Tirou Medical Center was started in September 2014 to provide quality health care at affordable prices in Pondicherry and surrounding region. Founded by Dr Kannane Tirou and Dr Prema Tirou, the center aims to provide health education and to provide access to friendly doctors.
PELICAN (Pondicherry Endoscopy and Liver Care Network), a unit of Tirou Medical Center, was set up to fulfill the demand for Medical Gastroenterology and Endoscopic services in the region. PELICAN aims to establish a complete treatment center for Gastrointestinal and Liver diseases and to serve as a networking model for basic regional endoscopic units with access to a tertiary care center. The intention is to provide international Standard care locally and to prevent the need to travel to Chennai to seek treatment for basic endoscopic services.
