    About me

    20+ years of work experience across India’s premier neurosurgery institutes gives me an edge in performing routine as well as complicated neuro-surgical cases. This has also enabled me to gain the reputation of a well-known expert and a doctor of choice for many national and international patients. My wide and varied medical expertise in different aspects of neurosurgery gained from around the world has helped mould me as a capable neurosurgeon exemplifying a never-ending commitment to meet patient needs with compassion and care.

    Being a neurosurgeon is rewarding in many ways, mainly because neurosurgery give me the opportunity to save people’s lives and restore them to normalcy after what could have been a devastating condition or injury. What I value most is the ability to improve my patients’ lives and outlook for their future. I specialize in performing cranial and brain surgeries, complex craniofacial reconstruction operations, awake minimally invasive craniotomy, repair and restoration procedures after peripheral nerve injuries, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) diversion procedures and even functional surgeries to address the aftermath of a neurological injury.

    What I'd like to tell my patients

    Most importantly, neurological conditions are often highly complex. It takes a modern OT setup along with a team of highly trained doctors, experienced anaesthetists and a post-operative care team to provide specialized neurosurgical treatment. My team and I at Moolchand are among the best trained and most experienced in India.

    A perfectly executed neuro-surgical endeavor is a matter of pure delight. The joy and benefits of it extend to the surgical team, the patient, his or her kith and kin, and to the surgical community at large. The positive outcome measures include short hospital stays and fast recoveries – and this defines today’s neurosurgery. Though traditionally considered a specialty of complex and long duration procedures, neurosurgery has made major advancements through latest minimally invasive and neuro-endoscopic procedures.

    At the same time, it is noteworthy that neurosurgical cases can be easily managed not just with latest technologies but with a comprehensive rehabilitation package under the supervision of a competent neurosurgery expert. This also leaves room for the exciting possibility of “going home the same day.” Dedicated to collaborating with patients and their families in an environment of trust and transparency, I always want to know what my patients think of the care they receive from me. I cheerfully embrace my patients’ feedback and work constructively to build a strong patient-doctor relationship.
