Padma Bhushan Dr. Suresh Advani
Certainly I will choose the above if I asked to describe Dr. Suresh Advani in just one line. You might be surprised to learn that his life get the starting with pains as he was born on 1August 1947 at Karachi and within no time family was forced to migrate to India because of partition of the country. Family of Suresh Advani settled at Ghatkopar Mumbai, but the nature keep its testing process on for the newly born baby, as Suresh at the age of 8 was attacked by Polio. Physically challenged status didn't prove a hurdle for Suresh, he completed his schooling from a Sindhi medium school at Ghatkopar, Mumbai and become graduate from the Somaiya College. He decided to gain a professional degree from Grand Medical College but this was not a smooth process as at initial stage he was refused for admission just because of his physically challenged status. This was the determination of Suresh, which was boosted high during his talks with doctors, who were providing treatment for Polio attack on him, that finally he got admission for M.B.B.S. Actually these talks, do remember in those day there were very less facilities available in India for treatment of diseases like Polio, inspired Suresh decided to be a helping hand for the suffering humanity. After completing M.D. in General Medicine he opted for Oncology a branch of medicine for which a few facilities were available in the country. He went on to Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Centre, Seattle, Washington, USA, where he got chance to work with 1990's Nobel Prize winner Dr. E Donnall Thomas, who is famous as the father of bone-marrow transplantation. Dr Suresh Advani has fame of being pioneer in establishing Bone Marrow Transplantation set up in India.

Dr. Suresh Advani, Jaslok Hospital, Mumbai, India


ProPoor: Serving South Asia

The never-ending rendezvous with medical practitioners had an unusual fallout - little Suresh could foresee his future profession.
He ranked among the first ten in the inter science examination. After the examination, Suresh approached the medical colleges of his locality. But he had been denied admission for he was considered 'unfit' for medical education. Hurdles made his task more challenging. Suresh approached the senior officials and ministers for help. Finally after three long months of wheeling from pillar to post, the 'never-say-die' student got his deserved admission to the Grant Medical College in Mumbai. Today, in his mid-fifties Dr Suresh Advani is the director of medical oncology at Jaslok Hospital in Mumbai. From the early days of his career Dr Advani has been delving deep into the medical science to find a way out to combat the deadly claws of cancer. The 'good doctor' pioneered the bone marrow treatment for leukaemia in India. More than five hundred of his papers on the subject have been published in various international medical journals. Dr Advani never let his research work stand between him and his patients. In fact, the wheel-chair bound doctor is much 'larger than life' for his patients. Crippled legs could never cripple his mind, but at times he feels helpless to see the wonting eyes of his terminally ill patients craving to live a day more. The doctor strongly believes that psychological counselling and mass awareness are equally necessary to provide palliative care to the ailing patients. With wife Geeta, he provides counselling to boost up his patients' confidence . Moreover, he personally reaches out to the public to inform them about the deadly disease and its prevention. Dhanwantari Award 2002, the nation's highest medical award has come as a milestone in Doctor Suresh Advani's journey towards his dream destination - a state-of-the-art medical centre for oncology that shall cater to the needs of the common people.
