I am married with a very supportive family. We are blessed with one daughter who is 11 years old. I have a passion for neurosurgery and enjoy my work. I build a good rapport with my patients and staff in the working environment. Being a qualified functional and paediatric neurosurgeon, I am caring about children and families with meticulous clinical management. I am obsessive about my clinical commitments to provide the best care to my patients. I spend a lot of time with my patients to understand the problems and deal with them to the best of my ability. I have a keen interest in research and keep in touch with the latest developments in this field. Other than neurosurgery I enjoy listening to music mostly classical and spend time with my family. I practise Yoga to keep myself fit and balanced both physically and mentallyBack to top
