• Brief Profile


      After my initial schooling in Chennai, I graduated from JIPMER, Pondicherry. I had my initial surgical training in Stanley Medical College, Chennai and obtained MS(gen. surgery) degree from there. Subsequently I did a two year stint under Prof.N.Rangabashyam, a renowned Surgical gastroenterologist at the Madras Medical College and obtained MCh ( GI surgery) from there.   Soon after I joined as a senior resident in the department of GI Surgery and Liver Transplantation at  AIIMS  under the Chairmanship of Prof.Samiran Nundy and trained under him in advanced gastro-intestinal surgery for over three years. Here I had learnt protocol based approach to patient management, standardized surgical techniques , academic surgery and had immensely benefited by my stint in the GI Unit which has produced most of present leaders in India in GI Surgery and liver transplantation.   Later I had worked in GI surgery units in SVIMS, Tirupati and NIMS, Hyderabad where I honed my skills and could put to use what I had learnt in AIIMS. I had subsequently worked for 3 years in Bangladesh and another 3 years in Sri Lanka and my experiences in surgery these countries widened my horizon.   I have been working in Apollo Hospitals Chennai as a senior consultant in GI and laparoscopic surgery for the last 7 years. Here I have been exposed to corporate medicine and high end gadgetry and this has immensely enriched my surgical expertise. I trained in advanced laparoscopic surgery and robotic surgery as well and put this training to good use. With the availability of exclusive day surgery facility with Apollo Hospitals I had performed over 230 laparoscopic gall bladder and hernia surgeries with an average hospital stay of 5 hours.   I consider it a great privilege to be associated with Prof. Samiran Nundy who is an epitome of ethical, transparent and evidence based medicine and will be glad to accept and carry on whatever responsibility he’ll bestow on me.
