Dr. D. C. Patel

Have successfully treated around 16975 patients of snakebite in last 30 years with almost 99 % of Success Rate which is highest in India and may be in all over the world. Done single handedly in my own private hospital.

Snakebite is an emergency associated with high mortality. Being a surgeon and being a tribal person and born and grown up in rural tribal area, I can understand the problem of snake bite very well. I am an eye witness of seeing death of victims due to snake bite. From that experience, since childhood I had decided to work on snake bite after becoming Doctor and decided to do work in rural area only. And finally started hospital in Dharampur, district - Valsad, Gujarat.

Since last 4 years snake bite awareness program is going on. It is for community public, school, collage for identification of snake, occurrence of incidence, prevention of snack bite, if bite occurred what to do and not do, primary signs and symptoms of snake bite.

Ultimately aim is prevention of snake bite and identification of snake by this we can conserve the snake. Because snakes are friends of farmers and play important role in nature.

Aim of achieving o.o % mortality due to snake bite by establishing of country’s four corner venom collection centre and manufacturing of antivenin injection from same venom and use of same injection in same territory.

Happy to announced that Gujarat government by department of forest of Gujarat decided to establish snake research institute at Dharampur, district - Valsad, Gujarat.
