EDUCATION PROGRAMS

COCHLEAR IMPLANT PROGRAMME AT MAX HEALTH CARE SAKET
This has been my strength in the last ten years of my practice. I have been the founder resident member involved in the starting up of the cochlear implant program at MAMC & ASSO LNH way back during my residency days from 2004-to 2010. My interest grew with the inspiration & dream of my guru DR A K AGARWAL & I found my teacher in cochlear training DR MILIND KIRTANE who inspired me to take up cochlear implant surgery & start a program in 2010.

Since then I have successfully done around 250 cochlear implants from various countries in the world.

The Cochlear program at max smart is one of the most successful running private programs achieving close to 100 % results in terms of surgical & speech rehabilitation success. It also takes pride in that a patient story got included under the “SEVABHAV” initiative who came for cochlear implant surgery in Pakistan.

Various Deafness & Ent opd are successfully running at Max opd centers at Srinagar/ Gorakhpur/ Lucknow where Dr. Sumit Mrig visits every month for screening pts for cochlear implant & other ENT surgery at Max smart.

I have been instrumental in establishing 1st international Ci program in Kenya through its Max opd center in Nairobi & also started ENT & Cochlear implant program in Uzbekistan/ Kazakhstan.

Apart  from this successful cochlear surgeries have been done from various countries across the globe including pts from Kenya / Sudan/ Rwanda / Afghanistan / Pakistan / Bangladesh / Iraq/ Turkmenistan / Russia / Ethiopia & Nigeria . Efforts are being done to collaborate with a hospital in Kenya to make it a hub center for Ci Sg for entire East Africa under the umbrella of Max healthcare. 

In the period last ten years I  have established myself as one of the youngest COCHLEAR IMPLANT  Sg in Asia & have done successful 250 cochlear implant surgeries in children & adults. With the efforts, the cochlear program at Max smart is now on the list of the top 3 centers in DELHI to offer Cochlear implant surgeries. 

In terms of academic excellence, I am a mentor surgeon to many centers across India to start CI prog, also been a mentor Sg to ADIP centers through govt of India under the ministry of social empowerment & justice. In the last few years, he has been an invited faculty & has represented India at Cochlear congresses at LISBON( ESPCI), CYPRUS (APSCI), CAPE TOWN & DUBAI ( World congress of Ci in emerging countries). 

He has also been awarded as a Fellow of the otolaryngologic society of DUBAI last year. 

I have been instrumental in framing guidelines for cochlear implant surgery for the prestigious AOI( Association of otolaryngologists of India) & CIGI (Cochlear implant group of India ) this year. He has also written various chapters on vertigo in books published internationally. 

SNORING & SLEEP APNEA PROGRAMME 

I routinely run a clinic for snoring & sleep apnea patients in the pediatric & adult populations. I have received my sleep apnea training at SINGAPORE GENERAL HOSPITAL for snoring  & I am comfortable using radiofrequency / coblation devices to treat this problem. This treatment generally runs with a protocol of undergoing sleep study / DISE( drug-induced sleep endoscopy) & staged procedures depending upon the site of the blockage. For more detail kindly read the blog on OSA & view video links of patient experiences undergoing OSA treatment.

SIALENDOSCOPY TREATMENT – 

For endoscopic management of salivary gland stones without removing the gland.

I have recently started my Sialendoscopy program for endoscopic management of salivary gland stones without removing the gland. I have received my training at CEMAST center Mumbai & I am comfortable in doing both diagnostic & therapeutic procedures for the removal of submandibular & parotid gland stones. 

COBLATION ADENOTONSILLECTOMY 

I have received my training at Singapore general hospital & MCD hospital in Dalian, China for the use of coblation in the treatment of adenotonsillar hypertrophy & sleep apnea problems.  Since 2013 I have experienced more than 500 adenotonsillectomy done through coblation which is a bloodless & relatively painless procedure to remove the tonsils & adenoids.

This technique fairly assures no recurrence & is very safe even in small children.

ENDOSCOPIC NASAL, SINUS & SKULL BASE SURGERY 

I regularly perform endoscopic sinonasal procedures. I generally use the latest Medtronic microdebriders & burr system in performing basic & advanced endonasal procedures like FESS, MEDIAL MAXILLECTOMY, ORBITAL DECOMPRESSIONS, SINONASAL TUMOUR EXCISIONS, CSF LEAKS, etc. 

I also team up with neurosurgeon colleagues in the treatment of anterior skull base lesions/ pituitary tumors.

OTOLOGY & NEURO-OTOLOGY

My passion for ENT is driven by hardcore primary & revision ear surgeries. I am quite comfortable doing regular ear surgeries like tympanoplasty, mastoidectomy, stapedotomy, and revision mastectomies with ossiculoplasty. 

I have also had the experience of lateral skull base surgery like gloms tumors. 

HEAD & NECK SURGERY

I have expertise in head & neck surgeries & I am very comfortable operating on thyroid, salivary gland tumors, cancers of the oral cavity & the voice box. I & team work closely with the oncosurgery team at MAX SMART in advance head & neck cancer along with reconstructive procedures. It s well complemented by the Radiation & Medical oncology team at Max Saket making the ONCOLOGY CARE one of the best in Asia.
