I completed my MBBS from Govt Medical College, Miraj, Maharashtra. During my internship I realized that Ophthalmology was the subject was keen to persue.
I completed my DOMS from LIONS NAB Hospital, Miraj, Maharashtra. The institute has a huge workload with 50-60 cases being performed per day. It was the best place to get adequate clinical and surgical experience, under the guidance of experienced and dedicated teachers.
I then went on to complete my posts for DNB Ophthalmology(Delhi) and FCPS (Mumbai) at B Y L Nair Hospital, Mumbai. Here I was trained in phacoemusification and other surgeries under the expert and able guidance of Prof Anjali D Nicholson. The values and training passed on by her have been instrumental in shaping my career.
I worked as an observer in Oculoplasty with Dr. Ashok Grover in Delhi.After completing my post- graduation I moved to Pune, Maharashtra where I have been practicing and am attached to various hospitals as a Consultant since 2008.
I have done my fellowship in Medical Retina from H V Desai Hospital, Pune. I have also worked with Prof Caroline Chee in NUH Singapore in Medical Retina. My stay in Singapore helped me get a better insight into the treatment of diabetic retinopathy, age related macular degeneration and other retinal disorders.
