I graduated from M.K.C.G Medical College in 1986. Following a national selection process I got an admission to specialist training in general surgery in V.S.S Medical College Hospital in 1988. I obtained my masters degree in general surgery in 1991. I submitted a thesis on Hydatidosis and was awarded M.S general surgery in 1991. I also conducted a research project on splenectomy for Sickle Cell Disorder and wrote a thesis with Prof B.P.Mishra. This was awarded a national prize for research.
I joined Safdarjung Hospital in New Delhi as a Surgical Registrar with a special interest in Gastrointestinal Surgery. My exposure to surgery and especially to trauma was very good in the tertiary centre and this developed my experience further. I reached the UK in 1994 after passing my PLAB examination and was trained in Wales and obtained his CCST in October 2004. I was appointed as consultant surgeon in November 2004, specialising in colorectal cancer surgery and inflammatory bowel disease.
I am married to Radha and I have a son called Naren. In my free time I like to play chess and cricket.
