What attracted you to neurosurgical and spine practice? Who has been your source of inspiration for all this while?

It was certainly a matter of luck that I chanced upon neurosurgical and spine practice. However, it is an undeniable fact that the brain is the superpower of the body, which attracted me to this area of specialization. I pursued my Bachelor of Medicine (MBBS) from Sardar Patel Medical College, Bikaner, followed by a Masters in Surgery from King George’s Medical University, Lucknow. To further hone my expertise, I pursued Super Specialization (M. Ch) in neurosurgery from the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER), Chandigarh.

All my teachers and especially my mentor, Dr AK Singh who is presently serving in the Department of Neurosurgery at Gobind Ballabh Pant Institute of Medical Education Institute and Research, New Delhi has been the beacon of light in my life.
