He is the first surgeon from twin states (Telangana & Andhra Pradesh) to successfully complete two year National Board Fellowship in Minimal Access Surgery – FNB (Minimal Access Surgery). To achieve this super speciality degree, he received structured training in laparoscopic, metabolic and bariatric surgeries. He is a member of Obesity & Metabolic Surgery Society of India – OSSI, International Federation for the Surgery of Obesity and Metabolic Disorders – IFSO and a fellow of Association of Minimal Access Surgeons of India – FMAS. He studied MBBS and MS (General Surgery) at Kurnool Medical College. He is a member of Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh – MRCSEd since 2005. He is a Diplomate of National Board since 2006.
He has keen interest in medical research and published several articles in various national and international journals. He is an invited faculty for several national and international conferences and presented several papers and videos in these conferences. He regularly conducts continuing medical education programs for doctors, awareness programs and support group programs to educate general public about Metabolic, Bariatric and Advanced Laparoscopic Surgeries.
His prime area of professional practice is Bariatric & Metabolic Surgery to treat Obesity and its co-morbid medical conditions including Type 2 Diabetes. Metabolic & Bariatric surgeries are the only scientifically proven very safe and highly effective methods for long lasting weight loss, long term remission from type 2 diabetes and other co-morbid medical conditions in significant number of patients. There is a general lack of awareness about the physiology of Obesity and the reasons behind failure of diet control, exercise, low calorie diet products, liposuction and cool sculpting to achieve long lasting weight loss. He is interested in educating physicians, patients, general public about healthy lifestyle including healthy diet, regular food timings, regular physical exercise, adequate sleep, stress free life to prevent Obesity and Bariatric surgery to treat Obesity. He is interested in further research into the reasons why patients achieve long lasting weight loss after Bariatric & Metabolic Surgeries. Based on this we can develop non surgical methods to treat Obesity which is beneficial to several individuals suffering from Obesity who don’t come into the category of Bariatric Surgery. Many people are not aware that Metabolic Surgery is better than medical management in the treatment of type II diabetes with severe obesity. Metabolic surgery results in long term remission and in some, resolution of uncontrolled type II diabetes even in patients without severe obesity.
