I was born in Allahabad in 1969 and graduated from KGMC with Silver Medal in SS Khan Dissection Competition, indicating right in the first year the birth of a future Surgeon. I did my MS orthopaedics from KGMC, conducting a Randomized Control Trial, comparing Conservative and Operative treatment of Trochanteric Fracture, at that very early stage and came to the nuances in conducting the best of research. Since then I worked in developing the Joint Replacement services of the Department, specializing in cost minimization, to bring those highly useful and perhaps the only solution to patient’s problem, within the reach of common man. So simple, effective, affordable solutions have interested me throughout my career.
My ability to achieve what was assigned in a time critical manner, including firefighting problems that rose in difficult assignments, like managing the Trauma Centre of KGMU, where demand is always out running supply on a daily basis and we have to work against very high expectations without saying no, landed me in catering to various assignments in the University like Assistant Provost, Member Proctorial Board, Superintendent Trauma Centre, Transport in Charge and even highly technical jobs like University Environmental Cell nodal officer. As member of the various committees in the University I have gained considerable experience in working in a group and by consensus involving everyone so that they own the decisions taken.
Recognizing the importance of time critical management of trauma patients before formal help arrives and during retrieval I have mastered as ATLS Instructor who delivers various levels of training to the members of the Life chain from site of injury to back to home.
Being exposed to Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Centre and Department of Rheumatology, which are in the same campus as Orthopaedics in KGMU, I have unique and extensive experience of working in interface areas in these various related specialities.
It goes without saying that I have guided many PG and PhD thesis and have published papers and guided Research projects in the University.
Oriented to community outreach and contribution to “Rashtriya Bal Swasthya Karyakram (RBSK)” of Government of India, I have been instrumental in establishing outreach services for CTEV care in the Department. In the process more than 250 Orthopaedic surgeons have been trained in early, effective and cheap treatment of CTEV and more than 1000 CTEV children have been treated.
As Director of a budding Institute my vision is of an Institute which offers excellent teaching and tender loving care to patients and creates students with a vision to reach out the most modern and cost effective in medicine to the last man in the queue with humility and love. I have a track record of working with my superiors as a useful member of their team and have got affection and admiration from them.
