Noel Aruparayil

General Surgery


I have taken an OOPR for 3 years to pursue my PhD in Global Surgery with NIHR funded Global Health Research Group - Surgical technologies, University of Leeds. My topic of interest is to evaluate introduction of minimal access surgery in rural LMIC setting by using ‘Gasless Laparoscopy’ under spinal anaesthesia. Special focus is on laparoscopic surgical training, assessing surgical needs, diagnostics and health economics.
