I am an Orthopedic spine surgeon working in the area of spinal surgery over a decade specializing in the surgical mangement of spinal deformity over a decade. I am also trained in the minimally invasive techniques in treating the degenerative and traumatic affections of spine. I am equally competent in the management of all traumatic  and non- traumatic conditions in orthopedics, both in children and adults. I have done serious work in the managment of both soft tissue and bony deformites occuring in children.
From a meager 8-10 major spinal reconstructive procedures in 1999, I have Performed more than a 100 major  spinal reconstructions in 1996 at NIMS. My work on posterior Hemivertebrectomy in management of neglected congenital scoliosis is well appreciated at the National and International orthopaedic forums. Management of complex trauma, Paediatric orthopaedics and management of neglected limb deformities using  Ilizarov  system are the other areas  of  my expertise. As a faculty at Nizam’s Institute of medical sciences  I was responsible for the training of 3 postgraduate residents per year . All the students who have passed out are into successful practice rendering state of the art orthopaedic services across India and abroad.To offer better care and to advance my work further I moved from NIMS to Kamineni Wockhardt hospitals , kingkoti Hyderabad in  August 2007.
