He has acquired abilities in dealing with early and advanced tumours during his four years at Tata Hospital. This encompasses both surgical and medical treatment options.
He has received fellowships in the field of Oncosurgery and has a strong interest in Minimal Invasive Techniques (Robotic & Laparoscopy).

Coping with life after
More and more people are surviving their cancer. There are more than 10 million cancer survivors nationwide. You can see a lot of people talking about how to prevent cancer or how to survive during cancer. But no one talks about how our life changes drastically after cancer has been removed from our body. Patients who have survived cancer are clueless whether they need extra special surveillance for cancer recurrence or for new cancers that might come up. They also need to know if there might be some late effects from the treatment, could there be an injury to the heart muscle, are they at higher risk for osteoporosis. Many patients who have survived cancer have suggested that P53 Cancer Clinic is among the best cancer hospital in Mumbai.
