“The doctors there will assess you if it is a case that is ready for surgery and once all other parameters have been concluded, we will get the surgery done.”

“It is possible for someone to have, for example, a cataract, and the cataract is not yet matured, we will still enroll the person. We will give the person a date for when the cataract will mature.

“For example, if you want to remove a fibroid, when you see the doctor and the doctor says your electrolyte is a bit high or your blood pressure is a little bit high, it needs to be controlled before you can be taken in for surgery.”
