 I graduated with MBBS (1999) from Kasturba Medical College, Manipal which is one of the premier institutes recognised both nationally and internationally. Upon completion of MBBS, I joined J.S.S Medical College, Mysore, to pursue my passion for orthopaedics and completed my post graduation in Orthopaedic surgery. During this period I developed a keen interest towards spine surgery and decided to complete my spine surgery training in the UK.

 After passing the required exams to practice in UK, I joined Spine surgery department at North Tees University Hospital, Stockton-on-Tees in 2003. I started from the grass root level of senior house officer in the spine department during which time I completed MRCS ( Member of Royal College of Surgeons ) from Edinburgh. After doing the required in hospital rotations in various orthopaedic subspecialties I passed my FRCS ( Trauma & Orthopaedics ) from RCSED ( Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh ). During all my training period, I was part of the Spine Surgery Unit which gave me adequate surgical and academical opportunities to train and learn from the best surgeons. Later on, I completed MCh Orthopedics from James Cook University Hospital at Middlesborough. My MCh thesis was published in Bone and Joint Journal -British edition.

 I was then selected for British Orthopedic Association Senior Spine Surgery fellowship for one year at University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff. This was comprehensive spine surgery fellowship programme in a tertiary Level 1 center. I had the opportunity to refine and learn deformity, degenerative, trauma and tumor management in spine surgery . During this time I was invited for a podium presentation of my work at IMAST meeting at Kuala Lumpur. Next was European Spine journal paper publication on  Sacro-iliac joint fusion for low back pain . I have authored a spine implants chapter in a book ‘Radiology of Orthopaedic Implants’ which was published by Springer.

 After my fellowship ,I was appointed as Consultant Spine Surgeon (L) at Salisbury Hospital, Wiltshire, England. Duke of Cornwall Unit in this hospital is one of the UK Spinal cord injuries refferal center. Then we decided to return to our motherland and I joined Yashoda Super Speciality Hospital ,Somajiguda, Hyderabad  as Consultant Spine Surgeon in 2016.

 I am an active sports person and cricket is on top of the list. I have represented as captain of my medical college university cricket team during my undergraduate days and played for Durham City and Stokesley cricket clubs in England.
