What inspired you to become a surgeon? Tell us about your journey.

I always wanted to be a surgeon, ever since my final year duty in surgery at GMC Amritsar, I was fascinated towards this branch since it’s exciting and full of challenges though more demanding and riskier as compared to medicine branches but at least you get an instant result and instant satisfaction.
