During her residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Sion hospital in Mumbai, Dr. Hegde witnessed how pervasive systemic problems in the provision of health care to underprivileged pregnant women and children led to deaths that were actually preventable. Unable to accept the status quo, she founded ARMMAN (Advancing Reduction in Mortality and Morbidity of Mothers, Children and Neonates; www.armman.org), a non-profit dedicated to designing cost-effective solutions at scale for complex health care problems. ARMMAN’s four projects; mMitra, HERO, Arogya Sakhi home based care and mother and child high risk factor tracking, will impact the lives of millions over the next three years. mMitra was awarded the “People Choice’s Award” at the Saving Lives at Birth grant event in Washington DC in 2011.

Dr. Hegde is also one of very few trained urogynecologists and pelvic floor reconstructive surgeons in the country today. She was awarded the International Urogynecological Association (IUGA) Fellowship in Urogynecology and Reconstructive Pelvic Surgery which she completed in the renowned department of Urogynecology at Cleveland Clinic Florida in 2013 before returning to India. She is the Co-Founder and Director of UPHI (Urogynecology and Pelvic Health Institute) in Gurgaon, Delhi NCR which is a one-of-its-kind tertiary, clinical and academic centre of excellence in the field of urogynecology and pelvic reconstructive surgery in the country.

An accomplished researcher in her field with a master’s degree in biological sciences from Stanford University, she has multiple international research awards including one of the best paper awards at the 2013 American Urogynecological Society (AUGS) Annual meeting and has more than 74 abstracts and publications in peer-reviewed national and international journals. She is also an internationally recognized pioneer in the field of 2D and 3D ultrasound of the pelvic floor and is routinely invited to share her expertise in the field in national and international conferences. She has been a part of the faculty teaching pelvic floor ultrasound at IUGA workshops in 2012 - 2014 and was invited to be an Expert to conduct a round table on imaging for the pelvic floor at the combined IUGA/AUGS annual meeting for 2014 in Washington DC.
