NEW DELHI (Diya TV) — Doctors in India have replaced the damaged nose of a 12-year-old boy with a new one which was grown on his forehead. After he suffered pneumonia as a baby, Arun Patel’s nose was badly damaged and disfigured as a result.

The infection damaged the cartilage of his nose, making it difficult for doctors to fix it. In 2013, a similar operation was carried out in China where a man who had damaged his nose in a car accident was given a new one.

Patel’s parents took him to see the doctor of their village in the central state of Madhya Pradesh when he suffered from pneumonia soon after being born. The treatment he received only worsened his condition and he lost his nose due to extensive tissue damage during the process.

The entire operation took about a year to finish.

More than a decade later, a team of doctors in Indore decided to a rare four-phased plastic surgery to give Arun a new nose.

Dr. Ashwini Dash, who served as the lead of the surgical team, said that he was “confident that the new nose would work properly like his other organs.”

The entire process took about a year to finish, Dash said.

In the first phase of the process, a silicon “tissue expander” was applied to Patel’s forehead to create the space to grow a new nose. Afterward, a special chemical was injected to make the tissues expand. The second phase involved the removal of cartilage from his chest to create the new nose, which grew on his forehead over the next three months.

The doctors removed the artificial nose during the third phase, ultimately implanting it on his face. The fourth and final phase of the process was spent to repair his forehead.

Amity

SAN FRANCISCO (Diya TV) — The FBI says, CEO Ridhima Singh of Amity Home Health Care is among the 28 people, that include doctors and nurses, accused in the scheme. Federal prosecutors charged the Bay Area’s largest home health care provider, Amity Home Health Care, with involvement in a kickback scheme that led to $115 million in tainted claims. The complaint said medical professionals received $8 million worth of bribes disguised as payroll, phony medical directorships, reimbursements, entertainment or gifts, in what the Department of Justice said was simply “a cash for patients scheme.”

The man accused of stabbing and killing 62 year old Parmjit Singh in Tracy made his first court appearance. 21 year old Anthony Kreiter-Rhoads of Tracy pleaded not guilty of homicide during his arraignment. Police are still investigating the motive behind the crime.

And Priyanka Chopra & her husband Nick Jonas were named by People Magazine as their pick for ‘Best Dressed of the Year.’

HOUSTON (Diya TV) — “Howdy, #Modi!”, the community event in Houston next month featuring Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is sold out, with more than 50,000 people registering for the program. This community summit will be at NRG Stadium, home of the Houston Texans football team. The expected crowd will be the largest for a foreign leader in the United States other than for Pope Francis.

The Indian government has begun to ease restrictions in most areas of Kashmir, with barricades being lifted to allow more freedom of movement of people and traffic. Markets remained shut and phone and internet services are still suspended. Large security measures are also still in place. Students are being asked to return to school, but most classrooms are still mostly empty.

With a lot of narratives online about what’s going on in Kashmir, we asked Indian Counsel General in San Francisco, Sanjay Panda, to give context and sort out fact from fiction.

Fire Eye, an American-based cyber security firm says hackers broke into a leading India-based healthcare website, stealing nearly seven million records containing patient and doctor information. Fire Eye did not publicly name the website, but says the cyber criminals are mostly China-based and are selling the stolen data underground.
