#NewProfilePic for July 2024

01 July 2024 - Every month, a different member of staff will be our #NewProfilePic on social media.

This July, our #NewProfilePic features Meet Mr Nitish Narvekar, Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist, and Specialist in Reproductive Medicine and Minimal Access Surgery at King’s College Hospital. Mr Narvekar joined King’s in 2008. He said: “I have always felt welcomed and supported at work, and encouraged to perform to the best of my abilities since joining King’s. Personally and professionally, I have learnt a lot so far.”
What makes your role special to you and the patients you care for? 
“The ability to use the cutting-edge technologies that King’s, as a tertiary teaching hospital, provides to improve the health and wellbeing of our diverse multi-ethnic population.”
Any special moments that you’ve experienced at work? 
“I undertake many complex surgical treatments, often working long hours, including on weekends, and it’s very rewarding when patients write to personally thank me for my work or update me when they have had babies.”
Is there anything interesting about your role at King’s that people may not have known? 
“That my lifetime focus has been to use my surgical skills to enhance and/or restore fertility.”
 What inspired you to specialise in reproductive medicine and robotic surgery?
“Robotic surgery offers quicker recovery and better clinical outcomes, but what is also less well known is its better design and comfort, which will helps reduce surgeon fatigue, thus prolonging careers at the time of greatest need within the NHS.”
What do you find most rewarding about working with patients who are dealing with reproductive issues?
“Childbearing is a miracle – the ability to help patients with reproductive difficulties is very fulfilling, both professionally and personally.”
