I began my post graduate training at Seth G.S Medical College and KEM hospital, an 1,800 bedded super-speciality hospital affiliated to the University of Mumbai, India. The institute, ranked among the top ten medical schools in India, is a tertiary apex care teaching hospital with patients coming from all over the country for treatment.

During the first year of my training I managed antenatal patients and patients in labour and routine gynaecological patients under supervision. By the second year I was assigned independent management of patients and performed major gynaecological surgeries and caesarean sections. During my training I have performed all the major gynaecological surgeries including conservative surgeries for prolapse, abdominal hysterectomies and especially non-descent vaginal hysterectomies. As a post MD registrar I was assigned independent management of all high risk obstetric and training of junior residents. I have also conducted various teaching programs for undergraduate students.

This is a 32 bedded free standing gynecological endoscopy center and takes pride in being a leading center in this field in India performing on an average 400 advanced gynecological laparoscopic surgeries every year with state of the art equipments. It has been featured in the Guinness and Limca Book of Records for the removal of the largest fibroid (3.2kg) to date by laparoscopic myomectomy.

My duties at the center involved assisting in all the minor and major laparoscopic procedures that included myomectomies hysterectomies, metroplasties, adhesiolysis, surgeries for endometriosis, TCRE and performing basic hystero-laparoscopies and pelvi-trainer sessions.

This institute regularly conducts laparoscopic training workshops in affiliation with the pharmaceutical major Johnson &Johnson, which is attended by gynecologists from all over India. During these workshops my duties as a junior faculty member involved taking lectures for the delegates and training them on the pelvitrainer sessions and animate surgeries. This has provided me with an excellent opportunity to improve my own skills in laparoscopic surgery and also to interact with a wide section of gynecologists.

 Clinical Experience

In my Clinical experience, I have performed over 600 major and minor gynecological procedures independently including endoscopic procedures.

My Obstetric training has involved all kinds of difficult caesarean operations, instrumental deliveries and management of all high risk pregnancies.

After my postgraduate studies I have concentrated on Endoscopy as I truly believe that it is the future of all gynecological procedures and patients can benefit the maximum with this method of surgery.

In Endoscopy I have performed all basic surgeries as primary surgeon as follows:

Hysteroscopic procedures

  • Diagnostic Hysteroscopy
  • Hysteroscopic polyp resection
  • Balloon thermal ablation
  • Hysteroscopic endometrial biopsy
  • Hysterocsopic myomectomy
  • Hysteroscopic endometrial resection
  • Hysteroscopic Essure Sterilisation


Level 1 and II

  • Salpingectomy
  • Salpingotomy for ectopic pregnancy
  • Ovarian Cystectomy
  • PCOD drilling,
  • Tubal ligation
  • Morcellation of fibroids

Level III and IV

  • Myomectomy
  • Total laparoscopic hysterectomies
  • Burch colposuspension
  • Excisional endometriosis surgery
  • Adhesiolysis
  • Laparoscopic tubal recanalisation

Level V

  • Total laparoscopic hysterectomies for large uteri( upto 600gms)
  • Laparoscopic paravaginal repairs for anterior cystocele
  • Posterior pelvic floor repair using mesh
  • Ureterolysis for excisional endometriosis
  • Rectovaginal septum adhesiolysis for deep infiltrative endometriosis

As a first assistant I have actively assisted in all major endoscopic surgeries as follows:

  • Large Myomectomy
  • Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy( upto 2000gm)
  • Burch Colposuspension
  • Sacropexy for vault prolapse
  • Adhesiolysis for severe endometriosis involving rectovaginal septum
  • Rectal resection for endometriosis
  • Repair of vesico-vaginal fistula
  • Removal of ovarian ectopic pregnancy
  • Shirodkar’s Sling operation for prolapse
  • Pelvic lymph node dissection
  • Reversal of tubal ligation
  • Complex Total laparoscopic hysterectomies
  • Hysteroscopic myomectomy
  • Trans-cervical resection of endometrium
  • Hysteroscopic adhesiolysis
  • Metroplasties
  • Tubal cannulation

I am competent in operating with video-laparoscopy. I have learned laparoscopic endosuturing as well extracorporeal suturing, with competency in endosuturing.

I have trained in ultrasound and have performed obstetric ultrasounds as well as transvaginal ultrasounds for ovulation studies.

I have performed IUI’s and managed patients on ovulation induction with clomiphene and gonadotrophins.

I have been involved in a lot of teaching of laparoscopy in Australia and would like to continue the same by conducting trainee workshops for Indian doctors with the participation of my colleagues in Australia to further the techinique of laparosocpy as applied to Gynaecology. In future I would like to train myself in Oncological surgery in laparoscopy.
