable Trust, at a medical camp as part of Cadila Pharmaceuticals’ CSR initiatives in Tamil Nadu. Recognizing the severity of Wilson’s condition and deeply moved by it, Dr. Champaneria assured him of providing the necessary medical intervention if he was willing to travel to Hansot in Bharuch district.

Sensing a rare opportunity to restore his health and put an end to his distressing condition, Wilson agreed to make the journey from Tamil Nadu to Kaka Ba Hospital in Hansot. At the hospital, Wilson underwent extensive examinations, leading to successful Total Knee and Hip replacement surgeries. Wilson was able to stand on his own feet and move after several years.

The cost of the surgeries, totaling approximately Rs. 20 lakh, was graciously waived off by Cadila Pharmaceuticals. The company also covered the patient’s travel and other expenses.

Dr. Bharat Champaneria said, “At Indrashil Kaka-Ba and Kala Budh Public Charitable Trust and Cadila Pharmaceuticals, our mission is to extend a helping hand to those in need. Wilson’s case is a perfect example of our commitment to making a meaningful difference in the lives of individuals and communities. We are happy to have played a role in helping Wilson overcome his ailments and lead a better life.” Wilson’s return to Coonoor after four months, where he resumed a normal life, is a testament to the power of humble actions and compassionate care.

Transformative Healthcare: Overcoming Cancer and Tumor Challenges

At 42 years old, Meenaben Rajeshbhai Machhi Patel’s story echoes the triumph of the human spirit over adversity. Coming from a humble economic background, she toils as a daily wage laborer on village farms. Battling unbearable stomach pain for months, Meenaben, a widow and mother of two, sought medical advice at a local clinic where she found no relief. Upon the recommendation of a family member, Meenaben visited Kaka-Ba Hospital, where Dr. Jignesh Patel, a Laparoscopic Gastro Surgeon, administered her treatment. Diagnostic tests revealed a cancerous tumor in her intestine. Faced with this daunting diagnosis, Dr. Patel, armed with expertise and empathy, successfully performed the necessary surgery, leading to Meenaben’s remarkable recovery. Expressing her gratitude, Meenaben shared, ‘I thought I couldn’t overcome this shock, but this operation gave me a new life.’

The hospital’s commitment to transformative healthcare further manifested in the successful treatment of 60-year-old Natvarbhai Bhikhabhai Patel, who underwent surgery to address a massive retroperitoneal tumor. Natvarbhai had been grappling with years of persistent abdominal pain before seeking the expertise of Dr. Jignesh Patel and Dr. Vimal Patel, an Anesthetist at Kaka-Ba Hospital.

The expertise of the medical team at Kaka-Ba led to a transformative surgical procedure, resulting in the removal of a substantial mass weighing approximately 4.200kg from Natvarbhai’s abdomen (retroperitoneal space). This achievement not only alleviated his persistent pain but also marked a significant triumph for Kaka-Ba Hospital in delivering high-quality healthcare services.

Ramanbhai 2

In a parallel success story, 73-year-old Raman Bhai Dahyabhai Rathod, an embroidery worker from Kim, Surat faced unique health challenges of his own. Having previously undergone surgery for hernia at a private hospital in Bardoli, he began experiencing unbearable stomach pain a month after the procedure. Subsequent examinations revealed an appendix issue, prompting him to another private hospital in Surat.

It was during this time that they discovered Kaka Ba Hospital through the Ayushman card, Raman Bhai and his family consulted with Dr. Jignesh Patel on July 7, 2023. As Dr. Patel examined Raman Bhai’s condition, the severity of the situation became apparent. Despite the severity of the situation, Dr. Patel identified a cancerous tumor in the intestine and, choosing to act decisively in the face of imminent risk, successfully performed the surgery. Raman Bhai’s years-long agony finally came to an end, and his family expressed deep gratitude with the treatment received at Kaka Ba Hospital.

A common thread runs through these narratives—a profound sense of gratitude and renewed hope. Each individual has not only regained good health but has also experienced a remarkable transformation in their lives. These outstanding accomplishments are yet another feather in the cap of Kaka-Ba Hospital, underlining their unwavering commitment to providing exceptional medical care.

Surgery-Free Future: Pioneering a Vision for Hansot Taluka


In the spirit of pushing boundaries, Kaka-Ba Hospital initiated a visionary campaign – making the entire Hansot taluka of Bharuch surgery-free by December 2024. Beyond just a goal, this is a commitment to addressing medical issues through non-surgical means; ensuring healthcare needs are met without the burden of surgeries.

The ongoing campaign, supported by Cadila Pharmaceuticals, ONGC, Asian Paints, and other partners, exemplifies the hospital’s dedication to creating a healthier and more resilient community. Dr. Bharat Champaneria emphasized, “Our vision is to make quality healthcare accessible to every individual in the community. By making Hansot surgery-free, we aim to alleviate the burden of medical expenses on residents.”

Acting on the Vision: Expanding Healthcare Horizons with Multispecialty Camps

As the year drew to a close, Kaka-Ba Hospital extended its impact through five multispecialty medical camps in Hansot, covering a spectrum of medical specialties including Neurology, Ophthalmology, Gynecology, Dental, Pediatrics, Spine & Neck, Plastic surgeries, Urology, Orthopedics, General Surgery, and ENT. These camps reached over 1500 patients, providing consultations and treatments that go beyond immediate care.

Dr. Bharatbhai Champaneria reflected on the large turnout, stating, “The confidence of communities in our quality healthcare services drives us forward.” The success of these camps aligns with Kaka-Ba Hospital’s broader mission, taking a step closer to making “Surgery-free Hansot.” These camps not only benefited thousands but also identified 422 patients in need of intensive treatment or surgeries, continuing the hospital’s transformative journey.


Hope and healing are evident in every story, triumph, and initiative for those who walk through the doors of Kaka-Ba Hospital. The institution remains steadfast in its dedication to delivering top-notch healthcare solutions, with a mission to transform lives and ensure a brighter and healthier future for individuals in need by offering solutions to health challenges at no cost.
