At the latter institution, Dr Chetty-B worked as the Senior House Officer (SHO) in emergency medicine, general surgery, orthopaedics, urology, and paediatric surgery. 

This varied experience in different surgical units around the world has given Dr Chetty-B unparalleled knowledge of many types of surgery, as well as exposure to a broad range of conditions. She has had the opportunity to collaborate with surgeons around the globe as they worked to resolve challenging surgical conditions and complex academic cases.
