Senior Consultant, Department of Reproductive Medicine
Dr. Ashwini S has completed her MBBS from Government Medical College, Mysore, in 2002. She then decided to pursue her interest in Gynaecology by obtaining a Diploma in Gynaecology and Obstetrics (DGO) at Bangalore Medical College, and then also went on to pursue DNB in OBG. Further, she has successfully completed Fellowship in Reproductive Medicine from Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences at Gunasheela IVF Center, Bangalore.
She has also undergone advanced training in Endoscopic procedures (Laparoscopic and Hysteroscopic Surgeries). She specializes in Infertility and IVF treatment, Laparoscopic and Hysteroscopic procedures like diagnostic laparoscopy, ovarian drilling, reconstructive surgery for endometriosis, ovarian cystectomies, myomectomies, total laparoscopic hysterectomies, diagnostic and operative hysteroscopic procedures like septal resection, adhesiolysis, and tubal cannulation.
She has done more than 2000 IVF procedures (a large proportion of them being cases of recurrent IVF failures) and embryo transfers with a consistent pregnancy rate of more than 50%. Her core-competence is in treating patients with recurrent IVF failures, PCOD and recurrent abortions. She has accrued more than 11 years of experience in field of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, out of which more than 6 years of expertise is exclusively in Infertility and Assisted Reproductive techniques.
Vision: Infertility is not just a medical entity. It has wide repercussions on the couple’s social and emotional wellbeing. Dr.Ashwini believes in not just delivering the treatment but also an empathetic and individualized care. Often patients are seen hopping from one gynaecologist to the other getting the same tests over and over again. It is very important for them to consult the right specialist and get the right treatment before they lose the precious time. She also believes in ethical treatment and a transparent system where patients are systematically appraised of what they are going through.
