Dr Arun Reddy - Long Term fellowship (Cataract with Medical Retina)
Hi, I am Dr Arun Reddy did my general Ophthalmology fellowship ( surgical training ) from M.N. Eye hospital, Chennai. Dr Nivean sir planning and Dr Nishanth sir way of teaching surgeries are extraordinary ( used to say “should know at what step complication arises” and discussing the complications and tips to correct them outside the operation theatre), the surgical guides Dr Prathiba Mam, Dr Shruthi Mam, Dr Sangeetha Mam, Dr Malarchelvi Mam, Dr Malarkodi Mam were so patient and helpful all the time in Operation theatre, encouraging in every possible way, they are aptly called as “surgical teachers “. Every Thursday morning in journal club meeting we have a chance to interact with Ophthalmic legends Dr Madhivanan sir , Dr Chalini Mam, Dr Murali Ariga sir, and they are so down to earth and share their vast experiences with budding doctors. My colleagues Dr Cyril, Dr Rachel , Dr Ayshwariya, Dr Mythri, support during the stay was unforgettable.
