While in Bangalore, she continued to be actively involved in women care, in some of the busiest units in the city. She was the first consultant to introduce the concept of evidence-based, protocol-led management of patients in match with international standards. This has contributed immensely in reduction of caesarean section rates and also helped in setting standards and improving patient care.
