Orthopedic surgeon who has specialized in spinal surgery and been working in this area for over a 15 years. One of the few amongst the orthopedic fraternity in the state of AndhraPradesh & Telangana doing dedicated work in the field of spine, particularly in the management of spinal deformity. Skilled in the management of complicated and complex spinal surgery and has pioneered the management of congenital kyphoscoliosis. Also trained in the minimally invasive techniques in the management of the degenerative and traumatic affections of spine. Equally competent in the management of all traumatic and non- traumatic conditions in orthopedics, both in children and adults
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.
At Kamineni hospitals King Koti which was earlier known as Wockhardt spine centre I have doing the state of art spinal surgery work especially in the area of spinal deformity and I am responsible for the training of a spinal surgery fellow under my guidance.
