A few words about Dr. Amit Agarwal
Dr. Amit Agarwal is a General and Laparoscopic surgeon based in Delhi. He is currently working as a consultant in B.L. Kapur Super specialty Hospital, Delhi. After having graduated from the University College of Medical sciences, Delhi, Dr. Amit did his M.S. in surgery from Shyam Shah Medical College, M.P. He then moved on to his residency in general and laparoscopic surgery which he completed form Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Hospital (LNJP) and Deen Dayal Hospital (DDU) in Delhi. During this period he also managed to acquire his D.N.B. in general surgery. Having keen interest in Laparoscopic surgery Dr. Amit then pursued a fellowship course in Advanced Laparoscopy and Bariatric surgery at the National University Hospital, Singapore. Being trained by the likes of senior and distinguished laparoscopic and bariatric surgeons like Prof. Davide Lomanto, Dr. Amit acquired distinguished laparoscopic skills and mastered both basic and advanced laparoscopic surgeries.
He has also credited to his account a number of international publications in the field of both laparoscopic and bariatric surgery. He has been a part of the organizing as well as training team in a number of laparoscopic master classes and conferences. He also has quite a few lectures in such conferences to his credit. Currently Dr. Amit is running a successful practice in Delhi in the field of General, Laparoscopic and Bariatric Surgery. He has many happy patients added to his logbook.
Dr. Amit Agarwal firmly believes that the most important part of a surgical team's job is to make the experience of the patients as stress free as possible. His team understands the physical as well as mental stress that is associated with even a minor surgery. They understand that this stress extends not only to the patient but also to the family. That is why Dr. Amit ensures that his team works great deal to relieve the stress of the patient and family to as much extent as possible.
This involves the pre operative counseling of the patient along with his family. Proper optimization of all required parameters before surgery is very important for his team. All measures are taken for the smooth running of the operation process. In the post operative phase Dr. Amit likes to be around his patients as much as possible to answer to all their needs and queries. He takes great pains so that none of his patients or family members of patients should feel neglected or left alone.
