From a meager 8-10 major spinal reconstructive procedures in 1999, we are now performing more than a
150  major  spinal reconstructions per year. 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.
