After having worked in UK for over 15 years, I decided to come back to India in 2012 & realized the need for superspecialisation in our country where Breast cancer has now become the commonest cancer amongst women. My mantra is “Less is more”. So we do not need to do huge disfiguring & debilitating surgeries like radical mastectomies anymore. Majority of the patients can be managed with lumpectomies & sentinel node biopsies & be discharged home in day with minimal medications & pain & back to their daily routine.
My happy & motivated patients keep me going. By smiling & staying positive through the grueling treatment, they encourage me through the challenges.
