Dr. P. Saravanan

Dr. P. Saravanan graduated from Madras medical college. He was a Straight A student with distinctions in the various undergraduate subjects. Dr. Saravanan was especially very good in Anatomy with students flocking to him to demonstrate dissections. This helped him further his interest in basic sciences. As a medical student, he was interested in Surgery and chose to continue higher studies in Surgery. He joined Stanley medical college and did his masters in Surgery there. Even as a medical student and as an MS post graduate Dr. Saravanan evinced a keen interest in Urology. He was a gold medalist in the Urology medal exams in both sections.

His interest in Urology led him to follow a super specialization in this much sought after field. He completed his Mch from Madras Medical College and here too, he obtained a gold medal thus becoming a unique doctor who has secured Gold medals in Urology throughout his medical career.

He sat for the Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons and completed that from Edinburgh University. His keen interest in Stone disease and prostate led him to train in the same field and undergo superspecialization in laser surgery for kidney stones.

Laser work for stone disease remains a niche field and only a select few have been lucky enough to get trained in the same. Dr.Saravanan early on realized the many advantages of Laser surgery, for kidney stone removal includes its cost-effectiveness, its minimally invasive nature and has been using the laser for the past 7 years.

He is an integral part of the Laser Kidney stone clinic and continues to be very active with teaching responsibilities.
