The journey

After completing my UG at Rajah Muthiah Medical College and my PG from Madras Medical College, I went straight to the United Kingdom, where I pursued my higher surgical training to complete my MRCS & FRCS

During this period, I trained as a Liver Transplant Surgeon at the prestigious Liver Unit, Queen Elizabeth University Hospitals and The Sheila Sherlock Liver Centre, The Royal Free Hospital, London. They are the busiest Liver units across Europe.

I was trained in Living Donor Liver Transplantation at The Asan Medical Centre, Seoul, the UK, which performs over 400 Liver transplants annually.

Since returning to India, I have been involved in over 750 Liver transplants and have been instrumental in setting up multiple Liver units locally and abroad. I was recognised with an Award of Appreciation by the Govt of Tamil Nadu in 2017 for my contribution to the field of transplantation in Tamil Nādu.

I usually start my day playing badminton or cycling. This helps me to be energised throughout the day. I spend my leisure time reading books. I make it a point to read at least 10 pages every day.  

I also love to travel, and I often plan trips with my family & friends. Every year I look forward to exploring new places, catching up on some life goals, and allowing me to meet people and make new friends.

With my association with Chennai Liver Foundation, most of my weekends are filled with spreading awareness about liver diseases and its prevention. We do free screening and advice the proper treatment to all those in the rural communities.
