About me

I am skilled in general and laparoscopic surgery with over six years of experience. I have a special interest in laparoscopic and bariatric surgery. As an academic surgeon I have been involved in clinical and experimental research on the role of minimally invasive gastrointestinal procedures in management of obesity, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome.

I have special expertise in laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy for anti-obesity surgery and have performed numerous bariatric surgeries in north India. I have special expertise in 2 port scarless technique for gall bladder, appendix and hernia surgeries. At present I have the largest series for scarless two port technique in north India, especially for young and paediatric groups. I have extensive experience in MIPH (Minimal Invasive Procedure for Haemorrhoids), the latest technique for painless and bloodless treatment of piles. I am also adept in LIFT (Ligation of Intersphincteric Fistula Tract) surgery, the latest technique for treating fistula in ano.

In addition, I serve as faculty at medical colleges. I am regularly invited to various national and international surgical conferences to present scientific papers and surgical video presentations.

What I'd like to tell my patients

Surgery is sometimes the inevitable recourse taken to in the treatment of diseases. However, I would like to reassure my patients that diseases that were once feared are now treated in a patient friendly way. Advances in surgery have led to miniaturization which is laparoscopy and minimal access surgery. You no longer need to be afraid of scars and the pain of surgery.

Another advent is bariatric surgery. Patients who are suffering from social stigma of being obese now have the option of obesity treatment (bariatric surgery).

Whether it’s general or bariatric surgery, I promise to get you back to your family and doing the things you love as soon as possible.
