Brief Profile

My training program exposed me to various disciplines of surgical oncology including Head & Neck Oncology, Gynaecologic Oncology, Genitourinary, Musculoskeletal and Gastrointestinal Oncology. The training program was a structured one in which the first two years were dedicated to actively assisting in all major surgical oncology procedures and performing minor surgeries. In the final year I performed major surgeries like oral resections, neck dissections, Wertheim’s hysterectomies, mastectomies and laparotomies. I was also trained in radiation oncology and medical oncology principles during the training period.
