How does it feel to be conferred with one of the most prestigious awards in the medical field?
Many professionals  have been working tirelessly and selflessly in the field of Transplantation. I can only humbly accept this award on their behalf.

Tell me about your journey so far.
After graduating from AFMC (Pune) in 1972, and completing my MS in General Surgery in 1976, from GSVM Medical College, Kanpur, I went to UK, where after FRCS, I underwent training, at the Institute of Urology, London, in Transplantation Surgery, which was still in a nascent stage. 

I came back to India in 1988 and set up Transplant Centers in three states, first at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, New Delhi, followed by one at Noida Medicare Center, Noida, UP and then at Artemis Healthcare Institute, Gurgaon.
What has been your experience regarding kidney transplants.
