I am a local lad who finished schooling and pre-university college in Belgaum. I did my undergraduate course (M.B.B.S.) from BIMS, Belgaum. I went on to pursue my post graduation (M.D.) in Radiology from one of the top central institutes in India – Vardhman Mahavir Medical College & Safdarjung Hospital, New Delhi. Subsequently, I pursued my superspecialization in Interventional Radiology from the premier Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER), Chandigarh and belonged to the first batch of D.M. Interventional Radiology at PGI.

My areas of expertise include:

  • Endovascular management of peripheral arterial disease
  • Pinhole percutaneous ablation for cancers of the liver, kidney, lung, pancreas, bone
  • Endovascular management of varicose veins
  • Hepatobiliary interventions: TIPSS, DIPSS, BRTO, Hepatic vein stenting, portal vein interventions
  • Gastrointestinal interventions for bleeding
  • Genitourinary interventions for persistent haematuria, prostate artery embolization, uterine artery embolization
  • Bronchial and pulmonary artery embolization
  • Ultrasound and CT guided procedures including drainages, biopsy and FNAC.
  • Uterine artery embolization for post partum bleeding and fibroids
  • Endovascular management of aortic dissection and aneurysm
  • Intravascular sampling in endocrine disorders
  • Percutaneous biliary and urinary tract drainage and stenting
  • Management of peripheral and pulmonary arteriovenous malformation (AVM)
  • Dialysis fistula interventions
  • Peripheral and central lines, Chemoport placement
  • Genicular artery embolization
  • Liver cancer interventions: ablations, TACE, TARE
  • Pre-operative and palliative embolization

I hope to utilise the best training that I underwent at these top institutes in providing better care for the people of my native.
