Academic and Teaching Experience

  • Co-Ordinator, Fellowship Program and Education, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Fortis Escorts Hospital, Jaipur.
  • I have teaching experience of over ten years. I take active in terestin teaching fellows and residents, laying stress on thorough clinical examination and pre operative planning. I ensure that they understand the fine details of surgical anatomy and nuances of surgical steps during the operative procedure. Everyday’s learning or mistake is reinforced as ‘ Lesson of the Day’. Research is high on our priority and residents take active part in maintaining the database and are involved in at least one project.

Operative Experience

  • My basic Orthopaedic Training  was from 1993-1996 at S.M.S Medical College which had an extremely busy trauma department.  I learnt the fine art of Hand surgery in my first year of Orthopaedic Training from Dr. V. K. Pande , an eminent hand surgeon. My second and third year of residency training were in trauma and spine surgery. I gradually became interested in ‘ Reconstruction surgery of Joints’ and their anatomy and bio mechanics.
  • During later part of my training, I spent three years of Senior Residency honing my skills in adult joint reconstruction. I have spent sufficient time in visiting finest centers of joint replacement surgery across the globe and learning from the masters in this field.
  • Currently , the focus of my practice is Joint Replacement and Revision surgery. I have performed more than 10,000 joint replacements  surgeries including computer assisted joint replacements and revision surgeries. I have also had a chance to do live surgeries in other countries like Bangladesh and Vietnam.
