Bharat Taparia

I have great pleasure in introducing Dr. O.P. Kapoor, the editor of this monograph. He is a senior consultant physician. Till 1987, he was professor of medicine at the Grant Medical College and J. J. Group of Hospitals, Bombay. He opted for retirement at the age of 55,but continued to be a visiting consultant at Bombay Hospital Institute of Medical Sciences and Jaslok Hospital and Research Centre.

As a medical author his academic contribution to the medical literature is comprehensive and extensive. His guides for general practitioners are being read by over 1 lakh practitioners all over India. The hall-mark of his academic career was the publication of his masterly monograph on "Amoebic Liver Abscess" for which he received excellent reviews from the medical journals all over the world and it has now been cited in the prestigious Oxford Text book of Medicine as a reference book for further reading. His book on "Common Chronic Disease Patterns in Arabian Gulf,Saudi Arabia and Yemen" has been not only recommended to all expatriate doctors working in Gulf countries but the local Arab doctors consider it an encyclopaedia in day to day practice. As the editor of the Bombay Hospital Journal, he is also responsible for revolutionizing and bringing the journal to the international standard. He is the author of the famous "Kapoor's Family Medical Guide" which has been brought out in Hindi and Urdu Editions also.

The author, a gifted teacher, has become a living legend in the city medical colleges. He was a recipient of the prestigious Dr. B.C. Roy National Award for "Eminent Medical Teacher" in 1981.
