As a paediatric surgeon, operating on children, Mr Patwardhan aims to perform any procedure using the least invasive method possible. This benefits the child with faster recovery, minimum post-operative pain and minimal scarring.
Mr Patwardhan has been practising in this speciality, firstly as a trainee and later as consultant, for nearly 16 years. He sees patients with a variety of pathology and will always explain the condition in a way that all parents will understand. In Mr Patwardhan's NHS practice he deals with new-born babies born with conditions that require surgery and also treats children up to the age of 16 with surgical problems.
Mr Patwardhan is the designated Breast Surgeon for children in Leicester.
