We offer two weeks short-term fellowship in Phacoemulsification, S.I.C.S. and E.C.C.E. You may opt for ADVANCED PHACO training as well. One very vital aspect of learning Phaco in two weeks is that you need to be an ECCE surgeon who is in touch with surgery. If you are well versed with ECCE, our team of trainers will take all efforts to make you a confident Phaco Surgeon. Our specially designed STEPWISE Short-term training includes training & practice on goat’s eyeball and hands on training on “many” cases. You can get more number of cases if you are a quick learner. We offer direct – one is to one teaching, supervised hands on sessions, where trainer will be giving you feedback. Facility for video recording of surgeries can be made available. The training has 12 working days (6 days a week, Saturday being working day). With prior intimation, you may extend the training period by paying an extra cost. The training is available throughout the year.

The specially designed Unique Stepwise training program is the result of our experience & research on this subject for a decade. Dr. Mahatme himself has been conducting workshops & skill transfer programs at National & International level since past several years. He has demonstrated Woodcutter’s Nucleus Cracking Technique for Phaco surgeries in many countries including Romania, Indonesia, Malaysia. He has also presented his work on the subject at various international conferences like Rome Symposium, DOC Nurnberg- Germany, ICO, Sydney,Australia, AAO- Anaheim- USA, Brazil, Bangkok etc.


Dr. Mahatme’s book - PHACO TIPS & TRICKS published by Jaypee Publishers Delhi, is of great help in learning phaco.
