Our purpose is to encourage and promote more and more women endoscopic surgeons in India, as most gynecologists in the country are women.”

Endoscopy is a landmark in women’s health as it leads to faster recovery, no scar and less duration of hospital stay. It is a boon to working women who cannot be absent from work for long.
