About

I am Dr Uttara U Deshmukh (P&O) and I have completed my Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Prosthetics and Orthotics stream from All India Institute of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Mumbai. I was working as an Assistant Professor in the department of Prosthetics and Orthotics in MGM Institute of Health Sciences, Kamothe, Navi Mumbai since July 2014 to March 2019 and as In-charge Principal since April 2019 till date. Prosthetics and Orthotics is a unique field of Rehabilitation where an inability of a person can be converted into ability with the help of Prostheses (i.e. artificial limbs) and Orthoses (i.e. supportive splints). The Prosthetics and Orthotics at MGM Institute of Health Sciences aims to make “Divyangajan” free of special challenges that they face and empower in them to lead a better quality life. I have presented major papers in various International as well as National Conferences such as conferences organized by Orthotics and Prosthetics Association of India, International Society for Prosthetics and Orthotics, the Indian Association of Cerebral Palsy etc. I have presented papers in the fields of Cerebral Palsy, Mobility Aids, Upper Extremity Prosthetics and Orthotics. I have organized multiple Continuing Rehabilitation Education Programmes such as Orthotic Management of Cerebral Palsy, Orthotic Management of Integrated Diabetic Foot, Advances in Prosthetic Knee Joint, Advances in Upper Extremity Prosthetics Orthotics etc. Besides these, I have also organized many Rehabilitation Camps as a part of Corporate Social Responsibility under which, more than 500 Orthoses, Prostheses, Mobility Aids and Appliances were provided free of cost to the specially abled population. I am also responsible to develop a sense amongst the students regarding the NSS activities, Innovative Activities under IIC Council, MGMIHS. Under me, the department of Prosthetics and Orthotics has successfully underwent various inspections under authorities like Rehabilitation Council of India, NABH and NAAC. I am currently pursuing a research which aims to develop and manufacture low-cost Trans-tibial Prostheses for the poor and needy patients, in association with the Incubation Innovation Centre, MGMIHS, Kamothe, Navi Mumbai. Besides my professional life, I actively participate in the various Cultural, Literature and Arts Events organized across the MGM Campus, such as Role Enaction, Solo Singing, Elocution Competitions etc. I enjoy reading novels in my leisure time. Recently I have received the 'Best Teacher's award' from 'Institute of Scholars'.
