Thoubal, May 22 : Operation Theatre service at the District Hospital Thoubal began functioning again from today after a brief break of around 20 days. On the first day of restarting business, a LSCS and an orthopedic patient were successfully operated upon by a team of medicine experts comprising of health director Dr K Lokendro, Additional health director H Ranjit, P Shyamsunder and OT in charge of the district hospital Dr H Subhashchandra. Operation facility at the district hospital was opened for the patients on August 28, 2013 and 100 operations were performed in a month on an average at the hospital. However, the facility was closed at the hospital from May 1 last after essential equipment including those for applying anesthetic broke down. The machines were ultimately repaired and the two operations listed today were performed successfully. The long consumption of time before the reopening of operation facility was attributed to absence of engineers to fix the dragger machine after the broken parts were procured from markets outside the state.
