Varanasi: After the media showed and published the reports of alleged negligence in carrying out laproscopic tubectomy surgery, Uttar Pradesh Health Minister Ahmed Hasan on Friday ordered probe on the matter.

Nearly 73 women were operated by a single doctor and also there were no proper arrangements which are essential and required for patients, ahead of conducting their operation at a primary health centre in the prime minister's constituency- Varanasi.


According to media reports, laproscopic tubectomy surgery was allegedly conducted on nearly 73 women in four hours between 12 PM to 4 PM on Thursday by a single doctor at a Primary Health Centre (PHC) in Chiraigaon in Varanasi here and the guidelines and procedures outlined for such operations were not properly followed.

Women were also made to lie down on the floor at the PHC, according to the reports.

According to the central government's guidelines, a medical team cannot conduct more than 30 laparoscopic tubectomies in a day, with three separate laparoscopes — that means not more than 10 tubectomies with a single instrument, as each instrument needs to be properly sterilised after every operation.

The guidelines state that if there are additional surgeons, instruments and supplies, the number of operations per team can be increased, but in no case should it exceed 50.

Even then, it puts a cap of 10 operations by a single surgeon with a single instrument.

State BJP chief, Laxmi Kant Bajpai and Congress leader Rita Bahuguna Joshi demanded strict action against those medical officers responsible for conducting the laproscopic tubectomy surgery here.
