About Us

From A Garage Onwards...

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.
