Completed 1000 successful joint replacement surgeries
Today marks a major milestone in my professional career. I completed 1000 successful joint-replacement surgeries (that includes total knee replacements, partial knee replacements, and total hip replacement surgeries) both, with and without the robot. I still clearly remember the days in school when the only clarity I had is that I didn’t want to be a doctor seeing how busy my parents were, and then being convinced by my dad and uncle to keep that option open. And after my 12th class, joining in MBBS and meeting some of my best friends, and my future brother-in-law, Dr. Kushal, and enjoyed the course.
After that, the path was quite obvious. I wanted to pursue orthopaedics like my father, and I even enrolled in Sanchaiti Hospital where he studied 20 years ago. It was a tough journey. It was not easy always. Sleepless nights, night duties, sometimes one full week in the hospital without going back to the room. After completing my course, I joined under dad at Sunshine hospitals and there’s been no looking back. This wonderful milestone could not have been possible if it weren’t for the platform and opportunities given to me by my biggest idol, my dad, Dr. Gurava Reddy, and the support from my family- my mother, my wife, my daughter, my sister, and my brother-in-law, and of course, all my teachers and every single patient who placed their trust in me.
