I am Dr. Vijay Ganapathy, a native of the French city of Pondicherry. After a memorable schooling in Petit Seminaire High School, I went on to study Medicine, giving life to my wings-of-flight, in Pondicherry Institute of Medical Sciences, Pondicherry University.
I furthered my education with a Master’s in surgery in Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research (JIPMER), Puducherry, India. I was beginning to fly, like a little bird that took the first jump from a cliff. Of course, the wings which were prepared for years made sure it gave the best experience and I passed out as the topper with a gold medal.
When flying became a routine, the next desire was to take on distances and heights. I completed the Urological Residency MCh in Institute of Nephrourology, Bengaluru, a dedicated center for nephrology and urology (performing around 500-600 urological surgeries every month) and center of excellence in Laproscopic and Renal Transplant. I went on to completing the Andrology Fellowship sub specialization in Singapore General hospital and NUHS, Singapore.
The journey paved way for my research in Urodynamics, the Study of Urinary Dynamics, and I was honored with the Urogynaecology Fellowship from the International Continence Society (ICS 2017), Florence, Italy. This is a significant milestone as it brought me an opportunity to present my study on an international forum. This time the flight was grant by the Indian Council of medical research (ICMR)’s travel grant.
I also went on to present my novel work on T. Pregabalin’s efficacy in stent removal, a study I put forth before the World Congress of Endourology held in Paris, 2018.
Today as a practicing urologist, my field of interest and care is Minimal Invasive Management for stone diseases, in terms of scarless/ keyhole surgery and vascular access for kidney failure patients.
My mission is to create awareness for Men's Health Management, which is still a social taboo and under-lightened area in this land and many parts of the world.
If health is wealth, then awareness is the means to it.
