As an alumnus of this prestigious institute, it is an honor for me to give back to my institute what it gave me. I developed an interest in Plastic Surgery while I was an intern in General Surgery.

After I completed my degrees in General Surgery and Plastic Surgery, I worked in various institutes picking up more experience in the areas of Plastic Surgery in which I was particularly interested.

It has been the endeavor of our entire department to deliver patient-centric care and to use our limited resources for the benefit for the maximum number of patients. We hope to deliver world class standards of surgical services which starts from diagnosis and goes on until the rehabilitation of our patients. I am particularly careful to make the experience of my patients as pleasant as possible with minimal hassles.
