Cytology Clinic

Bombay branch was started in 1968 at Cama & Albless Hospital. After celebrating the Diamond Jubilee the funds raised were utilized for this purpose. The project was spear headed by Dr. S. Aptekar, Dr. W. Fernandes, Dr. Kashibai Sathe & Dr. Usha Saraiya who had recently joined the staff & was trained as a Cytologist.

The idea was to give a free Cancer Detection test to all the women attending the OPD & also to educate the women and create awareness about cancer.

The clinic received financial & logistic support from many organizations particularly Cancer Patients Aid Association and Indian Council of Medical Research.

Gradually, the activities of the clinic increased & it became an Internationally known centre. Dysplasia Clinic was started, Colposcopy was included & many camps were held in & around Bombay.

The teaching & training of Cytology & Colposcopy were its main objective. Annual courses are still being held for Doctors & Technicians, Pathologists & Staff of Government District Hospitals.

The staff have given devoted services. Many Scientific articles, books, and articles in by press have been published.

With the active support of AMWI Bombay Branch, Staff of Cama & Albless Hospital & many philanthropic organizations it is hoped that the Cytology Clinic will continue to give valuable services to the community.
