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.

“My father-in-law’s cancer fight!”
Dr. Sachin Ambekar is one of the finest surgeons in Delhi whom I met for treatment of my father-in-law, Mr Vijay Chand Mehra.
My father-in-law had stage IV, colon cancer, cardiac problem, diabetes, hypertension and other associated conditions. In nutshell, it was a complicated case for any surgeon. However, Dr. Sachin’s expertise, pleasant smiles and comforting words relieved our stress and fears about the surgery. He was involved right from the start. Everything before and after the colon cancer surgery was organized quickly and efficiently.
The level of care at Moolchand is higher than any hospital I’ve ever seen. They cared about my father-in-law as a person, and not just a patient. I wish Dr. Sachin and Moolchand all the best!

“Compassionate care at Moolchand! You’re just the best!”
I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to the entire surgery team at Moolchand. Recently, I developed an infection to my left thumb. After lingering for two days, I visited Moolchand with considerable swelling and pain.
With alacrity and care, a young doctor asked me to accompany him to the Emergency Unit. He gave slew of instructions to his junior surgeon as to how to treat me. After the procedure was over, the young doctor came to the unit, looked up my medical prescription and increased the dose of antibiotics. Again, I was touched by his compassionate intervention and I sincerely feel that it might not have happened if I had been in any other hospital. I inferred that the young doctor, Dr. Sachin is full of perspicacity and that there is no red tapism at least in the surgical unit of Moolchand.
The purpose of writing this long e-mail is to express my heartfelt thanks to Moolchand’s surgery team, especially to Dr. Sachin Ambekar.

“Trust your doctors, follow their advice and remain positive”
It was a medical emergency when I was admitted in Moolchand’s ED on September 12th. My lower abdomen pain was acute and severe. Soon my condition was diagnosed and I was headed for appendicitis surgery by Dr Sachin Ambekar.
At the very first meeting he put me at ease, answered my questions patiently and discussed my course of treatment. He was thorough, gentle and caring which instilled confidence in me and everything went great. The support staff and nurses were also very professional. They treated me with the utmost respect and sensitivity and I did not have to worry about anything. Thank you Moolchand!
