Review dates were assigned for each patient, starting from November 15th and till the end of January 2011. Following an evaluation on the date of review, surgery cases (where required) will be taken up, with consent of the patient and/or relatives.

YFS volunteers shall be monitoring the follow-ups, ensuring that the patients report for review and tracking course of treatments decided.
