AOA Fellow (Melbourne, Australia),
Combined Neurosurgery and Orthopedic Spine Fellowship (Amrita Institute, Kochi)
After completing his MBBS from JNMC (Belgaum), he was selected for orthopedic residency at the prestigious PGIMER University, Chandigarh in a national level entrance examination. He underwent 3 years of rigorous orthopedic training at this busy hospital which caters to almost 5 states as an apex referral center. After completing his orthopedic residency, he worked as a registrar in the same institute for another 2 years. During this period, he developed interest in spine surgery after working in the spine unit for a year and half. He was selected for a Australian Orthopedic Association (AOA) accredited fellowship at Epworth Hospitals, Melbourne where he undertook further training in orthopedic subspecialties. He was awarded the Asian Association of Dynamic Osteosynthesis (AADO) fellowship to work at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Hong Kong for a month. He was awarded the Diploma SICOT at the SICOT 2011 XXV Triennial Congress, Prague, Czech Republic after a written and oral examination. In pursuit for further training in spine surgery, he undertook a combined neurosurgery and orthopedic spine surgery fellowship at Amrita Institute, Kochi. The fellowship involved training in both neurosurgical and orthopedic aspects of spine surgery. He gained experience in microsurgical techniques, deformity corrections and spinal tumour surgeries during this period. He was awarded the SICOT Spine fellowship at Aarhus University Hospital, Denmark where he worked for a short term to learn various aspects of minimally invasive spine surgery, revision spine surgery and complex spinal deformity corrections. He was awarded the Scoliosis Research Society (SRS) Global Outreach Scholarship award 2013 to attend the prestigious IMAST meeting at Vancouver, Canada. He has a special interest in minimally invasive spine surgery, spinal deformity corrections and spinal tumour surgeries. He has presented papers at several international conferences and published a number of articles in peer reviewed international journals. His publications have been cited 26 times in various international papers published in renowned journals. The paper "Outcome of spinal decompression in cauda equina syndrome presenting late in developing countries- case series of 50 cases. European Spine Journal 2011 Dec; 20(12):2235-9" was recognized as a study of high value in the yearly European spine journal review 2011.
