My career path

I graduated from TDMC Alleppey in 1993. After completing my diploma and masters in orthopaedics, I started my career in orthopaedics with a brief stint at Lissie Hospital, Kochi. During that time, I developed a true passion for knee arthroscopy and arthroplasty. Soon I joined one year ISAKOS approved fellowship in arthroplasty and arthroscopy at AIMS, Kochi. Subsequently I started my practice at Caritas hospital.Kottayam which was truly a memorable and rewarding experience.

In 2013 , I moved to New Medical Centre, Abu Dhabi, UAE. I am presently working here as a specialist orthopaedic surgeon.

Keep calm and know you’re 1 day closer to a full recovery.
