Dr Sameer Kumar, Gynaecologist and Obstetrician talks to PurpleHealth.com on "Take 5- Five Questions with a Doctor".

1. Can you tell us a bit about yourself and your background?

I am arduous student of field of gynaecology and obstetrics and have been specialised in the same with specialisation in Gyne-laparoscopic surgeries. I have a background of having served with INDIAN ARMY for good five years and have been to different parts of India again hailing from a defence background. My tenure at SIACHEN GLACIER during my service has been the most memorable time of my life and allowed me to work with the troops of INDIAN ARMY stationed at that height and job was to look after their well being and health. I have been into this humane profession out of choice and pledge to contribute to the speciality with my services both academically and as a consultant to the patients.

2. What are the most common issues that patients come to see you for?

The issues which i deal regularly at my hospital are mostly antenatal cases ( both normal and high risk pregnancies), women with infertility issues, menstrual irregularities, puberty menorrhagia, gynaecological issues like fibroids, DUB, ovarian cysts, PCOS, and many more , and also performing surgeries like LAVH, TVH + BSO, vaginal hysterectomy, laparoscopic cystectomy, laparoscopic tubal ligation.

3. Do you have any general advice for your patients in terms of your particular area of specialty?

I would just like to say that doctors are just doctors and gender really shouldn't matter in this speciality as we see a common notion against male doctors here in this part of the country contrary to the remaining INDIA. I bring my speciality and expertise to my patients and assure then best of the treatment and a humane approach towards their issues. I would like to take this opportunity to encourage them to seek medical advise , be it in person or through online services whenever you feel you are in pain or suffering from a gyn condition as ignoring it can worsen your state really fast especially in this reproductive branch.

4. What is the most challenging aspect of your job?

The most challenging aspect of my job as a gynecologist is the fact that I have to be prepared for any emergency or a delivery anytime during the day as they happen anytime and this happens to be demanding in itself but the profession itself and the results are rewards in themselves, especially when there is a honest acknowledgement coming from the patients after they are treated well. So that keeps me going.

5. What is the most enjoyable aspect of your job?

The most enjoyable part of this field is the fact that the treatment is decisive and there are no loop holes anywhere, protocols are well laid and the results are instant. There is no dichotomy with regards to the treatment especially in this field and of course the best part is always the smile on the patient's face after she returns home well treated.
