I completed my fellowship course in gynae laparoscopy under Dr. GSS Mohapatra sir at Apollo hospital, Bhubaneshwar.
Dr. Mohapatra sir is a very disciplined person and a passionate surgeon. I got to learn right from the basics to advanced laparoscopy. I got to witness a vast number of laparoscopic endometriotic surgeries; the kind of cases that are operated occasionally elsewhere were routine for us.

During the course I got to assist him in surgeries and got hands on. Sir would guide us and teach us the procedure step by step.
This course has given me confidence in laparoscopy and pelvic anatomy.
I have learnt a lot about patient care and management of various types of gynae cases.
I am grateful to the almighty for giving me this opportunity to learn from Dr. GSS Mohapatra sir, he has given me the confidence to step in the path shown by him.

I did a 3 months training due to time constraint. Dr GSS Sir is a very crisp & beautiful surgeon. His work & decision making skills are unmatchable. I felt lucky to have gotten a chance to learn from him. Inspite of my less training period, Sir made sure I learn maximum from him. He starts from the basics from the very first day. I got a chance to assist him in surgeries & also got hands on. His guidance was excellent in every case. 3 months of training was a very less time but still was perfectly utilised, thanks to Sir. These 3 months weren’t just about laparoscopy but also about patient satisfaction, confidence & great communication skills.

I am Dr. Y. Divisha MS, from Andhra Pradesh. I had joined laparoscopy training course for 3 months.

Under Dr. GSS Mohapatra Sir, my learning experience was truly exceptional. It was an interactive and engaging environment where students are encouraged to ask questions and actively participate in the learning process.

Throughout the course, I had exposure to a diverse range of laparoscopic cases, including those involving Deep Pelvic Endometriosis, Chronic PID, Huge fibroid uterus, vaginoplasty, hysteroscopic septal resections, as well as complex cases with multiple previous surgeries and bowel adhesions. This exposure spanned beyond gynaecological laparoscopy, extending to surgical gynae-oncology cases.

I had assisted more than fifty cases in 3 months of my course. These experiences allowed me to familiarize myself with various instruments, energy sources and their applications, contributing to a well-rounded education in laparoscopy.

Another feature of the course was the availability of the Endotrainer, a tool that allowed me to refine my laparoscopic skills in a controlled environment. This gradual progression from simulation to real surgical cases greatly bolstered my confidence and proficiency in handling laparoscopic instruments effectively.

Everyone at the hospital were warm and welcoming and help throughout course in everyway possible.

Sir role as a mentor was pivotal. His genuine concern for his students’ success was evident through his personalized guidance and constructive feedback. His dedication to remaining at the forefront of laparoscopic advancements ensured that we received the latest knowledge and techniques in the field.

This laparoscopy fellowship not only equipped me with strong technical foundations but also instilled confidence in my abilities. It shaped my professional identity and capabilities in a positive and lasting manner.

I am Dr. Pallavi Gangatkar from Bangalore. Though it was my first time in Bhubaneshwar and Apollo Hospital for a duration of 3 months, time flied within a blink. The correspondence with the Dr. GSS sirs team was quick , so that I got the opportunity to be at Apollo BBSR in 2022 . It was a truly amazing experience working and learning from Dr. G.S.S. Mohapatra sir . Dr.G.S.S sir is one of the most humble surgeon, he is an excellent laparoscopic surgeon and a teacher with love for teaching endoscopic skills. He is brilliant teacher and carefully laid out plan from observing and manipulating to assisting and operating. Sir was always there to answer all queries and help during all the obstacles encountered. He is a surgeon with expertise in endometriotic surgeries, he is really an example of how will and determination wins over everything. I learnt the Hysteroscopy and it’s interpretation and learnt the principles of laparoscopy and hysterectomy which can be applied throughout our practice. Also got the hands on training for hysterescopy and laparoscopy. I got a chance to see and assist around 90 surgeries in a span of 3 months. The range of surgeries was also from simple hysterectomy to most complicated endometriosis which required a surgical Gastro team for bowel resection and anastomosis. I would also like to thank his entire team and Dr.Surekha  for encouraging to work and learn more. 

Special thanks to OT team and technicians who are well experienced and encourage us to learn with patience.

Hope I could stay here and learn for some more time , I had taken a 3 month fellowship course but I advise residents to take a 6 month course to learn better learning of laparoscopy.
