Dr. Kulkarni has over 20 years of experience in the field of infertility treatment and is an elected member of the Indian Society for the Study of Reproduction and Fertility (ISSRF) and The American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM). Dr. Kulkarni's work has won him national acclaim for developing several simple, safe, and effective surgical methods to assist reproduction. Siddhi Life was started in 1998 as a comprehensive stand-alone infertility treatment center. He is thankful to his parents for giving unconditional support in his mission. Without their support Siddhi Life would not have been possible, he says. He agrees there are several patient-centric issues still associated with IVF in India. This subject is treated as taboo in society and couples do not discuss their problems openly and therefore deny themselves proper treatment. Precious time is lost by such couples but slowly things are changing with growing awareness.
Dr. Kulkarni advises the best method to choose an IVF center is to get feedback from previous patients. The patients must also check and ensure that the center is recognized by the Indian Council of Medical Research(ICMR). Siddhi Life is recognized by ICMR as providing standardized treatments and is also ISO certified. His scientific treatises have appeared in several prestigious national and international journals and his work has been decorated with numerous awards and honors. He is ever-popular on the didactic circuit. Dr. Kulkarni is very passionate about music and is a good singer. He relaxes by reading and playing badminton but, nothing for him can replace the awesome joy of triggering life in a barren uterus.
