I graduated from Bombay University in 1989. I then trained as a general surgeon and acquired the basic surgical qualification, Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons (FRCS). I commenced my training in plastic surgery in 1992 in India and acquired the MCh(Plast) from the University of Bombay. I then continued my training in plastic surgery in the UK in London, Wales, and then completed my higher surgical training in plastic surgery in the West Midlands. After acquiring the Intercollegiate Specialty Fellowship in Plastic Surgery FRCS(Plast) I completed a Cosmetic Surgery Fellowship at McIndoe Surgical Centre at East Grinstead, and a prestigious Fellowship in Microsurgery at Chang Gung Hopsital in Taiwan. I was appointed as consultant in plastic and reconstructive surgery at Royal Preston Hospital, Preston, UK.
I undertake a full range of cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgical procedures. I have an active and busy cosmetic surgery practice in Fylde Coast, Preston, Chorley and East Lancashire.

I supervise Master’s students at the University of Central Lancashire, Preston (UCLAN) conducting basic research in plastic surgery. One of the student’s research projects involves laboratory research in cell growth of scar tissue around breast implants. The second student’s research project is to generate a computer model of blood vessel flow in microsurgery. I have an active interest in research and teaching in plastic surgery, having published over 40 papers in medical literature and presentations at national and international scientific conferences.
I am currently the Clinical Director in plastic surgery at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust and am responsible for this department that serves the needs of plastic surgery of a population of about 1.2 million in the North West of England.

I enjoy travelling and meeting people from different cultures and societies. This has helped me in listening and responding to different people's needs and aspirations. I often spend a Saturday afternoon at the village green playing cricket. Reading has always been a hobby, while of late, editing movies has piqued my interest.
