Raipur: Health department will provide a complete package of angioplasty for patients of heart in Chhattisgarh government hospitals. In which hip and knee replacement ie knee transplant will also be free. Only 35 percent of the cost of surgery is being provided.

Patients are getting only 35 percent of such a package. 17 thousand are received for angioplasty, that is, 33 thousand are being provided for hip and knee replacement. These funds are so low that patients have to buy many necessary equipment like implants, stents, rods, screws, artificial veins with their money, poor patients are not getting treatment. The benefit of the government's free scheme is not available. Top officers of the Health Department have started the process of change in this package. In addition to angioplasty, hip and knee replacement, brain angiography, fomentation and chemotherapy of cancer patients, cardio thoracic and vesicular surgery, neuro-surgery patients are also getting half-incomplete package of the government's free scheme.
