urologist in bangalore

Searching for Urologist in Bangalore ?

Though, there are numerous urologists in Bangalore, finding the one that is best for you, requires you to have a few vital points on your checklist. Also, there are various factors that would be influencing your choice. Here is a sneak peak into a few points you would want to consider while you are looking for an urologist in Bangalore.

Urologists deal with infections related to the urinary tract. These are bacterial infestations, congenital abnormalities, reproductive system disorders, surgical and non-surgical problems. Urology includes various sub disciplines and deals with care of physiological systems and numerous organs. You’ll even find a few specialists in the sub disciplines as well. Here is a run down the sub disciplines in urology.

Endurology – This branch of urology is into urinary tracts close manipulation and includes surgical procedures with minimal invasion. The process involves insertion of small cameras and instruments to the urinary tract.

Laparoscopy – It is the branch of urology that uses Robot assisted surgery for organs like kidney, ureter and prostate. Though, it is a costly affair and has been creating controversies for the same reason across continents.

Neurology – Conditions leading to abnormal urination and even the control of genitourinary system are dealt with in Neurology.

Pediatric Urology – This branch of urology deals into children’s urologic disorders like under developed genitalia, enuresis and more.

Andrology – Dealing into the male reproductive system, Andrology is about erectile dysfunction, male infertility and more.

Reconstructive urology – As the specialized discipline of urology, it deals with function and restoration of the genitourinary tract.

As far as finding an urologist in Bangalore is concerned, it is not easy to choose one urologist from the list of good ones, but as mentioned earlier when you have your checklist of priorities in hand, it certainly eases your task a lot.

LOCATION

Apparently, you would not exactly know how much time your treatment takes. You might have to get admitted to the hospital or might have to make frequent trips. So, it is advisable that while looking out for a Urologist, try to shortlist the good ones but those in a area near to your residence or workplace so that commuting to and fro is hassle free.

GENDER

Urologists specialize in urologic conditions and hence feeling comfortable to talk is one of the major concerns. This is when you need to think upon whether you want to go with a male or female specialist. It is solely individual decision depending upon personal comfort levels, though.

CREDENTIALS

Credentials are one of the main concerns. The qualifications, experience and the reputation of the urologist matter most. So, research a bit about the qualifications, the expertise of the doctor and his reputation in general before you shortlist.

REFERALS

If you know some one from amongst your friends or colleagues who know a good urologist, then you could add them to your shortlist as well. If the doctor is testified by some one you know well, nothing like that.

INFRASTRUCTURE

Now, if you think that you might need to avail hospital services as well, then its better to choose the doctors with hospitals as well. Though, you need to visit the hospital and check out the facilities in terms of staff and other amenities personally.

BUDGET

We all know the fact that everything finally it boils down to mullah. So, alongside the other relevant points, budget is also one to be kept on mind. But, it is advisable not to make budget the only criteria. If the doctor is really good but is charging little higher than the others, better go for him/her.

After you shortlist some three to five, select the final one that suits your needs the most.

Dear Mrs D.A Kalpaja,

I write to convey my regards and enclose an article from the Army Journal of Combat Medicine for your kind perusal. It was written by Major Ritesh Goel, the RMO(Regimental medical officer) of the 4th Para(SF)- 4th Battalion of the Parachute Regimen(special forces -earlier called Para Commandos). This Elite battalion was part of the Agra based 50 Parachute Brigade( 1 Brigade has 3 battalions) which was called for Aid to Civil Power during the Kedarnath cloud burst and floods.

Ritesh Goel was a student of our good college (1st batch) and has done his Alma mater proud. He was motivated to join the army by Dr. Brig. AS Kasthuri VSM the then HOD Medicine of VIMS. Brig AS Kasthuri VSM was also my instructor during PG at AFMC from 1982 to 1984.

Ritesh Goel led a team which was dropped by Air Force helicopters right in the middle of destruction. With no place to land they slithered down by ropes from the hovering helicopters.

They set up a dispensary, Communication centre and opened up the road blocks for further army and civil reinforcements to move in. The rest of the story unfolds in the undertyped by this well motivated young major.

Functionalities and benefits of Biometrics And Biometric Attendance Systems

Time is money, more so in Business. All sorts of time thefts that plague companies are difficult to target. Combined with human errors, these time thefts simply generate huge losses in terms of quality manpower. The only solution to manually calculating, controlling and recording employee time-sheets is biometrics.
Biometrics or Biometric Authentication is the process of Identification of human beings by their traits or characteristics. Biometrics are a form of identification and access control. Examples of biometrics are fingerprinting, face recognition, DNA, palm printing, hand geometry and iris recognition.
Biometric Attendance Systems

The various functionality associated with biometrics are uniqueness, performance and acceptability. There are two modes of operation of a biometric system

1) Verification or Authentication-Verification means that the system performs a one to one comparison to a specific template stored in a biometric database
2) Identification-Identification means a one to many comparison against the biometric database in order to establish the individual’s identity.

For a company to be a leader in its niche, it should be taking steps at ground level to prevent wastage of time. A biometric attendance system has the following benefits-

1) Cloud computing- To compute a secure log-in and log-out of work, these biometric systems are anytime, anywhere
2) A finger or thumb impression is the sole prerogative of these biometric systems putting an end to time thefts
3) Buddy punching is prevalent all over the world. By this term we mean that the employee punches the access card of his colleague to prevent the knowledge of his late timings. But the use of biometrics successfully prevents this occurrence.
4) Manual tracking is highly faulty and can be avoided by the use of biometrics and human errors can be relegated to minimal values.
5) The administrative process is smooth and regulatory making payrolls a relatively easy task.

Biometric attendance systems are one of the best available software systems that can save human efforts with very little investment. It can certainly increase the overall productivity in short span of time.
Star performers can bank upon biometric attendance systems to outshine their peers. Cheers!!
