Speaking about her journey, Dr Kiran said: “As you are aware, I am a Laparoscopic surgeon. Recently there is a new technique of doing Hysterectomy (removal of the uterus) without any scars by using the laparoscope through the vagina (VNOTES Surgery) – a SCARLESS surgery. It is being done in the Europe, US, and very few places in India as well. Currently, I am the only one who is trained and certified and offering this surgery in the UAE and have performed 25 successful surgeries till now.
Anamika Mohan Saha:
After meeting Dr Kiran for the first time, I felt very comfortable and confident that I was in good hands. She proved it true when she conducted the VNOTES (SCARLESS) Hysterectomy on me. I recovered from the surgery very fast and with minimal pain even though I was back to my regular home duties within a few days after the surgery. She also clarified all my pre and post-operative clarifications and followed up till my complete recovery. I am indeed indebted to her and would recommend her without any doubt.
I’m so glad and grateful that I found Dr Kiran, who is an expert in her profession with a caring hands and heart for her patients. I had Myoma that caused bleeding that lasted eight months and became worse because I was afraid of going through surgery. Only then did I decide to search for an expert to ease my issue and found out about Dr. Kiran through a recommendation through Dr. Amor Romero. I loved how Dr. Kiran took the time to explain my conditions and the treatment options until I was convinced. Finally, my husband and I came up with the decision to remove my uterus and cervix. I went through surgery, an unbelievable major SCARLESS (VNOTES) surgery. Honestly, I had a quick recovery, I did not feel much pain, and I did not even use the pain reliever that they gave me. With proper care, I was able to do my usual routine at home with precautions of avoiding bending and lifting, and on the 15th day, I started going back to work. I’m very impressed with the overall experience and would highly recommend her to anyone.
Dr Usha Karin did the VNOTES (SCARLESS) surgery for my wife and her recovery was quick and with no complications. Here I want to mention that we are satisfied with Dr. Usha. She is having good knowledge and experience. We are very thankful to her and entire staff of prime medical hospital.
