Hi I am Dr.Leonard, I completed my MBBS from Kilpauk Medical College, Chennai and Radiology Postgraduate training from Stanley Medical College, Chennai.After my training in India ,I left to UK and was trained in Fetal medicine and completed my Fellowship in Fetal medicine under Professor Kypros Nicolaides at Harris Birthright research centre for fetal medicine, which is the first centre for Fetal medicine in United Kingdom located at prestigious Kings College hospital in London.I was fortunate to be trained under Professor Kypros Nicolaides who is considered as the Father and Pioneer of Fetal medicine who discovered the Nuchal translucency (11-13 week scan), Laser treatment of Twin to twin transfusion syndrome, prediction of preterm labour, preeclampsia screening and several other researches has revolutionized the practice of Obstetrics and Fetal medicine. By working under him at Kings College hospital, London- the Royal College of Obstetricians, Gynecologists and Radiologists has awarded me the Advanced Fellowship in Obstetric Ultrasound and Fetal medicine in 2008.I have obtained all competencies in 11-14 weeks scans with markers,18-23weeks detailed Anomaly scan, Cervix Assessment, Maternal and Fetal Dopplers,Fetal Echocardiography and Invasive procedures under him. In addition to my Fetal medicine I was fortunate to be trained in Musculoskeletal Ultrasound which is an innovative way of assessing the Musculoskeletal system and soft tissues of the body. I obtained the competency from the European college of Musculoskeletal (MSK) Imaging. Nowadays, Quality MSK Ultrasound can replace MRI if done accurately ,Also will be cost effective and therapeutic with injection of steroids in joints .The scanning in MSK is operator dependent, intricate and cumbersome. I noticed training in MSK is not yet included in the Radiology training in India and lack of awareness among the practicing doctors in general practice to utilize the simple non invasive tool. Rheumatologists and Orthopedicians are using MSK ultrasounds limitedly because of the inadequate quality of the MSK ultrasound imaging.After working in UK for 18 years, I am back to my home place Chennai due to elderly parents and family reasons.Fetal medicine Scans in India:After returning to India from UK where I worked for 18years.I was completely shocked to see some of the Nuchal ultrasound pictures here which were performed by non FMF trained Sonologists/Radiologists that do not follow the strict criteria for NT measurement which defeats the purpose of chromosomal screening in pregnant women.This is due to lack of trained Fetal medicine specialists and also no structured training in India apart from handful of institutions. My current position:I have newly started the scan centre named as London Spectra Advanced Centre for Fetal medicine and Ultrasound, Chennai. The centre is behind Apollo digital hospital, Perungudi at the moment. We are planning for expansion of the fetal medicine and ultrasound services in the new venue in near future. My special areas of interest :• Having trained in Harris birthright centre in UK my aim is to spread the awareness of proper NT screening and other aspect of fetal medicine among the Obstetricians/Sonologists/Radiologists.• Early diagnosis of fetal abnormalities and counseling and management of fetal abnormalities.• To provide World class service and wonderful experience during antenatal scans with quality imaging, excellent reports with good communication to pregnant women and their families.• Pregnancy is an emotionally challenging time of their lives; I want the women and their family experience an unforgettable quality time during antenatal scans.• To establish London Spectra advanced centre for second opinions in fetal medicine scans.• To be a trainer in fetal medicine.
I’m very thankful to Dr. Leo and to Dr. Parimalam.
Me and my wife are living in Bangalore as i work here for a MNC. Initial 6 months of my wife pregnancy she stayed with me in Bangalore and she went through a lot of pain and struggle to keep our baby fine. I’ve to say that those 6 months were full of confusion and depression because of the feedback that we had received from the Dr that we had consulted in Bangalore which was totally based on my wife reports on Sugar level and Cervix length.
We decided to move to Chennai for delivery after speaking with Dr. Leo and Dr. Parimalam multiple times (they were so caring and answered to our same questions multiple times).
I still remember rushing to her clinic on the very same day that we had reached Chennai. They welcomed us with a smile and ensured that they calmed us down and boosted us mentally stating that we can go through this phase easily (though it had complications). Sited multiple examples on cervix issues of their own patients and how they are now with their kids. This certainly gave us the feeling that we were in the right hands and that was the day when i saw my wife laughing, literally after a gap of 3 months.
Based on my visits to clinics and hospitals for pregnancy scan, I’ve never seen a Dr. explaining on what they see while performing scan. But when it comes to Dr. Leo, he takes time to examine (other docs complete the scan in 10 to 15 mins) and ensures to explain his patients on what he performs and the importance behind it. He understands his patients complications and deals it with a great patience. Ask him any doubts and how many ever times you ask he answers you back with the same smile. He’s tooo amazing!!!
It’s been few weeks since my daughter had seen this world and i’ll proudly say its because of the care and attention that Dr. Leo and Dr. Parimalam had given to my wife and baby.
Thank you so much for everything Doctors...
I had visited the hospital for my pregnancy, since this is my first pregnancy I was nervous but dr.parimalam ramanathan was very friendly and addressed all my queries. She was available on phone and kept track of my health in the last trimester and when it was time for my delivery . She provided the best medical help and
Now am blessed with a baby boy through normal delivery. She was very patient and motivating in the labour and delivery room. I would definitely recommend dr.parimalam ramanathan. **** ********** ** *** **** *********** *** he explains everything before scan and is friendly too . I would like to take this opportunity to thank Dr.parimalam ramanathan and Dr.leonard for helping to have a normal and safe delivery .
Definitely this(my) doctor makes difference. Welcomes you everytime with warm smile. May the certifications are equal to other doctors but not the confidence we get in his care. He is the most talented, professional, empathetic doctor and person I have ever met. The way he dealt with my early pregnancy complications and the confidence he has put in me is unbelievable. I am very happy to say he is a great doctor who knows the art of healing wisely and smartly with lots of patience and understanding towards the complications.
One of the best choices you make for yourself would to make an appointment with this doctor for scan. I would assure that you will feel the same once you meet him.
He is so friendly and easy approchable...He explained every small thing very clearly...I never hesitated to speak anything with him since every doubt he use to clealr with so much patience...Sir....Thank you so much to you and madam......for the Love, care and the right treatment you gave along with regular counselling. This really helped us to pass the difficult time. Will always be thankful to you for giving us our world to us.”
