“A large number of patients from small towns have to travel, sometimes hundreds of kilometres, to seek quality surgical care in nearby metro cities,” Dr. Garima Sawhney, co-founder, Pristyn Care, was quoted as saying said in the statement. “We aim to bridge this accessibility gap in the surgery space and take superior quality surgeries to patients in tier 2 & 3 cities of the nation.”

It will also use a part of funds in strengthening and modernizing partner-hospital infrastructure and training surgeons. It aims to increase its footprint to over 50 cities and 1,000 surgical centers by March 2022.

Currently, the company operates more than 150 clinics and 700 partner hospitals with a panel of over 300 doctors. The company boasts that it has already scaled five times since January 2021. It also expects to be profitable in the next 12-18 months.
