Professional - State Sector

Ministry of Health - Sri Lanka

Currently attached to the gastroenterological surgical unit of the provincial general hospital - Badulla. I have been the first GI surgeon attached to Badulla PGH after 8 years where their very first GI surgeon left the station. There was no functioning GI surgical unit when I took over the post and I have managed to build up a complete unit. It has a weekly operating theatre list where major gastroenterological cases are handled including highly specialised GI surgical, hepatic billiard and bariatric cases. Every week I perform 10-20 go endoscopies and also run a GI surgical clinic and a bariatric surgical clinic programme.

Professional - Private Sector

I provide my services in the following private sector hospitals. I provide patient consultations, patient education, investigative and therapeutic endoscopy and high quality surgical procedures. My colonoscopy' ileal intubation rate is 100% so far (substantiated by video evidence and biopsy proof). I perform both laparoscopic (including SILS) and open surgical procedures. I undertake GI oncological (bowel cancer) surgeries and I perform oncologically sound high quality cancer surgeries up to the world standards.
