Cartel-ization of Medical Science which can put hawala rackets to shame!

Cartel-ization of Medical Science which can put hawala rackets to shame!

Compare the Clinical Practice guidelines of Cochlear Implant Group of India, with other international Cochlear Implant safety guidelines to understand how few members of CIGI have cartelized the medical science to make quick bucks out of poor deaf patient’s disability and restrict other ENT surgeons.   These Clinical Practice Guidelines are one sided and have not been approved by the General Body of the CIGI, as of today.  The successive presidents of CIGI, hoodwink saying these are not mandatory. If they are not mandatory why do they keep those ‘restrictive guidelines’ in the first place?   The CIGI Guidelines do not have the backing of any references, clinical studies or citations.  Padmashri Dr. Milind V Kirtane (Past president of the CIGI)  and Dr. Sunil Dutt, FRCS (Founder of the CIGI) have failed to provide me any reply when they were questioned about the same, as of today.  What is appalling is, while they showed a keen interest in including restrictive guidelines, they did not put guidelines to safeguard the interests of the Patients undergoing Cochlear Implantation, such as Device safety, longtime maintenance, annual audit, maintaining CI registry, device failure, unlike other international guidelines.  This clearly reflects crookedness of the people whose only motive is profiteering.

Here are the various Cochlear Implant Guidelines: 

Clinical Practice Guidelines of CIGI.

British Cochlear Implant Group Quality 

Australia – Clinical Guidelines for Adult Cochlear Implantation.

Australia – Clinical Guidelines for Pediatric Cochlear Implantation.

American Cochlear Implant Alliance – Support and Clinical Guidance.
