About Me

I’m a general and laparoscopic surgeon based out of Bangalore, India. I specialize in day care surgery, with specific interests in hernia, piles and mini-laparoscopy.

I’ve trained in Day Care Surgery and 3D mesh device for hernia repair at Day Hospital in Italy, and have received laparoscopic experience from University Hospital Essen, Germany.

At present, I lead the department of Day Care Surgery at Ramakrishna Group of Hospitals in Bangalore.

I helped develop the Hitech Hernia Program, an advanced hernia treatment procedure pioneered by the Hitech Hernia Centre, Bangalore.

 

 

Day Care Surgery

I’m a passionate advocate of Day Care Surgery. It’s a form of surgery in which a patient is hospitalized only for the duration of the surgery and is discharged on the same day (after a few hours of recuperation time).

We use special surgical and anaesthesia techniques to minimize pain during and after the procedure, enabling the patient to recover rapidly. It’s also cost-effective, and saves the patient time.

I’ve seen that when patients recover at home sleeping in their own bed, attended to by a dear one, it works wonders.

Ailments and Surgeries

Through these pages, I shall try to address the questions patients usually have about the fields I specialize in. Technological advancements, implications, side-effects and what to look for.

“Blood in my stools! I have piles!” When someone sees blood in the pan, has pain while passing stools or feels a swelling in the anal region, the first thought is of piles. Piles symptoms might not always mean piles. The truth is, piles is just one of many conditions that affect the anal region.       Piles, Anal Fistula and Anal Fissures are not the same. They are different pathologies and differ in their symptoms and methods of treatment. Let’s take them one at a time.   1.

Hitech Hernia Surgery : The role of the light weight mesh

This article discussing the latest advancements in Hernia Mesh technology was published in the Times of India on March 24th, 2013. What is a Hernia? A hernia usually shows up as a abnormal ‘bump’ in the abdomen area. It is caused by the protrusion of an internal organ through an abnormal opening in the abdominal wall. Hernias can be painless for years and may become symptomatic suddenly leading to life threatening complications such as strangulation. The Society of Surgery for the Alimentary Tract recommends seeking surgical evaluation within one month of detection of a groin...
