Dr Chirag Amin

(MD, DGO, Dip. In Endoscopic Surgery, Kiel, Germany)

Dr Chirag Amin is one of the best Obstetricians and Gynaecologist in Amin’s hospital for women. Located in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, he holds an excellent experience of over 36 years in the field, serving patients and helping them live a better and healthy life.
Dr Chirag has completed his MBBS, and further did his Diploma as well as MD in gynaecology and Obstetrics. He specialises in obstetrics and gynaecology and is apt at handling high-risk pregnancies and laparoscopic surgeries.

He trained in endoscopic surgery when it was in its infancy in the world at that time from Kiel University. It is one of the oldest Universities in Germany, with Klinikum Der Christian Albrechts being the pioneer centre in the world for Video-Endoscopic surgery. K Semm, considered to be the father of endoscopic surgery, was the Director at the said university.
Video-endoscopy is also called minimally invasive surgery or keyhole surgery, where an endoscope to which a state-of-the-art Endovision camera is attached is through small 5 mm ports. This is accompanied by cold light using a fibre-optic cable and a variety of instruments.

Video-endoscopy is used to do extensive surgeries without putting a large incision on the abdomen. Most of the modern centres are switching over to endoscopic surgeries due to immense advantages like minimal incision, shortest possible stay hospitalisation (most of the centres become daycare centres), patient comfort, & earliest convalescence.
He has been doing high-frequency wide-angle transvaginal ultrasonography especially for infertility and specialises in live 4-D Volume scan using voluson E10 the most advanced scanner.
Presently working as a consultant at Amin’s Hospital for Women, Dr Chirag strives to serve his patients and is solely dedicated to them and the clinic.
