Background Information 
Professional profile:

I am a trained paediatric surgeon with accredited training in India as well as in the UK and I am on the Specialist Register for Paediatric  Surgery. I have benefit of training with mentors and institutions of varying specialist interests. I chose paediatric surgery as I was fascinated by the range of congenital malformations requiring surgical care and the surgical techniques.

I gained subspecialist training in paediatric Urology at Great Ormond Street and Guy’s Hospital. I am capable of delivering care in emergency as well as elective settings for a range of general paediatric surgical problems such as inguinoscrotal and abdominal pathologies as well as kidney and bladder surgery.

I have a particular interest in management of bladder dysfunction and complex hypospadias repair and minimally invasive surgery. I believe that specialist paediatric work should be well integrated with the general paediatrics and adult services to manage all ongoing needs of the children in collaboration with their family.

Personal profile:

Apart from clinical side, I have a keen interest in medical education, clinical risk management an application of modern technologies to medical field. I have a collaborative approach to work and I am keen to develop adolescent care services for children with previous surgery who need to be monitored in adulthood.

Presently I have taken up oil painting as a serious hobby and I also enjoy classical music and reading.
