Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Narahari "Why did you chose surgery, is a commonly asked question. I chose surgery as it provides the utmost satisfaction when a problem is fixed. It is a privilege to operate on a fellow human being and I respect the trust placed in me. I believe it is important for the patient to understand the procedure and I cater time to explain all details. My association with teaching facilitated learning and incorporating recent advances and cutting edge technology in Laparoscopy into my practice."
