Dr Lalit Mohan Pant, World's Fastest Surgeon from Khantoli, Uttarakhand डॉ ललित

(1/22) > >>

एम.एस. मेहता /M S Mehta 9910532720:


It gives me immense pleasure to introduce Dr Lalit Mohan Pant in the forum. Dr Pant is world's fastest surgeon who also holds a world record for sterilizing 816 people in one day. Pant ji presently  a government Doctor in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh but originally hails from Khantoli, District Bageshwar Uttarakhand.


In a country plagued by the raging problem of population explosion, Dr Lalit Mohan Pant, in a unique feat of service to the nation and society, has performed more than 3,81,000 sterilization operations, without any mortality, significant morbidity and any litigation - largest number done by a single individual in the world.  It is estimated that one sterilization operation prevents 2.7 births. Thus Dr Pant has been successful in preventing 8,18,1000 + births. A laparoscopic sterilization orNSV saves 12 man-days as compared to conventional methods. Dr Pant, thus, has saved 36,36,000 + man-days. He has been successful in preventing a proportionate number of feticides, infant mortality (upto20%) and maternal mortality (upto1/3 rd) ( WHO).Being in the government service, he decided to utilize fully the platform, potentials and infrastructure of government machinery to achieve his goal, at the same time keeping central and state government policies and directives in mind. Instead of sitting at his headquarters and waiting for such patients to walk- in into his hospital, he decided to approach and offer the facilities at their doorsteps – Unto The Last.

Dr Pant acquired extraordinary skill and competence in the procedure – he can do a laparoscopic TT in 20 seconds flat.  The camps are truly a mammoth affair – up to 600 sterilization operations performed on a single day in such camps! The largest number being 816 in one day, 27578 surgeries and  627 camps in one year – an accomplishment which says a lot about his work and mission - and a achievement which has found him a place in the Limca Book of World Records.The numbers assume greater significance if we look at the hardships faced by Dr Pant to achieve this figure.

Dr. Pant has made his achievements against all odds.  One big obstacle he faced was the fear in the population that a laparoscope may “burn their blood” or may induce ‘heat’ in their body”. It took him great efforts to conquer their myths.  Another obstacle was working in the most remote areas of the state, without an adequately trained and motivated staff; in the most primitive conditions – even without electricity ‘candle light operation camps’ at times, a challenging and daunting task.This year in Feb he performed a unique surgery –Non micro-surgical immediate post -op reversal of lap TT in a sterilization camp at remote community center .It was a successful first in world attempt appreciated by international community of surgeons .He traveled miles together [on an average 6,000 kms per month or 72,000 kms per year or 2 circles round the Earth every year!]  in rural areas, where the roads were practically non-existent. In these remote areas, he attended 3-6 camps in a day. 31 years ago when he started working on his project, the male participation was almost zero. Now, up to 60% of his patients are males undergoing sterilization. Dr Pant could change the scene of male & female acceptance of sterilization operation at his center through his services and direct approach to masses. The ratio is M:F:: 2042:1425 at his center against 0.8 %all over country .The figure of  2042 NSV operations is a highest figure ever achieved by a  surgeon in a year, in an institution, in the country. Till date he has more than 11,000 NSV operations are to his credit. This is one of the comments received from Mr MM Upadhyay a senior IAS officer in Govt. -You are a remarkable person who always shows that human capacity knows no limits. Congratulations! I feel proud that the state has a gem like you. Wish you achieve all that you aspire in this year. Keep going.As the target of population stabilization cannot be achieved until there is adequate number of service providers, he devotes time in training his colleagues. He is in-charge NSV resource center which is recognized as center of excellence for NSV training by Govt.of India MOH&FW .

He is also involved in research work under the able guidance of- Prof. Dr. RCM Kaza Master trainer, related to NSV, particularly to achieve immediate sterilization and reversible vas occlusion technique.

Dr Edward *ted, Gynecologist and Advisor to the Royal College of Surgeons, Northampton, U.K. was amazed to see him performing the task. He remarked - “Dr Pant’s work is unbelievable. He is doing extraordinary work for his people and the country.” Dr Pant has also contributed, by virtue of his being member of various NGO’s, to the treatment, welfare and rehabilitation of leprosy patients, destitute, physically challenged and cancer patients.  He also has positive and significant contribution in the field of detection and treatment of anemia in women, blindness eradication, health education and mass awareness. He also contributes towards education of under privileged children. For the past 31 years he has been working in the remotest tribal areas of Madhya Pradesh. Now with his headquarters at Indore [Central India], he is the only laparoscopic surgeon authorized by the Government of Madhya Pradesh to work throughout the state. Village folks know him fondly as ‘Doorbeen wale baba’ – ‘Sage with a Telescope.’ This says everything about the impact of his work on the masses and of course, his popularity.   He has also started a movement of ‘Hum Paanch” or ‘We five’. The idea behind is to make a chain of people to market good ideas, thoughts or experience sharing, without involving money or self-interest. It is high time we recognize his selfless effort towards humanity – especially the tribal and poor people and women. A service rendered without any expectation or consideration.
