Urogynaecology in Chennai
Professor Ajay Rane
This article was written to share my experiences of becoming a part of an urogynaecology teaching hospital in Chennai, India. I first visited the Kasturba Gandhi Hospital in Chennai during 2001 where I was asked to demonstrate a tension-free vaginal tape (TVT) procedure. When I arrived there, it was clear to me that the cost of a TVT would feed the entire theatre staff for a month and buy much needed equipment for very poor patients.
