With excellent academic credentials as an ENT surgeon and
possessed with a wealth of knowledge of the specialty,
in 1982, Dr.Shabbir Indorewala set out with a vision and
resolve to excel in the profession. Paucity of funds was
the only obtrusive bottleneck. Consequently, a small area of
14 square meters of a warehouse was refurbished to
commence his ENT clinic. Though the space was humble, yet
the clinic was equipped with the best clinical and
diagnostic equipment, albeit, on a limited scale, given the
meagre financial resources. At the time, this was the
only private ENT clinic in the state of Maharashtra boasting
of a Bell Microscope for ear examination in out patients
and supported by an Apple computer with a dot matrix
printer! To establish professional credentials and trust, a
limited number of surgeries were performed at a nearby
general surgical facility.
The overwhelming confidence and response of peers and
patients encouraged Dr.Indorewala to upgrade the clinic in 1985.
This was achieved by augmenting the set-up with a small
operation theatre and a four-bedded nursing facility.
The resolve to improve and excel is reflected in
constant up-gradation of equipment and surgical instruments.
A Leica microscope was acquired in 1993, one of only
three in the state at that point of time.
Two decades later, after having established his
professional excellence both on the clinical front and through high
quality precision surgical skills, the entire facility
was shifted to a dedicated premises of 3400 square meters
having a constructed complex of 1600 square meters. The
surgeon’s vision and purpose is well reflected in the built
premises. At a time when “hyped” green-architecture
concepts were little heard of, the institution provided a serene
natural environment, aesthetically incorporated in its
architecture. Today, the institution can justifiably proclaim
to have set global standards in providing private health
care within an extremely environment friendly setup.
In doing so, the clinic has also achieved the social
goal of reducing the ever-burgeoning carbon footprints.
