Completed my fellowship at The Academic Medical Center , University Hospital , Amsterdam, the Netherlands . The AMC University Hospital is a tertiary referral center & a center of excellence in Urology.It is one of the best hospital in Netherlands & in the European Union. It is recognized by the Endo-Urology Society for a fellowship programme under the guidance of Prof. J.J.M.C.H. de la rosette.

During my fellowship I have been trained exclusively in the subspecialty of Endo-Urology. Apart from the routine Endo-urological cases like VIU,BNI,TUIP/TURP/TURBT, URS AND PCNL, I have been trained in complex and challenging cases like

  • Laser surgeries for BPH of the prostate(Green light LASER HPS and XPS), Holmium LASER(HoLEP), and also Biolitec LASER)
  • Flexible Cystoscopy, Ureteroscopy and Nephroscopy for diagnostic and thearapeautic procedures for low grade TCC in the lower and upper urinary tract using the Holmium LASER.
  • Flexible Ureteroscopy(RIRS) for stone disease and management of stones in special situations like calyceal diverticulum, stone disease in anomalous kidneys.
  • Supine PCNL for high risk and moribund patients who cannot be given the prone position combined with flexible URS retrograde.
  • Complex cases of stone disease like stones in Urinary diversions and in solitary kidneys.
