Respiratory Medicine


English, Hindi, Marathi, Konkani, Kannada

I have completed 30 years of service in Respiratory Medicine. I was instrumental in starting the Respiratory Medicine department in the hospital. Due to continued efforts, the department was recognised for starting post- graduation M.D. course in the year 2002 and this gradually increased to 5 candidates per year. I started various procedures at OPD levels like Bronchoscopy and Thoracoscopy. Allergy testing and Immunotherapy was also started during this time and gradually patients were benefitted from this various procedures. We successfully conducted State level Pulmonologists Conference in 2018 at Belgaum and workshops were conducted at KLES Hospital. I have several Workshops at National and International levels to update the clinical skills in various procedures and this is being applied in day- to- day management of the Respiratory cases either at OPD level or for inpatients. I attend the scientific conferences either National or International regularly to update the knowledge in Respiratory Medicine.
