Mr Aniruddha Chakravarti qualified as a medical graduate in 1990 and attained postgraduate training in general surgery before embarking onto an extensive training in urology. Amidst his 12 years of experience in general urology, Mr Chakravarti has developed a special interest in laser surgery of the prostate, stone disease and laparoscopic management of upper urinary tract conditions. He has received intensive laparoscopy training from the European Institute of Telesurgery in Strasbourg, France, and has obtained a Diploma in Laparoscopic Surgery from the Institute and has had intensive training in laparoscopy during the later part of his higher urological training.
