THE JOURNEY SO FAR:
Dr.Kishore Nadkarni (Surgeon) and Dr.Purnima Nadkarni (Obst-Gynec) both Gold medalists from Seth G. S. Medical College and KEM Hospital, Mumbai decided to leave the lure of city life and go to a rural place to start their career. After working for 3 years in a local Trust Hospital in Killa-Pardi – a Taluka place in Valsad District of South Gujarat, they set up their First hospital – “Nadkarni Hospital” at Killa Pardi in 1984. This was a maternity and surgical hospital which catered to the needs of rural South Gujarat. The development of infertility practice took place over the next 10 years, the doctors went overseas to U.K, USA, Germany and Australia to acquire skills and the “Test Tube Baby Centre (IVF-ICSI) was inaugurated in 1995 at Killa Pardi. In the next 10 years more than 1000 babies were born from this centre by IVF & ICSI techniques.
