I am skilled in general and laparoscopic surgery with over six years of experience. I have a special interest in laparoscopic and bariatric surgery. As an academic surgeon I have been involved in clinical and experimental research on the role of minimally invasive gastrointestinal procedures in management of obesity, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome.
I have special expertise in laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy for anti-obesity surgery and have performed numerous bariatric surgeries in north India. I have special expertise in 2 port scarless technique for gall bladder, appendix and hernia surgeries. At present I have the largest series for scarless two port technique in north India, especially for young and paediatric groups. I have extensive experience in MIPH (Minimal Invasive Procedure for Haemorrhoids), the latest technique for painless and bloodless treatment of piles. I am also adept in LIFT (Ligation of Intersphincteric Fistula Tract) surgery, the latest technique for treating fistula in ano.
In addition, I serve as faculty at medical colleges. I am regularly invited to various national and international surgical conferences to present scientific papers and surgical video presentations.

What I'd like to tell my patients
Surgery is sometimes the inevitable recourse taken to in the treatment of diseases. However, I would like to reassure my patients that diseases that were once feared are now treated in a patient friendly way. Advances in surgery have led to miniaturization which is laparoscopy and minimal access surgery. You no longer need to be afraid of scars and the pain of surgery.
Another advent is bariatric surgery. Patients who are suffering from social stigma of being obese now have the option of obesity treatment (bariatric surgery).
Whether it’s general or bariatric surgery, I promise to get you back to your family and doing the things you love as soon as possible.
“Thank you doctor for your kindness and devotion!”
I had been experiencing severe upper abdominal pain for the past 6 months. On investigative work-up at Moolchand I was diagnosed with acute calculous cholecystitis. Unaware of cholecystitis and its treatment, I had many doubts and fears. I was also afraid of catching any infection postoperatively, but Dr. Sachin Ambekar explained it all very patiently and took care of me.
Today, just two days after the surgery, I am feeling much better. Dr. Sachin gave me a healthier and happier life. Thank you doctor for your kindness and devotion!
D/o Ms. Motiya
“You’re the best!”
Dr. Sachin is one of the best doctors we have come across. My mother, Ms Motiya Devi aged 92 years, was operated by him for colon cancer. Considering my mother’s age and condition, it was a difficult, high-risk surgery. Dr. Sachin put in his best efforts that led to successful results and helped my mother survive.
The most important thing about him is that he treats his patients with a lot of care, warmth and respect. He is extremely approachable and listens patiently which is very rare in today’s time. God Bless him!
“Excellent staff and surgeons!”
I am writing to express my sincerest gratitude towards the surgical team at Moolchand. From the time of my admission to the period immediately after my gallbladder surgery (laparoscopic cholecystectomy), in fact throughout the entire process, I was treated in a friendly and professional manner. I would like to thank everyone involved in getting my surgical care.
Special thanks to Dr. Sachin. I also appreciate the warmth and support accorded to me by the nurses, catering and housekeeping personnel.
