I was born in my village, Khiwandi in Rajasthan and started my education in Mumbai.
I have completed my surgical training in university-recognized posts in hospitals in Mumbai and completed my DNB (General Surgery) from National Board of Examination, New Delhi. I received training in General Surgery, including various specialties like Orthopedics, Burns, Plastic Surgery, Pediatric Surgery and Urology and Oncosurgery. This period was vital to my acquisition of fundamental surgical principles and techniques. During this period I performed most of the minor as well as major operations, elective as well as emergency operations.
After gaining adequate experience in General Surgery and post-graduate qualification, I developed keen interest in Laparoscopic Surgery. During my Clinical Fellowship in Minimal Access ( Laparoscopic ) Surgery at Sir Gangaram Hospital, New Delhi India , I gained adequate exposure in various cases such as Cholecystectomy, Hepatobiliary Surgery, Endohernia surgery, Appendectomy, Solid organ surgery including liver/spleen/adrenals/kidney/pancreas, Endoscopic neck surgery including parathyroid and thyroid, Colorectal surgery, Thoracoscopic surgery, Axilloscopy and other advanced laparoscopic surgical maneuvers. Later I also received training in Upper G.I. endoscopy.
I was fortunate to be awarded the highly prestigious, Dr. P.N.

I joined the most renowned department of Leeds Institute for Minimally Invasive Therapy for Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery and Pancreatic Surgery Fellowship Training, at United Leeds Teaching Hospitals, NHS trust, under Professor M J McMahon from March 2002 - May 2003. I also procured the Diploma in Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery from European Institute of Tele Surgery, Strasbourg, France.
