He was both proud and humbled by the announcement of being awarded with OAM.

"The work I do is mostly looking after women who suffer from terrible traumas of childbirth," says Prof. Rane. Furthermore, he adds, "At the same time, I champion the world against female infanticide and foeticide, female genital mutilation and sexual assault against women ... there are a lot of injustices done to women the world over."

His contribution to the field of Urogynaecology includes developing awareness-raising initiatives like “Beat the Bladder Blues’ to help educate women; co-inventing the ‘PERIGEE’ – revolutionary mesh to repair prolapsed bladder; and producing Bollywood film ‘Riwayat’ that exposed the issues in India about female foeticide. His humanitarian work in India, Nepal and Malaysia is also noteworthy. He has been successfully training local doctors in these countries and co-founded the Gosha hospital in slums of Chennai.

On receiving the award, he expressed,“I feel blessed to have the opportunity to serve the community and winning the award has only strengthened my resolve to provide with first-rate women’s health care across North Queensland and the world over.

Iconic Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar was also conferred with the prestigious OAM award last year.
