Dr. Shubha Sinha
Fellowship in breast cancer
My significant experience in oncology has taught me two things. Remain current with the latest advances in Oncology care and take time to listen and understand the unique needs of each patient.
Hi, I am Dr. Shubha Sinha, Consultant Breast and Oncoplastic Surgeon based in Ahmedabad.
I am a Surgeon, an educator, a researcher, a mother, a daughter, a home cook, and an avid reader!
My aim is to provide the most empathetic and personal care to my patients and to spread awareness in public about breast health, best care, prevention of breast cancer, and the need for screening.
Since I was a kid, I always wanted to be a Doctor, when I was 4yrs old my parents gifted me a Doctor Barbie set and I thought I got all my world! After completing my MBBS, I followed Nana's (grandfather) footsteps and chose General Surgery as my specialized branch for training. During my 3 years as a surgical resident, it was obvious that female patients were reluctant to come to surgical OPD and often ignored their diseases. Hence I wanted to work especially for all females, by providing them a personalized, friendly environment for care. All of us, at some point in time, have come in contact with "Cancer" in our near and dear ones. Hence I chose Breast Cancer as my branch for super specialization.
In Our Country more than 1lakh women are newly diagnosed with breast cancer every year and more than 70% of them present in advanced stages, hence making breast cancer the leading cause of cancer deaths in females. In Breast Cancer, Early diagnosis can save lives, so I actively work in spreading awareness about the disease.
I trained from the country's highest-volume cancer center, the prestigious TATA MEMORIAL HOSPITAL, Mumbai under the guidance of Dr. Rajendra Badwe Sir, Dr. Vani Parmar Mam, and Dr. Nita Nair Mam. I also trained in Oncoplastic Breast surgeries (Combining cancer surgery with plastic surgery ) for better Cosmetic outcomes in patients from the EUROPEAN SURGICAL SOCIETY OF ONCOLOGY. I also did a professional diploma in Clinical research, as I believe the only way forward is through research about breast cancer to ensure the very best outcome.
I have more than 8+ years of experience as a specialist in managing Breast diseases (both benign and cancer) and I am actively involved in all steps of cancer management from prevention, screening, diagnosis, treatment & palliation. I support patients from initial consultation through their final recovery and coordinate all aspects of their care. I treat and support my patients and their family so that they have minimal physical, mental, emotional & financial stress. In my opinion, the only way to deliver care is to be there from the start through the end for all big decisions and milestones along the way.
My goal is to optimize patient's surgical outcomes and experiences by providing personalized and thoughtful unique care. Professionally I keep myself updated with the latest research and developments in my field.
Let's spread awareness as Early diagnosis is key to life!!
We are on this journey together!!
