Finding life’s meaning in charitable medicine
San Diego County health professionals provide free care at home and overseas

Doctors, nurses, others thankful for chance to provide a wide range of care at no cost.

Dr. Harish Hosalkar doesn’t like to use the phrase “charitable medicine.”

Maybe it’s because he views the free surgeries he provides in India as a privilege — not a grand gesture or an obligation — to help resilient patients who lack money, access to quality medical care or both.

Possibly it’s because he sees his fellowship program, which gives complimentary training to young doctors from various countries, as reciprocity for the instruction and mentoring he received from his own teachers.

Perhaps it’s because his work fulfills a dream, a goal, a love he’s had since age 7, when he first wanted to become an orthopedic surgeon.

“Call it God or fate or destiny. I’m fortunate to have skills that help change a person’s life by making them functional again,” said Hosalkar, who runs an orthopedic practice and performs most his operations at Paradise Valley Hospital in National City, Scripps Mercy Hospital in Hillcrest and Tri-City Medical Center in Oceanside.

His dream resulted from a strategy of fusing two key influences: that of his father, a civil engineer, and that of his physician aunts and uncles.

“My mind became interested in putting things together like an engineer would, but my heart was in medicine, which has its potential of making things whole again. I decided that orthopedics would be the right combination of those things,” he recalled.

He completed his medical school education in India at age 20, obtained his medical degree at 22 and became an orthopedic surgeon at 26.

From the outset of his medical education, he felt compelled to use his expanding knowledge to aid people in India’s villages and slums. He volunteered at camps for children with polio and cerebral palsy. He went door to door in various neighborhoods to offer free education on family planning. He stepped up to vaccinate families for the plague, again at no charge, during an outbreak.

Eventually, Hosalkar made his way to London and the United States to further hone his professional experience. Now he lives in Scripps Ranch with his wife and two children.

At 43, he feels fortunate to give back in two main ways: as a surgeon and as a mentor.

Hosalkar travels to India twice a year, for 10 to 14 days each time, so he can perform orthopedic surgeries at no cost to patients chosen by his charitable partners. He typically does procedures to preserve ailing joints, reconstruct limbs, address issues related to cerebral palsy and lengthen limbs for people with lopsided arms or legs.

During these trips, he holds lectures and workshops for medical students and less experienced physicians.

Back in San Diego, he enjoys teaching the young surgeons in his ongoing fellowship program. If a trainee lacks housing, he’s been known to let that person live in his home for months.

Hosalkar also uses Skype, FaceTime and email to extend charitable services to his affiliates in India, from reading radiologic images to consulting on complex cases.

In about a decade, once his children have enrolled in college, Hosalkar intends to limit his practice to three days per week so he can increase his charitable activities.

“I’m thankful for the medical skills that I possess, and I look forward to rehabilitating more people so they can regain full-functioning lives again,” he said. “What I’ve been able to do is just a start.”

REALIZING A DREAM…
HOUSE OF INDIA cottage at Balboa Park!!!

Our Indian community has been presented with a very unique opportunity. We have been invited by the city of San Diego to build a cottage in the name of "House of India". The city has allotted land in its prime location among the museums and historic attractions in a park that is a century old.

Please view the YouTube video attached to get a glimpse of the project. Your help in this endeavor is truly appreciated. Also, kindly help spread the message about the once in a lifetime opportunity that our Indian community has in contributing to the San Diego community at large, by having this permanent monument built in the biggest urban park in the country, our own Balboa Park!

As with most projects, a handful of volunteers have been working diligently over the past 10 years to establish a representation/platform for the Indian community to enable exchange of culture, rich history etc., through the city of San Diego. We have made our mark by being inducted as a permanent member of the House of Pacific Relations at Balboa Park [HPR]. We have been actively participating in major events in Balboa Park such as December Nights, Ethnic Food Fair, Lawn Program, Taste of Asia and many others. We have worked with the museums in Balboa Park whenever they have sought our assistance in coordinating events revolving around the theme of India. Within the HPR is also the "Queens Organization" comprising of the queen & princesses (elementary – high school ages) from HoI and the other member countries of HPR. Through the Queens Organization, our children become ambassadors exchanging, sharing and exploring different cultures. They participate in a variety of cultural and charitable activities.

The last few years we have also independently organized “Dandiya Under the Stars” on the Federal Lawn of Balboa Park. At this year’s event on 09/26/15, we anticipate a huge attendance from all the communities in San Diego.

To realize this unique project, a onetime fund raising campaign is underway.  There will be not be any recurrent request for funds, we will continue to function & fulfill the requirements of HPR just as we have in the past 10 years. Ground breaking is slated to happen in Dec ’15/ Jan ’16.

House of India is a 501(c)3 organization, tax exemption # 26-3230127. All donations to this cause will be fully tax deductible. Donations could be made online by visiting: houseofindia.org. Checks maybe made to "House of India" & mailed to 957, Lomas Santa Fe Dr., Solana Beach, CA 92075. Kindly mention SAPI in the memo/info section.

For any questions/info please do not hesitate to contact me, Anu, directly at 858-449-2255, or via e-mail: [javascript protected email address].

Greetings and Happy Holidays on behalf of the San Diego Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (SAPI)!

At the outset I would like to thank all of you, including the Executive committee and the Board of Directors for considering electing me as the President for the forthcoming term. I am honored to accept this position and will do everything in my power to carry on the torch in a meaningful way and help move the organization forward with team-work. My involvement over the past several years has given me a lot of insight into how much hard work was put in by our President Anantram Reddy and all Past-Presidents, Executive committee members, Board of Directors in bringing this association to where it is today. There is no question that I have big shoes to fill in- but I look forward to teamwork from all of you to build SAPI in to a stronger organization as we all move forward.

Best wishes for a Happy new year to all,

Proposition 46 is another costly ballot initiative funded by the special interests with a price tag Californians can’t afford

Trial lawyers out to profit from medical lawsuits carelessly threw together Prop 46 without any concern for your pocketbook, your health care, or your privacy. The main provision of Prop 46 will quadruple the current $250,000 MICRA cap on non-economic damages in medical lawsuits to $1.1 million with annual increases going forward. If lawyers get their way, medical lawsuits and jury awards will skyrocket – leading to a big increase in health care costs.

These higher costs will be passed to every purchaser and provider of health care: state and local governments, employers, employees, consumers and taxpayers. Here’s why a broad coalition of doctors, community clinics and health centers, local governments, public safety, business, taxpayer and labor unions opposes Prop 46.

Costly for state & Local governments

According to California’s independent, non-partisan Legislative Analyst’s Office (LAO) Prop 46 could increase costs for state and local governments by “several hundred million dollars annually.”

The LAO warns “even a small percentage change in health care costs could have a significant effect on government health care spending.”

In an effort to get more “No On 46” yard signs into physicians’ hands and minimize travel, the following physicians have volunteered to serve as local distribution points for “No On 46” yard signs.

If you haven’t already picked up your “No On 46” yard sign, please feel free to do so at any of the below locations.

Call ahead to verify they still have signs, to verify their office location, and to verify they’ll be open when you get there!

Though we want to get all our remaining signs out and into highly visible locations, please only take what you need so that we spread them around.
