Meet Dr Anurag Gupta , MD Radiodiagnosis

"My heart broke when the mother of a little girl, a childhood leukemia patient, was diagnosed with breast cancer. There are many such grim, disturbing incidents that leave me feeling helpless as a doctor. At times when I am on the verge of losing hope, it is the courage of my patients & their family that makes me put up a brave front and remain optimistic during treatment."

“The toughest part of being an interventional radiologist is announcing bad news to my patients; Sometimes, things just don’t go the way they’re supposed to, despite our best efforts to treat the cancer.

I’ve learnt more working in oncology, than I have during the years I spent studying medicine- When death approaches a person, it dissolves their ambitions. Priorities change & they realise the true importance of their loved ones. During my service, I have treated patients from all walks of life.

Fighting cancer is a hard battle, so is treating it. Witnessing the psychological effects it has on people is terrifying. Every patient has a different story, some much more unfortunate than others. My heart broke when the mother of a little girl, a childhood leukemia patient, was diagnosed with breast cancer. There are many such grim, disturbing incidents that leave me feeling helpless as a doctor. At times when I am on the verge of losing hope, it is the courage of my patients & their family that makes me put up a brave front and remain optimistic during treatment.

I never planned to become a doctor. In highschool, I was keen on becoming an engineer and exploring my love for technology. Biology just happened to be one of my subjects. It was when I cleared both AIEEE & NEET, that I realised my true calling- to walk in my fathers footsteps. My dad is the most influential person in my life, both personally and professionally. I grew up watching him leave for the hospital to take emergency calls, at 2AM and even missing my birthday parties, to be there for his patients.

Today, I couldn’t be more content and grateful for the way things have turned out, and aspire to soon combine my love for healing & engineering by developing a new medical technology. “
