A Little More About Me
know me better
I established the Springfield Wellness Centre with a goal to treat patients who are suffering from the perils of obesity and other gastrointestinal problems. My team and I make it our priority to provide our patients and their kin with peace of mind. My choice to pursue Gastroenterology with GI Endo-Surgery and Bariatric Surgery was purely out of passion. My undying interest in this field has enabled me to be one of the firsts to start any advanced laparoscopic and bariatric procedures in Chennai. I have successfully carried out numerous GI Endo Surgeries like Piles Surgery, Appendix Removal Surgery, Cancer Removal Surgeries in the GI tract, Gallbladder Removal Surgery, etc.
In addition to my MBBS degree, which I completed in 1994 from Thanjavur Medical College, I also completed my Fellowship in Advanced Laparoscopy trained at Zurich University, Switzerland. Along with that I also completed my Fellowship in Bariatric surgery trained at Minnesota University, the United States, and my Fellowship in Gastrointestinal Endo Surgeries in India.
