Money motivating doctors to do unnecessary cesareans in Kashmir: DAK

Srinagar: Raising concern over unnecessary cesarean deliveries that have reached epidemic proportions in Kashmir, Doctors Association Kashmir (DAK) Monday said that majority of these surgeries are done for financial gains.
Terming this practice as unethical, President DAK Dr Nisar ul Hassan in a statement said that doctors are motivated by money to perform needless surgical deliveries.
“There is a well-oiled nexus between private hospitals and doctors that is pushing patients into cesareans they don’t need,” he said and added that a perception has been generated that cesareans are better than normal deliveries.
“In order to convince perfectly healthy women to opt for elective cesarean section before their due date, doctors tell them about so called benefits of the surgery,” Dr Nisar said.
